P.S. someone really needs to either compile a list of all these resource (MTM, bespoke, etc.; measuring quality, construction, etc.) or a mechanism for doing a Zagat style survey (part survey, part wiki).
Well, with mytailor.com you can't order a suit through the mail with self-measurement. If you want a suit from them you have to go to get measured by them during one of their US tours. With mycustomtailor.com you can measure yourself and order the whole suit online.
Personally, I have to agree DH. Measuring yourself involves quite a gamble and for $300 it may not be worth it unless you are impossible to fit OTR (though, this might also make it difficult to measure yourself). I've bought Hickey-Freeman, Corneliani, and Zegna off of ebay for less than that price. For a little more than $400 you can get a fully canvassed Hickey Freeman from the outlet stores. I've even seen Oxxford and Canali on ebay for around that price.
Though, I guess if you want to do what the guy from fedoralounge did and order a suit that's hard to find these days in a style that you really like, then this may be the way to get what you want without spending $1000+
