Fair enough - there is definitely a price difference between Solito and Chan though Chan is getting up there for the good fabrics (Lesser & Harrisons, etc.). But he's charging a lot less than typical NY bespoke and, I believe, less than Oxxford MTM these days. I guess it's more of an attempt to justify this experiment to myself but I'd tend to group anything that costs less than 3k for a 2-piece in the same category.
