The price is probably comparable. At this point, I'm willing to pay premium to get a competent tailor.
Here is Sigfrieds web site.http://hartmannstailoring.com/
On Saturday, I went downtown with a few trousers to try Mahiras's.http://www.mahiras.com/
I like both these guys. They are very opinionated. I want that in a tailor.
They both hate the tight, high water fit of Style Forum trousers.
Saturday, at Mahira's when I suggested the pants needed still more tapering, he stared at me like I was Forrest Gump.
The last time I suggested this to Sigried, he told me I should buy some ballet tights.
Sigfried is German -- very German. There are rules! Flat front, no cuffs: pleated, cuffs.
I always feel like Bertie Wooster talking to Jeeves.
Sigfried's shop is across the street from Nordstroms but he claims he hasn't been in the store in 12 years. He said looking at the suits would give him a heart attack.
Keep me posted.
