I had a few MTM pieces done by Flusser several years ago via Saks but they were made by M. Greenfield, I believe. Quite nice and still holding up well.
As for Southwick, they used to be Paul Stuart's suitmaker of choice, prior to the work being farmed out to Canada's Samuelsohn. The garments are fully canvassed ala Hickey Freeman, Golden Fleece and Norman Hilton. The prices seem to be in line for MTM.
