Really? Okay, thanks for the clarification.
I need to buy a fucking suit but I am going to get a Margiela or Balenciaga and just get it altered. The idea of fittings over and over doesn't appeal to me and I just generally hate wearing suits. I prefer a jacket/dress pant, less stuffy looking imo.
I get my bespokes done in one fitting. They can actually get them cut and basted for the jacket fitting in 24 hours, if I ask - which is what I might be doing tomorrow. 8 fittings is ridiculous, especially considering how the back and sleeves of CDHagg's jacket fits.
FlyingMonkey is right too, you can get bespoke in Tokyo for $2000. The big name mills have their flagship shops and run expensive MTM for 150,000Y, department stores have MTM for like 100,000. If you skip the big markups like that, you can go full bespoke for the same or less.
