Hey guys! This is my second post here. Great forum by the way. I am someone who was heavily into fashion when I was younger and am now getting back into it 'whole hog'. My wife and I have a place in London; however, I wasn't sure if there was anywhere in and around Pittsburgh, PA. or Columbus, OH. that might be sufficient for what I want. I have a feeling the answer is no, but I wanted to ask anyway. Basically, I want to have an entire bespoke dress wardrobe made. Somewhere around 6-8 suits, 2-4 blazers, 12-15 shirts, 2-4 trousers, 2 or 3 pairs of shoes, and some matching belts. I would also probably do a few ties, although I am partial to my Hermes ones I currently have. I have had some MTM things done in the past at Zilli in London (2 suits, 6 shirts, pair of shoes, matching belt, vest, and cravat) but wanted to find out what places were 'better' when it came to quality and options. Here is an example of one of my MTM pieces; it was actually my wedding outfit. Go easy on me! LOL! I enjoy top quality and believe in getting what you pay for; so I'm alright with things being expensive; I just want them to be worth it. I know that Astor & Black in right in Columbus but i believe this forum has sort of debunked that place as garbage; am I right? I remember reading a thread about their quality and business 'practices'. I figure I will have to wait until I go back to London to have this done and visit places like Kilgour, T&A, etc? I know Zilli also does bespoke stuff but am not sure how they stack up. Thank you very much in advance for all of your help. I cannot wait to be a regular contributor to the forum! If you could go easy on the abbreviations; I don't know much of the lingo yet.
