In asking the question, I should have defined my expectations. Obviously I am aware that a RTW suit will probably never be as well fit as a MTM. That being said, I don't think it too much to have a tailor interested in more than just the vertical and horizontal sizing (sleeves, pant legs, waist). As well, I am not that interested in someone who will tell me how "if I was doing a MTM then...". Is it unrealistic that one can locate a nice (Oxxford, Brioni, Canali, Borelli, upper end Hickey or such) and so long as it generally fits well, have it tailored so it looks good? The best guy I have ever found is the guy who owns Franco's...but I'd prefer not to pay retail to get a good tailor. If I am washed up or wrong in my expectations, pls whack me on the head.
