In my opinion BEWARE!
I have had good success with Astor & Black. I did the extact opposite of the above, in that I took baby steps in the ordering process and did not go all in with their highest end fabric. I started with an order of shirts and then later ordered a suit. FWIW, I took the Astor & black suit and my Indochino suit to my tailor and he favored the Astor & Black for construction, fit, fabric and price to value. I just wish they had an online or direct purchase venue. My guess is that a very high percentage of the cost goes to the sales rep. I don't mind people making a good living, put when you know what you want and how you want it, why give alot away to get measured?
