It's not. But at this point we are no longer discussing the suit itself but rather the logistics of acquire it.
Many men who can patronize Kiton RTW or Attolini MTM live in cities that are not served by visiting bespoke tailors. The fact that they might be able to get a suit that fits somewhat better becomes secondary to the logistics of traveling to a city where said tailor can be found a couple times a year.
Not to say men don't do it because they do. But for every man who travels by plane a couple times a year for fittings, there are probably ten men that don't.
