D, if you've got the time, you're probably better off going to Tip Top for the fabrics, especially if you're using Tim. $40 a yard (need about 1.5) for basically everything at Tip Top. Much larger selection than Tim will have. I'm sure LS would be fine, but would be more costly.
I hear you, Ed. If I can continue to find high end stuff at fantastic prices, I'll stick with that. But I'm a little weird fit for trousers, and CMT gives me more choices for fabric and style, and presumably better fit. I was happy with my LNC trousers - not perfect, and not nearly as nice as the Incotex I have, but I'd say on par with Zanella, and a bargain.
For my wife, bless her gorgeous self, she has a hard time finding clothes off the rack that fit, are well made, and don't cost a fortune. Women's clothes are a rip off, at many levels. If Tim works, she'll be getting better quality and better fit for a better price. Plus it's fun.
