It also helps that one likes the tailor's "house Style" A garment could well fit perfectly but not really relect the client's
taste. I have had only had two bespoke projects, one in Spain and one in South America. years ago. Both were unsuccesful, not
beause they didn't fit properly. But because they reflected the then local taste. In both instances I wanted them to copy
my Ivy trad Brooks Brothers jacket style. What I got was an "interpretation". I've seen examples of of the work of
some of the favored bespoke tailors in Style Forum, at least one of whom I would never consider because my
taste does not conform to their "house style"
