I have used a local "tailor" to have suits made for some time knowing that he sends measurements to Gilibertos and then does some of the finishing in his own shop.  I have had mixed results with this approach.  I have also been fortunate to have a true master tailor locally that I have started to use and have been pleased with the consistency, quality, etc. to the point that I am now willing to pay 50-75% more to purchase from him.  I was wondering the thoughts or experiences of others with these "factory" type shops - I was actually expecting greater consistency than I actually received. Also, anyone know what they charge the local "tailor" to make a suit (excluding fabric)?
