Is Freeman's Sporting Goods the easiest way to get a MTM Greenfield suit made?
I don't think Freeman's does MTM, just OTR. Easiest way is to go to a tailor that uses Greenfield, or Brooks Brothers.

I think that's correct but I'm not 100% sure.

There are a few articles out there that focus more on the Boardwalk Empire wardrobe. If I remember right, they used vintage catalogs that included fabric swatches and had mills reproduce some of those fabrics.
Two more things:
They may take walkins, but they certainly don't encourage it. On one hand, I wouldn't trek out there assuming I could get a suit made. On the other, if you call first it's probably easier for them to say no
On Wall Street, I've read the Flusser thing elsewhere. I'm going to put two and two together and bet Flusser-designed, Greenfield-made.
Greenfield handles large orders for Flusser. Basically the in house shop at Flusser makes clothing for new customers for their pattern to be established or small orders. MG would make clothes for those who were clients for years that didn't even need fittings and went right to the slip on phase.
