Are you on crack? Unless your familiarity with G&H is from the 70s, your numbers are absurd. They start MTM around 1000, and this is not the full MTM even. It's MTM with a fused coat, add another 1000 and the suit will be full canvas, add another 1000 on top of that again and it's bespoke.
However, they do have certain periods where the promote certain offerings and give discounts. Last time, if I remember correctly, they were offering MTM half-canvas at 800 and full canvas at 1700, so if you have time to wait you can be opportunistic and wait until one of these campaigns come along.
And by the way, MTM means Made To Measure, Ie not the stuff they sell out of bicester village, and certainly not at 175-300. Made to measure means that they take your measurements and then make the item custom to your order. There are no sizes as it is, as it's name indicates, made to your measures. What separates this from bespoke is that they will make the item in the factory with a standard pattern adapted to your measurements, whereas for full bespoke they draw up new patterns based on your measurements and essentially build the suit from scratch around your figure.
If you are mistaking RTW for MTM and MTM for Bespoke, your post makes more sense, but if you actually mean what you say, you are either delusional or a compulsive liar, because the numbers you've been giving are absurd.
With regards to their fabrics, I think I remember reading somewhere that they have in the neighbourhood of 20 000 fabrics available for bespoke items. I can't seem to find the source, so I can't provide a reference (and I may be mistaken), but the number is certainly a high one in either case, and I can assure you Loro Piana are among them.
