I do much of my shopping online, but I also shop at Brooks and my local mens shops. I also have some decent outlets nearby.

What are you struggling to find?

im in baltimore, the only tailor i would use for stuff i really care about is fields in dc. so i guess my answer is an hour drive each way.

If it's any indication, I fly 6 hours to get my hair cut! Luckily I can knock off a trip to my tailor at the same time.

I'm fortunate enough to be right in town and only a handful of miles from two or more quality tailors.

But, years ago, I lived in a fairly distant suburb and didn't mind the two hour round trip commute to visit them.

I'm not sufficiently married to MTM or bespoke fashion that I would regularly spend the money to travel out of the country, or even fully cross country, but I would take advantage of English and Italian services when I found myself there for other reasons.

5994 miles to be nearly precise. The approximate distance from the UK to Hong Kong.

Sadly, take a look at your tailors age, then take a look at your own age. Chances are for some of us, we are going to outlive our tailors, and or the tailor will retire. Since most kids don't grow up wanting to be a master tailor the sad fact of life is bespoke garments by a master tailor are going to be super expensive not too far in the future.

More seasonal type items. I would like to find a navy blue, half-lined linen sport coat. DB gray flannel. I've purchased from STF and Clothes Horse and a few other places.

Have you been able to find seasonal items?

Thanks.

Rob
