I have spent the past couple of hours digging through the various threads about MTM and bespoke tailors local in Toronto, and also some reviews of some of the travelling tailors... specifically the Hemrajani Brothers (MyTailor.com) I am looking for a textured black suit for my wedding... my budget is ~$1000, so wanted to know what my best option was. Today, I got fitted by Andre Lani in Toronto for MyTailor.com and he was really great... I brought my last tailored suit (a decent one made in Bangkok by Crown Tailors, but with really horrible fabric), as a comparison. I chose a medium thickness black herringbone design and there are three price-points I was given: $1295 for a Scabal Super 130 $1095 for a Holland & Sherry Super 130 $895 for another Italian fabric - Super 120 I think 1. Are the price points decent? Which is the best "value" considering my budget? 2. MyTailor.com is good for suits? I read mixed reviews... 3. Should I specify a high button stance, full canvas, and slim fit? Anything other recommendations? 4. Should I be worried that this was the only fitting? He said any alterations can be done with a local tailor and then they would reimburse me... 5. Should I check out someone local instead? (Harry Rosen MTM? Don Lee?) 6. I got 3" notch lapels, no vents, no pleats, no cuffs... any other suggestions? Thoughts appreciated!
