Not surprisingly, I have done the bespoke jeans thing.
Didnt really work out for me. Found some denim that looked OK and felt OK. Unfortunately it shrunk like crazy and left me with something unwearable.
Had a couple of (mildly amusing) Vietnam hiccups in the process. The tailor copied the Levis pocket design and stitched in fake red Levis tags to the seams, figuring "who on earth would want jeans made by Mr Phu of Nguyen Dinh Chieu Street when they could have Levis?"
Anyhow, the markets have crappy denim, and the shrinkage killed them for me. Gave them to my driver when I moved house.

well by that rationale you shouldnt get tailor made suits either, just canvassed RTW
