I just stepped in and ordered a midnight navy 2-button suit. Should receive in approx. 4 weeks and will update with pics.
I was quite impressed with the sheer amount of customization options. We'll see how everything comes out.
No - first time. But has stellar 4.5/5.0 average reviews on Yelp (albiet probably by novices).
The suits they had in the small office showroom were pretty well put together, good canvassing, although for the base "stock" fabric that comes at that price level, it's a *bit* rough...not terrible though. Definitely wearable to the office in a high finance setting as long as its a solid color (hence my choice for solid midnight navy).
$495 for basic suit. $595 for basic suit + 2 custom-sized shirts + 1 custom-sized tie (limited patterns available at this price level).
Yelp reviews were stellar, and the construction I saw on the jackets in the showroom was good. I was impressed enough to go ahead and give them a shot. I'll hear back in 4-5 weeks.
Yeah, if all goes well, I see this as a "similar" / alternative to Thick as Thieves for those of us living in NYC.
You can do canvas chest piece, true half-canvas, or full-canvas.
I chose half-canvas (including lapel). They seemed like very sturdy/well-stitched suits -- the ones hanging on the racks in the showroom.
