So first post, I need a couple new suits for work and came across this forum (learned a lot about suits in the process!). After digging through the search function, I came up with a couple tailors I've reached out to. I'm getting mixed results:
1) Garrison Bespoke (fka Fifth on King)
- Minimum $1,200 for the "most basic suit you can buy", my contact said I'd be looking at something closer to $1,500 all-in.
2) Trend Custom Tailors
- Minimum $1,500 starting for a plain navy suit, and would take 9 weeks to complete (pretty new to MTM, but that seems kind of long)
-Minimum $1,300 for any kind of MTM suit.
Is this the new reality? I read threads where you could get a quality suit for $800-$1000, but is that a thing of the past? Any help would be much appreciated.
