After literally reading through hours upon hours of past threads, I have decided it may be best to consolidate a definitive (and current) "SF-approved" list of tailors who regularly travel to NYC (or are located in the NYC metro area) that make high quality full bespoke suits for sub-$3,500 (therefore representing a good value against off-the-rack majors like Isaia, Kiton, Brioni).
Essentially, this should be like the "OTR working hierarchical suit quality" list, but for bespoke available to New York City (although obviously not necessarily exclusively). It should also ONLY list the tailors who are well documented to do "exceptional" work, regardless of price.
Please feel free to adjust / add your suggestions to this list below (with reason or personal experience to back it up).
Neapolitan House Style
– Napolisumisura ("NSM") – Suit (€1,600 + Good (H&S or VBC) Fabric (~€140 / meter * 3.5 meters) = ~€2,090 * FX (1.2416)) = ~$2,600
– Rubinacci ( )
– Volpe ( )
– Solito ( )
Classic British/HK House Style
– W.W. Chan – Suit ($1,315+, basted fitting is add'l $200) = $1,515+
