You can buy clothes online? I was not aware of this. Thank you so much for sharing this great insight and your extensive knowledge with us.

Decided to pull the trigger on a Brioni and some JM Weston shoes. It is the very best that I can afford for now.

You are definitely a sock. Well played.

I can't answer for Asia, but I can say that in Mexico City, you can get a good-looking bespoke-with-two-fittings CTM suit, full-canvassed, for under 500 USD. If you buy basic fabric from the tailor, It will be under 600 USD. Will it be a Huntsman, a Davide Taub, or an Anderson & Shepard? No, of course not. But it will have as good a silhouette and fit better than any MTM suit I have seen, except perhaps Alan Flusser Custom. You can also get bespoke Goodyear-welted balmoral boots, made on bespoke lasts, for under 300 USD; the boots will be made using only natural materials. And you can get bespoke Goodyear-welted wholecut balmorals for under 380 USD: the fit will be better than any RTW shoe you've ever tried, and you will be hard pressed to tell the difference between them and a pair of--say--Crockett and Jones.

And if you want a bespoke suit that can compete with those produced by the top Savile Row houses, that too can be had for under 1300 USD, including basic fabric.

The catch--if there is one--is that this can't be done in a week. You need at least two weeks for the shoes and three for the suit. If you want it faster, you'll have to pay a premium for a rush job.

See my posts on bespoke makers in Mexico City for details.
