It was the same at NSM i saw mina a grand total of 3 times and the last was to pick up a shirt i ordered the 2nd time i saw her so the suit itself was just order, basted fitting (held together with white threads + no pockets etc cut in yet), the next time was the forward fitting and when i tried it on and nothing was wrong i walked out with it and only had to come back one more time for my shirt and tie that i ordered from her. Then again its a bit unfair to compare this to Chinese MTM i guess so in this case he should probably be wanting to go with at least 3 fittings lol

Yep...Some can def do it with just 1 fitting...

That's the importance of getting the right measurements AND fitting the garment a few times to ensure everything's right. For the tailor to get it right the first fit would be great, but there are times when a couple of fittings are necessary.
