I went the other two "famous" mid range tailors as well and these are the starting prices that I was told:
Half Canvas 4300
Full Canvas 4600
Half Canvas 3800
Full Canvas 5800
Full Canvas 4900
To be honest, you can say I am a sheep and whatnot, I just decided to go to DB based upon the recommendations from the HK thread. Ricky from DB was a younger gentleman, but he was very genuine and nice and took the time to explain everything to me as I didnt know much about suiting. I went in on a Tuesday and was able to get my first fitting in on the Friday, and then the 2nd fitting on the next Friday and was able to get everything done in the 3rd week Tuesday. He had an older gentleman tailor with him when I did the fittings as well.
Regarding Jantzen, I used to go to them a few years ago, but this year I went back and I can tell you that their customer service to me sucks balls. I can honestly say I am pretty tolerant and patient, but there was absolutely no customer service. I went to them as a new customer again to get remeasured, and when I got my shirt, it was wrong in all the places, even one of the girls working there thought there was something wrong. However, it still did not fit right the second time, so I had them fix it again. The people working there just seem uninterested. Perhaps, I was only ordering 1 shirt from them at that time. I do not think I will go back to them again. Therefore, I ended up making 3 other shirts at DB as well. They were similar price range at $450.
I paid 5600 for a navy two piece VBC Super 110s. It was recommended by him, do you think that is a decent fabric and fair price? As my first real suit, this is still all new to me, so I hope I made the right decision. I had a very good experience with Ricky though. Pics to come soon.
