Some of those Guild of Crafts models cross the line into Bad Taste That Only The Rich Can Afford. I think they are the only maker on this thread who I don't like that much, and they are by far the most expensive of the bespoke makers in the Tokyo area at least.

I used to work in their neighborhood in Kobe. I'm going to jaunt over there soon. If it's alright with them, I might take pictures and post them here.

I believe they have a small RTW range, but it is only sold in the Osaka shop, there is a few in his Japanese website.
