No plans to do a trunk show down in LA. SF more likely.

Hi Akoustas - In Japan the Ring Jacket shops generally only stock up to size 50 or 52, but most of our North American stockists will have bigger sizes (up to 56 or in some cases 58).
I was fitted by Sasmoto (Ring's Sales Manager) at a Khakis of Carmel trunk show in San Franciso. I went with a custom pattern rather than making adjustments to a RTW model....I did this based on Sasamoto's recommendation. It's was much more expensive, but I was/am extremely happy with the jacket. Their prices vary depending on the fabric, but I believe you can do their basic MTM with a mid range fabric for somewhere around $1,600 (suit)..@justinkapur can confirm. You don't get any fittings either way. You get measured and the garment is delivered in about 8-10 weeks. Here is my jacket
Thanks, @Murlsquirl. That's a good looking jacket. I didn't quite get if the $1,600 figure is for a custom pattern or modified RTW. If it's the latter, would you mind saying how much a custom pattern suit or sport coat costs?
Thanks also, Justin. I neglected to say that I visited their shop in Tokyo last year. They must be offering a different program at their trunk shows because they insisted on at least one fitting for MTM. I was short on time so couldn't do it then, but I think I'll get around to it on my next trip. I'd love to be able to remember the price I was quoted, though.
