Made by Trinity in China. MTM made in England or the U.S doesn't work at that price point, if you want to make a quality garment. Bespoke work is still made locally of course.

The suit pictured in the ad is an actual MTM so you can get a nice English style with this system. For $1500 I am also offering Dormeuil Amadeus and some Barberis cloths.

As wide as you like.

That's a very fair price. Does that $1K price apply to overcoatings as well?

Yes, the MTM can do a chesterfield style quite nicely. Anything more unusual would have to be bespoke.

Nice.

I assume 'chesterfield' would be inclusive of a DB overcoat w/o the velvet collar? Or is only the traditional fly-front SB possible w/ the MTM program?

I don't have a DB coat model for the MTM but I could do something like this nicely, with or without velvet collar:



This is a Bespoke make coat with a Dormeuil wool and Cashmere cloth, it would run at $2750. The MTM would be similar but would have less hand work and a less expensive cloth.

What's the general range for MTM overcoats?

Usually MTM coats are about $1500-$2000

Bespoke are $2500-$3250 (include high end cloths as standard)

Top Maker Bespoke are $3500-$4000 (include higher end cloths as standard)

The MTM coats usually run at $2000 when someone uses a high end cloth in the construction. If you wanted to do this, you could still take a 1/3rd off during the course of the offer.

The Bespoke involves patterns being made and stored and a lot of handwork, its a high end suit made in a local union shop. Generally I do not do a raw try on with this make, although I do fittings starting with a slip on fitting. I use cloths like Dormeuil Amadeus, Loro Piana Tasmanian and H Lesser as standard at this price point.

The Top maker is the best garment my company can make and is comparable to a high end Savile Row bespoke garment. These suits are made locally by bench tailors I work with (they usually work from home). Everything is hand stitched except the long seams. Each suit takes two weeks of skilled labor to produce involving several try ons, I allocate a particular cutter and tailor to each client to create the best result, so for example I would give the linen or silk suit to my Italian tailor. There is access to even more luxurious cloths at the base price of Top Maker.

The term Top Maker is a Savile Row term. If we wanted to make the bespoke piece extra special for say a royal, we would give the job to the "Top Maker", who was the best tailor working for the house.
