Just wait, Noodles. You don't need to own everything right this minute. You were perfectly happy with 2 suits sitting in your closet for 3 months, so what's another year wait for some perfect bespoke suits?

I think Formosa's MTO pricing is pretty solid...

 

Orazio Luciano MTM for an SC (which is also entirely handmade) starts at like $2900...

MTM is not MTO, and Orazio is not exactly the cheapest tailor either. Would you seriously get a MTO Formosa over 1.2 MTM Steed suits?

I heard this guy is good. A solid alternative to Field Tailors.

The 4th one in the 1st batch. None in 2nd batch. I appreciate it.

Steed MTM is half canvassed, only one fitting. Formosa you can get MTM for same price as MTO if you go to the store in person.

So it's MTM vs MTM, and half canvassed vs full with more handwork. Also not sure where the 2500 is coming from, all of mine have been around $1800 - 2000 (SF discount)

And what happened to stitches sleeves?

Stichie's been wearing some bad@ss DB suits lately.

Panta specializes in DBs

I believe the 1800-2000 is for OTR/GMTO - but I would refer to @gdl203 for accurate information

For MTM those prices are reasonable, but Noodles is getting MTO, as I don't think he'll be going to the store, so it's irrelevant for him. 

 

The 2500 for an individual MTO comes from the 2090 starting price, with 300-400 for the fabric, from Noodles quote. Stiches sleeves had working buttons, but the sleeves were too long, which means the sleeves were shortened, leaving the buttonholes to be right on the edge.

 

Btw, Steed semi-bespoke is fully canvassed.

Why not? It's a 4.5 hour bus trip from DC..
