Hi, My dinner suit quest continues. My frustration mounts. Time is running out. I have been all over the DC metro area looking for an (ideally discounted) single-breasted, one-button peak-lapel dinner suit. Other than a $1495 Canali at Nordstrom's and the Brioni jacket-sans-slacks on sale at Neiman for $1300 I have had little luck. At a $1500 price point, I am thinking of going MTM - any recommendations on places to go in the DC area? My constraints are: * I'd like to spend ~$1500 tops for canvassed jacket * I need fairly quick turnaround (wedding is Sep 5) Therefore I was thinking of Brooks MTM or Custom Shop. Both said that they could meet my specs and - likely - my timeline. Neither of them, I would guess, are marvellous in terms of quality, but they may not be all that bad. Of course, the other option would be to just rent for the Sep 5 wedding and wait for Chan to come to DC in November... Anyhow, thought I'd put it up for your advice. Any guidance is appreciated.
