Is that the case? Can you inform us of the actual process in detail? For example, is there an actual fitting where the pieces of the suit are basted together and then adjusted? Again, I'm a fan of James & Co., but have been leary of their custom work, especially as it's no longer NYC based.
i'm just starting the process now, and will give a full report. but, i'm not doing their full custom. in fact, their OTR fits me quite well (which in itself is very strange). but since they appear to have things made in a sort of one-off fashion, they are letting me choose the fabric/lining/etc and add a bit of length to the body but not sleeves etc, and at the "usual cost" of their OTR suits. since they don't seem to ever have more than 1 of any suit, almost everything that one would buy there is somwhere between OTR and MTM, unless you go the full custom (which i think i heard someone say was a more involved process now than in the past). as i said, full report in the future.
