First, don't get too caught up in fabric super ratings. It is just a number that represents the fineness of the wool fibers. There is crap 120s and great 120s...Indochino doesn't weave their own fabric. What they offer under their label are fabrics they have chosen from whatever mill they use. It's best to see fabrics in person to make a decision and companies in the business of MTM will usually send swatches.
Is there any reason you need MTM? Have you tried many RTW options?
Thanks for the reply! I will try and touch on all your comments.
I haven't heard anything regarding Kent Wang, can you elaborate?
What price point should I be looking at for a good quality bespoke?
I understand that there are bad 120s and good 120s, I will probably be just as useless seeing fabrics in person. The only thing I really know is that I want a 2v2 weave worsted wool, medium weight.
I am an ex-varsity athlete and I am an amateur bodybuilder so OTR never fits properly. Even the Indochino suits don't fit perfectly after 4 suits and multiple adjustments. Because of this, I am more inclined to get bespoke so I know it is perfect. I liked Indochino a few years ago when the USD/CAD made the price reasonable, however I am now paying a 40% premium for nothing.
In the end, if a bespoke is marginally better than a quality MTM I may be more inclined to go with a quality MTM. Can you comment on the barberis super 110s suit for $795 CAD ($560 USD)?
Thanks again for your reply, it is greatly appreciated.
