I graduate from business school very soon and start a position at a consulting firm in late summer.
I am looking to buy a bunch of suits, shirts, and pants (trousers). I have previously purchased two bespoke suits: one from Alton Lane in New York and one while I was traveling with buddies in Vietnam.
The Alton Lane suit cost over $1,000 (two-piece) and the one in Vietnam cost $150 (and it was a three-piece). I am not a suit junky so I do not know which one is of higher quality. Given that the suit made by Alton Lane took a few months to come in, I think they're outsourcing their tailoring to a country such as Vietnam, Hong Kong, China, etc.
My question is this: should I just attend a few of the hotel visits being made by the likes of WWChan, Nita, etc.? If so, which of those types of tailors are best and which should I visit/purchase from? Nita seems like it's priced lower than WWChan but not sure if that means it's poorer quality. I don't know of any of the other tailors that visit the US.
Or, should I travel to Asia and find a good tailor there and buy a bunch of bespoke suits directly from him/her? This might save some money and could yield better results, too. I have a ton of frequent flyer miles and hotel points so the cost of my trip to Asia is almost nothing.
