I'm looking to break into the MTM space in San Francisco and see a few options. I seem to have a choice on a few online catalogs where a salesperson measures me and then I can order online (such as Tom James, J. Hilburn, or Indochino) or I can go to a local tailor that does more of the work (I'm thinking Spoon or possibly Andreas Gorges for this). I've also been in contact with VZ Exclusive because I found them in another post from this site (from a member with exactly one post..).
My specific questions are: does anyone have experience with VZ Exclusive? I can't find anything about them online that's not from their site or blog. Please let me know if you've had experience with them and if it's good/bad.
My second question is: should I just skip these catalogs like J. Hilburn and Tom James and go to Spoon or Andreas Gorges? My inclination is to try Spoon first, but J. Hilburn or Tom James seem intriguing with a lower entry price point. I've seen a lot of bad reviews about Indochino so I'll probably avoid it. Anyone prefer Andreas Gorges?
