I visited GY when he was in NY and just didn't like the styling - a very firm, padded shoulder. Honestly it looked like a lot of NY drycleaner "bespoke"

But hey, that's their business model - they probably have too much business to handle, hence that's their way of 'choosing their clients'.
I can't figure out their effective CMT cost but they can. They pay a cloth bill and know what trimmings cost.
I think someone really made such a big deal about his cloth that they just find it easier to say no to everyone.
I suppose we could promise them X orders if they'll do CMT but business appears to be brisk as it is so I'm not sure they'd want to bother.
