Nah, the local tailor in our area learned suitmaking when he moved to Canada and now runs his own small shop. I've had a few items made by him and all have been top notch stuff. 80% hand done(sleeve link, canvas padding, collar, pockets etc). He use to do the buttons by hand but he bought a machine which, after I watched him do one, I can't blame anyone for not wanting to do that.
The first suit I had made was from another tailor here in town who was/is highly thought of yet it was screwed it up beyond words. It was to be bespoke but it was shipped to Montreal(I bought the fabric from Ed on the forum here) for completion. I called asking when I was to come in for a fitting, he put me off a few times and then it was finished without my ever trying it on. LC had me bring it to the guy who is making this one and he saved it as best as could be done. I have it and it "fits" but I don't wear it because it's not a good fit. The fabric was an amazing grey wool cashmere blend with a subtle light burnt orange windowpane, makes me want to cry or rage thinking about it.
It's a stunning deal if I have my own fabric, around $600 for a coat and $1K for a suit. This stuff is a light grey cashmere herringbone made for Drapers that I got when we went to LA last month which I think I'm into for about $250 for three yards. With luck there should be enough left over to attempt at making a tie or failing at it
