Because of these fora (Style and Andy), I have an appointment with Mr. Chu a week from Saturday. I have never had anything except RTW before, so I'm a real greenhorn about MTM/bespoke. What prompted me in this direction is the following: I am very deep-chested, I stand very erect, and the lapels on just about every RTW garment I've tried in recent years (suit or sport coat) pop away from my chest. This seems to be irrespective of the quality of the garment. Otherwise, I am very vague about what I want in a suit beyond ordinary stuff--SB, 2-piece, notch lapels, flap pockets, NO ticket pocket, belt loops, cuffs. I am even open on the matter of 2- or 3-button, but will probably go with 3-button as more contemporary. I would very much appreciate it if some knowledgeable forum regulars could give me any tips or counsel about what kind of questions to ask or additional things to specify. I gather that their house style is quite "British" (nipped waist, etc.), which should be flattering enough on me. I am more concerned about good fit than stylistic particulars.
