this place advertised in the Wall street Journal. I called them and they sounded pretty reasonable... custom suits with as many fittings as needed starting at $595 NY Tailors link

I'll let you know how it works out, as I'm now having a suit made by them. They (Kris Ramani et al) take fairly extensive measurements and photos and then the suit is made in a Canadian factory. I had a fitting with the basted suit and asked for some adjustments, but I was impressed with the level of handwork. I opted for a gray nailhead in a nice Dormeuil 9 oz fabric, two button, pick stitching but nothing too exotic. Should be ready in a week or so.

Lint Brush, How is their location?  Lots of spools of fabric?  Did they do any upselling?  And most important, how much was the suit?

The location is fine--you're not going to think you wandered into Paul Stuart, but for Broadway at Fulton it's just fine--spacious and well lit. Nice fabric sample selection--the aforementioned Dormeuil, lots of Holland & Sherry, Loro Piana, Vito Barberis. I didn't ask about Lesser, but perhaps they could get it. Not sure what you meant by "upselling"--I assume that's an effort to push you to a higher price point. Actually, he was happy to make me a less expensive suit (with less expensive fabric, of course). There was no pressure--he seemed confident in the quality of his product. I'm paying $850, which I imagine is close to WWChan pricing--but I liked the idea of the tailor being close to my office. I think the Canadian factory is the one mentioned by Manton when he described the categories of NYC made to measure in an earlier post.
