I visited my tailor one day and was surprised to find him working on a Jos Bank suit with sleeves basted and separate buttons, plus a fairly nice Italian Super 110s fabric. It was marked as their super duper imperial presidential generalissimo line. Construction appeared to be fused, but I would rate the quality at roughly equivalent to Brooks, Abboud, or RL non-PL. Of course that's their best stuff. One other point of some interest: for guys with big shoulders and small waists, JosBank does some suit separates. Since fit trumps construction every time, it could certainly be argued that this is a legitimate solution fot buyers who can't afford MTM.
