MTM. Initial thoughts are positive as I have liked the experience and like working with Paul Winston. But I don't have the suit, and unless it fits well, nothing else is particularly important. I went in looking to replace the J. Press sportcoats my wife made me get rid of, and Winston Tailors seemed like a good place to start. It is NOT a substitute for high end bespoke as you are not going to find the same level of needlework or tailoring skill, at least not in the MTM product (and he wouldn't even consider selling me the bespoke). I was shopping for something more or less like what they do by default, so it seemed like a good match and so far, we seem on track. I had a fitting on the suit back from the factory. They marked it up and the intent is for it to be ready next time I see them, but who knows.
