How much should a black bespoke suit cost?
I thought black would be a good color, because I attend many venues (concerts, parties, concerts) where a black suit would either be perfectly acceptable as a tux substitute, or just plain perfect. I'm considering bespoke because I want a well-made, perfectly fitting suit (I'm skinny with a drop 7-8).
How much should it cost from a reputable tailor, and how long should it take to make it? I'll probably use Nick Lopez in Houston, if anyone is familiar with him.
Anything else I should know before venturing into bespoken territory?
Nick Lopez has been recommended on this forum as being a high quality tailor.
Before you drop a pile of cash at his place, go along Westheimer and see Hank at Orlin in the strip mall on the left near Hilcroft/Voss. You will find his prices to be around half what NL charges.
Hank also told me of a customer who had a ton of stuff done by NL and brings them to Hank one by one to be fixed as he was dissatisfied with how they came out. Make of that what you will.
