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?

This is not a simple, quick answer question. First of all think about charcoal, no black - it is better looking and much more versatile. As far as cost, there are many variables, starting with the cloth you want. If you know what style and features you want, go for it, but otherwise do some research here (the search function is your friend).

If you don't know anything about suits, do a search here and read up. It will help if you have an idea of what you want going in. There are lots of good info on style choices, colors, fabrics as well as various tailors and their price points in addition to the overall bespoke process. If your time is limited, bespoke might not work as it can take a while and you should expect 2-3 fittings throughout the process.

The same as a bespoke suit in any other colour.

Cool boots I have the same but in a diffrent shape from Ralph Lauren. I use them with little more casual clothes. Manchester pants, some cashmere sweater with a shirt under, any jacket with a scarf and gloves.

 

Note: I only use these when its snowing haha :P

Only 12 oz, but the APC New Standard is a forum favorite.

I've been a lurker for awhile, so some knowledge has been absorbed, but you bring up excellent points.  Thank you, cb, for taking the time to help.  I appreciate it, and clearly should do some archive searches to sharpen my knowledge even further.

you have a lot of research to do. their website is under construction and provides very little info. another SFer already had a 2 piece made there for $1,700. http://www.styleforum.net/t/49708/suit-commission-from-nick-lopez-tailoring

it's fully hand canvassed and the quality looks very good so the price seems appropriate.

This was available from Barneys this season.
Can anyone ID this Lanvin coat? I've been looking through, but I'm having trouble finding it-- I want to see some more pictures.
Also, anyone know about its quality, fit, and maker?

Thanks

There are some good links in the FAQ thread which, for some reason, is no longer pinned at the top of the Men's Clothing forum:

can anyone answer this for me? .... any thoughts on covert fabric for a sportcoat? I'm not too familiar with it but came across it recently and am considering that it would make a nice looking, but durable and well-wearing SC. Thoughts?
