A couple of years ago it took about 6 weeks from order to receipt on the US trips, now it seems to be closer to 2-3 months. I blame this forum for the extended lead time. Vintage, that sounds right. I always get an email telling me the suit will arrive in approximately one week, and it sometimes arrives much sooner than a week from that notification. Panzeraxe--they do a very good job from bare measurements. There are some things, like button stance, gorge height, or amount of waist suppression, that may come out slightly different from your preference, but if you give them very precise instructions, and let them examine a favorite suit at the time of first fitting, this is less likely to happen. They nailed the measurements for me on the first suit, but put the button stance and gorge height slightly lower than I like--when I say slightly lower we are talking about an inch or so. The suit looks fine to everyone I've asked, but I adjusted future orders.
