I haven't had anything made at DeLouice, but I had him do alterations to a bunch of garments (as did my then-gf) and we were both very unimpressed with the work.

^I'm surprised to hear that; I've been pleased with him (excepting one unfortunate shirt sleeve-shortening experience). It seems you and I have had mirror opposite experiences with DeLouice and Nicholas Joseph.

I'm brand new, and searching mightily through the millions of threads here. I'm in the suburbs (Northwest), and was wondering if there was a name or two for good alterations. I'm not in the market to buy a complete suit, but I have shirts, jackets, sport coats, and slacks I would like to get "fitted" for me.

I've always had the "gentleman" inside me, but I'm only now beginning to dress as one outwardly. Quite an undertaking.

Does my alterations. Great guy. Not sure he still does full bespoke...

I had a M2M suit made by DeLouice (Adrian Park). He does a good job of fitting, I needed zero adjustments when the suit arrived. I got the most entry level $500 suit, judging by the fabric swatch I was worried that the material would be too light and thin, but as a finished garment it feels great. By far the most comfortable, best fitting and looking suit I've ever owned (admittedly I've owned some pretty poor suits, my previous best being a Bachrach suit). First one I got was Navy, saving up for Charcoal and Medium grey to round out my rotation.

Adrian did some alterations for me as well, original hem on jeans ($25), tack vents/side alterations on sport coats ($70), shorten should width ($80). I'm pleased with the quality of work. He will give you his opinion, but he will do what you ask.

Maybe it's just me, but do there seem to be an inordinate amount of people who recommend Despos, followed with the caveat "...I've never used him though"?

That's because he's this forum's outlet of incredibly detailed technical information. Though few of us can afford him, he unquestionably knows his shit. Another tailor on this forum dissects high end garments and evidently Despos gets his approval as well.

Despos is pretty good. But I've never used him for sportcoats. Suits, yes; Overcoats, yes; shirts, yes; trousers, yes - but never sportcoats. Granted, I refuse to own a sportscoat.

But, when it comes to bespoke, you always want to find the tailor that works best for you. Do that and you'll be pretty happy.

Many of my relatives are senior members here.

Didn't know that, guess we never discussed sportcoats.

Hi all - I am reviving a bit of an old thread, as some of the references listed previously may not be around (or able to be found by my searching)

 

I am getting married September of 2014 and looking for either a MTM or Bespoke tux (have not gotten enough information to make an appropriate judgment on that yet).  I have PM'd Chris and not received a response, I have contacted Nicholas Joseph and have an appointment with them later this month, and I also plan on stopping by Ralph Lauren while I am in the City.

 

At this point I am leaning towards a midnight blue, shawl collar, single button set up.

 

Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated - I have searched many iterations of "tuxedo chicago/MTM tuxedo Chicago/ Chicago Tailors" and this seems to be the best thread, even if it is a couple years old.


Thanks in advance,


Casey

I also pmed chris and received no response. I believe steed is making a stop in chicago this summer. May want to check their itinerary.

I'm not sure how active Chris is on the forum these days, so I wouldn't take the lack of response as a slight. I'd suggest calling his shop.
