In my opinion, M-T-M means that someone takes measurements. Then they make a sample and send it for approval. If necessary, they make any corrections to the sample shirt and the cutting instructions and then proceed with the remainder of your order. In our case, we take as many measurements as we can get (best if we do them, not quite as good if they are supplied to us). From these measurements, we cut the R-T-W shirt. No sample is involved, so it does not, IMHO, qualify as M-T-M. However, because we use the client's measurements, the yoke, sleeves, neck, waist, chest, and hips fit as properly as they can without going through the actual fitting process. The actual fabric, cutting, trimming, and making of the shirt is exactly the same as for our bespoke shirts. Hence, I put our method neither between, above, nor below anyone else's process. It is a bit unique, but I would not have the temerity to call it M-T-M. I hope reading this leaves you less confused than before. If not, hopefully the quality of my shirts exceeds that of my explanation.
