Well, visited a few mtms in the Sydney Area and have narrowed it down to Oscar Hunt or Suit Shop for a versatile charcoal suit. George & King actually offered some great deals and to be honest from my experience I cannot tell the difference from them, and other seemingly more advanced shops.However GK does recruit publicly for stylists and with a short training program apparently 'anyone' can consult and measure their clients, and the one who consulted me is actually a college student doing the final year in fashion....so that's that.
Charcoal full canvass three-piece pricings (Cheapest option available) All made in China.
OH - $1295 Three fittings
SS- $1495 presumably three fittings
GK-$999 two fittings
I've actually somewhat bluntly asked the Suit Shop tailor at the time what really sets them apart from other cheaper options, to which he replied that he has no direct experiences with shops such as Montagio or GK, however in the market today a lot of MTMs simply consider only the length of the cloth, rather than also factoring in the complete posture file of the person - which places them closer to the Bespoke experience. I've also addressed the same questions to GK, and got the confirmation that they do also take in to account of the posture, some sort of a 'molding' was mentioned however I had to hurry for a train so did not stay long.
Anyway just wanted to ask if any of you guys want to pitch in, I'm leaning towards Oscar Hunt at the moment, however on the flip side am also pretty curious about GK and how cheap MTMs like this actually work.
