    Despos does not really do a drape cut. However, Despos is my first foray into bespoke tailoring, and it has far exceeded my expectations so far. He is great to work with, cannot say better things.

    But if you want an A&S cut, then it probably is not what you are looking for, but I do not think you can do better, honestly.

    From the comments over the years in SF he is a superb tailor and a pleasure to
    deal with. I am not in the market for bespoke, but if I were, I would reluctant to choose him because his house style is not to my taste.

    My dream suit from the costume designer Milena Canonero. She did the suits for the movie " TUCKER " The man and his dream. A true story. Anyway, a little more cuff showing, and an unbuttoned bottom button, and this suit is perfect. Especially for me. Too bad she does not make suits for individual people. Wish she did, as all the suits in this movie were sublime! The best!

    The alterations tailor that Tavi5 has gone to that has done so well for him might be a Bespoke tailor. If so, that is where I would start, instead of crisscrossing the world trying to find the best tailor.

    As far as fads go custom can be made that looks better than a stab in the dark rtw.

    Greger: You are spot on. I have a tailor here in San Diego that is a hidden gem! I don't even have to speak when I go in. He knows what I like! ( the late 30's ) look updated, he knows my body, and how to make sure the fabric drapes, or hangs so well for my Physique, which is very muscular. So he knows not too much shoulder padding. Most importantly, light weight Linens, wool Crepes ( my fave ) lightweight tropical wools, as I can afford to choose the best. I know some cannot do that. But there are plenty of thrift shops out here, where you can find the best italian and American suits, just about new. If you are lucky to find your size? Or even close. A good tailor, can make you turn heads in your suit! I've always said, I would rather have 10 beautifully tailored suits, of exquisite fabric and cut, than 50 cheap ill fitting suits!

    FYI-Milena Canonero made some pieces for retail in the late 80's. It was a small offering--suits and topcoats from Norman Hilton, shirts by Ike Behar. They were gorgeous/

    Wow Bespoke: I have two beautiful suits from Vestimenta, which I believe was Norman Hilton in Europe? Also made Giorgio Armani's high end black label (Classico) too.
