    Ercole's and Ned are considered bespoke but you asked for alternatives. LS is only MTM.

    That is true with respect to my LS and other MTM companies as well.

    Suit Supply seems quite popular and I believe is under 1k. Check the suit supply NYC thread.

    Suit Supply is RTW.

    I don't get how some folks don't think Ercoles is "real bespoke". Is it price alone that makes you think this? They do everything a bespoke tailor on Savile Row would do.

    Also check out Brooklyn Tailors in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I think they are MTM and get it done in India if I am not mistaken.

    You invariably recommend LS. You used LS personally? Post a picture of yourself wearing their wonderful product. You did not use them personally? Then refer us to reviews from the people who actually used LS and were happy with what they got. Otherwise, there is a distinct aroma of shilling coming from your "recommendations."

    Yes, I've used them twice. If you don't care for my recommendations then just move on.

    MTM shop in the west 40s IIRC.

    It's really inexpensive, as these things go. Tried them for a couple things and was unimpressed even at that price.

    I had a suit and a couple of trousers made by LS quite a few years ago - all 3 garments ended up in the trash just a few months later.

    It's LS Mens Clothing. I used them once a couple of years ago for a shirt, which turned out to be a comically executed product.

    I had a pair of Dege trousers copied by LS (using Dario). They came out perfectly and were at a decent price (I used LS's cloth). The workmanship was fine, without fancy handwork. That is, of course, of no use to someone who doesn't already have a pair of bespoke trousers that he wants copied. Also, this was many years ago - maybe 5+
