    Totally agree!

    What OTR brands would you think provide something decent. Sacoor Brothers seems to have decent material and half lined construction. I usually run into the sleeves and jacket being to long on a 38 regular....

    I've had a little experience with Sacoor. I still have a couple jackets from them in my closet in fact. They are probably similar to Suit Supply, which is not bad. For the price range you seem to be in it might be the best option. Just do NOT get it altered by their in house tailors. I've use the tailor on the bottom floor of the Dubai mall, near the grocery store. I can't remember the name, but you can't miss them.

    That's true. I would also save up the money and go to a reputable tailor if budget is the issue. Most expensive suit is the suit that you don't wear.

    Thanks for the tip.

    On a separate note, the reason why I was asking regarding what things to tell the tailor to do or not do was because he has another 2 suit fabric lengths that I need to go for a fitting for next week....

    After the results of this thread I'm hoping I didn't just throw away a lot of money.

    If he hasn't started cutting yet, I would go and get my stuff back, in a tactful way of course.
