    Hey guys-
    So, I asked you all earlier what you would suggest with regards to suits, Brioni MTM or Fioravanti? Well, I bought one Brioni MTM and I am not pleased. But, just yesterday, I was told that some tailors will be coming to the office on Monday. I live in NY and work in an investment bank. I was wondering, who will these tailors be? Do other offices have tailors come in and if so, which tailors come in? Specifically in New York. How have you guys enjoyed these in house tailors? Basically, I am very confused and was looking for some guidance on this issue.

    it could be Tom James?

    What was wrong with the Brioni MTM?

    You live in one of the world's great clothing cities. Why are you thinking of the equivalent of the Gimbel's Shop at Home Upholstery Service rather than visiting one of leading stores or tailors?

    Generally, the tailors who come to the office are second rate. E.g., Tom James.

    Yes, what was wrong with the Brioni?
    btw, that would have been quick service that you have your Brioni already after only 4 weeks or so...

    Comparing Brioni and Fioravanti, to me, is like comparing chalk with cheese. One uses great fabric, but has the suit measured in NY york, usually by a sales person, and then loses control of it as it works its way through the in-house tailoring system in Italy. Fioravnti. sells, cuts and fits just about all of his suits with the help of his brother, Tony and then has the suit made in-house. So quality control is high. The only qualifying decision to me is whether you use Fioravanti or another tailor in NY based on house styles and personalities.

    I think you'll find that most tailors who only travel to offices to sell and fit are only sale people with limited measuring and fitting skills. Their suits will be custom made in a factory.
