    I have a question for ppl here who have gone the bespoke way. As I look at the first suits I ordered from different tailors, I realize to myself that the first suit always has inherent issues(i.e problems) even though I get 3-4 fittings. Only on the third suit is when I truly believe the fit/style issues have all been worked out. Is this true for everyone here? Did anyone get their first bespoke suit perfect?

    No, but it was (and still is) perfectly wearable. In fact, my first three suits all went back for increasingly minor alterations that made them quite good. The fourth suit is underway. I'll see how it turns out.

    Oh, I don't mean not wearable.. quite the opposite. They are perfectly wearable and probably perfect to the untrained eye. Just the nitpicking stuff I am talking about... the shape of the armhole, height of the breast pocket... nip of the waist... All measurements are probably half a centimeter in difference.
