I apologize if this has been discussed but I ran a cursory search that did not meet precisely what I was looking for. Never the less, I was wondering if someone might be able to provide the typical process and timeline for a bespoke suit; commission to delivery, from A&S or Poole. I'm leaning towards those makers primarily due to the fact that both will be in my city in the coming months which allows me of course to see the product and fabrics in the flesh. If there are any other worthwhile Savile Row tailors who visit Boston, please do tell by the way. The greatest problem as I see it is that my suits will of course be made in London. While I do travel approximately quarterly between the two cities, is it conceivable that I could commission the suit and be initially fitted in Boston, and then follow up with secondary fittings and delivery all on a single 10-14 day trip to London or would other trips be necessary? I have no problem making multiple trips, but it would be nice to get an idea what the process entails before I dive head first into this.
