    Hey all,
    Looking for good (full canvassed etc.) suit for formals at school this year.

    Budget: $1500-3000 w/tailoring.

    Really like Brioni/Roman cut but insufficient funds...

    5'6" 188-195 lbs. Thick (not fat but broad) built.

    Any brand suggestions? Good tailors in NYC in this price range?

    I'd rather not go bespoke. no time for 100 questions and 50 fittings but MTM could work.

    Your help is appreciated! thx

    With that budget, you can get some MTM stuff easily... I'm 5'5 very lean but athletic upper body so literally nothing fits me off the rack. I just recently ordered a MTO sportscoat from Epaulet and it was $700 I think... they tailor to whatever measurements you want... so I had them take make it basically a 37XS (plus an extra half inch off) and had them take an inch in on the jacket and had surgeon cuff'd to my measurements... I needed zero extra alterations after receiving and it fits fantastically.

    They're also based out of Manhattan so you can actually check them out and even do the MTO order right there in the shop. Their website has some good fabric options under their special order section, and they are pretty well regarded on these forums.
