    I'm looking into getting a new grey suit, subtle pattern to the fabric and possibly 3 piece, and was shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. I would be able to get a MTM from HSM for $699. I'm wondering if this is a good deal or for the money should I look else where. I have a figure that not many suits fit well. Is there a better MTM for the price that would be feasible in Dallas?

    This is the best time to do MTM. Its almost 33% off for really good MTM. If you want the best go for Hickey Freeman. Its fully canvassed where HSM is 1/2 canvassed.

    I am ordering 3 Hickey Freeman suits and 1 HSM Sportcoat

    I know they talked about having three pieces available for customization on the original price, between the pick stitching, ticket pocket, surgeon cuff, lining etc.. Do you know what you are choosing for yours?

    If you have a Nord card starts this Wednesday if not then it starts on the 19th. First come first serve. If you go towards the end of the sale fabric running out is highly likely as well as it could take a lot longer than 6 weeks. Sale officially ends on August 4th.

    Where do you live?

    Wednesday if you are a card holder, you should have gotten a special code to get online access to merchandise. Non card holders get to shop on the 19th. If you are interested PM me.

    Sorry for my ignorance, are you talking about "MTM" options that are different than the suits shown on the website under the anniversary sale (which all appear to be off the rack to me, but perhaps I'm mixing up my terminology here).
