    Yes. The amount of options = 0. As far as I know in Canada there is absolutely nothing remotely close to Saville Row or the top Milanese tailors. Custom yes (meaning a individually tailored suit, but at a significantly lesser quality). Bespoke no.

    If I am wrong, please correct me, I would love to hear about it. And I don't particularly care where in Canada because I am in Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, etc. very regularly.


    Francesco Sr. in Toronto is a Milanese bespoke tailor. He's getting on in years
    but makes everything entirely by hand. Prices are quite high but in keeping
    with Savile Row or Milan bespoke.

    Tom Ford dinner suits at Harrolds in Melbourne, Australia are $5000.

    That bloody $5000 dinner coat has been waving at me ever since I first laid my eyes on it. Bloody jacket. BTW, Tom Ford tailors are dropping by Harrolds, Melb this weekend for MTM.

    Just to make sure: is this C21 pricing formula?

    My fave feature of TF's suits are the adjustable pants - ala rented tuxedo style. Honestly - for a guy like me that demands the perfect fit in the waist this is one of the greatest features. So, anyone know of another great designer who does the same thing but at a reasonable price? $3500 is too rich for this waist sensitive fashion boi. Thanks
    If you mean side tab adjusters, my understanding - though I've never tried myself - is that a competent tailor can add them to any trousers after the fact. Note that if you do, you'll want to have the belt loops removed. Also, you'll have to come up with the material for them to match the pants. If the pants are new and unhemmed, you might get enough out of the extra length to make it work.

    Paying Tom Ford prices just to have side tabs? Are you crazy? If I remember correctly side tabs and no belt loops were standard on old school style British suit pants (gentlemen wear braces). Any competent tailor can make pants like those, I had them on Alan Flusser pants back in the day.

    Unless your job gives you latitude to wear stuff like that, the Ron Burgundy look isn't going to fly with the powers that be in a conservative business environment.

    TF is overpriced if you are capable to communicate to a tailor of their style, and they are willing to cut the item
