Loro Piana Bespoke?

Last weekend I was wandering around the Union Square shopping district
of San Francisco seeing if I could find a sport coat in the post- Christmas sales.
Among the shops I visited was the Loro Piana shop. I enquired if they had any sport
coats. No men's tailored clothing was displayed in their windows. They did
have a very limited selection in some great fabrics, but the cuts were not
to my taste. Also, the prices are very high (for me). At this point, I was told
about their bespoke program, about which I was dimly aware. Basically, they
offer full bespoke done by their in-house tailors in New York. Not Martin Greenfield,
or the like, their own tailors. According to the salesman, who was very friendly
and low key, one actually saves money relative to other bespoke tailors, because
Loro Piana fabrics are available at very low cost. Since I am not in the market for full
bespoke, I thought that I'd pass this along.
