Very good point. Sometimes, you will get lucky and you will achieve perfection, or close to it. Other times, there will be something that you're not quite happy about - the feel of the trouser waistband, or the way the shirt collar sits.If there’s one thing I’ve learned about buying MTM and custom clothes from various makers over the past 8-10 years, it’s that chasing “perfection” can be the most frustrating and unsatisfying goal imaginable.
The big advantage of MTM/custom is that you can order whatever you want (within reason). The big disadvantage is that you can't try it on beforehand!
RTW is the other way around - you can see it, feel it, try it on before buying to make sure that you're happy with it (or at least, prepared to accept imperfections), but you can only get what's on the rack.
