    Hello Styleforum, long time troller but have never posted. Just had a few questions.

    I'm moving to Japan in two weeks and I'll be living in the Tokyo/Yokohama area. Any recommendations for a MTM or bespoke tailor? Preferably in the $1500 range or less. I've found a few older threads dating back from 2008-2010 that were helpful but being that its 2016 it would be greatly appreciated!

    Also I'm a fairly easy fit OTR (The Suit Company in S for comparison, 36S or 34S in Zegna most of the time), so that won't be an issue. My second question would be recommendations on places to shop for those who have lived or is living in Japan at the moment. I know that Paul Stuart, J Press are owned by Japanese parent companies. Thanks!

    There are plenty of bespoke tailors offering MTM within your budget.
    No personal experience, but my shoemaker seems to like the first link (Pecora Ginza) a lot.

    Maybe Ring Jacket, too?
