    So, last friday I was at the mall in a store called "Palacio de Hierro" and found out they do MTM suits. I was taking a look at the different fabrics they have and I felt two, as quantum physics would describe, simultaneously dead and alive. Haha let me explain, I felt terrible cause they have really good fabrics, some Super 150's, Trofeo 600 by Ermenegildo Zegna and even the 15 mil mil 15; some cashmere, flannels and that stuff. And the reason I felt that way is because they can make your suit with the 15 mil mil 15 fabric for $20,000.00 pesos (that is $1,482 usd). I spent that amout of money in the Giorgio Armani suits I bought and they are not full canvas and don't have the quality of that fabric!

    But the good part of it is that I found where to buy my next suits. The only thing is that the suit is not going to say "Ermenegildo Zegna" but who cares, as long as it fits perfectly.

    The important part is that fortunately I found this forum, and since this is going to be my first experience with MTM suits, what should I must know? Or have to consider? Any insight, recommendation, what should I check in order to confirm that the suit is well constructed? Please feel free to give it to me, I will appreciate it enormously.
