MTM Topcoat: MyTailor.com or Mr. Ned?

I want to have a topcoat made using fabric I have already purchased and based on photographs of a coat from another designer.

With my budget, I think I have to chose between Mr Ned and MyTailor.

MyTailor already has most of my measurements from the shirts they've made for me, and I think they would do an OK job making the coat -- the problem is, I assume you don't get fittings with them since the work is done overseas?

Mr Ned is a few hundred dollars more, and when I once visited them, they sort of seemed to want to do their own thing when it comes to style/design, but at least with them I would get one fitting.

Any suggestions on who I should use? I will also be going to Miami in a few days if someone can recommend someone good down there.

Thank you.

I'd definitely would spend a few hundred more to get a proper personal fitting. Another obvious advantage would be if there is a problem with the final product you can have it sent back to Mr. Ned easily.

What sort of style overcoat are you looking for?
did you also figure the shipping cost of sending your fabric to mytailor

i wouldn't have to pay to ship the fabric if I wait until early Dec, the next time MyTailor is in town, but otherwise it would cost $25-$30.

the style would be 3-button (hidden button) single-breasted, 3/4 length
