    I've read previous threads on how it's not best to order from My.suit online because it's pretty inaccurate when measuring yourself and ordering online. This is the main reason why I refuse to order from indochino, moderntailor, etc.

    I was wondering if anyone has any experience getting measurements and ordering with a sales associate in-store? Starting at $495 for a MTM suit seems like a pretty good deal.

    Also, what is the quality of the fabric like, compared to Brooks Brothers low end suits?

    Thanks!

    Unless OTR doesn't fit you, I think it would be better to go with OTR than cheap MTM.

    Well, I figured if I got an OTR suit, I would get it tailored anyways and it would cost around the same amount. But since it'll fit me slightly better, maybe it'll be worth it to get it MTM??
    Slight dilemma here.

    I'm guessing that for the same price you would be getting better fabric from OTR than MTM. Plus, there's also the fact that the design of an OTR suit is already there for you while you have to figure everything out yourself with MTM.
