    I've always worn OTR clothing, but recently decided to give MTM suits a try after reading about them. I need a suit for job interviews and business. Since fit is the main reason I am looking at MTM, I would prefer to have an experienced tailor take my measurements, rather than an inexperienced friend. I live in a small southern city, but by chance I have an opportunity to see either a traveling tailor for Dillards, My Tailor or Proper Suits. I should mention that I am on the large side, with a bit of a beer belly.

    I've seen a lot of reviews for My Tailor, a few for Proper Suit, but none for Dillards. Do any of you have experience with these companies so that you could say how they compare? I am most interested in fit, rather than fabric selection or customization options.

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    I've seen one of theeir sportcoats at a local SF Meet-up.
    It looked great.

    Thanks, Coburn. It looks like My Tailor has Nick Chotrani coming to town in a few weeks. I'll make an appointment with him and post a review of my experience.
