Many tailors can handle this type of turnaround if you use an in-stock cloth or CMT. If the tailor has to order cloth, you're going to likely run into issues.

Isn’t there supposedly a years waiting list for liverano
Saw on the website that Liverano now has a tailoring school.
Maybe their production team has also grown bigger and now turnaround can be faster?

In my case when i ordered a sports jacket with Ascot Chang was, selecting the fabric 2-3months ahead by emailing them and telling them about my schedule.
It also helped that they already have my shirt pattern and i asked the fitting garment to be based on my shirt measurements and have them make the appropriate adjustment for a jacket.
1st fitting the afternoon i arrived in HK and another fitting the day i was leaving.

Jacket shipped over later and by far it was the best fitting jacket i have, 2 more being mtm from another tailor.

Has anyone shipped over one of their existing jacket and then ask to copy the measurements at least?
Before going over, i would think this is a good option also.

My first commission with B&Tailor was measurements + 2 fittings in a 2 week period. I have no doubt this couldn't have worked without CMT. My 2a + 2b was me shipping them lengths I bought (they get dinged with customs, I pay their damage), and having one fitting.

For my first commission from Paone I sent him the cloth and one of my Guida jackets to take the measurements from. When I arrived i few weeks later the basted fitting (actually of two jackets) was prepared, and five days later I had the forward fitting. A month or so later I received both jackets by mail :) So yes, that approach is definitely possible.
