1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Okay, I've decided to go the MTM route for a new suit (or two) once I get to NYC. I have a suit that will get me through the first semester so I'm in no rush. Now, I would appreciate your help with choosing a tailor. From what I can tell, the most popular custom suit tailors mentioned on this site are Jantzen, Chan, and LS Men's Clothing. Their respective websites quote suit prices that are within my price range (under $1000 for a suit that will last). However, I have a few questions that I would appreciate your help with.

    1. What are some of the pros/cons of each tailor?

    2. If I go with Jantzen or Chan, what do I need to know about ordering a suit while they are on tour to NYC; e.g. how long does it take before I get the suit, is it worth the wait?

    3. Could you suggest ways to expedite or otherwise improve the MTM experience?

    4. What are some other high-quality tailors in NYC that I should look into that could offer a suit within my price range?

    Thanks in advance! And forgive me if the questions have been answered in another thread. What I found were threads in esoteric language beyond my understanding. Please link me if you know of threads (in the vernacular) that could help me.
