    $549 for a "$1000 bespoke" (MTM) suit. Anyone have any experience with these guys?

    Bump because I saw that Gilt Chicago is offering this until Sunday, I believe.

    I got a suit from them last summer (full-canvased, Scabal super 130's navy pinstripe) and have been very pleased with the results, especially for the price they offered it for. I think they have the option of sourcing it to master tailors here in the States or overseas for a lower price, which is a cool option to have if you're interested in lower price vs. American-made. I'm surprised they aren't mentioned here more, given that their access to fabrics like Scabal, Holland & Sherry, Harris Tweed, etc. is pretty much the same as anybody else's and their tailors seem to know what they're doing.

    I'm gonna grab their bespoke package for $700 tomorrow when payday comes.

    SS MTM is more expensive than the Gilt deal. Also considering pulling the trigger on this -- any chance we could get some pics burningbright?

    i'm also considering getting this gilt deal for a tuxedo (upcoming wedding). previously i had just planned on getting something off the rack from a store (brooks brothers, etc). i'm new to this forum and found this thread via google -- any downside to getting the gilt deal? seems like it will be cheaper than something similar from a store, and better fit? any reason not to pull the trigger?

    thanks!

    Deal is back again in NYC and Chicago on Gilt. I had my wedding suit made at Sebastien Grey and it was overall an awesome (and fun) experience. I learned a lot, and the team is super knowledgeable. Definitely the best suit I've ever owned.
