Should I go Brinoi or MTM/Bespoke?

I was up at the Brioni outlet at Woodbury Commons and found a great suit that fit really well (at least the jacket did - didn't try the pants). The jacket had a nice contour and was very lightweight with Super 160 fabric. Size was 38R. The suit retailed for $5,000 and was being offered at $2,800.

At this price point, I was thinking that I should go for a good quality made to measure. What are some good places to go in NYC that can offer a flattering style? I am on the tall, slim side and want something that is appropriate for work, but still really sharp. Can I get a good quality bespoke in the $2K-3K range or should I just focus on MTM? Are there any OTR brands I should check out that would be cheaper, but still fully canvassed?

Thanks!

Please search the forums for the numerous threads that will answer this query for the umpteenth time. If you have some intelligent, specific questions afterward, ask away.

You are just lazy and indulged. Put some effort in. Maybe you have dumb questions later, maybe you have well thought out questions later. Right now, can you really not comprehend my(and many others')issue with your OP?
Do you really think many of those answers are not contained within the jillions of posts on SF or elsewhere?
Is it hard to figure out that they probably are? I don't see that as a big leap but in this day and age, perhaps.

Why do you want Brioni? Why do you want made to measure? What are you really looking for?
