What would folks say is the best place to get an OTR fully-canvassed suit in the area for under $1,500? Buddy of mine needs a wedding suit but doesn't have enough time for MTM, wants to be able to try things on first (so no online stores like S&M or eHaberdasher) and I'm trying to steer him towards something better than suit supply.
why not suitsupply la spalla or jort? they're around $1000 - $1100 and full canvas.

He should check out Sid Mashburn in Georgetown. I don't know Sid's prices, but there should be something at your friend's price point.

That's a great idea. From the website it looks like their suits mostly run from around $1,300 - $1,600 which I think is right in his range. Plus I get the impression that their fits are a little more forgiving compared to suit supply.

Doesn’t suitsupply offer a fully canvassed line?

There’s a lot more to a suit than just canvassing. Paul Stuart maybe. Zegna outlet in Clarksburg is a possibility.

Nordstrom carries Canali and Hickey Freeman, both fully canvassed. Sid Mashburn’s stuff is Andrea Campagna and quite nice.

Paul Stuart will have some reasonably priced suits with their sale going on.
