Great article. Once you go bespoke, you can't go back. I prefer to support a local bespoke tailor as well (Trend custom), though my suits are more in the $2K range as he has a staff of junior tailors and seamstresses for production. Psychologically at the $4K+ mark you'd expect superlative amounts of handiwork and construction. This is where I have a hard time justifying the cost, since this is rarely the case.
