FYI- Cheap Custom Suits in NY

www.mysuitny.com - not much on the site, but that's it.. it was at 33rd and Broadway, IIRC.

Passed by this place last weekend, and took a look inside today. They'll do full custom-made suits for $495 in whatever style you like (!!). They had a pretty decent selection of fabrics, and, as it turns out, are Zegna's fabric supplier. You get a custom-made, Zegna-fabric suit for $495, or a little bit more for the uber-premium fabrics.

I just bought a Calvin Klein suit from Macy's for $350 and haven't had it tailored yet, but I think I'll be taking it back and getting a custom-made job. Apparently it takes them 14 days.. will post an update if I actually go through with it.

unless things have changed in the past few months, zegna has its own textile mills, thus make their own fabric. i don't understand how your tailor is a "zegna fabric supplier" unless he or she is talking about the fabric for pieces from their lower end diffusion lines (z zegna, zegna sport)

I think the sales rep said something about Zegna's Z line, so I guess that's it.

It's not just a single tailor, it's a pretty big place.. not a cheap area to have a storefront, either, and $495 is definitely the cheapest I've heard of for a fully custom suit

Why do you need a custom suit? What is the benefit from going from a CK suit to the custom one?

So my experience has been that any name brand suits can't compete with a tailor made suit in both quality and look. How much are you willing to spend? The tailor I use is based in HK but the travel to various cities around the world throughout the year and meet their clients in a nice hotel room to do the measurements, etc. Once the suit is done, they ship it to you. I'm not sure how they do adjustments though but in my case the fit was near perfect and I've gotten a lot of compliments. IIRC, I paid a little more than $600 for mine.

"greys and blues for a party because this is the party theme"

Awkward English aside, you are clearly going to a party celebrating the American civil war. Union or Confederacy? And also..

In custom clothing tailors follow traditions & customs to design the cloths, it doesn't matter that where to get those from but they should be from famous tailors as LifetimeTailorhk. They also usually trip to the countries and bring their skills to many other countries. They provide online services to the customers.
