What the market price for tailor made a blazer? Need to tailor made one for my graduation.
$300-$3000 and up. Easier for us to give further advice if the type of cloths, level of workmanship is specified

I seen his work. Not quite sure his shirts are bespoke. I would say more towards high-end Mtm. I could be mistaken though...
Vis-a-vis Turnbull & Asser standards of bespoke shirting, I believe you are correct with regard to KS. KS doesn't (or hasn't, in my case) offer fabric bastes that clients can take home, wear a few times, wash and return for remeasurements before the final piece is cut/sewn.

Not just that. I don't recall an individual paper pattern is developed for the customer.

Anyone has anywhere to recommend to tailor a suit+pants? Wanted to go back to dylan but it seems he's unable to fit me in this week

Looking for somewhere where they can cut it like dylan, slim/skinny modern cut.

Usually, a shirt cannot be altered to make larger, as allowances were not provided for in the first place.
