I had my last H&S suit made by Sam. I would go back to him once I have time and can decide on what i want to commission next.

Communication is key to a tailoring experience, and Sam is a nice person to speak/work with. *Plus this is a really cheap way to speak to a lawyer.
Be careful what you say.... he might decide to charge you consultation fees for browsing the swatches....

Hi guys, i'm doing a market research on office shirts. I can't find the old Office Wear thread.

Please help me to do a quick survey.

Don't worry, it's not a viral link nor a spam.

Thanks in advance!

Lol. Don't worry.
Lawyers don't charge folks for browsing their impressive law journals and binders.

It is only when their scissors are out that one should worry.

Can't speak for TAC but from conversations with them, they do the drafting and cutting of the fabrics. Whether that implies that they have individual paper patterns is something I'm not sure of.
There's

Preset mtm block pattern manipulation

Drafting formula (freehand using Squares etc)

and yolo rock of the eye (pure freehand)

could be either.

Though a personal bespoke paper pattern would only consist of the last two.

However, generally when someone offers the service they would highlight it, as its a higher level of craft.

If manipulation of a block pattern to the point where it is the same as a pattern drafted freehand, would you consider it to be bespoke? Assuming that there will be a paper pattern for both methods.

Can anyone here share the pricing at inpersonam? Thanks!
I know that TAC is currently having a suit promotion. Suits can be commissioned at 1.2k with a shirt thrown in. Huge range of fabrics to choose from.
Would appreciate if anyone can share prices for their vbc and linen suits and wool pants and chinos.
Thank you.

It would still be mtm

Even though differences in fit may be negligible for all practical purpose.

However the differences would be more apparent on unusual body types

@arcfire, how about making a list of CMT tailors?
does cmt stands for customed made tailor? If so isn't all tailor all customed made or am I wrong?

Anyway I'm v new to tailoring and stuffs and would like to seek the laojiaos advice regarding shirt and pants tailoring for a first timer like me with restricted budget.
Where will y'all recommend me to get my first tailoring service done? Starting work soon, so new tailor made shirt and pants.

Thanks!

CMT is for those who like to bring/use their own fabrics.

Restricted budget is how restricted?

The price range for the tailors commonly recommended here can be found in part 1/2.
