$599 for a Custom Two-Piece Suit ($1,300 Value)
During a 30- to 45-minute visit, tailors take measurements and consult with their clients on desired styles and Italian- and English-wool fabrics. They then place an order to their design house, after which the suit arrives in about three weeks. Clients can pick up their suits in the store or order them delivered to their homes for an additional fee. The tailors offer premium features, such as functional buttonholes on sleeves and hand-embroidered initials, at no extra charge.
