    The problem with most online MTM is that it isn’t going to address asymmetry like that. You are going to need a tailor to do that, whether it’s tailoring something OTR or making something that is legitimately customized to you rather than just cut from a template based on measurements you provide.

    Uneven shoulders, that'll do it. Most MTM won't accommodate that too well, since in the end it's still a set pattern. You'll have to have a rather specific conversation with the staff member to see if they are able to do asymmetrical shoulders. Perhaps two different shoulder pad sizes will help.

    One alternative to check is Men's Wearhouse. The majority of their stuff isn't great, but the Joseph Abboud line of suits are US or Canadian products. Moreover, they offer the Abboud line through a MTM program with, IIRC, three fits that will allow you to mix and match pants and jackets. Nice wools, Bemberg lined, reasonable prices, and you do the measurements in person which, if you get someone experienced, may allow for adjustment for your shoulders.

    if you haven't already, definitely go into a suitsupply and get sized by a sales associate. their experts know their stuff, they ship them out of state for weeks of training, no joke

    I was under the impression that tailoring shoulders is usually more expensive than having a jacket made to fit from the beginning. It almost certainly would have been more expensive than the last 2 suit jackets I bought.

    How can I trust Men's Wearhouse without George ? That might be a good option though. I will check that out as well. Interesting idea about different shoulder pads.

    I really do need to do that, especially since they have a store here in Atlanta.

    Also the outlet is all Final Sale so going into the Atlanta location before January to speak to them about your issues but also try on a few of the different cut options is a good idea. The outlet stock goes fast on wheelhouse items so you are much better off knowing fits and sizing ahead of time so you can pull the trigger.
