Raymond is nice but tailorman is better and cheaper with better quality wools ( cost comparison )

If you want top end suits - syed bhawkar is the best in the business in Chennai. I think he has a Mumbai location too. He starts at 50k, but well worth it.

If I were you, I would purchase something in USA with suit supply or indochino. That way you can continue buying there for other suits and not dependent on indian tailors as they have/ need lead times.

Buying in india is great until there is an issue and you end up going back needing to get it altered in a time crunch.

Also, a suit is as good as the fit and almost all premium wools are available across all major tailors. If you tend to put on weight or lose weight it’s not worth getting a super expensive suit( say this worth experience )

Suits are so much better in India than here. Get it stitched, fitting > fabric. Agree on Raymond’s.

Get it from India , Raymond’s

suits are better in the US.

Agree with the Raymond’s recommendation

Highly recommend it to get it in India. I was looking at wedding level suits and Tuxedos in US which was going to cost me $1k at minimum. In India I had so many options to custom make suits with best fabrics and tailors available. Ended getting a Van heusen tuxedo for like $300 with all included.

For my wedding last year, I was searching for suits here in the US. Didn't find a good one.
Went to Raymond's and got it stitched. Was so happy with the cloth and the fitting.
Raymond's has a measured to fit kinda thing where they have premium quality cloth. Even that tends to be cheaper than buying a readymade fir suit here

I get 4-5 suits yearly stitched in india with Raymond . Some of the better tailors have some other good material options. Found a lot of good 120’s Italian wool and suits came out to be around 300 a pop my tux was 400 in Mumbai

You can get it made in India but have at least 2 weeks in hand. Raymond's is good... It's custom made and stitched in their factory.. That's why the lead time required. You can choose to skip the factory option and have the Raymond tailor stitch it for you too, I believe.
In the US, try a premium outlet mall if you have one in your city/close by. You can often get some great deals. During my marriage, it came down to a Armani vs Hugo Boss suit for me.. Both were a great deal in a premium outlet mall. I went with the Armani

If you buy it here, it's like you will end up buying a shade of blue, Grey or black so you can wear it to work. If you buy it in India, try to avoid buying something flashy or a pastel color as pastel colored shits are not common for men in the US. Good luck!
