need a suit: bespoke / made-to-measure recommendations?

“I need a nice suit for a big event in a few months. I’m a big dude so I have trouble buying off the rack, so I was thinking made-to-measure or custom. Budget probably tops out around $2,500 though obviously if I can get away with spending less, it would be great. The last Popville thread on this was 4+ years ago, so I’m hoping for some updated advice.

Any experience with Paul Stuart (MTM), Enzo Custom, or Geoffrey Lewis (custom), which are the three I’m considering at the moment? And any other options I should look at? (E.g., Suitsupply? I have a number of suits from Suitsupply, any experience with their MTM?)

I’m a little wary of what I’ll call the e-tailors (Black Lapel, Indochino, maybe even including Alton Lane); is that concern misplaced?
