Question from a Seminarian: Where to Get a Good Cassock?

The following was sent in by a seminarian, and it seems best to let the collective experience of our readership speak to the point:

I'm entering seminary soon and am looking for a dignified, but reasonably priced cassock and surplice?

I think its fair to say that Gammarelli's will not be the suggestion that this seminarian is after given that budget is a concern as well. So that said, what have our readers found to be good quality cassock and surplice makers for clerics, and why?

For my own part, a key part of the criteria would be the quality of the fabric, and that real cloth covered buttons are used rather than snaps or anything of that sort.
