Where should I look for information on becoming a bespoke tailor (through books/self-education, training, and/or apprenticeship) in the United States?

I am interesting in learning to become a bespoke trailor, but I am unsure where to begin my education. Any suggestions for excellent and rigorous books, training programs, or apprenticeship opportunities would be much appreciated. I don't have much money at my disposal. Ideally, I would like to teach myself some basic skills, such that I can seek out a paid apprenticeship. The finest craftsmanship is a big priority for me, so I'm mostly interested in resources that will help me achieve excellence... no messing around here!
Thank you for your insights and suggestions in advance!
