Dude it's a deal It was originally 640
So how IS the quality of the gear @ Suitsupply? I've never heard of this brand until this article. Had a peek at their website and their stuff looks good. How does it compare to say J Crew (both of which I have not been because I live in HK), better comparison is...........Zara?

Of course the LV/Goyard/Charvet are must go's

I see. I live in HK at the moment, still trying to grasp the tailoring game.

My dad was helping me iron them the other day and he said the thread was "shrinking" making it incredibly hard to iron. I...

Gentlemen, So I'm going to Peter Lee for the first time to make a summer suit (along with a shirt or two), what sort of things do I have to keep in mind? I just did a search and realise that a fully canvassed suit will cost be around 5500 HKD (starting). Other than that, what should I keep in mind? Some facts about me: I just recently made a suit elsewhere in HK, the shoulder is the biggest issue and I am somewhat bulky up top (for local HKer standards), so too much...
