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

I told them I'd made an appointment and they told me to sit down. Turns out they thought it was someone else of the same name. But nevertheless guy...
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...
A proper (good) Panini in Hong Kong. That or Tapas. OR Just a good Grill Cheese

Oh yeah I've definitely been, it's a great shop, actually planning to go this weekend.

I really like the rounded extreme cutaway collars, other than that from the pics alone...nothing that different right? Random: we need more of these stores in ASIA (Hong Kong and elsewhere, not just Japan)

Just mu thoughts. Yeah I would agree with that, I'm in a curious stage in my "sartorial career" where I just want to try different avenues. I made a couple shirts with Peter Lee in the entry level price range and I enjoy it, but out of sheet laziness (of...
