Yes absolutely!A VBC 10/11oz at Gordon cost 9980HKD/$1280 US while the same fabric at Dream Bespoke is roughly 6800HKD/$880 US. $400 is nothing to sneeze at!. I have no clue what WWChan prices are now but I assume they are more then Gordon ever since they moved from Nathan Rd. to Central.
I used to use WWChan exclusively but this was the first time I visited HK and decided to try 2 highly recommended tailors, Dream Bespoke and Gordon Yao. So now I have three places to compare workmanship. In a few, I will post pics of the workmanship however I can start by comparing the three tailors. It's hard to compare them one on one because the Dream Bespoke and Gordon Yao was rush jobs based on my one and a half week stay in HK where as my WWChan suit was all...
Hi, I noticed an interesting shoe at Tommy.com http://usa.tommy.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/en/thb2cus/7827728?Color=ANTIQUE%20INDIGO Made with Vachetta Leather, seems like an interesting style. Would anyone have first hand knowledge of this boot and whether it's goodyear welted, what the soles look like, the lining, etc
For anyone that order from their March tour, did anyone not receive their order? I haven't received mines yet. I emailed them a few days ago and they haven't responded yet.
How does Venetian shoe work on calf leather, I am thinking of buying a tin and storing in a used shoe cream glass at work. I know how it's recommend for cordovan but how it is compared to say normal shoe creams. TIA

I see nothing wrong with sole guards. Any resoling that is not from the original manufacturer will most of the time feel different. I rather just replace the sole guards then to resole the shoes. I think it's better that way. I had shoes done by Mina's on Wall Street. He uses a Vibram sole guards similar to the look of Topys and not the wedge shaped threads of other Vibram sole guards shown on this forum before. For anyone who uses B. Nelson, I rather use Mina's...
How are the prices now compared to other traveling HK Tailors?

For the average home chef, learning how to sharpen a knife is more important then getting a high end knife. I rather have people buy say a Dexter Russell or a Forshner then a Shun any day of the week. These inexpensive knives are the knives most restaurants use and work great. I really can't imagine the average home chef maintaining a japanese knife with it's super hard alloy. I think most people need to know that super hard metal knives need to be resharpen. Where as...
