facet: nice. You have any pics of your Modernize suit? Mine is still under construction, first fitting in the next week or so I guess. They work more on Savile Row time than Hong Kong time :P I think I'll be able to have swatches sent from the UK to Canada, fabric from the UK to Hong Kong, two suits made by my tailor there, and shipped to Canada, all in the time it takes Modernize to get to the second fitting, hehe.   James' shirt pics coming once I take a shower.
Monologue return!   Got my first shirt in from James'. Pretty pleased with it. Fabric is very nice, looks to be quite a lot of handwork on the shirt. Fit is good, might want to do a few tweaks for a second order but pretty close. I'll try and post some pics and comparisons with Jantzen and my regular HK tailor tomorrow.

You can see the prices for the huddersfieldcloth.com stuff if you create an account and sign in. The 'cool new wool' is currently GBP 33.18 per metre.
not to disrupt the tweedy flow, but just in case anyone was following, I was able to get huddersfield cloth to send me a couple of swatches of the 'cool new wool' stuff and then have a couple of suit lengths shipped to my tailor in HK, and it's definitely the Bateman Ogden Panache. Nice stuff, I'm having the HC1124 and HC1126 (huddersfield's numbers) made up. Definitely a bargain at the price. I got a couple of swatches of the Minnis Fresco to compare, and they seem pretty...
