 Yes they're machine made. Jacket price is around 300 EUR I believe
 Absolutely possible indeed! I usually just send a jacket to replicate with fabric and there he goes on producing it. Just know that if you want incredible handmade buttonholes, it's better to ask him not to make them, especially the lapel buttonhole.
 Haha, aren't you the cranky type? I'm not purely advertising. I would say that I am trying to promote the work of promising new tailors. I don't get any commission or anything like it. I just try to encourage people pursuing the bespoke way. Kevin certainly has yet to master certain things but he's producing a fine product in my opinion. I'll let his customers speak for themselves if some happen to see this thread. Those that I've seen wearing the final product in the...

THE NEW GENERATION OF BESPOKE TAILORING KEVIN SEAH Paul LUX17 August 2014 These days, it is unusual to find a young man whose dream is to become a Master Tailor.
