 Yes. agree.  Isn't B&Tailor from S. Korea? Do they have shop in Sydney? How does it work? what is their price range?   I think lots of HK based tailors travel to US, UK, now Australia too. I might have to wait until I go to HK to get the suit made in a proper way... thanks for all the comments guys!
The Meermin ruby cordovan boots look fantastic.    Actually I ordered a pair of swede loafer from Meermin few weeks ago. the process was painless. From order to receiving the goods took less than 3 weeks. Quality is very good considering the price. it fits very well. no surprises.That was my first time ordering from Meermin and that was my first Meermins too. It comes with channel sole.   For the Cordovan boots, last time I checked was about 500 euro. Good value I...
 Thanks for your comment Jay. WW Chan is actually here in Sydney from tomorrow and Friday. I am considering getting a suit made. I had a chat with them on the phone and they advised that there won't be any subsequent fittings. They recommended me to bring / wear my suit for them to measure as well. Price is starting from $13,000. HKD for the VBC Super 140's. it takes about 4 months. What are people's thoughts about it?  I might go to HK next year. Should I wait to do it...
What are the pros and cons of using travelling tailor in a trunk show? I did a search and couldn't find anything.    I guess one of the cons is that you won't get the fittings which is important for the bespoke experience. The pros is that you save the cost of travelling.   If you don't get the fittings from bespoke tailors such as B&Tailor, Kevin Seah or WW Chan, is it comparable of  getting a MTM suit?   Is it recommended if you never have "Bespoke" suits?   Also...
The problem seems to be gone after my rant. I have posted the following two threads eariler. would like to hear people's thought:   "your thoughts on Cartier Watch - Tank series.   http://www.cartier.co.uk/#/show-me/timepieces/w5200004-tank-solo-watch,-large-model   http://www.cartier.co.uk/#/show-me/timepieces/w5200003-tank-solo-watch,-large-model   I am looking for dress watch with leather strap, budget is about $2.5k"     and   "Last time...
I found it extremely difficult to join the conversation being new here at SF. Everytime I put up a post I was reminded that because I am new it needs to go through the screening process to make sure I am " human"... I don't know who invent this process but it is frustrating because my post would then show up 24 hours after.   I would be lucky to get any response...   And no, I don't want to stack up my posts just for the sake of it.   end of rant. and thanks...
Last time when I picked up my suits from the tailor I saw there were a pile of ties hanging. the tailor told me that he has been doing lots of tie lately, slimming the width and length to give them a more modern look. all by hand of course.   I didn't even think of such service existed... have people tailored their tie before? what are your thoughts on this?

Previously I was seeking advice from the forum members about finding a good alteration place for my suit. I am glad to report back that I am a happy customer from Hayal and Son in the Sydney CBD. However they are definitely not cheap.   Also I just like to say that I have made a massive mistake by wearing my near new Crocket and Jones on a rainy day in the Sydney CBD. I think I have pretty much ruined the beautiful leather sole, and almost got myself killed...(skiing...
  good insight there, thanks for the info Prince.   Have you guys noticed the suits in Farage are all in peak lapels? I also agree that MJ suits seem to be better quality compared to Farage. Price is cheaper as well.   is there a Paul Smith stocklist here in Sydney? What do people think about their suits?
