Hkd 2900 (usd 375 ) for a tailor made full canvas jacket is unreasonable to ask for too much . How can you tell the padding are hand stitched ? Which type of padding ? Are you talking about the linning instead ?How much did you pay for the shirt from British Tailors ? Have you received the replacement shirt ? Is it ok ?
There are several British Tailors in HK , where is the one you are using ?Do you mind to tell us how much do you pay , fabric and construction method .
14 oz Fresco also has charcoal and black . Not many choices .
Mine is 533 dark navy (i think HFW re-number after Fresco III ). I use as blazer suit . The jacket is my favourite all year jacket.
14 oz fresco maybe a little hotter than 2 ply . However , the weave is very porus . I can wear it in August . On the other hand I have 4 ply finmeresco 11 oz, densley weaive . I cannot wear for August .

Please aware most high end HK tailor shops offer baste fitting and forward fitting . They called final delivery third fitting . Is this the 3 fittings you want ? To me it is not . Better ask the tailor shops what is their actual 3 fittings mean ?
If you require 3 fittings , it is a lot of work to the tailors, it is no point to use cheap house fabric or vbc . VBC can be as low as hk$2xx per yard . Use better workhorse British fabric will cost marginally more.A full canvas suit average takes 3~5 days to make .
