I love it as well,...

For "free" you say? So you think 46% marginal tax rates with very low thresholds (that's in Ontario, even worse in Quebec and the Maritimes) are free? There are a lot of reasonable arguments for universal health care, but pretending it's free...

Although it's four season fabric (and I was concerned it might be too heavy for southeast Asia, where I live), I've found the weight of the cloth works well for me, at least indoors. Any chance you could post a pic? Would love to get different shots of the fabric since they can look so different in...
Quote: Originally Posted by DandySF Did you specifically request 120 cloth? I'm leaning a bit more toward 100 since it's a bit sturdier and less prone to wrinkling.

Didn't mention it before, but also open to other fabric suggestions.
Gents, I'm contemplating a second commission from Chan - a solid / semi-solid in dark grey or charcoal, since my first was a solid navy. I live in Toronto, and am looking for a 3 season suit, so all the fabrics here are 9-10 ounces. Patrick sent me a bunch of pics, if any of you have any experience with them, or just general opinions please share. It's tough getting a feel for the fabrics through pics, so I will only order if I'm very comfortable with whatever fabric I...

They already have your measurements so it shouldn't be a problem ordering over the phone/e-mail. I'm relatively happy with the suit I ordered, but there are still a few tweaks I'd like to make that would be far easier to communicate in person. Also, I find it difficult evaluating fabrics just from pictures, since they...
Quote: Originally Posted by CutandSew I have this feeling that most Torontonians don't care about MTM or bespoke clothing. I think most would be happy with the ready to wear offerings of Harry Rosen or Holt's. I could be wrong, but that's just the sense that I get, with the exception of canadian styleforum members, of course. While that is probably true, I'm hoping there's enough SFers alone who may be interested to fill up a day's worth of...
For all the Canucks out there: Chan recently canceled its scheduled visit to Toronto in July. When I inquired as to the reason, they said they now had no plans to visit Toronto in the foreseeable future until they have received sufficient interest to make it worth a one-day stop. I just had a suit made by Chan in Chicago, but am moving back to Toronto this summer, and would very much like to continue working with Patrick on future commissions. They are far better...
Won't be able to take pics for a bit, but wanted to see if there was any interest out there first. NIB Borrelli Luxury Vintage collection captoes, color is a very light tan. Marked an 8.5D, but would definitely fit a 9D (maybe even a 9.5). For reference, I'm an 8.5C/D in AE Park Avenues, and a 7.5E on C&J's 338 last, and these feel at least a half size big, maybe even a full size. NIB with dustbags, only tried on inside on carpet. Retail on these is in the $900...
