Having Hong Kong copy your principal tailor for summer suits is something well dressed men have been doing for generations. I've been very happy with mine so far, and I'm about to start #3 in cashmere and cotton. I'm pretty sure Minnis Fresco is around $1200 for a two piece or $1600 for a three piece. Same for the...
If I were you, I would see Chan on his next visit and order 3 frescos. Buy a round trip ticket to Hong Kong. Fly there when the suits are ready for a fitting, and deal with the fit and style issues you have. This will cost you less than one Rubinacci, and you can consider these suits disposable. (I say this as someone who wears only Chan.) Since New York is really hot for only a short time, six to eight weeks, it should grate less than compromising on your heavier...

This would make flashy colours one might otherwise consider, such as red, for example, utterly ridiculous, if one ever wishes to take the jacket off. Thoughts on this? I...
Quote: Originally Posted by coltboy75 How much should I expect to pay to have a suit pressed from a professional cleaner? I've taken suits to be pressed in two circumstances: (1) caught in the rain wearing a suit that's been recently cleaned; (2) receiving a suit back from the tailor (Chan). The cleaners I use (Margaret's in La Jolla) charges around $40 which is nearly the same to press as to clean the suit.
Quote: Originally Posted by Winot I m chewing over this problem at the moment. My first suit from Meyer & Mortimer was a three piece (13oz blue Smiths herringbone) with trousers cut for braces. Very comfortable; high rise and no pulling. I am about to order a two piece in a Minnis Airborne (7oz) and am wondering whether to stick with braces or go for belt loops. The solution would appear to be extra trousers. The belt has to be cinched...

Is there a difference between dupioni and shantung silk?
