I don't mean to give the impression that I don't like or wouldn't recommend Chan. Whatever dissatisfaction I have is really a result of using a tailor located across an ocean. I don't know if any tailor could manufacture a perfect suit without intermediate fittings. That is why I am considering trying a local...

Brooks cordovan wingtips http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...default_color= purchased at the Brooks sale 25% + 15% off. I'm not keeping them so I'm offering them to anyone for my cost $409.50 plush shipping. Size is 12C. Color is #8 burgundy.

I'm sure Patrick will take care of it, but sending them back to Chan again at a cost of sixty or seventy dollars and waiting 3 months isn't something I relish. If the next suit comes in as I hope it will, then I won't...

While I'm not ready to walk away from Chan completely, I am pursuing local options for both suits (Lopez) and shirts (Hamilton). Depending on how those work out, I may make my temporary Chan break permanent. I'm thinking about such a move. There is a good local option but it's 50%...

My first two Chan suits were sent back for adjustments both...
Balmuir II and Tavistock II are both nice. I have a brown Cleveland that I like alot. The Sandown is a great boot wearable with suits.

Better to have two Chan suits than one Chan suit and three Thai suits. Chan is far superior in terms of quality of construction, fit, and attention to detail than any Thai tailor I've seen. The Thai stuff is of such poor quality that even if it fits to the degree that it is wearable (which is by...

Can anyone comment if this is a decent hotel? Decent location? Any other recommendations including sights or guidebooks would be greatly...
