If you mean Raymond Kiang/Eleganza Uomo, I don't remember the exact price they offered me, but I believe it was around 600 euros for a 2-piece suit with three shirts. They made a point of stressing that their jackets are fully canvassed by the way.

Doesn't matter at all in terms of what people will think of you. I work in a government department and on office days could easily go to work in jeans+jumper. In student environments it's even less important - in fact depending on where you enrol, dressing well will be seen with suspicion by many,...
Looks great from the back and a tad large from the front. Not that you couldn't wear it though. In the front picture it looks as though the right-hand sleeve is shorter than the left one, or your right shoulder hangs lower. (I have the same problem.)

You don't have to impress a woman that is into you. If a woman likes you, it's not about the date, it's about being around you and getting to know you. If she is picky about where she wants to go, for instance, she "only wants to...
no, I'm saying that's what it says on the label:
...better late than never: I was in Shanghai in October and had three shirts made at Eleganza Uomo. Price, if I remember rightly, was RMB 1,000 for all three. Measurements Wednesday afternoon, fitting Thursday or Friday (don't remember), collection Saturday afternoon. I can't take pictures of the other two shirts right now as they are in the other flat. I am quite pleased overall for a first effort. I'd give both fit and workmanship a B+, relative to what I've...

Emma, I don't want to go through 33 pages to find out if this issue has been mentioned yet, so please excuse if yes. I live in Germany and ordered the trial shirt not long ago. As it turns out, the parcel was shipped with EMS. Apparently, EMS has a private-sector partner in Germany by the name of GDSK, which "intercepts" all incoming EMS parcels from China. This firm now wants a whopping 25,59 euros "service fee" before they send on the parcel ON TOP of the shipping...
late reply... Thanks for the heads-up on Eleganza Uomo, JLibourel. I'll be in Shanghai again for a few days next week. Not sure if there will be time to have anything made, but Eleganza Uomo seem to have a shop in Pudong, which is convenient as I'll be staying in a hotel there. If I have anything made, I'll report back.
Z by Costa-Gavras from 1969 - absolutely brilliant film. Tremors, maybe? Definitely underrated where I live, maybe less so in the US... Hard Eight (early Paul Thomas Anderson with Gwyneth Paltrow) Nine Queens - excellent Argentinian movie about a group of con-men in Buenos Aires One True Thing Hamlet - the Branagh version This is England You Can Count on Me (I'm a big fan of both Laura Linney and Mark Ruffalo) Respiro (Italian movie with Valeria...
