Thanks for the detailed response Rishi and good luck with the venture.Dib
Hi ThereCongratulations on your new venture, although I have to say there are a few elements that don't quite stack up for me.A few questions and comments (in no particular order):(1) You set out above why your ties are unique. I'm not sure what differentiates your ties from, for example, TM Lewin (they also make their ties from 100% silk, cut on the bias, offer over 100 designs etc etc) and offer ties in a similar price bracket.(2) You mention above that ALL of your ties...
Do you have an eta of when you may receive the Steadfast book?
Does anybody know of tailors in HK who carry the Smiths steadfast book (preferably in central)? I know Chan has it, but they have taken it on tour at the moment.
Given you have already paid a deposit, i would continue with the process and see what they can do. If the final product ends up being unacceptable/unwearable then cut your losses at that point (i.e. tell them you aren't prepared to take the suit or pay the balance). The only additional thing you would have lost from this point on would have been the time taken to go to subsequent fittings.
ok, and when you spoke to them on the phone and they said they need to confirm you presumably replied "who do you need to confirm with" etc? Sorry to labour the point, but i just find it very strange that they would not give you a helpful answer if you were asking the right questions... In any case, if they aren't giving you a price the likely reason is because they are trying to confirm availibility of the fabric and/or the latest price with the supplier. Can't think of...
ok, why dont you just give them a call - it will take 30 seconds tops and give you a more definitive answer than anyone on here will be able to?
What do you mean by you have "placed an order"? Typically Chan take 50% at the outset when placing the order, so i can't see that they would have accepted an order (and taken the deposit) without confirming price. More importantly, what is their response when you ask for the price?
The fact the tie is untipped has no impact on the knot - the two are entirely unrelated
Out of curiosity, why are you looking at wool/cashmere blends? You mention durability is a priority - 100% wool suits are, in general, going to be much more durable than a wool/cashmere blend, so i would avoid looking at fabrics with cashmere in them.Edit - sorry, just seen you are leaning towards the Harrisons frontier fabric, which i think is 100% wool, in which case my above comments doesn't apply!
