Attached are 3 suits I had made at a popular Hong Kong tailor. The two I on the right are about 1.5 years old and are extremely comfortable and, in my opinion, look very good. The one on the left is brand new (2 left pics are same suit). It is a bit closer to the body but, unfortunately, this made the body look less shaped. I also think the shoulders are about 0.5 too narrow and that the shoulders look better with a little "turn up" at the end. I also had the length...
I use both as well. My WW chan suits fit just a bit better and seem a bit more stylish. The interlinings, buttons etc also seem higher quality. I use GY for warm weather suits because everything is just a bit lighter.
I would buy it if it looks good. I personally would not because black makes me look "washed out"
Just placed my latest order with Luxire. I wasn't completely happy with outcome of my first two based on measurements (my fault I am sure) so I just sent in an old MTM shirt to be copied. I sent Cordings corduroy pants to be copied too which fit me very well. I chose Dugdale flannel for the pants and "pale blue end on end" for the shirt. If the pants work out maybe my I can save money by having my bespoke tailor just make jackets for me and have Luxire make the pants. I...
Thanks. I figured it was something like that. Just wanted to give you the heads up just in case.

After whiffing on sizing with some of the Japanese brands and having to eat the ebay resale delta, I just tried on some of the indigo ST jeans at Brooklyn Denim company and bought a pair 1 size down from my normal chino size. Very happy with them. Good to know this brand is out there. I may buy the 17 oz version come winter. FYI Kiya just noticed that on the SE website most of the 3-16 jeans are listed as unsanfordized but on the 3Sixteen they are listed as sanfordized.
Ugh ^ Did not realize they had a regular fit in this model as well. I thought I bought tapered version. Expensive mistake ouch!
Just bought some Samuari s0500xx 15 oz Texas cotton jeans from BIG. I wear a 34 in most pants. I tried on a 36 in the store and they fit well (buttonable but snug). So the salesman told me to go with a 34. I just finished a hot soak and warm machine wash and they are still pretty loose. Any chance they have not shrunk all the way? Or Should I just bite the bullet and sell them on the forums or Ebay at a loss?
Does anyone have pictures comparing the R and F lasts they can post? I am about to order regular black calf plain captoe and wingtip.
