Depends on your face...
I would be curious to know if they have raised their prices too. Also, do they mail fabric swatche so you can order once your pattern is dialed in?

It's interesting that both the shirt and suit fit similarly, did you ask for things to be a little more "relaxed fit"? Or did you lose a lot of weight since they were both commissioned? I told them I work and live in two fairly conservative environments and do not like tight clothing. Plus this gives me more...

Honestly, they shouldn't have let you walk out with the shirt looking like that. Oh, and you should have the back pleated. Did you insist on no pleats? No, the upper back is "puckered" to give me more room. I am thinking about asking for pleats next time. I will wash...
Thanks everyone. You should know that I wore that shirt to work all day so it is somewhat wrinkled from that. Thanks for the photoshop. That was very helpful. The suit I like a lot and I think the alterations are pretty minor. The suits fits better than anything else I own, and my next one should be close to perfect. I think the shirt is not very flattering but not a disaster. I would love a PS Foof'ed shirt if you want to do that. Otherwise, I will just tell the...

Not to be a stickler but I don't think it's 'bespoke' when there's only one fitting... again, I'm hoping someone with experience would say Chan can make a cleaner suit with more fittings? I am definitely impressed with what they did in one measuring. For what its worth I think the definition of bespoke is made completely for you with no sample pattern...
