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...
I think the way I am standing makes the shoulder look sort of odd. There is a small divet on my left shoulder that needs to be addressed. I do generally like a more conservative, American look than many on this board and the pants and shirt may reflect that. Next time I will probably take some fullness out. Someone told me the jacket is not balanced back to front. Could you explain that please? As for the shirt, what should I tell Genenva? Take some fullness out of the...

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...
I would really like feedback on my first two bespoke items. I am a pretty conservative guy (I eat dinner in a suit about twice a week at a club) and work in finance where I regularly interact with clients, and wear a suit almost every day. The WW Chan I got in one fitting in New York. It is 11oz Holland and Sherry Cape Horn Vista. It is extremely comfortable and fits me much better than suit I have ever worn. The pants are obviously too long, but that's an easy fix. I...
No experience with those specifically but most of my bespoke shirts are Alumo and they are the best cottons I have ever had.
Chan told me the serial number for the cloth and I have an email in with H&S. I suppose its possible they wrote it down wrong at the fitting because I was looking at a number of cloths, or I had some kind of brain cramp. Is twill less formal? I am not a fan of it on shirts because it is on so many cotton pants that you can easily turn into Twillman.

I just received my first suit from WW Chan. I was measured once and picked my fabric in New York in January. The fit is fantastic, workmanship appears top notch. The difference between OTR and bespoke is unbelievable. But I think they used the wrong fabric. I chose charcoal Holland and Sherry fabric 11oz part wool part cashmere.. I received a pretty hefty charcoal Holland and Sherry with a TWILL weave. What I ordered was called Holland and Sherry Cape Horn Vista. Also...
