Big congrats on becoming a father very soon, wish you all the joy in a few months time.Although I don't think 4 months is adequate time, I suggest to place your order before July will give Lai adequate time to finish your order before you leave Hong Kong.
Just be warned Lai's waiting list is very long now For new orders.I don't see any real problems on your trousers except some minor shortening. In fact the two suits you posted looks very good to me.I think Lai has a softer look by default, I consider my stuff from other tailor much sharper.Although Lai stuff has slimmer effect. But I find your suit pretty well proportioned.
Well at least I can fall back on Okuyama or Spigola since I have worked with them before.
Cleverley just returned to me and price is within my means.
Besides west end firms.. what other maker one can think of?
