I'm interested as well, I emailed Gordon before the new year and his price was in the 5000 range. I'm secretly hoping the 7500 quote included cloth.
Cmt = bring your own cloth. Figure 200 usd or more with cloth included

I believe she's only in town for a few days. They work faster during for in-store customers. I got 48 hour turnaround a couple weeks ago.
Reviving an old post, but was at the outlet today and there were only custom grade church's at the outlet now.

You can get a fully canvassed two-piece from Peter at US$700 onwards and the RJ stuff at about US$1000. IMO, that's way better than picking something off some tout at Nathan Road.

Quote: Originally Posted by Macan As an owner of a small tailoring shop, I personally think that everybody should be able to afford quality bespoke garments at affordable price. Well price varies depending on the fabrics and how much labor is spent on making the garment, there still should be service available for the people out there who want to have decent custom made suits at affordable price. Most of my potential customers have this perception...
