It seems to be this guys first time, so I doubt he could give the tailor qualified direction or pick the right fabric or styling details.
My friend who got the 4 or 5 day suit from WW Chan had never ordered custom before, and it worked out just fine. Â I'd hazard a guess that styling issues would be minimal if you trust them and just follow the prevailing trend. Â When finalizing an order I always ask what most of their customers are ordering lately, and it never seems to be outlandish or out of the ordinary. Â I'd bet that the greatest portion of their business is probably 2- or 3-button notch lapel coats with flap pockets, and double reverse pleated pants with cuffs. Â It would be pretty hard to get out of their shop with some kind of NFL draft day suit--unlike a lot of other shops in TST. HK shops, at least the more expensive ones, work very fast and have a lot of shop capacity, especially if they know you are coming. Ascot Chang once brought me 6 shirts in less than 24 hours.
