Still Waiting for Chan

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I note there have been several fellows who have already posted about having received their suits from the W.W. Chan March tour some while ago. Patrick had said "late June," but with other men getting theirs much sooner, I'm getting a little worried and fretful. Are any other forumites still waiting for their March Chan orders. If so, please let me know and put my mind at ease.

I think LA orders were marked "end of June." I sent them an email in April letting them know that I needed the suits before then, and they responded that it would be no problem. No contact since then.

Thanks, "retro." That's somewhat reassuring. Of course, you were the fellow who really turned me onto Chan. Are you going to be seeing Patrick on his July visit?

I am still awaiting my March order. Patrick mentioned simply "June", so it could be a few more weeks.

Still waiting also. End of June is what Patrick estimated, so I have a few more weeks of anticipation.

I just got the shipping confirmation today. Suits to arrive by next Friday. I don't think I'm going to be hitting the July tour stop this time around, unless I decide to get a couple of shirts made. I have started to encroach on my wife's closet space, which is a bad thing on many levels.

I got my shipping confirmation on Monday, so it's any day now.

Oh no, I still haven't got my confirmation yet. Well, maybe it'll arrive today. Since "retro" and I are more or less "homies," I'll keep my fingers crossed that my order will arrive around the same time as his.

Thanks for your interest. I e-mailed them yesterday and hope to hear from them momentarily. Much cheaper than a phone call. There is a possibility that my notification from Chan could have arrived in my "Bulk" e-mail, which I customarily delete without perusal.

Just heard from Mr. Wong at Chan. They are shipping out my order June 25, and I should be receiving it a week or so thereafter. If anybody else is in the same boat concerning their March orders, this may be reassuring. As I recall, Chan's US agent is based in Rosemead, CA, which is only about 20 or 25 miles from my house, so this may work to my advantage in getting my order promptly. Had kind of hoped to receive my blazer in time to take advantage of it during our period of "June gloom," but it looks as if our real summer weather is kicking in when I don't like to wear any kind of jacket except under dire necessity. However, I am sure worse disappointments will befall me in my remaining few years in this ol' world of woe and dread.

Finally got my Chan order yesterday. I am totally pleased with the tailoring on my new blazer. (Sorry, I can't post photos.) The Holland & Sherry buttons are not what I thought Mr. Chu and I had agreed upon, but they are so similar I can't complain...if I wasn't confused about this matter to begin with. The fabric is a Vitale Barberis Canonico Super 130, which is what Mr. Chu recommended. However, I have some misgivings about its long-time durability given how frequently I wear a blazer. On the positive side, it should make an excellent summer jacket. The shirt I ordered was also an excellent fit...makes me dissatisfied with every other dress shirt I own. (I can only wonder how an Alexander Kabbaz shirt would make me feel.) They did screw up one detail. I had ordered French cuffs, I got barrel cuffs. Since I had had some misgivings about ordering the French cuffs, Chan's mistake did not trouble me unduly. In all, though, extremely pleased and eagerly awaiting my next Chan appointment in a little over three weeks.

They'll replace the cuffs on your shirt if you point that out.  They made a mistake on one of my collars and replaced it when notified of the mistake. dan EDIT: I think you'll be pleased with the VBC 130s. It's held up fine under significant use from me. Just don't dry clean it all the time.
