My Double Breasted Chan - Page 2

I like it. Very nice tailoring. How much did this run you? One of these days, I'm getting a DB 4x2... I don't care if anyone says skinny men shouldn't wear them.

Who says skinny men shouldn't wear DB? Or is it just the 4x2 that's bad. I have a DB 6x2 in my future, admittedly my very distant future, but it's there calling me.

No one of whom I am aware.

Thanks. If I remember correctly, it was $970.

That's really an incredible price for such a gorgeous suit. The cut and fabric seem to be top-notch.

This is the nicest looking Chan suit I've seen. I've been trying to talk myself out of meeting up with Patrick in some city close to Vancouver next tour, figuring I'll eventually make it to HK or Shanghai on business and then be able to do multiple fittings. But I think I want one sooner now.

Love it. Great look. Beautiful, well-fitting suit, nice shirt, elegant tie, and just a splash of interest in the pocket square. Very well put together. Kudos.

A renewed thanks for the positive comments. Of my three Chan suits, this is unquestionably my favorite.

I was a bit reluctant to take the double-breasted plunge with Chan, because I hadn't yet seen an example of their attempt at a DB. So successful was this effort that it's put me in something of a quandary. As I indicated in a previous post, I'm ordering a blazer from Chan through e-mail, using my measurements on file. I had intended to order a SB blazer, but this has started me thinking about a DB. Still I know a SB would likely be more versatile. Thoughts?

Great suit! If I were to pick nits, I'd point out that the left sleeve might be a touch shorter than the right, and the top button might be pulling...then again, that could very well be your posture or the way the fabric is sitting for these pics.

I've said this before, but it only refers to some suits with broader peak lapels. David Hyde Pierce, from Frasier, wore some like this earlier in the show's run, and they looked a bit awkward. VG's suit, however, looks fantastic on him - he rocks the DB!

DB blue blazer would be the way to go.
