I dealt with Andy Hira when he visited Dublin, Ireland. Very good salesman - not pushy like other travelling tailors - very keen to assess exactly what the custome would like and 'tailor' accordingly. Really good selection of cloths, measured up well. Took about six weeks, I think, all in all. Good results and more than happy to do minor alterations when I collected. Quality was very good indeed, but not a great deal cheaper than the few local tailors who work in the continuum between MTM and bespoke and with whom it's easier to build a rapport. But all in all, well worth a try - very genuine firm with high standards (full canvassing and all the other fripperies to which we're addicted).
Have dealt with Shane Hira when he was touring Canada. Roughly similar experience but Shane was not willing to do the alterations. Quality was fine but since I have to use my local tailor for final fitting, I might as well maintain the relationship and give them the business next time. I suspect that final fitting is a problem for all the itinerant tailors when they are touring the colonies.
Am editing this to be fair: My local tailor tells me that the final adjustments are really minor (as Shane said) and the quality is very very good.
