The gorge is a matter of personal taste. So it is up to you. Regarding the trousers you should simply ask Patrick about the saggy back and it he can fix it with These trousers or if it would get better e.g. with flat front trousers.

Had my first fitting today at the trunk show in DC. Very nice experience. I ordered a 2 button suit, birdseye 110s in grey as my first with them.

Bump

I will be meeting with them in July for the first time since 2009 and am frightened to see how high prices have climbed.

I can't comment on shirt pricing, but for tailored items, count on about a 40% to 50% price increase.

Expect something around HKD 1500 to 1600 for a shirt from a 100s cotton fabric and unfused collar. With a fused collar it should be a wee bit cheaper.

So, I've been a Chan customer for a long time and at a recent fitting with @Limniscate, we decided to alter my existing suits. Partially to do standard things like letting them out a bit.. but mostly because I have pretty straight shoulders and we decided to just remove all the padding in my shoulders all together. We also tried to even out my sides a bit since, when buttoned, there was some pulling due to one of my shoulders being higher than the other.

I got them back and changed jobs where I don't wear jackets much anymore. I'm pretty satisfied with the trouser fit, or at least it is making progress and am thinking of using MyTailor to copy them for inexpensive cotton trousers.. The jacket has gotten much worse with the sleeve pitch being all fucked up and the back being very sloppy, and the asymmetry in my shoulders being very accentuated. I've emailed these pictures to Chan to see how they intend to fix it - and I don't want to wait till November when they are next in town, especially since I have a Carlo Barbera SC on the way from them, but am curious as to what y'all think. Pictures in different light etc after the break, I've also posted pics of fits from Chan earlier in this thread - check them out for context. Fabric is Dugdale.
