Except the shirt cuff lengths (very minor), the rest is excellent.
Cloth is rather lightweight though.

I'd love to see the back.

This looks to be a clean generally well fitting evening dress.

Is the button position giving rise to the appearance of being a tad too tight?

Are you able to have someone photograph your back view, with and without the coat? It would be interesting to see how well Chan has fitted the coat and dealt with some wrinkles that have been seen in recent coats in this thread, similarly the trousers which have been terrible because they are cut too high.

We are too old school these days.

Chan do prefer to cut a slight tight front waistline, showing a few lines across the waist. It is considered as well-fitted and fashionable these days.

The wrinkle on the sleeves in inevitable given OP did not go for the classic fabric choice.

Ah, thank you for this enlightening comment, however, no thank you, like you I will stay old school, far more elegant than this.

I'd say a combination of a few things give rise to that appearance... The end of an evening of sitting for dinner, the symphony, and driving = wrinkling throughout unfortunately. That, and a rather scrumptious dinner satisfied.gif

I'll see if I can get some pictures of the back next time I'm in black tie... this weekend!

Seems like this thread went dry and W.W. Chan seems not really being mentioned much anymore. I am curious if W.W. Chan customers on styleforum have moved on and where they turned to for their bespoke projects.

Also, I recently looked at upcoming tour dates and was a bit stunned to see that Europe will only be visited in March (only a single day in London and Zurich, Frankfurt is completely out) and not thereafter crazy.gif

I think as their prices creeped up they were no longer the value they once were and customers have moved on. But I am curious where they moved on too.

I think all the upper-end tailor's prices have gone up. I've gone to Simpson Sin and used AC for CMT which is/was reasonable.

They did a recent offer with Dugdale fabric that reduced prices somewhat I believe, it's probably over now. Someone was saying that there have been some internal staff 're-allocation'.
