HK Tailors: A-Man Hing Cheong and WW Chan - Page 4

post #46 of 80
Sorry if this question seems odd. I notice in the sitting pictures that your jacket is unbuttoned. Is this a choice on your part or a necessity resulting from the cut/fit of the suit?

Choice.

It's a custom high spread collar with the collar stays removed.

I hear pretty much everywhere that you should unbutton your jacket when sitting. I think it's especially necessary if you're wearing a lower fastening jacket than what whoopee's got on. I do it if only for the fact that it gives me a gentlemanly aura.

I've been lurking for a pretty long while, but this post inspired me to come out of the shadow. Your post is very informative and helpful.

Excellent suits. This is exactly what I want my suits to look like, but instead of one button I'd like to have two. From what you described your body type to be, mine is pretty similar. I'm about 6' and have an athletic build.

I'll be going to HK in about 3 months and thanks to you I'll be commisioning Chan for about 4 suits.

dont do four all at once, do one, get it right, then place the supplementary order.

good luck with your Channing and hope it works out well for you

Yeah that's what I was thinking. I've also read that it takes a while for any tailor to get your specific wish correct. So I'm not looking to rush anything.

I'll be in HK for a while, maybe a month, so I'd have time to get that first one done right and then go for the other three and still have enough time to try them on while still in HK.

Thanks for your input m@T. Your Viet Nam stories are very inspirational as well. Your posts are very in tune with how I think. As long as the suit looks good and fits right I don't see the difference in paying $300 or $3000.

Does any HK tailor stock heavyweight fabric stalwarts such as Minnis or Harrison's?

whoopee, great thread! I think you already know that I'm a great fan of your choice in suit silhouette(s), however, I'm just beginning to learn what features I need to specify and I'm also still searching for a style to flatter my figure. Posts like these, and the attendent discussion, help me enormously. Thanks!!

I think A-Man do stock heavier English fabrics. Minnis (along with other mills) make some for H&S and they can order them. Someone on AA mentioned that Y William Yu are the HK agents for Lesser.

Thanks for such a great post, a very enjoyable read. Whoopee, if you don't mind, could you contrast these two suits with your Kilgour? I seem to remember you saying you had a Kilgour bespoke, or entry bespoke. They're in NY soon, and a bit on my mind...

I don't have the clothes with me but I may have a saved pic or two. I'll do a short write-up over the weekend.

This thread has inspired me take the plunge and get measure with WW Chan during their July visit to Washington DC. However, after having sent an email and having used their apointment setup form from their website a week back, I still have not heard from them. Is this common? Or should I just give them a call. If calling, which shop to call and who to ask for? Thanks.
