USD400 is enough for most high end brand "normal wool wrosted"(Super 100's, may be up to Super 120's) mid weight (9-10oz) suit farbic, like H&S, Scabal, Zegna, if you know where to buy.

I just want to make sure- does Yao have a semi-sophisticated default (house) style?- i.e. high armholes, conforming and non-bulky canvassing, and minimal shoulder padding if requested? And he does the proper number of fittings? I know what else I want in terms of lapel width and shape, amount of waist suppression, open quarters, and all around slim-fit... I hope that's specific enough for Yao.
The 'estrato' stretch wool I mentioned before is 120's and like 8 ouces I believe... I hope that's not too light, flimsy or shiny??!! And wouldn't look odd on the 'hard' cut savile-row type style i was hoping for.
Also, if anyone could post pics of what Yao did for you that would be great, on this thread or the other one I resurrected.
