Does anyone know why chan sends all the finished work to their agent in the US before they send it off to the customer?

I'm fairly certain it is, although the fabric I selected was not the heaviest--a concession to the subtropical climate here in the People's Republic.

I'll take a picture or two at the fitting (March 15th). It's only at the basted stage.

BTW I think you made a good decision to ask for a fitting. Patrick made lots of adjustments during my fitting. Also I wore a jacket to my fitting b/c I wanted the overcoat to fit over a suit/sweater etc.

It may have something to do with importation law and getting it through customs. At least that's my surmise.

I ordered a suit when Mr. Chu was in San Francisco, the last stop of the November tour, and I have not yet received notification from the U.S. agent. I have ordered suits from the company previously and I only needed some minor changes from my previous measurements. I don't need the suit right away but I am eager for its arrival.

Must save a lot on shipping and customs work to combine multiple items in one international shipment to be then dispatched domestically.

You really shouldn't use that word poorsod.

Calling English people the L word (the one that rhymes with grimy that you used) is basically the same as the following: calling black people the N word (the one that rhymes with trigger), calling Irish people the M word (the one that rhymes with kick), calling Italian people the G word (the one that rhymes with whinny) and so on.

'limey' is fair game. as long as 'seppo' is.

This happened to me in October, to my annoyance. And when the jacket finally arrived, I wasn't thrilled with the result. It was my second order -- the first was excellent, but some of our adjustments seemed to have taken things in the wrong direction.

I've resolved to do fittings on all my Chan orders for the time being. My two jackets (basted) arrived last week, and I'll have a fitting with Patrick in DC tomorrow. (They seem to make sure basted garments arrive ahead of the fitting.)

My second suit I ordered from Chan got sent to the wrong address and the agent shipped it back to Chan. Luckily, I called to inquire about my suit and they told me I refused shipment. I told them I never received shipment and asked when it was delivered and it turned out they shipped to someone else's address. I'm grateful that the addresse was honest enough to refuse delivery.

Here are a couple of pictures from the basted fitting this morning, courtesy of young Miss Vintage Gent, spending the first hours of her spring break snapping photos of the blessed event. I also ordered a brown linen suit in the Harrison's Mersolair.
