Suit critique, please. (Bespoke Beijing) - Page 3

post #31 of 37
I contacted them and sent a few emails back and forth. Apparently they are willing to have me send in a suit and copy it. At the price they quoted me, I'm going to take the risk and see what they come up with. It'll probably be a while for the whole process to complete, but I'll post a thread with the original suit vs. the one they come up with.

Right now it's close to Chinese New Year so all their workers have gone home. During regular season I think one-day turn around is quite do-able.

what the fuck?!?! you gotta be shitting me with those prices. You have to take some cack too??

If you didnt mean to add an extra zero on those prices, you did excellent. i really like the look of the suits...especially the 3 piece.

This is very interesting. What makes a suit 3-dimensional? What will be the difference in the pattern?

As far as I know, a real "drape suit" is quite rare -- not many people in the world can successfully cut it. Based on what I read Alan Flusser is the only guy in the US who can do a real drape.

One thing I do know, is that most Asian tailors are not good at handling fabrics finer than 130's. The reason I believe is that they simply don't have enough exposure to handling high super-number fabrics. 150's behaves very differently from 130's. And because of the low cost they offer to the majority of their customers, they spend most of their time working with 100's-130's and haven't mastered the skills of handling 150's and up.

They cut from a million measurements without much imagination and consideration for functional/stylistic features. Hence you end up with a coat that fits when you are standing still and make you look like you just walked out of a press.

I'm not talking about drape cut....

If you had told me the cheapo shopping plaza suit was Tom Ford, I'd have believed you.

Achilles: A 3-piece with Chinese 130's runs about $250.

pvrhye: sharp eyes -- my hat off to you!! that last peak lapel plaid suit is exactly modeled after a Tom Ford, whose pic was taken from the Rake. Actually I gave that photo to the shop and asked them to make a copy.
