Lee Baron Suit or just something otr?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi, I just recently moved to HK and I need to get one suit. I am pretty tall and slim and most suits do not fit me off the rack, but I guess if I look at the higher priced segment, I will be able to find something, that fits me. The thing is, that now that I lurk SF for a long time now, I of course went to Lee Baron to let him show me some of his materials and ask for the prices. They ranged from 5700 HK$ to 6000 HK$ fully canvassed (of course prices depending on the material). As I am a student right now, these prices would set me back a lot. My question is whether it is worth it to go bespoke or just look for some reduced suits of whatever brand. It would help me, if people could post some of their suits that they got made by Peter Lee and share their experience (in terms of quality, fit, peter lee's style etc.) IN OTHER WORDS: Is a lee baron suit worth 500-600€? BTW: I have seen two threads where a user posted his suits made by Lee and they looked pretty well, but the pictures were very small, so not a lot could be seen... Kind regards, Eric

If you search around you'll find some things on Peter Lee. Here's one of my posts: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=169754 Good luck!

this one is exactly one of the two i found with pictures in it. (the other one is from you as well)

so what is your experience with the baron suits? would you say they are worth the money? and do you have any experience with their own material (except for the linen SC you got made)?

I'll post some pictures later of a brown flannel suit Peter did for me, and which I'm quite happy with. I would say going bespoke is worth the money, as it will last you much longer that any on-sale designer suit. As for the stock fabrics Peter has, they really are not particularly special, but still very decent. Just get something you like the look of. Although there is no shortage of places on the Net where you can go berserk with fabric shopping.

I think even though he's raised prices a bit they are still worth it. If you can find something off-the-rack that fits you almost perfectly for 300 euros it's tough to beat that, but Peter will definitely take good care of you. He also makes great shirts which are well worth a shot.

was there today and ordered a suit, as i really could not find anything in my size rtw in hong kong that was in my price range.

the suit i ordered is 150s wool cashmere in navy (something like this) with double vent, 2 horn button, 4 kissing buttons on the cuff (off course working button holes), wide lapels with working buttoniere and buttoniere cord, middle soft shoulders, trousers with one pleat, side adjusters, and 1 3/4 inch cuff.

I am excited about my first fitting which is next week wednesday.

If you took the trouble to use the Search function you would see innumerable threads on the options for HK.
