I would disagree on both counts. Having had suits from both in the past I have settled on Yao with considerable satisfaction and pleasure.

Got my items last week.

Yao's workmanship is on par with Chan if not better.

No wonder they call you taxgenius; please let us know if there is an appropriate (or inappropriate) loophole.

I wish. With the Chan price increase, I am tempted to go local.

maybe it has something to do with the weakness of the USD (and accordingly the HKD)

No, they mentioned something about wool prices going up.

You may just regret that; not sure there is much better value for money. Also, haven't 'local' wool prices gone up?

I priced a specific fabric at Chan and at Ercole (NYC) with Chan being $200 cheaper. However, when you add in Chan's shipping costs for a basted fitting, they are the same cost.

tg - can't you deduct the suits if you have your name embroidered (on the outside) and use it for work? I have not done this, but I'm asking =)

It would only be deductible if it were a condition of employment and the clothes were not suitable for everyday wear.

well, if the suit is embroidered on the left chest above the pocket - "Dr. Ray, Psychiatry" - that fits the conditions and would be deductible, correct? ala a lab coat, but instead a suit...

FTW: Ask for embroidery using basting thread.

Interesting. No personal experience with Ercole's; just seen NYR's stuff and read his stories about the operation. Very appealing. Then again, can't go wrong with Patrick at Chan's. Just curious: what fabric are you contemplating?
