Just thought I'd update with my experience: FIRST IMPRESSION: I recently finished my first fitting with Patrick Chu yesterday. Things went well, although he took my Mr. Ned jacket to measure and I wasn't looking to replicate that style. He and his assistant did things very well - the room was not too crowded or overflowing with clients (as I have seen with other visiting HK tailors). Everyone had a half hour timeslot and there was only 1 other client there at the time. Total time took just over an hour from picking fabric to jacket measurements to picking out details and finally measuring me and discussing stylisting points. Everyone had reservations and was marked as new or returning. He had a large selection of suiting materials and shirt fabrics. PRICES: VBCs were $1300 for 2 piece suits to start Zegnas, Holland & Sherry, Scabbal were all $1650-2000 to start for 2 piece suits. Shirts were in the $170 range. TIMELINE: He said that most people would be getting a suit around June or so. If you wanted several fittings back and forth, they were willing to ship the basted suit to you at your cost (as has been discussed in other threads). He was willing to send these measurements back to HK for me since I will be there next month and said it could be finished in a few days there. In sum, it was a good experience, Patrick was exactly as gracious as described by many and was very accomodating, although I didn't ask for anything outrageous.
