PL is more likely to buy me a beer than give me any discount, i dont think any of us earlier boys do and i was the first and dont get any favors aprt from a beer or a zero when i am in

perhaps i should be more demanding

just be sure you ask what you are getting for the money, if you want a better made product, then you'll pay for it, but make sure you are clear with what you want from the start otherwise you might think you are getting shafted, and helping pay for LC's beer

Haha thanks. Well to be honest, being a first timer there, and given the price, I guess subliminally I wanted to ultimately try their fit first, I've been snooping around SF a lot and the overall consensus is that PL is good, at any rate still stoked to get my shirts this week and then try em out (perhaps making more when i get em!)

PL is a nice guy, and offers great value - have fun and good luck!

I just bought 1.8yd of 100's Alumo at HK$350/yd, going to make a new shirt. I know that price is not so good, but still not bad I think.

I think Ascot Chang and Chan will charge a Alumo 100's shirt at HK$1,500+ now.

Where do you get your Alumo in HK?
