Eric, welcome to SF.

I have been a satisfied customer of WW Chan for the past year. What helped me get over the uncertainties involved with long-distance bespoke tailoring was that on SF I was able to read dozens of in-depth reviews of previous customers' experiences with Chan (with pictures), together with long lists of tips and advice for how best to interact with their travelling cutters to achieve an ideal outcome.

(It was also very critical for me that Chan offers cloth from the mills/distributors most favored by Savile Row tailors as well as this and other internet forums - Lesser, Harrisons, Porter & Harding, Minnis, Hardy, Smith Woolens, etc.)

Would you be interested in describing the ordering process with the travelling GY cutter and perhaps pictures of the various styles that GY has executed in the past? If you were to browse around SF, you would see that there are currently some specific highly favored styles. I'm talking about soft shoulders, soft canvas, shirtsleeve shoulder construction, patch pockets, slim/tapered trousers with large cuffs, etc.

Not to be crass, but what is pricing like? Are there any trips to the Washington, DC area planned soon?
post #19 of 296
Any chance of adding an online or by email ordering process for those of us not in cities that typically host trunk shows?

Most of the questions you guys have, including pictures, are in this older Yao thread:

http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?p=4284124

Welcome Eric... are you Gordon's son I assume? Gordon and his tailor made me a very nice suit when I was in HK, even though I had a lot of strange requests I'm hoping to get another one made... he has my pattern in HK but I'm wondering if he would require another fitting if I wanted to make some slight alterations in the fit?

I am no customer (yet), but the pics you recently posted in another thread certainly speak to their product .

IF you're in HK I'd get another fitting. GY is pretty good at the measurements. 3 suits were made without fittings and I think they fit very well.

I made two posts in the CBD thread this week in which I was wearing Yao suits, if you'd like a reference. I'll try to post some additional pictures of their work.

Hi sellahi22,

Thank you very much for your valuable input. We agreed that it is important to demonstrate more of our works with pictures, and provide some online reviews and ordering advice to our first time clients. We are working toward this direction and will have a style reference section on our website soon. It will include various styles that we have done in the past.

We are also expanding our fabrics selection. As a matter of fact, we did work with Minnis, Hardy and other mentioned fabrics and we are in discussion to offer more selection to our clients. I'll update new fabrics availability here in the future.

Regarding the ordering process, lets assume we travel to your city and able to meet at our hotel for measurement. We bring along latest fabrics samples from various mills with us and you may select the fabrics at the appointment. Then we will take your measurements carefully and ask for your style preference and mark down any specific requirement. We can also give professional advice if necessary. To help make the suit right at the first time, it is advisable to wear your good fit suit jacket with you on the date for measurement. The suits will be made at our workshop in Hong Kong. Once completed, we will ship the suits to you. We are very experience in taking orders with this arrangement and have many satisfy customers. On the other hand, if you happen to travel to Hong Kong, you may come to our shop to do the same and we will arrange fitting sections for you.

Mr. Gordon Yao will be traveling to the US this June, you may arrange an appointment to meet with him.

Let me know if anything I can help.
