Lol don't get me started on that......I am a complete noob in this area and some members here have suggested doing that but providing absolutely no info on where to source fabrics.

Send a PM to SFer Badsha, he can set you up. I just got an order back from PL, using fabric from Badsha and buttons from another SFer. Price for 2 shirts with return shipping to the US was 1,000 HKD. The fabric adds another $50 to $150 USD per shirt and I then have to ship the fabric to HK, so it's a bit more complicated, but it compares favorably with the cost of a shirt from Chan or AC. That said, it's not quite the same level of workmanship, unfortunately, even with lots of communication.

If I lived in HK or visited often, I would definitely do this, but the hassle factor makes it a less palatable choice. I'm reasonably happy with mytailor and their $125 to 140 Thomas Mason fabrics, so I'll probably stick with them for work shirts.

Who, sir, is your tailor?

No idea if he does, but if you google "tweed by the metre", you will find many suppliers. CMT is less than 5000 HKD for a two-piece, about 1000 more for a three-piece.

Acorn is a reputable supplier, and have excellent customer service.

Sorry, Joe Hemrajani of mytailor.com. He has an office in California and tours the U.S., but manufactures in HK. I don't know if he has any HK retail presence.

I see. I live in HK at the moment, still trying to grasp the tailoring game. I already have a suit from Jantzen (the cheapest range), the jacket doesn't fit and the pants are not sewn properly (there's a hole in the left pant calf area, fixed it and still no avail).

I have another suit made from this place called Moustache run by two white dudes. The shoulders have way too much padding though after trying it out again and again at home (going to get that fixed tomorrow), and the suit is quite heavy as well.

My biggest concern is to get some light materials. Oddly enough my current fav suit is a OTR from Zara. It's not a perfect fit but the jacket is light and lightly padded, and the pants are light as well.....but it is literally falling apart after 6 months of wearing it....
