While I do not have a sufficient basis of knowledge to compare quality of construction to ALL of the English or Italian bespoke houses, I do believe one receives very good value for the price.
just because one uses a paper pattern ans has multi-fittings does not make something truely bespoke any M2M could use a paper pattern as it would take up less space and give you 2 fitting also! so according to you this makes it bespoke! as it covers all your expectation of what bespoke is! or maybe i could put it a simplier way ordering a stake medium rare - cooked to your liking - so is this bespoke too!
this thread was suppose to offer the poster options as to a tailor whom is comparable to chan outside of asia hence my recomendations to visit non SR tailors in Soho - i am sure the poster does not care the in's and out of is it - is it not bespoke!
if one of us had said brooks brothers or topman or george for asda then yes you can come back with comments like yours as nobody has not said that chan's suit are not value for money i just offered an alternative outside of asia - which(not to repeat myself too many times) is the titloe of the thread.
with this is you have not suggestions in other citys whether in the states or europe then then why bother to post as all you do is take the thread of course!
