For Sale:
W.W. Chan and Peter Lee in W. Bill tweed & Minnis flannel

Will Ship To: Anywhere

Hi Guys,

Some closet cleaning at deep discounts. Some jackets and a suit I've had commissioned in Hong Kong over the past few years. All items have been stored safely in protected, breathable large garment bags in a smoke free environment. All have double vents.

All of these have VERY soft construction. I nudged both Chan and Peter as far as they were willing to go with using the minimal amount of shoulder padding/wadding plus a soft canvas to excellent results. They all wear like sweaters. All have working buttonholes in various configurations.

Peter has been great to work with and I do plan on working with him more when I am in Hong Kong, but the fit of these just isn't what I go for these days. 3 years ago I wanted things slimmer and I've also gained a few pounds so that doesn't work well with my current drape preferences. Peter did all I asked, but my mentality just changed a bit. Construction on all of them is excellent and I've never had any issues. I'm about 6"1 and 165 and Peter's stuff is just a bit too snug. If you're around 5"10 and 155 these should work pretty nicely. Likely still a fitted look, but comfortable enough. Chan's is roomier and fits me well now.

Makes me sad to have a bigger chest. Really nice custom jackets with the nicest fabrics! How the hell in a board full of 36R/38R people are these still available?

Some can be seen here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/169754/w-w-chan-and-peter-lee-tailor-report-in-hk-part-deux/0_30

I am 6'1 and 165 pounds. I think the Peter Lee items would work best for someone just a slight touch smaller than that. The Chan is fine as is and I may just keep it. Only reason I even have that up as I am having some London Lounge herringbone donegal made up at some point and not sure I need to. The colors are different enough though that they don't compete too much with each other.

If the Peter Lee items don't sell for these prices relatively soon I'll probably just end up giving them to my father and brother-in-law.

Hmm... Do you think these would work for a slim 40R? 5' 11' 180 pounds. Chest is a touch below 40".

Just an FYI that the brown POW flannel will be given to my brother-in-law tonight if no one wants it.

Your brother-in-law is a lucky man.

He's received a few things from me, but, alas, this didn't fit him so still up for sale.

Sheesh guys the fabric for this stuff alone costs almost as much as the jackets!
