Peter Lee - latest pricing - Page 3

post #31 of 43

Very intrigued by the difference in the TS quote and the latest one posted, will be going to HK at the end of July (start of August) and if anyone could provide more insight on the pricing matter, would be greatly appreciated.  Also, for those who have been to Peter Lee, did you manage to bargain at all?

And

Fully canvassed suit (floating canvass) will be HK$2,000 more on each suit.

So that is $4900 for a fully cavassed suit with their in-house materials.

Will be going to HK in May - hope they don't go up by too much.


please do not say floating. a canvas does not float.
dwarfer is right the term is "canvassed".

Easy there - I am just quoting word for word what Peter Lee said to me.

 

I did get some further clarification from Peter Lee on the what he means by "floating canvas"

 

Wanted to clarify your fully canvassed suits - 

1) Does the canvas go from the shoulder down to the hem of the jacket? This covers the lapel as well I assume?

Yes, all the way down, Yes, lapel also.

2) What material is the canvas?

Wool canvass and horse tail hair.

3) Is this hand stitched on?

Yes, will be stitched on by hand

4) There is a felt layer on top of this?

Yes, there will be a felt layer on the top of the canavass.

 

Judging by his answers and what I have red about canvassed suits on this forum and Google - it seems like the correct method. Would appreciate someone would let me know if this is incorrect.

 

Will be in Hong Kong in about 2 weeks time so I'II give an update on what his prices are.

Yes. 2800 for blue linen sport coat plus 2000 for canvassed (takes approximately 5 days with 2 fittings)

 

Khaki cotton pants 900

 

French blue and dark navy wool pants 1100 and 1200 respectively (takes approximately 2-3 days - 1st fitting only required waist to be let out)

 

Shirts vary from 280, 380 and 560 depending on the fabric. add 50 for mother of pearl buttons. (shirts take approximately 2 days - first fitting and the fit was spot on)

 

Prices are in HKD.

 

They are all very knowledgable and provide excellent service. Overall very happy with the end result.

Was in the shop today to get a quote. It's $5500 HKD for a full canvassed suit with their in house material, and $380 HKD for their non fused collar shirts.

There are several ways to make a floating canvas suit and the result are different. It maybe difficult to judge the price by just stating the suit is fully canvass. It may help by asking how the canvass is put on the jacket.

SORRY BUT A CANVAS DOES NOT FLOAT.

yes you are judging correctly.
that number one defines a canvas it needs no adjective.
the other questions are not necessary, as each tailor makes the canvas
in the manner that works best for his system.
peter is a tailor who knows that a canvas does not float.
and he is a good business man. and most customers are not
knowledgeable about tailoring terms. so he uses the terms that
that those customers come in with. its easier that way.

hope that you and peter lee have a good customer tailor relationship.

Refer to question 3, does the canvass has any machine stitch? It can be a machine stitch canvass and attached by hand.

Which part of his canvass jacket use machine?

Hi all, 

 

I am going to visit PL later this year, and I haven't heard back from him on the last email I sent. I am wondering if anyone has his most recent pricing for tailored shirts (including the fabric). If so, could you please share/post? Thanks in advance.
