Gordon Yao - Page 15

post #211 of 249
Slight pitch issues with the sleeve on Yao's, but overall it looks great. Nice door BTW.

Resurrecting an older thread. Svenn, did you bring your own 21oz cloth or did Gordon Yao have it in stock? I'm curious if most HK tailors have access to these heavyweight fabrics.

Btw, is that a P&B Universal navy cloth or something else?

Met with Gordon Yao during his most recent US tour.

His latest CMT prices are $750 + $75 (shipping).

I thought it was still $710. I just saw him on his last tour (2-3 weeks ago) and he said it was the same.

I mailed it to Yao myself, I highly doubt any HK tailors carry something that heavy unless they make overcoats. It's Huddersfield Dark Navy Twill, you can see it on their website, about $300 for 4 yards. Very tightly woven and doesn't seem what you'd think 21 oz would be like, i.e. not overly-warm or anything.

Great suit, Svenn! Would you mind describing its characteristics (ie the tailoring choices you made), for someone new to the bespoke world--or indeed, anything other than OTR? It would be most informative.

In case anyone is interested, he has a website up and running now.

He could use some better pictures on that site. The shirt/tie combos and obnoxious pick stitching on the current pictures are and not representative of actual pieces that I've seen from him.

I wonder what made him get one now?

No personal experience, but from what I have read about him here, this site could do more justice to his work. I like the history section, but a work gallery may be helpful.

Did you order a suit at the $710 price during the Nov 2010 tour? My receipt shows $750 for the CMT order price (+ shipping) and I had to mail the suit fabric to him.

His website is better late than never. His upcoming tour itinerary is useful to note.

I didn't order anything on the tour but saw him in January and had a suit made up which I think was a bit less than $750.

Pictures are aweful.

Please note that Gordon Yao is a tailor shop, very much like London House. The actual cutter/tailor has little to do with the shop. What you get depends on who the suit is actually made by. Gordon was, no doubt, a good cutter/tailor, I am sure, but now he mostly lends an eye to fitting and answers emails.

Perhaps his prices for local HK customers are lower than for customers from the US tour.

I got this in an email from them....The price for a CMT (2 piece suit) is US$1200-. The price for a CMT trousers only is US$280- each.

Thoughts?
