Please critique new velvet jacket! - Page 2

What's his rates for a jacket like that?

I'm pretty happy with the cost. It cost 6900 HKD, USD 890. Fully canvassed, fully lined, and with Holland and Sherry Cotton/Modal velvet. I was shocked by the price because when I went around to other tailors (like the less well regarded Tai Pan Row), they quoted me USD 1900 for a jacket made of the Holland and Sherry material. Apparently Y William Yu is the distributor for HK and Shanghai, so is able to offer wholesale prices to his customers (though this price difference remains rather stark even in light of this). Needless to say, much more satisfied with this than the garbage Sam's made for me...

Overall its nice, I would agree that the cut us about 3/4" short, but given that it is being worn in a casual way that don't matter all that much. Hacking pockets and a Ticket pocket get the OK from me, and I wouldn't mess with the sleeve pitch too much.

I wish I had the balls to pull of a bottle green velvet jacket somewhere other than the opera!

Thanks for the info... I'll have to stop by when if I go visit HK

I don't think it's short at all, get some better jeans that are the right length and it will look fine.

Did you give Andy any input on the style? Or did the man take the helm?
