+1, the Chan MOP buttons are some of the best I have seen, and their hand-shanked buttons are a really nice touch.Quote:
Are you able to tell where to buy TM fabric (as I thought TM don't sell direct to the public)?post #18 of 439/24/12 at 7:20pmQuote:
Sorry, The answer is no. There ain't no free lunch. I can give you some hints, you can find the wholesaler tel. no. on the books.
Hmm.. depend on what you means selling to public. They do wholesale business. So if you just buy 2 yards as a new customer, then of course they will turn you down. But if you buy 20 yards in cash, then they will sell it to you.post #19 of 439/24/12 at 10:13pmI think WW Chan can make a good shirt even though they are suit maker. If you visit them in HK, they will even do fitting for shirts.
AC's specialty is shirts and they pay great attention to detail in producing a well-fitting shirt.
Price-wise, you may be able to get some of the less expensive TM Silverline from WW Chan at $150, but the same shirt will be $180-200 at AC.post #20 of 439/25/12 at 4:44ampost #21 of 439/26/12 at 8:57pmpost #22 of 439/26/12 at 10:26pmpost #23 of 439/26/12 at 11:26pmpost #24 of 439/26/12 at 11:46pmQuote:
Maybe you haven't been in that mall, those are definitely shirtmakers
But I guess you have plenty in your phonebook.post #25 of 439/27/12 at 12:23amQuote:
Many small shirtmakers shop in the mall is not "real" shirtmaker, they don't have their "own" workshops, they just take the order and send the order out, like most tailor shop do.post #26 of 439/27/12 at 2:04amQuote:
I saw them cutting patterns from the shirt, don't worry I know their game.post #27 of 439/27/12 at 2:18ampost #28 of 439/27/12 at 2:35ampost #29 of 434/9/13 at 10:28pm
I have made 2 shirts from AC around Nov last year, I think it was due to poor market condition, they are quite easy on me. I only made 2 shirts, one using their house fabric (cost around USD160), the other one from TM (cost around USD225). So I can say that the 3 pieces rule is gone and I am not a VIP, in fact I am just a first timer. I went their Peninsula shop.post #30 of 434/10/13 at 7:19amQuote:Originally Posted by The Cat

I have the same experience at IFC shop. I just have two shirts made in 6 month time. I just order one each time telling them I wanted to give a try.
I quite like them but I have a sloping shoulder on right side and am still trying to fix the pattern.
