Total noob here... Been trolling SF for some time, but due to $$$/laziness, I've been wearing ill fitting suits, poorly done MTM shirts, and just barely getting by. Now that all has to change and I'm hoping SF can help me out.
About me: 26, 5'5", 28" waist, 125lb and super thin, short arms (~29"-30")... OTR suits & shirts are basically impossible for me. I'm young, like to wear colorful socks, slim fit pants, skinny ties, friends think I know a lot about fashion when really I'm a beginner...
Anyways, I'm a groomsman at a black tie wedding (upper class NYC, everyone will be well dressed) in a few months and in 7 days I will be in Hong Kong for 2.5 weeks. Due to an insane travelling schedule, this is basically my only chance to get something made in time for the wedding. Added bonus if this same tux could work for my wedding some day.
So, I'm considering getting a bespoke tuxedo made while in HK and SF seems to recommend W.W.Chan. Should I visit someone else in HK (A Man Hing Cheong, Ascot Chang, Jantzen)?
I need so much help filling in the blanks / mistakes below. Probably not good to walk into my tailoring appointment not knowing what I'm talking about.
Color: Black (groom is telling me black only so I think midnight blue is out of the question)
Fabric: ??? (Not a clue, HELP!)
Lapel: Peak (how small can I make it? As I said, I'm thin), GrosGrain finish, With a
Jacket Type: One Botton
Sleeve Length: Show 1/2" French Cuff
Sleeves: tapered / slim
Vents: Double Vent
Pockets: double besom sewn shut, GrosGrain twill weave
Fit: Super Slim Fit
GrosGrain twill weave down the sides
No Cuffs, Hemmed with minimal Break
Tapered, Urban Slim Fit
Shirt (should I get this made at the same tailor or somewhere else?)
Placket: hidden (should I get a 4-button removable placket as well?)
Collar: Spread, Turndown
Fit: Super Slim Fit
Bow Tie: Self Tie, Black GrosGrain (is this ok? http://www.thetiebar.com/order_page_bowties.asp?pn=B1228 )
Cummerbund / Waistcoat / Vest: Not sure where else to get a Cummerbund except with the tailor (will they make this?) Should I instead opt for a vest or waistcoat?
I know there are tons of details I'm missing. I just really want this all to turn out well as this is a significant amount of money for me. I'm really hoping you guys can help me fill in the missing blanks and stuff I haven't even thought of.
-Buttons on Pants?
-Type of Buttons for jacket / shirt / pants?
-Placement for embroidering of initials on Shirt / Jacket, if at all?
