Alex, my suit is not the lower range suit in your shop, and I told your tailor and your sales that I don't want a fused suit, they said its ok. However, at the day i take the suit, your staff told me that it is a fused one. And he said that he cant make any changes this time, if i want a full canvas one just pay more 800 for it. I am sure that i will pay 800 more for the full canvas one if he tell me in advance.
its true that you cheaper than the top end tailor in HK, but not the mid level one. And the fabric you use is 2-3 fold then the original price.
I dont think I will remake my suit anymore.
Sorry about that
Also in regards to pricing, it isn't 2-3x the original price if you factor in labor, etc but as mentioned earlier it is still significantly cheaper then other mid level tailors and definitely top end tailors.
I'm sorry if the pricing offends you but at the end of the day as mentioned by other members in other posts, if you buy a can of coke at a warehouse, it will be cheaper then a grocery store, and still significantly cheaper then a cafe or a hotel restaurant! It's difficult for me to argue the pricing point but if you are comparing CMT to my prices then yes, you are right that I can not compete. My CMT for half canvas is $2000 HKD so of course if you have a connection to buy Loro Piana fabric at COST then yes I agree it would be way cheaper. But this argument can be made against anyone in any business?
