Once Peter has your pattern down, you can easily place follow-up orders. You can either send him fabric or ask him for swatches. I've done this before and not been disappointed.

Great to know u have good time with Peter Lee. Actually I have also made a deposite with him and going to start make a 2 piece suit with him.

I around 10 shirts from AC and buy suit from TCNY (I also have a entry level black suit and my wedding tux made by AC). For shirt, I think AC really is the best in town just it is a bit pricy.

For suit, I am going to give Peter Lee a try since many SF member "Like" the service and craftmanship. But since this is the fist time dealing with Peter, I told them I will bring one of my suit over for modeling and make sure nothing goes wrong.

Looking for a 'modern classic' tailor...


I am looking to make a number of tuxes for groomsmen and was looking around the $200 budget. Anyone know of anything half decent?

 

Not lasting for more than a few years is more than acceptable since it's really just for a wedding.

I think the fabric may cost that much on its own.

At that price I'd honestly try Joseph A. Banks. I ended up doing that with seersucker suits for my groomsmen.

Problem is the groomsmen are from Hong Kong.

Has anyone used a tailor in Shenzen by the name of Adah/Ada?

 

In the main centre i believe, cheaper suits but still holds a high quality...

 

thanks

No but the other thread seems to indicate you should try Wang in Hong Kong.

I have used tailor in SZ before and my advice is don't go. However, since you have budget constrain, I think SZ is not a bad choice but rememebr to avoid those tailor inside the SZ train station building.

The train station is an adventure all in itself

Yes. And if you don't have someone to take you there, it is really note recommended since it is like a maze inside.

How did your final product turn out?  I'll be in HK on Thursday and plan to stop by Peter Lee then.
