post #1966 of 3693

I personally prefer Dream and I think the price increase is worth it. I've been very happy with my Dream results. Everything after my first 2 pieces which were slightly too tight, were perfect, preferably to my Chan, though probably it was because I knew less about what I wanted when I dealt with Chan. The Moda tweed jacket is fine, but it doesn't feel perfect or molded to me, or personalized.

 

I'll get a picture of the moleskin later today.

BespokeKiwi,

Thanks a lot for your feedback. I agree with your observations, definitely very helpful. In terms of buttoning position/ waist suppression, I have always preferred a slightly lower buttoning position to get a slightly longer lapel. In this case perhaps it has thrown the jacket off balance but thanks again for pointing out. Will take note in future commissions.

Just hoping the sleeve head and crease on vest (wasn't lunch!) can be fixed

How much is a blazer, 2 piece and 3 piece at Dream Bespoke?

@BespokeKiwi. Nice, though the 2 piece gives the impression that the jacket is slightly too small for you.

@chobochobo  I think you may be right about @David1028's 2 piece being a tad snug fitting, appearance wise.  Perhaps, he has put on a little weight since his initial fittings.

Ooops, sorry. I addressed the comment to the wrong person. I was reading on my phone foo.gif

Thanks @isolation, that's great.

How much would a suit be at Dream if I am NOT bringing my own fabric? I'm not quite into fabric enough to do that smile.gif Just rough pricing will do, I know there's all sorts of different fabric out there.

I believe CMT is 3250 for jacket, 950 for any trousers and vests. No discount or change in pricing if you combine them or not.

 

I would guess a 2piece is about 6000 as mentioned. It's not too hard to order your own fabric. If you have an address in HK I highly recommend dugdale. You get tax off anyway so you can ignore the shipping, and I can recommend some of their fabric if you like. The new fine worsted so far has proven to be really good, thin, smart enough, but offers some textural interest.

 

Anyway here's my moleskin with my tweed:

 

 

 

 

 

In general I'm not too happy with the cut but, eh. Oh well. The price is fair.

I have no chance of coming to HK anytime soon, unfortunately. I will check them out along side others. Do they do visits to Europe?
And you would rate them higher than Chan? Isn't Chan roughly 3x the price?
post #1977 of 3693

Yeah they are, I am just talking about my personal experience. Ricky gave me a lot of fittings and trials and was very thorough, with Chan I wasn't able to dictate clearly what I wanted since I was new. I don't doubt if I had gone to Chan now they'd do very well too or probably even better.

 

I know Chan go to Europe, I don't think Dream does, they aren't as well known.

the folks at dream bespoke are nice to deal with.   

 

this is probably a one-off issue but when i made a bulk order (half dozen shits and 2 jackets) with a short timeline, there were some errors on the garments. one shirt had longer sleeves, while one shirt had shorter sleeves. another issue was a missing button on one of my jackets, which i didn't notice until i got back to the hotel. ricky alleviated the situation with haste after emailing him. 

 

as for the shirts, i didn't find out until i returned to the states. 

 

again, not a huge issue for me because DB does great work and the 4 shirts fit perfectly; the longer shirt i can probably modify via local tailor. the shorter sleeve shirt can still be worn and it's still better fitting than anything off-the-rack can offer for my torso.

 

i would say, just cross check your items, especially if you're not from HK.

 

aside from those miscues, it's a great place to visit. ricky is an awsome dude as well.

I had mistakes with Dream's orders too. We ordered in total about 18 or more jackets/suits (don't have them all yet)  and so far he's made the wrong lapel for one suit (the gray 3 piece, wanted peak) and made a jacket normal lining instead of quarter lined. That said I had a large volume and fairly complex orders, and I'd say even with those mistakes I'm super happy with my experience and look forward to getting more stuff made by them. It was good to see Ricky putting a lot of effort to getting it right. On my last day in HK I had to take a flight early afternoon and he came up to my apartment to give us one last fitting with some waistcoats and bring us some of the finished trousers. I'm very impressed by their customer service, very polite and obliging but not in a hard-sell kind of way some other tailors are, who would just say yes to anything, or, instead, advise only stuff they are used to making. Instead Ricky seemed to give good styling opinions even if it meant more work or meant disagreeing with me. Felt to me that he cares about his work.

stop going to ricky, i need my shit done :crackup:

 

in all seriousness though, he does GREAT work; and I agree with iso, top notch service that truly cares about fulfilling the needs of his clients.
