Great to know this
Too bad I just missed the b& trunk show last week
RJ is coming next month so I'll definitely catch them
I've had many interactions with Gordon Yao over the past several years, and I have had the exact opposite experience with him. He's been fantastic to work with and definitely takes pride in his products. He's gone above and beyond numerous times for me.
Nicely executed, looks like Tailor Lai has nailed down your pattern better each time.
Okuyama do trunk in HK too?
Nice stuff @add911_11 - is that a 9/10 oz fresco? Am taking some 7/8 oz fresco to Lai soon to make a second pair of trousers for a recent GY suit where I probably specified poorly - (looking for a lower rise, no cuffs, no break, more taper... oh and I've lost a little weight already in the 6 weeks since taking delivery.
It does seem very difficult to get good trouser lines when working with Fresco, particularly the lighter weight version. It bags quite easily and the drape is problematic.
Planning to give Lai some linen for trousering at the same time and some navy worsted twill for a blazer so hopefully we'll get closer to a good fit in time for rounds 2 and 3...
Lai defaults to quite a thin and sharp shoulder for his house style, no? I've been wondering whether with my wide shoulders and burly frame whether a strong, maybe even slightly extended, shoulder might make my proportions better/less bad.
