Almost forgot this...

I recently had made an order with WW Chan last weekend.

Are people generally interested for me to take some pictures in regard to my experience?

As per my usual taste, I specifically ask Arnold and his colleagues to make me a very firm shoulder and old school vibe cut.

Just for joke, it is priceless to see that young gent, while taking my order and specification, was foo.gif when I told him that "ensure you put more shoulder padding and roping then your instructions photo album"

Just for record, I have chosen the new Dugdale mohair bunch, dark grey in 10 1/2 oz, three piece, 3b SB coat with fishmouth lapel, 3 button horse-shape wasitcoat and double pleated real straight cut trousers.

Looking back though I see that add911_11 has used them so that gives me some confidence although it would still be better to look at some of his work. it would be good to see a full set of images, front side, back wearing coat, same without the coat to see how his trousers look and also that neglected aspect of suits, the interior of the coats showing the pockets and the felling of the lining around the arm holes.

You know that I am flattered GBR shog[1].gif

thank you for your confidence.

In gist, they are very good value for money, most of the bells and dings are included. I think they are equally good then the other tailor shop I frequently uses.

Hi guys I am very new here

I am currently ordering a shirt from Ascot Chang (in Elements)

I feel like there's something really wrong about the collar, and perhaps the sleeves are too big too. What do you guys think? I need everyone's input on this. Thanks a bunch smile.gif

I read hear Gordon Yao was making suits for them years ago.

They bought a suit maker years ago and now they are making their own suits. AC suits look very nice but they start a t$2000 USD.

looking at a short (6 day) HK trip later in the year. am i right in presuming that this is not long enough for a suit, but is doable for shirts? how much time is needed for a suit?

Care to show some pics?

 

Your CMT order was shirts or trousers?

post #2636 of 3700
You asked about suits/trousers. I've done two blazers CMT, and have done shirts CMT and with their fabric choices as well. Will post some pics later

Collar is too small ..... and the front part is too small.... seems to have problems on the sleeves too, can't see well because u don't raise up ur arm

Can someone recommend a good alterations tailor? Preferably on HK Island and can deal with an Anglophone customer. Need suit jacket sleeves shortened 0.25-0.5 inches so shirt cuffs become visible.

 @add911_11 , wow did you lost some weigh, or this cut is less slim / more drape cut / more box-ise ? 

 

Always has this impression Tailor Lai's cut makes one look slim....maybe just from the few that I saw here

haha I think i have grown a size in the last 2 years actually...

This is special because I specifically ask Lai to make a voluminous cut (think of Sexton)...
