I would not go to Western market to buy suit cloth.  

On the otherhand, tweed or heavy weight fabric search is often fun in Western Market.

I was not aware that is still the case.  Thanks for update.

Has anyone ever had a double breasted suit made at Peter Lee? DB is a lot harder to execute well than SB, particularly in the shaping of the lapels, and so I'd appreciate some examples of his work. Alternatively, which HK tailor would be able to produce a decent rendition of the Anderson and Sheppard/Prince Charles classical English style?

I must have a look, I have not noticed, which stall?

There is no best tailors, only ones that suits your need the most.

So I think one should always go and check out themselves rather than asking all kinds of useless questions.
I agree. However I have seen some Napoli tailoring (Liverano, Solito, NSM) and do not impress me on the needle work.

On the other hand, Camps De Luca is turly impressive.

Absolutely right: You cannot rank Henry Poole, Stephen Hitchcock or Anderson and Sheppard other than as equals, yet their coats let alone trousers are very different: Poole has a very structured style owing a great deal to their military background yet Hitchcock and A&S offer a very soft style.

You must choose which approach you prefer; the finished products will be equally as good.

I had a DB linen suit made, in fact my first HK bespoke. It's a bit slouchy and relaxed and so probably not would be to your taste, but I like it.

Peter Lee's cutting is good.

I have been seeing a lot of props for Lai Sifu's work but cant, for the life of me, find where his workshop is in this thread. Is anyone able to tell me how I can visit him as well as what his prices are? 

 

Thanks!

It look pretty good, but IMHO, the belt should be an inch higher.
And btw, you gain some weight recently ;P

Haha yes I just notice the belt issue.

In respect of weight, I want to cry.

@add911_11: not a fan of the look, but it's well executed and I commend you for your sartorial adventures bigstar[1].gif

Will you try other top Hong Kong Tailors such as H Baramon, Gordon Yao and AMHC in near future ?
