Actually I had collected the Chan suit and it is now used as my office beater for fridays where I can get change to shorts and T-shirt after work.
In general, Chan suit seems to be very neatly made, the handwork seems to be refined. However, the cut of the jacket is very medicore, the pattern are poorly adjusted, resulting an overall soft-classic round look but with over short coat lengths.
Another matter is I find the coat to be too light, so light that the product when touched feels like a high end RTW making. You cannot feel the juicy parts where bespoke tailors will put inside the coat (e.g. touching a Savile Row coat nowdays you will realize how much "SXXX" a tailor puts inside for the drape", this is no existence in Chan's coat.
Although it may be fault on my part, the pattern I choose "3-button" did not warrent the cutter to cut with some consideration into it. There is no belly on the lapel and the lapel roll was made a touch too high. Thereby making a flat and uninterested looking shape, even if the lapel roll itself is here.
If they want me to return again, at least they have to get my lengths right, secondly is they have to improve their cut rather than using a academic proportion without any adjustment.
Note: given how thin the coat seams are, I have suspicion that the coat is cut by lazer and not by hand.Edited by add911_11 - 10/17/15 at 8:56pm
