post #3106 of 3698


Thanks. Any other ideas if I was willing to go to a higher price tag?

 

Also, I saw several pictures I liked (on this thread) of the work done by Lai Sifu. I tried to find his contact on Internet, but I have not succeeded so far. I would be great if someone could help.

I believe that tailor, Lai Sifu, moved to China.

Do you live in HK? If you do, visit as many tailors as you can and see what they can do.

Yes I do live in HK.

 

In my experience, there is a huge difference between what the Tailors tell you "they can do" and what they actually deliver.

 

Too expensive for me to "try" many and spend X  * 9 or 10k for something that I will not wear even once if I dont like the result.

What I meant was, bring a picture or a suit jacket and show them what you like and ask to see some samples.

Indeed I saw a couple of pictures of a suit made by Grand Tailor with very nice pagoda shoulder. Based on what I read on SF, it seems that Gordon Yao can do it as well.

 

For those who have tried both, which one is more likely to build a modern slim waist jacket?

Gordon Yao price maybe out of your budget. Highly than Grand Tailor 。

@NicoHK can you show us example pics of the bespoke that you got from AC and others vs the RTW from GH and corneliani?

Ascot Chang Suit with VBC Super 110 was 13k HKD 2 years ago, so I would have assumed Gordon Yao to not be over that price tag.

 

@cchen, I will try to take few pictures shortly.

My experience with WW Chan is on the contrary, I also tried to make a "standard strong shoulder" suit to no avail. At the end, the suit gets little to no use.

As far as the quote above, I am pretty sure Gordan Yao will charges pretty much the same as Ascot Chan Bespoke.

Have a look in the shops as mentioned by members here will be useful.

Thanks add911_11.

 

I read a lot of your posts on this thread, all very useful.

 

Did you have personal experience with Gordon Yao? I would like to be sure they have been successful in executing that style of shoulder (before I spend that kind of money).

post #3118 of 3698

@cchen,

 

Here are few pictures.

 

Il Sarto dark navy suit - cloth by Reda, almost what I was looking for but slightly too much tight on the waist, and the shoulders are not clean enough.

 

 

 

Then Gieves & Hawkes OTR Summer Jaket - Fabric is Summer Linen Tweed by Loro Piana.

No Alterations, and probably the jacket I have that fits the best:

Corneliani OTR Winter Sport Coat with attached inner clothe. less fitted, but on purpose to leave more space to wear pullover underneath, if needed.

Shoulders are clean as well:

 

 

 

Ascot Chang disaster - Summer fabric by VBC

I dont like the shoulders, I dont like the line/waist. Something is off, I was just not able to explain them what was wrong at the time.

I have learned since I ordered, and probably did not ask properly what I was looking for. But I won't go anymore:

From the back, the il Sarto sleevehead/ shoulders look terrible.
