post #3196 of 3688

Very informative. Now I am regretting postponing my visit. Buttonholes look to have some heft to them which seems nice.

Does he offer roll lapel on waistcoat? I am having some trouble finding a good tailor that does it.

Great report @klp2332,

 

Vest and jacket looks okay but really from the picture you posted the trouser need some alternation. Bring them back to the shop for a fix. 

 

May I ask if the jacket and waistcoat are full canvass ?

@klp2332, Ng sifu is capable of much better, which is why you owe it to him and yourself to let him fix it, particularly since you have written such a detailed post.

Very interesting and helpful

hi guys, anyone has good recommendations for shirts in HK? Seen some reviews on Jantzen saying its decent but poor customer service etc. Targetting budget around 3 for ~1.3k

If you are in HK and can speak Cantonese, Janzten will be ok.

Average usd55 per custom made shirt, how decent of the fabric can you get ?

@zackyh, it's been a while since I've been to Janzten. I've tried LeeBaron and Sun May (cheaper but perhaps not as nice); my current shirtmaker takes ages.

Thank you for all of your comments on my review. I very much enjoyed writing it and it acted as an excellent past time.

 

Most of the comments pertained to the trousers. And, I agree that the trousers (especially, the back) is a bit of a mess (I tried to convey this modestly in my post by alluding it as the area that needs 'most improvement'). As such, Ng sifu definitely did not do an ideal job on this pair; though, to be fair, my legs are quite athletic, and idiosyncratically thick in the upper thighs -- in fact, good fitting trousers has often a problem for me. Nonetheless, the onus is on the tailor. However, Michael and Ng sifu have kindly agreed to take another look at the trousers, hopefully they can be much improved. So, I hope to report back soon.

 

Now, very briefly: as for the length of the jacket, I reckon it is on the shorter side but, I think, still very much within 'standard' range (if there is such a thing). And, where it lies within this range is solely to do with preference. Perhaps, to be more in line with my age and the proportion between my upper and lower body, I usually prefer a shorter jacket. Similarly, the jacket is indeed on the tighter side, but again it is a matter of preference. I hope my tastes do not appear atrociously misguided to you.

 

Thanks!

Both tailor (Ng sifu and Michael) should not have let you walk out with that trousers.......

 

If you never posted online, would they "offer" to fix it ???????

Yes, the onus was certainly on them.

 

Also, in response to your previous question (sorry I forgot to answer), the jacket is full canvas and it is also a canvas vest. I hope that helps.
