I would like to spend less than 1000 USD but am mostly concerned about value. I'm going to be in hk for three months and the suit isn't urgent so I can wait if it'll get me a much better result at a lower price point

USD 1000 may not be enough for W.W. Chan or Gordon Yao.

You'll not get much for that. Might even be better to pass given that is the price of rags.

USD 1000 is definitely not enough for WW Chan or Gordon Yao. 2 years ago, Gordon Yao was charging around USD 1100 just for CMT a 2-piece (and the price should have only gone up).

 

*Probably* still okay in Dream Bespoke or Brown's Tailor - particularly if one buys the cloth and get the tailor to CMT.

 

(Disclaimer: I've done CMT in Brown's Tailor with 1 jacket 2 pants, and in WW Chan for a 2-piece.)

I prefer Dream over Simpson Sin, and their price points are similar. In fact the 3 Simpson Sin suits I've had made I don't wear anymore. Armholes too large, button stance poor. Could just be a more old fashioned styling, but I think they just played it safe with the measurements and didn't care enough.

 

I also use Moda over Jantzen for shirts, and there are a few others were recommended too at similar pricerange. I'm going to assume it's similar, but Jantzen is hard to work with, makes mistakes, and can be rude. I've switched to Moda 2 years ago or so and never went back.

What's the price range for Il Sarto?

+1, these prices sound in the ballpark. When I went to HK last summer I saw that WW Chan suits were starting at $10,000 HKD +

From Fabric to Suit -- a review of Ng Sifu’s CMT.

This is an update to my original review of Ng Sifu's Dormeuil 3pc Navy suit which can be found here. I have taken the two pairs of trousers back to Michael and Ng Sifu as they kindly offered to take an additional look at it. And, I must say that the once weakest point of the 3 pc suit has been much improved. That is, the sides are much better and the drape at the back is very much cleaner. I've attached some of the pictures we took today (I apologise for the mismatched shoes and casual linen shirt -- I wanted to remain comfortable on a hot and casual Sunday).

I commissioned from Gordon Yao a year ago, his starting price was much more than that. I think it was around 1400/1500 for a basic 2-piece in VBC 120s.

Missing a front view but looks much better.
