post #3331 of 3697

Finally got my 2-piece suit from Michael, fresco 555, hope it will be the first of many to come. Sorry for the photo quality as it's taken by my iphone and also for my posture as i didn't stand upright, therefore the lower button seems is not set in the middle of my body. I like the way and craftsmanship of how they handle the shoulder, my tribute to Ng sifu and Michael. For sure I will let Michael to handle my linen/silk cloth from Dieworkwear......

Full canvassed ? Price ? Time needed?

Are the trousers not a (big) tad short?
post #3335 of 3697

It doesn't look like the cuff was done on a military/slanted hem? Looks perpendicular to the leg?

The length is done exactly according to my request

Given that, then, they did a pretty nice job.

put it this way, i can find some shortcoming or flaw for the suit and I already found them, however, so far none of these are critical, or simple say, just some very minor issues, i.e. the upper button of the fly is set a bit too close to the waistband and takes me 2 or 3 more seconds to fasten...etc

Hi guys - might head up to Shenzhen for a short trip - any good recommendations for shirtmakers there? Tried one in Shanghai fabric markets before and they made decent copies of shirts for 180rmb - was hoping for something similar in quality and price in SZ, otherwise I will stick to Shanghai or HK. Thanks.

You won't be able to find any good shirtmaker in Shenzhen although most HK tailor shops has been outsourcing their shirt marking process there. You should visit "The Firenze" or "Spear & Horse" if you look for good tailor shop in SZ.
