Huh?

This thread is for sales people to make sales of their products and services to foreigners visiting HK. This is how they run their business. There is no point to interrupt their business, they are just making a living. That's all.
 
They cannot survive in the local market. That's why you see a few sales people pretending as consumers dropping notes periodically. Their products and services are out market for local consumers. This thread is NOT for HK local consumers. Local consumers see that very well, we go someplace else.

Don't panic. I am not interrupting business of those sales people here. Travelers coming to HK want to spend their time efficiently. They spend more to save time and effort. That’s why they go tailor shops or deal with sales people here. There is nothing wrong with it. In economic term, this is an HK export business. Keep going, work hard, and good reward to those sales people here.

 

Everyone sees sales people here are providing very limited choices and limited stories for consumers in this thread. For local consumers, we have sufficient resources to look for more suitable fabrics and tailors at lower cost. We choose to bypass the middlemen. This is consumer rights. We go someplace else. It's that simple.

If you want to properly debate prices, construction quality, value for money, fits/looks etc that's fine. But please leave ad hominen attacks and snide insinuations out of this thread.

huh? There is no hominem attack or snide insinuation against anyone. Travelers coming to HK should go tailor shops or deal with sales people (middlemen). This is the wise choice, all in one place. They spend more to save time and effort. What else do you suggest for travelers? I would not suggest travelers to shop for fabrics and tailors (middlemen) in different places. This is too confusing. But for local consumers, that's another story.

The remarks are not directed at you specifically.

There have been a cluster of newly registered and re-registered 'members'.

Let's concentrate on this thread. I am considering either VBC wool or Scabal wool for my next CMT suit. If both are at the same price level and have the same weight, does it mean they are at similiar grade level?

 

My next question. I wonder why there is no discussion about summer suit. Both cotton and linen are good for the summer.

with due respect, it's a bit late to talk about summer jacket i guess, i already got it done before the summer, as you can see from other shops such as nmwa, they are now holding the pre-order for the fall/winter.

Haven't been here for a while, things seem to have changed.

Please do not be over-excited and tell everything you knew to everyone.

It is plain annoying and silly.

Anyway I will like to share my recent odd jacket combo. Jacket is Zegna "Crossply" Wool/Linen/Silk 260g, Trousers same fabric 240g, made by GT as usual.

Tie is from Vanda Fine Clothing.

For HK weather, I just feel summer before Novermber every year.

For me, wool of 260grams - 280 grams is good for all seasons suit, 310 grams is good for the winter, 240 grams is good the the summer.

@add911_11, nice to see the clothes in your palace, what shirt did you wear with that combo?

BTW I was at the DOJ/ High court the other day, and was half wondering if I'd bump into you.
