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.



Another fine combination. demonstrating exquisite taste.

I'm not made of money, my job requires a decent suit but I'm not exactly swimming in cash. i.e. not really financially comfortable enough to be trying out multiple tailors, so I'm trying to get as much information as I can before I decide on which one. Like I said, previously I only owned a couple of $200-400 off the rack suits. This would be my first real tailored suit so excuse me if I'm trying to get as much information as I can before I take the plunge.

I used the search function already and didn't really find anything on Roger, so I'm asking to see if there might be anyone who has tried Roger in the past but never posted about it for whatever reason. Isn't that what this thread is for? So sorry if this thread is meant only for people who get tailored suits on a frequent and regular basis. I'd post a new thread, but people seem to sneer at all the new HK tailor related threads as well.

Why not consider half canvas? Price will be around hk$4k for 2 pc with decent English / Italian workhorse fabric .

Why not try one and report here ?


@hifi.  It does not sound fair you say that to him.

Very little talk of Dream Bespoke here lately anymore, is there a reason to this? I was going to have a few things more made with them.

Had a suit made from them 7-8 years ago.
Cutting was not bad
But they only make fused jackets which i do not like.

Price is cheap ???

The fabric I choose is specific for trousers. Until now I think it held up very well, certainly durable enough for common office wear. In particular it holds up the crease very well and easy to iron.

The weight is 240gms.

My tailor actually recommend me to use the same trouser fabric for a jacket thus making a suit out form it.

Just got my odd trousers from my tailor, the CMT cost is going up and up! I miss the good old days!

The fabrics was from Harrison Cru Classe, bin end sale, i got two pants length for HK$500 or ~USD65! So US$32 for a pair of pants. The total make up cost for the pants is USD140.
