No, it's an interesting stylistic choice. I don't like the button tab that has to go through the loop though, it gets fiddly.

+1 on the "no rear left pocket"  :fonz:

]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.

Very nice work Fishball.

I notice is that the side taps has a relatively short pulling slide. Do you find them better in long or short?

My tailor seems to change side taps length all the time :-P

How does the fabric made up?

I like it short, when they are long, and you pull them as you need to, they will be toooooo long.

Actually my trousersmaker has same problem

The fabrics made up ok, but the hand is not too smooth, I like my LP Tasmanian more. But can't complain, it is real cheap!

Why? Surely the choice is two or none?

Hi GBR,  the reason I like single pocket on the right side is for easy access to the right hand tap mtr reader.  
Been trying the look of one pocket on a number of my trousers now and I feel its visually sleeker, alike using side adjusters instead of belt/loops.  maybe im just getting bored :satisfied:

I like the loop as a little detail mwink[1].gif

Beside the jacket that is making now, I plan to make another 3 pieces suit and my boss want to make a tux.

Having seen some photo of Ng sifu here, is there any way to contact him?

Can Ng sifu make tux?

Never heard a tailor who can't make tuxedo.
post #3418 of 3688

My boss is an expat who just come to HK to take up this new post early this year.

Since it's my boss who wants to make the tux, I have to be 120% careful in recommending tailor to him.

 

Seems that Ng sifu is working with a partner but the shop is not a formal tailor shop, can Ng sifu provide onsite fitting service? I'm afraid my boss may not be willing to go to some area that he is not familiar with...

How much is your boss willing to spend?

You know, bosses will never tell you the answer straightly, I must propose several options to him and let him choose.

He will deliver speech in annual dinner coming x'mas, so a tux that help him look great is important and becomes my KPI.
