post #676 of 1812

is it? I have no idea, pretty new to this stuff. But those are the features that I want. But GY is a bit expensive, are there cheaper ones that can also do these?

US$1,000 for CMT with GY is a good price considering he is one of the top tailors in HK.
Simpson Sin (US$650) as per dragon8 suggestions may be another option, from what I gather he's quite good as well.

Be mindful that good tailors understand their strengths and weaknesses. They would not want to deviate from their in-house style too much.

GY used to be $720 for CMT. Its still a good option but depends how much you can source the cloth for.

This $720 was probably eons ago given it was already around the $1000 region 2 years ago?

I never asked if they could or not but I assume they could.

If I remember correctly, shirts begin at $90 and TM about $130 or so.

+1! Thanks for your information. Do you have any pictures of recent purchases from them?

Also, does anyone have any experience regarding E.Italian or Il Sarto?

I made a post about Il Sarto with pics not so long ago. 

 

I asked to reduce the padding to make it natural shoulder, which they could do, but their way of attaching shoulder is with a slight bump at the shoulder ( I do not know the term for that).  I do not know if they can do make it more bump less.

oh, yes, thanks for pointing that out. do you know how much they are for a fully canvassed VBC, and for TM or other branded shirts?
