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?

 

I did not specifically ask VBC so I do not know.   They have TM and other branded shirt fabrics.    They usually answer Emails promptly so I appreciate if you can ask them and share the info here.

Anyone have recommendations on a place for a cotton/linen suit?

Just asked GY about pricing and it's 1880USD for Holland and Sherry cotton or linen (starting), which is above my price range.

Thanks.

I don't know where you can get H&S online. There are other options for cottons and linens, Harrisons have a great bunch with linen and cottons called Mersolair and W Bill linen is first rate.

For fuss-free click and ship, check out the linens found here -- http://www.huddersfieldcloth.com/

They hold their own, and are reasonably priced.

Hello all,

 

I am looking to have a tailor make copies of some trousers and a jacket I have. I would love to just have them made Bespoke locally but for the time being I cannot meet the prices. I know that a quality fit is of the utmost importance, and that any price is worth the right fit, but I am hoping to cut down on my costs a bit.

 

I would want to start with one pair of Trousers and one sportcoat. From there I would expand based on the results. All pieces would be CMT as I have the cloth already to be shipped.
 

Not sure if this is the right place to post, if not please direct this newbie to the right place. Any suggestions, experiences, and or recommended tailors contacts would be great.

 

Thank you,

 

David-

If you're looking at HK tailors the costs could add up quickly as you would have to pay for shipping both ways.

Good point, I am hoping that It won't be more than 8% overall. I would need to pay that in tax here in NY, but shipping did not enter my equation, thank you.

Has anyone experiences with Vaswani Tailor (www.vaswani.net) ? I couldn't find any posts on this tailor.

I don't think so considering that there are merely a couple of HK suit-tailors being discussed in these forums. Thereof the majority posts regarding WW Chan.

 

I am sure that HK has many tailors of different quality levels. But most of ppl here will never really have an in-deep knowledge of the HK tailoring industry (naturally when you don't spend a considerable time there).

 

What i know of Vaswani is, that they do full canvass MTM and bespoke. Although I have to say i never saw a suit..

I don't think I can trust a tailor without shopfront or at lease workshop address.
At their website, it shown that their suit is fully fused.
