Yes, I wanted them in a different Asian location but they want to run the show completely on their own terms which is a fair stance. But I respect the decision and would have also respected not opening any location outside of Paris. I favor exclusivity, actually, not for snobbish reasons but just because at some point it comes upon the slippery slope. As long as they keep their standards, everything is fine.
I am not familiar with so many English tailors but enough people(on SF and elsewhere) seem to be of the opinion that much of the finishing is a bit short of what one might expect. Perhaps many are taking shortcuts? I do not know. I have seen some suits from English tailors that look great. Some, not so much but that is for anywhere if you take enough houses into account.
I think Cifo and CdL pop in their detail for the most part. The styling is what is is, maybe you like it, maybe not.
You should hop on the Eurostar and make a day of it.
I'll be in Paris soon for a bit, myself.
