That's exactly why, Gordon shops has most of the English fabrics that people seeks. Plus I believe you don't save much with CMT nowadays.

Disclaimer: I do not use GY, so my pricing is not the most accurate. I believe long time customer will have better price, if they have joined the club early.

For oversea customers, it is best to use the famous names because they are experienced to due with the special needs. Also they can provide fittings during their oversea trips.

I did look at Peter Lee's product but was far from impressed by quality or fit.

I have used PL for a few things - no suits - and no personal experience with GY, but this is what I thought as well (and I think my experience with PL confirms that).

No experience with GY and have used PL few times with good results.

With PL I can testify that it is highly recommended to be clear with the details you want otherwise the end result may deviate from what you're thinking of. IMHO PL quality is mid-tier whilst GY is up there with WW Chan and Baromon. Few years back, before he's swarmed due to SF popularity, his suits were good value (price/quality) nevertheless not so much recently (have been thinking to switch to either TCNY or Baromon) except for his shirts.

Just my two cents, PL shirts are exceptional (value).
