The basted fitting for E-Italian took 20 mins and Edward do the fitting, as for William Yu  ( NOT Y William Yu ) took 45 mins and three people took the pinning, consider William Yu's suit is 50% more expensive than E-Italian. The attached photo is from William Yu.

1000

No offence, but did you need to start another HK tailor thread for this?

The fabric is Scabal Blue Label Super 130,  W.W. Chan 's price is HK $17,000,  A-Man is HK $15,000,  I am paying HK $11,000. Hope it turns out as good as WW Chan and A-Man

Please keep us updated here on the progress. Is A-man really cheaper than WW Chan nowadays?

Which will prove very little or even nothing as you will not have measured the hand work in either option.

I thought A-Man's custom tailor was Gordon Yao. Is this still true?

Huh? Never heard this before...are you saying that A-man farms out his work to Gordon Yao?

Never knew that. I knew Ascot Chang at a time used Yao as their tailor.

I checked some background of William Yu, it turns out they used to be in Peninsula Hotel for over 30 years, the name William Yu was part of the old red gang, if their quality is close or near A-Man and W.W. Chan, I think is a good deal, will see and wait for the final product to confirm.
