An Interview with B&Tailor - Page 22

post #316 of 393
Chad Park of BnT posted a pic himself on instagram with John Lee in NYC. Hopefully this means the US MTM program is about to get off the ground.

I wonder if it'll be at all possible to modify an mtm pattern from my bespoke pattern as I doubt I'll be in either NYC or Seoul in the next couple of years :-/

A southwest roundtrip is only about $240

And a decent chunk of time. I'm terrible at working while I travel :-/

But that is a lot cheaper than I thought it would be. That's certainly a possibility at a later date.

Sadly, I missed ordering one by a week. I was up a week and a half ago, and John said the earliest he could pull off measurements would be this week.

Any word on the prices?

Two questions:

 

1. If I visit Seoul, how long would be the minimum to achieve a good number of fittings that will result in a finely tailored suit? I've read in this thread some doing it in 10 days, but it seemed a bit rushed with perhaps 1 or 2 fittings. I have bespoke experience at a "budget" tailor in LA and he only gave me 1 fitting per suit. I can't complain based on the price I paid, but I'm looking at B&Tailor for my next suit and would like a complete bespoke experience to achieve a stellar fit.

 

2. As alluded to above, I own two bespoke suits, one in navy and the other in mid/dark gray. Both fit well (better than 99% of suits I see in day-to-day life), but the one thing that irks me with both suits is the low armhole. I rarely wear suits but would like to have both a solid navy and solid gray for those occasions when a suit is needed. Would you go to B&Tailor to replace the navy and/or gray suit or go with something different to compliment the good-fitting suits you already owned?

I was in Seoul for a month and got fitted the moment I landed.  Even then the process was a bit rushed.

U.S. MTM Update.  Email from John on timing for NYC MTM.

Chad was here for a quick visit to bring me a few things, including the fitting garments.  So, I should be ready to go pretty soon and will be sending an email out regarding when I will be taking appointments and pricing.

Almost time to book a trip to NYC.

^ See you there! (Though I'd like to see more photos and get more details.)

I had my second fitting a few hours ago in Robin Pettersson's workshop
