I was just waiting for that question. Â Actually I love the suit and can't really say I've had any problems with it, so much so that I've bought 3 more from the same firm. Raja Daswani http://www.raja-fashions.com/ from Hong Kong is who I got the suit made from. Both the BBC and CNN ran stories on him and that's how I came about picking him http://www.cnn.com/2002....ex.html http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/2018123.stm His web site as well as some other sites claims he has a clientele of who's who in the political world including Tony Blaire and others. I was a bit skeptical about that at first until my meeting with the guy... as I opened the door to the hotel suite at the Marriot in DC, there in front of me sat a congressman and a senator both getting fitted for suits and shirts. Quite a humbling experience but scary as well. (Politicians aren't exactly known for their style in clothes.) Anyway the price isn't decided until the end and they try to get you to buy more than one suit. I ended up playing the poor college kid act and got it down to about 600 a suit. Not a bad price I thought for a super 150s cashmere/wool blend. The turn around is 3 weeks, decidedly shorter than Chan's. If anyone is interested, I can definitely post more (and better) pictures of my suit as well as the three others I ordered.
