Did you read this post by Old ten hours before? He explained very clearly and ask this to stop.

Thanks for sharing your experience and information here. Please ignore the one who is keeping on ruining this thread without really contributing.

Yet must ensure contributing by correct information.
Though I am a layman in tailoring, common sense tells me that any sifu can hardly make a living if it takes him 10 hours to stitch the canvas and fix the collar for a jacket.

Depends on the charge of CMT, many of the stitching are done by old ladies or tailors' wife. Normal stitching needs no high skill. In HK workshop , several ladies stitch the canvass and sifu pay as low as HK$300. per jacket (approx. $50 per hour) Other parts requires high skill such as lapel, collar, shoulders and sleeves are normally done by sifu level.

Car,

Please read what you said.
Yesterday, it needs 10 hours of high skill
Today, needs no high skill, at lease 6 out of the 10 hours, hahaha.

Still saying it need 6 hrs to finish! facepalm.gif
I asked few tailors in Central, all laugh when I told them someone said in the forum that "handstitch base canvas" need 6 hrs to complete! worship.gif

You try to present yourself as a "well knowledge guy" by picking people's words and stepping down others. I highly doubt you know more than a young guy like add911.

I am not challenge people on words, I am just challenging you don't have real "knowledge" on the topic you said.
I don't step on people.
I've been here for a long time, I am very confident that people know that I am not.

I don't know am I more knowledgeable than add911, but is that matter?
Many pals in this forum are more knowledeable than me for sure, but I doubt are you the one! mwink[1].gif

Fish,

You did not read carefully of what I say. "Depend on CMT charge". Do you know amount of aton pay for CMT? If Baramon or other similar level CMT charge, the canvass may do by a sifu.

Maybe there is some misunderstanding here, I asked several sifu before including who works for A-Man, Baramon, Lao Hop Hing and William Yu, they all said it takes over 6 hours to finish back structure for the front part of the jacket.

I doubt you are more knowledgable than me too. I have confidence for that.

Isn't it to time to call off for this heated discussion ? Both of you guys are far more knowledgeable than I am and I respect both of you guys. It looks to me the discussion is deviating from the common I intersects of the thread participants.

You guys are comparing dick lengths on a public forum in a language you are not fluent in. Just calm down and think about that for a minute.

I agree it is better to concentrate on the original topic rather than further debating..

I visited them last year.
The idea is good, however, I don't think their craftmanship is up to par. They are at the "low end" of the HK tailoring market, the technque they are using is cantonese factory model, you can find this kinds of workshops charging much less in TST.
The tailors there also don't want to do what the customer asked, they are just comfortable to do what they are doing.
Of course, it is only my point of view:fence:

Go to take a snap of the under lapel of the suit made by Bonham Strand, then we can talk.lurker[1].gif
