Do you have a preference between Yao and Chan?

Should be spectacular and the epitome of the grey flanel suit

February delivery with pics to follow thereafter

Sounds nice, don't forget to post pics when you get it.

What material did you decide to use? I think the Barathea by Scabal feels nicer than the H&S version. I have a DB in the works right now and thinking of a tux next. Are you getting a vest too?

Doing some research on tailors before my holiday trip to Hong Kong landed me on this site last year. Decided on WW Chan after some lurking and came back with 1 suit (2B SB peak lapel VBC super 130s) and 1 shirt.

Haven't had many chances to wear them, but the more I read and see critique posts on this site, the happier and happier I get about the good job Patrick did on the fit of the jacket. It's almost perfect first time around, with 2 fittings, start to finish in about 5 days (in between Christmas and New Years!). All hail the Chan

How much better is Chan vs. Mr. Ned? If you're in NYC wouldn't it be better to choose someone locally like Mr. Ned? Not to mention Mr. Ned is cheaper.

Don't have a convenient way to take pics right now, and will be out of town for a week, but I will post when I get a chance.

What's the starting price range for a 2-piece suit (let's say wool) at Chan?

~$1,100 give or take but they do occasionally have deals on specific fabrics
