Generally a decent one should be able to.

There's a Merino wool one, at Aran Sweater Market. Made in Ireland, and it'll set you back less than $100. http://www.aransweatermarket.com/gents-knitwear/gents-sweaters/merino-wool-turtleneck-sweater
And the National Geographic store, of all places, has a nice looking men's Irish Aran turtleneck (pictured below), for about $150. http://shop.nationalgeographic.com/ngs/product/clothing/men%27s-clothing/sweaters/men%27s-irish-aran-turtleneck-sweater
Both are available in a variety of sizes and colors.

Looking for some chukka boots that are $300 or less. I tried on the Alden unlined chukkas and they were fantastic. Very comfortable, great suede quality, and most importantly, they looked sleek. Chukkas tend to have these bulbous toe boxes and these Alden's did not; they were great. Unfortunately I'm not willing to spend $460+tax on chukkas, so if anyone could recommend something high quality that might be equivalent that would be great.

Hi Guys,

 

I will be making my first WW Chan suit come 8 Jan 2013 when I have a layover in HK for 10 hours.

I called in to check if a single fitting was sufficient and they were confident enough to assure me that it was so.

They also advised that an appointment could be made during their US tour stop in Chicago if anything was unsatisfactory.

 

I am 21 years young and entirely new to bespoke clothing. The suit will mainly be worn to bi-weekly/weekly business faculty meetings at my college.

I think I will be going for an understated and simple navy blue. Was wondering if anyone who bought a suit with them recently could chime in on the cloths they carry which represent better value (since they dont do CMT)? Any other advice is also appreciated! Thank you.

A quick question about a tailoring mishap:  I asked for shortened sleeves on a dress shirt.  Instead of moving the entire cuff/gauntlet upward, my tailor simply moved the cuff upward.  Now the gauntlet button and cuff button are uncomfortably close.  How much of an issue is this?  Any ideas for solutions?  Otherwise, it's a very nice shirt.

stgrim -

Not sure why you'd want to pay for a bespoke suit without getting the full benefit of the process - i.e. at least one fitting (your first visit is not a fitting - there is no garment to fit yet. You'll just have your measurements taken and pick a cloth). They're not miracle workers - the suit they send you with no fittings will not be as good as the suit they send you after one or more. Especially as you are a new customer (mind you, at 21 your body might well carry on changing for another year or two, so I guess it doesn't matter too much).
I would advise being in less of a rush - get measured while you're in HK, have a fitting when they come to Chicago, and all being well, they will send you the finished suit shortly after that.
Also this forum may give the impression that it's usual for clients to supply their own cloth, but it's not.

No. Tote bags look funny on men.

Unless you are a hipster, or grocery shopping. Or both.

Loake Kempton or Pimlico? Charles Tyrwhitt also sells a rebadged Loake in wide sizes.
