    May I ask who made those trousers? Flusser?

    Which reminds me, also consider if you would like the trousers lined.

    Spano.

    Yes, I'd like them lined, but not sure how far down.

    I would suggest visiting a few tailors your first day in Hong Kong. Tailors have house styles because that is what they are comfortable doing and know how to do best. Trying to deviate too much may not get you the best results.

    I was in Hong Kong a few months ago and before I went I did a little research and planned on going to Chan, A Man and Jantzen. I wear a 44L OTR with almost no alterations but wanted higher rise trousers and a properly fitted vest with a suit.

    At Jantzen I first ordered a couple of shirts to check measurements and then ordered 8 more. I also got a pair of trousers and odd vest. Price made me try the vest and trousers. For the little I paid, I was pleased and will have them make a few more pairs of trousers next time I am there. Not the best trousers but very good value for everyday wear. Next time I will also supply my own fabric.

    I went to A Man since I was looking for a British cut suit. I was happy with examples I saw. While there a couple of patrons were being fitted for suits and I had a chance to speak with them about A Man and other tailors they had used. I decided to order the suit and am pleased I did. While the vest from Jantzen fit well, the vest from A Man was in another league. The price was commiserate with the fit.

    I never made it over to Chan's since I had already found everthing I needed.

    How do A-Man's prices compare with Chan's? If the price was right I'd do a vest at Jantzen, but I'm saving my suiting for that "other" league.

    Any collective comments on the style notations thus far?
