    I would be grateful for any info you have on B&T: shirt & suit quality, and pricing. I travel to Korea every now and then, and I have friends there, and I like the work of B&T that I've seen!

    ^^^Honestly, I think that is very well done. What is the cost if you don't mind? If you do, no worries.
    And material? You look quite sharp. There are a few points I would make to improve but it is possible those were done on purpose(stylistic differences) as opposed to poor execution.

    Anyone been to Savile row in Gwanghamun recently? I was last there a few years ago. Im leaving soon and would like to get some shirts done. I checked the website and its not working anymore. Apart from there and Goshe any other recommendations for decent dress shirts?

    Cheers

    I am getting the suit pants altered here in LA
    I am actually quite disappointed with savile row at this point
    I had two suits made two years ago and both turned out great
    This time I had one suit and two more pants made
    I needed to remeasure and I wanted a different fit
    The jacket is fine, turned out the way I want it
    The pants... all three pairs have some weird issue in the seat of the pants and some in the legs
    The fabric was cut unevenly? Stitching uneven? Just does not look pretty back there
    I don't know if they are using different people to do the sewing or what but it is quite disappointing
    So I am having the suit pants altered to see how it turns out
    If it turns out okay, then altering keeping all
    If not, I'm going to make a stink and ask mr.choe to make them over

    two gray wool pants from savile row
    pinned by my alteration tailor here in LA
    my suit pants were altered first, turned out fine so i'm keeping them and altering the other pants as well
    but i am not happy and i asked that mr.choe give a significant discount on my bro-in-law's suit that is being made there right now
    will report on what happens

    will try to get a full fit pic later

    That's a lot of taking in. Yea, two of my friends that got suits made from SR said the same thing. The jacket fits great, but the pants were too baggy. IMO Hanhs pants are made way better.

    if savile row does not do a good job with my bro-in-law's suit, i'm definitely giving my business to Hahn's next
    i may give them a try anyway

    not the best pics but here's the new suit
    looks almost like a solid navy from a distance
    then looks like a windowpane at medium distance
    and then you can see the glen plaid closer up

    1 3/4" cuffs
    8" leg opening

    ^ Looks good

    Yea the only problem with Hanhs is their strong shoulders.

    I think the shoulder line is fine.

    lol
    so ... should i get my jacket made at savile row and my pants made at Hahn's?
    :slayer:

    actually not the worst idea... although it'd end up costing a little more

    I was talking about a different tailor.



    The idea has crossed my mind many times. Haha.
