the pants really ruin it
Agreed that the trousers seem close to 2 inches too long. If you like that much break so be it, but it does take away from the elegance a bit. I was just thinking that the wrinkling in the back of your arms is likely partly to do with the fabric which you confirmed. I would try and use Fresco next time if you'd like something lightweight that doesn't wrinkle much.
On a second look, the coat seems long in the last pic.
I like a full break, but this seems even a bit much for me. Other than that, a few points to consider going forward:
- add some waist suppression;
- lowering buttoning point;
- clean up the back, both center and sides.
Good basis to work from though for your second commission with him.
Thanks everyone for the advise! Really appreciate all the inputs!
I will bring these points forward to Peter the next time I see him in May or June.
Now that I'm back in Aussieland, I'm on a hunt for an ultimate white cotton shirt....recommendations anyone? Looking for a white Sea Island Cotton with an ivory sheen....not sure which tailor carries them in Sydney. I know Gordan Yao from HK is on a tour to Sydney & Melbourne in Feb.
Has anyone commissioned a shirt with them?
Is it comfortable? The pants look a bit long though.
It's very comfy! Peter made sure of that. Fabric wise, it's light & I've asked for Bemberg lining to ensure that the jacket is breathable & durable...
Can I ask how much the suit cost?
CMT is between HKD 4,000 to 5,000 range (+/-)
I swear, I must have seen you there. I got a sportcoat made there at around the same time.
Hmm....I didn't remember seeing someone trying out a sportcoat. But then again, there were juz so many pple each time I went for fitting. I remember chatting with someone from Canada who commissioned a trenchcoat with Peter.
So how did your sportcoat turn out GBear?
I liked him. Only came for 2 fittings, the basted and the final. I don't think I really needed much more than that. Though next time, I think I want a little higher armholes.
Final product, bad pictures.
That look Awesome!!
What fabric did u use?
That is one of the nicest coats I have seen. great choice of fabric. What did it end up costing in the end?
I chose the blue donegal they had. I thought it looked much better than the grey.
Mine was only half canvas so it was 2,800HKD, IIRC.
