    My suit from HK is practically identical. The tailor is "New Hong Kong Custom Tailor." They have locations in Peninsula Center and (I think) Houston Center in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon. I dealt with Alex.

    Are we talking about the same guy? Odds are no but the suits are eerily similar.

    edit: I just saw your old post. I thought it was a custom suit. Could very well still be the same tailoring house, though.

    Also, after a LOT of bargaining, my suit cost about $2500 HKD

    Nope, different guy. This shop is in Central, very boutique-esque. Their stuff is very Italian, Neapolitan-esque suits, shirts with big spread collars, really wide ties, etc. These suits I bought off the rack, but fit quite-well (very high armhole), they were HKD2500 each and I got additional HKD500 off for a purchse of two during the promotion. The normal full retail price is HKD$2750 if I remembered correctly. Their MTM starts at HKD6000, again if I remember correctly. The store carries mostly 48R (my size, ha!) with a few 46R and maybe one or two 50Rs. The 48R jacket is going to be short if you are taller than 6'1'' for sure. I'll ask them if they are willing to do overseas individual mail order next time I go.

    Strictly speaking they are all cascading, but the buttons are sewn on very loosely and the is ready to be converted to working buttons, I just never got around to getting the button holes cut yet since I love wearing them so much, ha.
