Just email them directly. You speak Korean. Let them know I told you to do so.
I already did.
Wait, who's incontro then?
He's not b&tailor?
No, he's a very close friend who works with them. I believe he spent a couple of years training with them as well. I'll PM you Changwoo's email.
I was just gonna walk into b&tailor and announce that I am the Noodles. Guess that aint gonna work.
I will await the email address.
I want a pattern similar to my wedding suit remade to fit me properly with [email protected]
You can still walk in and announce, "I am The Noodles." In fact, please do. Does it translate well into Korean?
Incontro is their Australian fitter, a real nice guy and from what I've seen on social media from images of fittings he knows what he is talking about. Considering their full bespoke is starting around ($2200 AUD I think) what some MTM in Australia can cost there are plenty of Aus SF members lining up to try them out.
I got measured up by incontro in Sydney and then ran out of money. Since then, I've frittered away enough money on bits'n'pieces to fund two bloody B&T bespoke suits. I have no restraint.
Nevertheless I am 100% fundamentally committed to going ahead with my B&T project. Just as soon as I have the cash...
Apropos of frittering money, and this is probably not the appropriate thread, but I'm really chuffed about a deal I picked up last week at a department store sale in Sydney. Chocolate brown suede wingtips from Canali. They are not an SF-favoured shoe brand, and probably not quite as sturdily made as (say) Carmina, but discounted by 60% they worked out at around half the price of an equivalent pair from the latter maker.
In the next side-by-side shot, you can see this shoe's similarity with the Carmina Rain last.
If there's a purchase bragging thread (as opposed to a thrifting brag thread, which is slightly different, no?) then I'll delete here and post there instead.
@Claghorn Your story is very interesting. Thanks for that. Like yourself, I was no stranger to suits and came SF for inspiration mainly about odd jacket/trouser combinations--not so much the ties like you. You're a very quick study and have a prodigious track record here of sublime odd/jacket ensembles, including ties! Also, kudos to you for your well deserved credentials here at SF. I must say, I've learnt more about being a well dressed man in the last twenty seven "weeks" at SF than I did in preceding twenty seven "years" of buying custom made clothes in HK on my lonesome. Thanks to the collective wisdom of SF community, both past and present members, and the internet. Thanks for sharing.
I came here two years ago to sell a pair of shoes.
I've bought thirty.
I cam here with like 6 suits...now I just have one good one.
Those weren't suits. They were crap.
And you are doing the right thing.
Just be careful when you go bespoke, be certain it is exactly what you want when you begin.
You came here with 6 suits that didn't look good on you. Now you have one that looks awesome, a couple crappy beaters, your wedding suit and great options to end up with suits that make you look your best.
did u preorder a new formosa?
