    I live in HK now but haven't bought an HK suit in a few years. For 25 years I bought from a decent bunch --- well above the street hawkers but not one of the more famous names. I bought a few shirts at Jantzen and then a dozen more as I was very happy with them. I wasnt as impressed with the suits I inspected that they had finished for others so I went to W W Chan and Gordon Yao. Both seemed very good candidates. But I hit it off at H Baroman and the workmanship is first rate.

    I dont think you should consider them to be super creative. The styles are very conventional.... and some people say that like it is a bad thing.

    Not all of us can pull of "Skyfall."

    Does Baroman use canvass by hand or by sewing machine? How do they compare with Ah Man Hing Cheong?
    How about their pricing compare with W W Chan or Gordan Yao?

    I'll get pictures shortly. The prices are a little hard to compare as I never really compared exactly the same material. There is both machine and hand stitching on the garment but the canvas is hand stitched. Odd that we had that discussion and you asked! I can probably not answer many more technical ones.

    Yao seems to be more expensive in general. But that could be the material I was looking at. The WW Chan prices were also all over the place. The cheapest suit there was about 2000$ and they went much higher --- they have some material that was more than 8k per suit that i remember. Yao probably did as well and I wouldnt be shocked to know that Baroman's top ones were up there.

    I got a nice charcoal suit at Baroman's with great material for less than 2k and am having a cashmere sportscoat for just over that.

    I will post pics....

    Your comment is very helpful. Baroman had employed a new young cutter, the quality and pricing has improved recently.
