    Hey Guys,

    My dad sent me this email -- he was sent a mass email about a HK based tailor coming to Vancouver to make bespoke suits.

    Anyone heard of these guys? If so, any good? Sounds fishy, but I dunno. Below is the email:

    Yep, I tried them out. I'm living in Perth, Australia, so I went to get a fitting from Andy when he was in town. I decided to get two suits, with two pairs of pants each.

    They arrived in the mail. Fit great (to my surprise), and really comfortable -- not like wearing a "suit", but just a nice set of clothes. Exactly what I wanted.

    Just watch out for price -- if you go for the nicer fabrics, you can spend a lot. But yes, it is real, and not a scam. I'm definitely thinking of ordering one more suit with one of the fabrics I passed up last time.
