Hello everyone!

I am new to the forum and had a question for everyone. Currently I am in search of fabrics for suits in Hong Kong. I saw some old posts about this but wasn't able to find anything current. If I have overlooked please post the thread and or let me know with any advice or suggestions that you may have. I am looking for all types of suit fabrics from middle to high end fabrics. Thanks for your help everyone and again I am new to this so just trying to get a little information.

There are two threads which cover this subject, one is the 'Hong Kong Tailors' and another whose title I cannot remember to spell but which covers direct purchases from small workshops. These are both 'live' now and a little lateral thinking would have put you there.

Why do want to know about cloth? You are very unlikely to save any money as a tailor will simply add his margin to a CMT commission and the outturn price will be the same. You will also find that many tailors will not do CMT at all and others will not do it for a first commission.

You would be better served by reading the Hong Kong Tailor thread to determine the pricing point you want and then go to the tailors involved.

That remark has no place here and for someone so new it is even worse.

I have offered you advice on the subject as requested, just because you don't like it is not a reason for abuse.

You claim there are no threads - do you not want to be told there are two? Few will repeat their comments and certainly not in context. This new thread will likely sink away into oblivion, may be that would be better.

I was unable to locate any current threads from the search bar, I never claimed there were no threads. Please learn to read before you respond. I apologize for calling you a dick, I meant to call you an asshole.
