    There has been a lot on this board about W.W. Chan, especially of late with their US tour in progress. Occasionally, Raja Fashion comes up. Other than that he's supposed to be a "hard sell" operation, I have never been really able to determine whether his suits are good, bad or indifferent for the prices asked. I am similarly agnostic about Noble House beyond being aware of their existence and having visited their website. Just saw some positive comment about Hemrajani but couldn't access their website. Anyway, I would be interested to know more about people's experience with the latter three tailoring firms. Are there any similar outfits that tour the USA? And how good are they?

    I was very impressed by Kai's WW Chan suit. I wasn't impressed by the suit someone else posted made by either Noble House or Hemrajani, can't remember which. I'm inclined to say that WW Chan will give you a high-quality suit at a decent price, and that quality is more assured than from Noble House or Hemrajani, where you will have to play a larger part in quality control.

    Of course, that's just my guess based on people's posts and reviews. I could be very wrong.

    I'm waiting for a suit from Raja, and will post pics as soon as it arrives, in 2-3 weeks. No experience with the others.
