    Hello all, Maxwell's clothiers from Hong Kong (www.maxwellsclothiers.com) is bringing one of their travelling MTM mail-order shows to my city in the near future. I haven't tried them before, but seeing as I need a new suit or two I was going to give them a try. Anybody with experience with them? I'm especially interested in the level of quality and the prices. Thanks.

    You're in Toronto? They have a permanent reps in town actually, I have his contact info. Anyways, I asked this a while back and the it seems that at that price point, Jantzen Tailor (just do a search if you're new to the forum) is a better option for shirts. Also if you're looking for a suit, an English tailor, Darren Beaman, who is highly regarded by some forum members is coming to town, but he's charging considerably more expensive than the best of HK tailors, although not bad for Saville Row standards. I'm trying to look around for local TO tailors (other than the expensive guys like Perry's, Beauchamp, Rosen, Stavros, etc) as well. http://www.styleforum.net/cgi-bin....41;st=0 http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/Forum....toronto

    FCS, Yep, I'm in TO.
    I'm not really looking for shirts since I have too many already. I'm looking for a new suit, but I'm pretty sure I can't afford the likes of Darren Beamon. There are plenty of good tailors around TO as you mentioned, but none in my price range.
    I'd appreciate it if you could send me the contact info on the Maxwell rep. Have you met him? Does he have sample suits and all the fabric swatches? What do you (and others) think of the quality of the suits?

    Thanks,
    FKL.
