    I would avoid both of those (as indicated PH and Online are the same) , Ravis is simply dreadful and their is much criticism.

    Is there no local tailor you could try or alternately Gordon Yao is considering going to Australia next year.

    I am very unhappy to have this as my first post on this wonderful site- but I am sorry, I am very disappointed with the garment received from Ravis Tailor.

    The garment fits as though cut for a much bigger man, feels hard and unpleasant to the touch, and the trousers are coming apart at the seams around the 'you-know-where'.

    The only good thing that came from this experience is that it quickly led me to do more research on tailored to fit suits, menswear, style- which ULTIMATELY led me to discover Styleforum.net.

    It is a grand illusion to think that an overseas online tailor will make you a nice suit. In my prior life, I tried them with the same result over and over again- they churn out utter garbage. It's like asking them to make a nice car from cardboard. They will never say no, but you won't be able to drive it. For anything even remotely acceptable you need a 2nd fitting and not less than $1,000 (and, realistically, much more than that for anything really nice).

    Online MTM is only suitable for shirts and maybe pants.

    It's no bull. I have been buying my suits from princhenry, mysuitshop, excellentsuits etc. for years..After my first suit from them, I will never buy off-the-rack again for dress/business attire. It was exactly what I asked for down to the smallest detail! The only thing I'm concerned about is my credit card. So I use a seperate card for that and I get new cards every 6-8 months.

    Mycustomtailor.com & Ravistailor.com are one & the same ROTTEN outfit. Ravi, the master tailor who looks like a frog, is a dishonest & incompetent man. He measured the suit jacket 2 inches short, made the pant bottoms too big--this after I went thru the measurements with him three times. After the suit arrived & I informed him he asked me to mail the suit back to him in Thailand for corrections. I paid $40 to ship it & he returned the damn suit without fixing it. Now he says he can't fix the jacket. But if you read the terms & conditions of the contract, he is supposed to replace the jacket that he hasn't done. MYCUSTOMTAILOR.COM MUST BE AVOIDED like the plague. if you VALUE your hard earned money. In fact Thailand tailor have to be avoided like the plague. Go to Hong Kong or Shanghai where they honor their word & if you are dissatisfied they will remake the suit to please you. NOTE also that Ravistailor & Mycustomtailor do not identify the fabric quality on the inside of the jacket--largely because what material you pick at the time of ordering they switch it at delivery time. Lousy workmanship. Robi
