    Sure:...
    Thank you.
    y so serious, stuff looks great!...
    Because I'm seriously happy with it.

    Actually, I'm preparing myself for the SF hypercriticism -- which extends to such things as facial expressions.

    JK. But seriously: No criticizing other's clothes, I mean, facial expressions, if you don't post your own!

    OK, that wasn't serious either...
    I wasn't suggesting that I had concern. I've never been to the HK shop, so I'm not familiar with anyone there besides the traveling team. Was curious though about who has the con when Patrick's gone. Maybe some of the HK members here can weigh in on their familiarity with the other Chan tailors.
    I wouldn't worry. The suit looks like it's taking shape well.

    I support this message. Also, blue, brown, tan, and cream.

    You remind me of someone.

    Whatever happened to Vox? Did he reach the max number of posts?

    Patrick is a cutter not a tailor who makes the clothes, same people making the actual garments regardless of whether Patrick is around. On a personal preferance, if I know Patrick is not there and I wanted to order something I would wait until I know he is back

    What's the schedule of Chan's visit to US? Trip to HK is kind of expensive.

    New Chan arrived today! I had fittings in HK not by Patrick, but members of his team which worked out well. They were crunched for time so had to ship it to me. It's a W. Bill Shetland herringbone jacket with matching vest.

    The color in the second photo is pretty accurate. It looks better than I recall in the shop. I think the lighting at Chan made it seem more green and muddy for some reason. Very comfortable with a decent amount of drape.

    I feel like the first photo is an ode to Manton's old ones. Will try and take outdoor shots sometime.

    That is indeed really beautiful. Did you get that made when I met you last time around? What does Chan charge for a sports coat these days?

    That's really nice, David. One of the best in a while.

    How heavy is that fabric, btw?

    Thanks guys!

    Yep. What I got on the recent trip. Around $1100 USD depending on the fabric.

    I believe around 13oz. Not entirely sure.

    I've always heard mixed reviews on shetland trousers and I knew with this shade I just wouldn't wear it as a suit very much at all. If this was more like the color of Parker's herringbone and not Shetland I likely would have.

    Great fabric. That color will work with just about anything.
