    Hi!
    So I visited HK last month, and had a couple of suits made at the oh-so-famous WW Chan & Sons. Now, after wearing the suits a number (less than a dozen) of times, I'm appalled about the quality, as 2 pants out of 3 have torn from the crotch. I've made sure I haven't worn them improperly by wearing suspenders. Am I doing something horribly wrong, or what the devil is going on here?

    On the both pants the tear starts from the behind, approximately 8 centimeters from the top of the seam, and goes downwards. Pure & simple.

    Just be glad its the pants that ripped and not your nut sack. Your Chan probably saved your life, and in a way, the lives of many. Who knew...

    just throwing it out there, but have you contacted Chan?

    probably fair to let them try and sort it out before posting it on the forums
