Hi everyone, this is my first post and Id like to say that I am lucky to find such an active forum that I can bounce clothing and style questions off of. I will be going to hong kong and am interested in getting 2 suits: a navy blue wool suit, and a khaki cotton suit. This is my first time getting a tailored suit, and I have a few questions to ask... 1. Is it worth it to get a khaki cotton suit tailored, or just get one off the rack? Since the materials are cheap, is it worth paying for the tailoring process, and do tailors even make cotton suits? 2. Are cotton khaki trousers machine washable, or are is all tailored clothing dry clean only? 3. I want to spend $500 or less on the navy suit, and $300 or less on the khaki cotton suit. From the search on this forum, Ive read that Jantzen is the place to go, but problems may occur if they are busy. Would it aid the tailoring process to bring pictures and preferences to improve the time/fitting? are there other places that are recommended, affordable, and less busy? Any help or advice is appriciated, thanks!
