$3250 is scary close to what I paid for my WW Chan bespoke commission back in October. Not sure if it's Ring Jacket or The Armoury driving the prices up, but outside of their RTW line, it's no longer the value-for-money mid range offering it used to be.

Given they will be releasing their S/S lineup shortly, don't jinx it haha!

Ring Jacket suit MTO seems to have gone up again, up to $3250 now. At twice the price of some of the RTW, it's quite the premium.
Was that the number they gave you in store? I’m still seeing $2,750 for their MTO suit on the site.

I was emailing with them this week and the on site prices were still accurate at least for MTO sport coats (starting at $1,950).

Chan haven’t been a value for money tailor for a long time either. I think most people in Asia have pivoted towards Korean tailors for that.

Yes they quoted me $3,250, and mentioned that the price had recently gone up. (Last year I was quoted the same $2,750 that you're referencing). I'm not sure what to make of the sport coat price you mention, since it would be odd if prices for one went up but not the other.

Gotcha, I’m not sure! Technically they quoted me $2,150 for the MTO jacket but they noted that this was a higher cost than the baseline due to using nicer fabric (so I assumed it was still close to the $1.95K previous price).

Which Korean tailors? Assisi starts at almost 4k. B&tailor in New York is 4k+. Maybe if you go to Korea, you can get a better price.

I don’t recall precise Assisi prices but they’re definitely not $4k USD within Asia.
