*Almost* ready to take this Nutter-inspired suit home. To match the loud bellied lapels, I went for the “single sleeve button” option, something you don't see on a daily basis.

All in all, I quite like the fit of the jacket. If the back doesn't seem clean enough, it's probably just because of my bad posture.

my opinion, to have a better proportion to the wide peak lapel, I would have a bit bigger pocket cover, 2.3inch instead of 2 inch. I always have 2.5inch pocket cover for wide lapel.

The length is perfect. If you feel the back is clean enough, the fitting is good.

not sure, but if that is true, I think it won't last for over a few days.

before the holiday, I heard baotou will start to work late this week or sometime next week.

you got their cell phone numbers, you can call your baotou to arrange your fitting outside the building (e.g. your office/your hotel or your baotou home/his friend's tailor shops) if the bldg is closed.

@dukenukem4ever

you can do some online shopping for fabrics before coming to HK for CMT.


This is my Scabal, I am now shopping for fabrics.

Does anyone know where to buy suit buttons? I need to pick up some buttons for a small project where the sifu does not have buttons but am not sure where to look in HK.

I've purchased some other buttons previously at YW Buttons, but I believe they have a minimum order of 1 gross, whereas I'm only looking to get about 12 buttons.
