Are you using a wide angle camera?
the second Chan photo is close to the pose you want.
The first grey suit is by simpson SXX?
may be this is not the problem of the suits, is the problem of the posture.
The shoulder and padding still look too much, the back still not good at all.
It's no point to give any comments on these pictures if not stand naturally. It's unfair to tailor.
I just got back from my basted fitting with Chan in SF and thought it was definitely worth the $311 extra. I figure I'll just order more items to spread the cost over multiple garments.
Patrick ended up shortening the vest by quite a bit. He also advised to enlarge the seat of the pants. He took the jacket in at the waist a little bit and increased the bottom side of the armholes by 1/4". Finally, he's taking up the sleeves by 1/4" and 1/2".
I met with Joe Hemrajani about 30 minutes before, and he suggested that I tighten the shirt cuffs by 1/4", which should make them shorter.
The pants look great!
Do you have photographs of the trousers and the inside of the jackets for similar comparisons please?
Thanks, I got double inverted pleats with side tabs, fishtale for braces. I didn't realize (or forgot) that pants designed for braces couldn't be worn without them, so now I'll have to buy some Thurstons, since I don't even own a set of braces.
Very very nice. How much did Chan charge this 3 pc Fresco 520?
Is your Chan suit measure, cut and fitted by Patrick Chu? Normal range Zegna fabric are not that expensive. Aprrox. HK$1K per yd. For you HK$3K maybe enough for 2 pc with Zegna fabric. People go to Chan mainly for top craftsmanship instead of fabric. You can see another guy using general English fabric Fresco 520 can made a beautiful suit from Chan.
If you request them not to do fused suit, but they made you a fused one.
Did they cheat you? Did they honest tell when delivery the suit to you? I think I will ask the tailor shop to print full canvass on depsoit slip. If tailor shops cheat me, I will go to Consumer Council or Next Mazagine.
At that time, I make myself very clear to sifu that I don't want to use fused one, but at the time to get the suit, the sale said that is a fused one.
And they said you next suit you can pay 800hkd more for the full canvas one.
But truly speaking I won't go there anymore.
If I were you, I will reject the suit and ask for full refund.
Because I need to wear it for an important function, so I have to take it
And it is very difficult to refund
To me, it is like a trap.
Thank you for sharing your unhappy experience to us.
