The more you know, the more you regret.
$2365 without the fitting + $200 for fitting
Please tell me more.
Thank you. Please post out after you received the finish suit..
y'know, I'd be curious to know what Isolation's basic measurements - at least shoulders, waist and hips - are. From some of the pictures he sure seems to have a really odd body shape which is going to look a bit off no matter how good the tailor.
well, that and/or a huge drop right shoulder and/or really awkward posture. it's the combination that's really discombobulating things, I think.
oh, and when you're taking fit pics of a very dark suit (like the Chan), you should crank up the exposure above your camera's auto settings, or we can't really see any details.
Sometime I don't know the forum is good or bad for us.
Back to 2011, when I ordered my Fresco 533 Jacket CMT from GY, and pants from another very good pants maker in Hong Kong. It cost me just about $800.
I bought my cloth directly from HFW.
I don't know how much a similar suit will cost if I ordered now in house.
I envy the days of $750 Chan suits.
Yes, that is not very long time ago. I think back to 2007, they has special offer for basic VBC below 1,000.
After this unhappy disappointed experience, I asked other opinion and know more about where to buy the fabric and where can found a good sifu. Then I know what they did is horrible. mark up to fabric about 3 fold and the craftsmanship is not that good and cost me a lot.
We all learn from experience.
How much did you pay for your Moda suit and with what fabric? Can you tell me , where to buy fabric and find good sifu?
However, I think it should be fair that tailor shop mark up the cloth is the norm. They act as a service provider, so they charged a service provider price. Just like you buy a lipton tea bag in the wholesale house is cheaper than supermarket, and much much cheaper when you order a cup of tea in a nice restaurant.
Mark up is a must, otherwise, no tailor shops business can survive. However, if a tailor shop promised customer to supply non fused suit/ jacket but come out a fused one and told the customer to pay $800 more next time in order to get a non fused one. What do you call that kind of behaviour ?.
