    I think DB default is RJW canvas, but you better ask Ricky

    I have clarify the canvass origin with Ricky about two days ago. Before I see this post, I have been tipped by a close friend on the same matter.

    Although He did not tell me the origin of their default canvass, but canvass from RichardJamesWeldon cost HK$200 extra in each coat. Perhaps Ricky has made a 'special default' for you.

    He kept silent on whether RJW canvass will be used on the waistcoat, I presumed he will. I shall ask him upon baste fitting.

    I have no idea. They have around 10 different canvasses as far as I know. The one Hui uses on mine feels stiff and English-like.

    I will ask him on that point.

    Hi All,

    I'm newbie here but I'm senior member from HK local forum. I have just registered. The reason why I especially registered is because I wanna tell you guys more about Classic Car.

    He repeatedly emphasized here that he is independent of the tailor in his shop. However, most people from that local forum realized that he has been earning commission from that tailor. He has been kicked out of that local forum already because many people felt disgused with his behaviour. Then he has been using different false accounts from time to time. Now he set up this workshop with that tailor officically but pretending to be independent. I am sure many members here and in local forum have received his pm, promoting his workshop tailor. It is not only a shameful business promtion skill, but also a seirous personal intergrity problem.

    To be honest, some people may feel ok even if he earns commission. But in my opinion, it is also a rip off. That tailor is just charging 4K CMT, which is significantly much more than normal workshop price. The obvious reason of the difference is because Classic Car needs to earn the commission but claimed doing nothing to do with it. Remember, there is no decoration, no service in such a lousy district. You may get nothing once the tailor ran away. While Dreambespoke is located in prime area, with good decoration and professional service, they are charging just the same price. I can comment the craftsmanship of DreamBespoke is even better. Thus, for me, the charging of Classic Car's so called "workshop" is so unreasonable.

    Im not hoping all members here would trust me. But if you have doubt, please ask any senior members in that forum. They will tell you the same.

    There are so many good tailors in HK that worth to be discussed here. However, after Classic Car has started his workshop, he has been posting many messages here to explicitly or implicitly promote it. This post has been hijacked by him already!!!

    Classic Car, please stop this shameful skill!

    Haha, you groups of guys keep on promoting Harrison and Dream Bespoke in here and hk discuss forum but kick me hard for promoting Lai sifu.

    It is O.K., I am alone and cannot fight with you in groups.

    People who loves Tailor Lai craftmanship, please go to Peter Lee as he is still sub-contract to Tailor Lai .

    As a maximum, I just let my upstair vacant.

    Saying Classic car had been promoting Lai sifu is so overkill. I don't even think car had posted a single picture of Lai's craftsmanship.
