    I think every one like a good deal.
    But it is up to the customer to decide which deal is the "best" for him.
    Some of the members are fans of WWChan or GY here. So be it.
    I would like to explore more options, and see their good and weak.

    Guys, take it easy.

    I will take it easy.

    Really, I lot of guys kicked me in here or discuss.com.hk WHOM I never seen or know.

    Tailor Lai cmt price is decided by himself, not me. If people think he is overprice, customers will go away. HK is a free trade soicety.

    Most of Tailor Lai customers now are previous Peter Lee / Lee Baron customers whose suits are made by Tailor Lai.

    If people know Peter Lee / Lee Baron CMT made by Tailor Lai, people may think Tailor Lai present CMT is reasonable and worth to travel a few MTR station.

    Car, as you said, Lai business is none of your business. So just let them talk.
    You should take more good care of your own business. ;)

    Fish, I cannot remember I have repeated how many times.

    Put in other way, if you find a friend to share your apartment, do u want him to leave if he cannot afford ? It will result I pay for whole expense or find another one to share.

    As I said, I will not fight with a hugh groups by myself only.

    People can easily understand why they want to do that. Let them talk is the best.

    Car, when the trust lost, it is no use for you to repeat how many times.

    Put another way, they just don't believe what you said, just like no one believe what CY Leung said in Hong Kong

    It is what you guys believe but it is not the fact.

    I cannot control other people thinking and no meaning for me to explain so many times.

    People who believe me will believe me and people who do not believe me do not.

    Are they long hair, Wong Yuk Man or Chan Wai Yip?

    can anyone share how to choose a good canvas. Is it the high portion of hair the better of quality?

    To add on that, canvass have different weight so it all depends on the fabric used on the garment.

    according to Mr. Fishball, it is better to ask them for a swatch and ask the cutter what to use.

    The for the clarification.

    I mean asking swatches from the trimmings merchant e.g. RichardJamesWeldon or Dugdale.

    I believe Dugdale are slightly cheaper. I am not sure which are more willing to do with retail orders.

    IMO, since one yard of canvas is usuallu more than enough for a jacket, unless I am making say a dozen or more jackets a year, I would just let my tailor use his in-house canvas or if he has RJW / LBD / Dugdale canvas in stock ask him to use it.
    I doubt RJW would be interested in dealing with overseas customers who intend to buy several yards of canvas,
