1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I brought it when I was a student using student accounts. This had been sitting on the shelf for many years.

    New unfunded liabilities - Dormeuil "Royal Opera" wool/silk/chasmere charcoal chalkstripe 10oz ; Moxon Lumbs Golden Bale black fancy chalkstripe 10oz

    These two fabrics has the English feel, rich in hand and surprising no luxurious feel, beautiful colour with "quasi-Italian" sheen.

    What's so funny? Thats the good bit when you attended resistant material technology for O and A level where the school will have special account and price for students.

    I personally just use Luxire for things that don't need as precise tailoring. I am getting Moda Republic to make shirt jackets though.

    Potential answers.

    1. Are you really asking this question?
    2. Have you taken a look at past posts of this thread?
    3. There is no such a thing.
    4. We have to define what "good" means.
    5. Just go to Armoury or WWChan.
    6. Walk around Nathan Street, they will find you.

    Should check this thread and won't spend you more than 2 days. Worth it

    Any good recommendations for a tailor to add working buttonholes to a sport coat? Chinese speaking is not a problem but just need someone who can finish in 2 days and will do a good job. Thanks in advance.

    This thread is getting tedious. A newcomer who cannot be troubled to read it, talk about creating button holes...

    I know you are not referring to me GBR. I am hardly a newcomer, check my join date. I have had many suits/sports coats commissioned by Chan. I thought this thread was a source for knowledge, as someone who does not frequent HK but for maybe once every other year, I was asking for help from some more knowledgable residents.

    Why wait to go to Hong Kong? Get them done at home.

    So now ordering enough suits from Chan means knowledgeable?

    Have you consider local tailors? The tailors that you have used in Hong Kong?

    I would think those are better choice rather than going to someone totally new.
