    Wondering if anyone has had opinions or experience to share on Roger Concept. I work at a bank and Roger seems to be the number 1 choice of many of my colleagues, but I haven't found much talk about him on SF. Anyone?

    My banker friend use them too. Maybe he is working for the same place as you. It looked quite nice on my friend. I did not use them in the end as i wanted CMT.

    I haven't been to Roger previously which is why I'm trying to solicit as many opinions as possible first, but he's generally in the 6,000-10,000 range.

    Never before in HK, pretty much just off the rack and then fitted a bit by random NYC tailors whose names I don't remember. Pretty new to SF as you can see by my post count.

    Well that's what I'm posting for in the first place, to see if anyone has any positive or negative experiences that they could report.

    I'm not made of money, my job requires a decent suit but I'm not exactly swimming in cash. i.e. not really financially comfortable enough to be trying out multiple tailors, so I'm trying to get as much information as I can before I decide on which one. Like I said, previously I only owned a couple of $200-400 off the rack suits. This would be my first real tailored suit so excuse me if I'm trying to get as much information as I can before I take the plunge.

    I used the search function already and didn't really find anything on Roger, so I'm asking to see if there might be anyone who has tried Roger in the past but never posted about it for whatever reason. Isn't that what this thread is for? So sorry if this thread is meant only for people who get tailored suits on a frequent and regular basis. I'd post a new thread, but people seem to sneer at all the new HK tailor related threads as well.

    Have you considered Ng Sifu?
    He seems to fit your budget in the 6000-7000HKD range and from what I can see, does very very good work.
    If I were on a budget and looking to get my first suit I'd really consider going to him.
    Sorry i can't give you anything constructive on Roger as I'm not from HK and more or less a newbie to this thread.

    Very little talk of Dream Bespoke here lately anymore, is there a reason to this? I was going to have a few things more made with them.

    Had a suit made from them 7-8 years ago.
    Cutting was not bad
    But they only make fused jackets which i do not like.
