    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.

    You just asked for completely made in Hong Kong.:fistbump:

    craftmanship? nothing special, just "in between"

    5k is the minimum charge, and I think it is a fused suit with canvas.

    Very nice. Super sharp. Not my sort of look, but I like it.

    Fused suit with canvas is half canvas I assume.

    Old people tailors affronted I want the shoulders on my overcoat reduced. One said in Chinese "It'll become like a suit!" other said "Thats what he wants just do it."

    Unrelated I saw a man wearing a suit and tie with belt as well as clip on braces leaving the shop.
