    What brand are you talking about?
    What you are doing is just like upload a telephone list of Baotou in telephone book. No further information.

    I am a consumer, I am not a sale. I do not recommend anyone, I make comment only. Name the Baotou and name the tailor shops he works for.

    4520# blind test explained.

    This photo shows how a Shenzhen workshop working on the shoulder of a suit, I have no idea what this process is about. Is that good or not good, I don't know. They supply suits to many bespoke tailor shops in HK through BaoTou. I am not pointing to any tailor shop, therefore, I won't name any of them. We are consumers, we look at the beautiful decoration of retail shops and their brands, but we seldom look at what's behind of everything. This is the reality:

    I really do not understand what you are talking about? Do you mean you are leading us to Baotou is like giving us a blind test?

    I am a consumer and you said you are a consumer, we both do not know why the jacket pop up and what is coat maker doing on the shoulders ? It is like blinding our eyes to visit a workshop in Shenzhen. What is the point to go there? Why don't you ask and tell us ? Another blind test ?

    ekingRoadHK, post: 8846491, member: 250739"]4523# is easier for you to understand. nothing against you or anyone or tailor shop or BaoTou, it answered all your questions and all complaints from you guys. it explained this is consumers behaviour.

    I don't have to teach psychology 101 here. Many consumers of bespoke tailor shop can easily understand it, foreigners and locals. They read this, they know what this is about and what's behind it.[/QUOTE]

    From consumers' behavior, I totally do not understand your behavior. But you said you are a consumer ???
    Had you studied psychology 101 ??

    @PekingRoadHK - you were warned about this, and decided to go about this in a roundabout manner. Your "blind test" was a blatant disregard for my request that you drop the subject.

    Unluckily for you, I'm culturally Chinese, and I don't care for this type of BS.

    I've tried to be patient with you, but at this point , I've had enough. I have other, more important things to deal with.

    I deleted your last several posts, and if you decide to pursue the subject, I will be forced to temporarily ban you.

    Now, I'm going out for the evening. @chobochobo will keep an eye on this. If, in his opinion, you are persisting even the slightest bit, I will time you out for at least a week.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Hi fellow SF friends,

    I know this is a very long shot since its a holiday today and Wednesday. But I just arrived in HK and would love to get another bespoke made. I've had 4 WWChan, 1 GY, and 2 Dream done in the last few years. However after quickly scanning through the last few pages of this thread, none were mentioned. And it appears, Ng sifu CMT is highly recommended. But due to time constraint (I'm leaving this Sunday), I won't be able to source out my own fabric.

    Can anyone recommend a decent bespoke tailor with: equal to or lower than Chan's price? I know it'll be rushed and I am willing to accept slight subpar fit but I'll only require 1 or 2 fittings max and I will pay them to ship it back to me when it's completed.

    Thanks to all contributors!

    ask your desired tailor shops if they can complete a suit for you in about 5 days. they might tell you they can do that, but they might charge a little extra. if that is fine for you, go for it.

    I heard some BaoTou are happy to complete a suit with 1 fitting in 2/3days for something extra, so as tailor shops. Both BaoTou and tailor shops can do that.

    No time for fabric shopping, don't go BaoTou, go tailor shops only.
