    Graly does fitting. I don't remember if they keep paper pattern or not, probably they do.

    Not related to your post but how did you choose your forum name?

    Talking about Prologue, I generally like their products photos. I have not seen their real pieces so my impression is just based on pictures. I like Mr. JT's suit most among their photos, but some of their jackets on their customers look slightly off to me. About the below, to my liking, jacket should be a bit longer and pocket should be lower accordingly. Or button place should be slightly higher.

    IMO, Prologue is up to the present the only tailor in HK manged to create a signature cut of its own which looks good.
    Lower gorge, steep inclined gorge line, wide collar, slight/ not really slight concave lapel, lower button stance & a elongated silhouette in a soft construction - it reminds me some of the vintage cut of Polo RL suits, nice drape !

    Agree with the house style viewpoint, at least Prologue Have one and they stick (hopefully) to it.

    Not really sure what the housestyle of the bigger house like Gordon Yao or WWChan are....or if they even have one.

    One thing for us is that HK tailor house has this image of being a great place to copy your SR / Napolian suit....so really we dont want your house style.

    If i were U , I would be more humble. Post your own portrait photos before making some aggressive comments; let me comment on your style.
    BTW, what is SR ?

    SR= Savile Row

    I don't see any agressiveness on hippo's post. Only thing I may see as a source of misunderstanding is that "we dont want your house style".
    It should be "we dont want their house style" from the context and this "you" is not referring to Geebo but to GY and Chan.

    Maybe we need to look at the full body picture. Maybe if they increase the length of the jacket, it might throw off the balance of the suit. Either way, I think we can let them know what kind of length we want even if it's MTM?

    Agree on the product photos. We need more people to try them out and let us know how it looks in real life.

    Naturally IG photos were screened for good representation of their product, we need to see real products or photos of real life example. I generally think their products are well thought and executed. There are some points I find peculiar to their products. One of those is their high position of hip pockets, I rarely see pockets position relative to lower button that high. I usually see lower button point and opening of the pockets are more or less at the same height. In Prologue case, opening of the pockets is about 1 inch higher than lower button. Probably it is to take balance with their relatively low buttoning points and open quarter.

    I speculate (without any further evidence) that they do not want to mess around with the original pattern of their gauge garments. In that case it is possible that jacket length be longer or shorter without adjustments of buttoning points or pocket position.

    Are you planning to use them anytime soon? If yes, maybe you can bring this up with them. I think they should have their reasons for doing that.

    Anyway, do you think their cut is suitable for all body sizes/shapes?
