Very nice pair of pants at this price point. Do you know which brand do they get the linen from, and the weight? It seems to drape quite well. And does it still look sharp after some wear? I guess they ironed the pants to absolute perfection before taking those two photos.
Thanks! It's from a Baird McNutt bunch, can't remember the weight unfortunatelly but should be around 10oz. They call the coulour "natural", and it has a nice depth in real life. It does wrinkles quite a bit after a few hours sitting down at a desk, particularly in the knee area. I left half an inch wrinkle allowance at the hem on purpose.

Anyone can comment on Anthology pricing? Robb Report did an article about Anthology and quoted $2100 for a two piece suit. Seems like price increased or just mark up for trunkshows. DM'd their Instagram, said NYC pricing will be similar to London trunkshow.

For a MTM? That's nearly Chan pricing...

Looks great.

Maybe you give a bit more room around the front, so the pockets align better. As soon as you sit down, it will crease in 30 secs and the shape will fall apart compared to a standing position

Btw, I had a few pairs of linen-pants made at YW Yu on Mody Road. He is my go-to guy for years now. Price was 2.800 to 3.500, quite happy with it. We did everything over email and no problems.

I have all my pants made there, even old slacks I cut into shorts these days. Highly recommend the shop.

Aren't they bespoke? Unless I was under the wrong impression...

Edit: Yea $2100 is bespoke pricing.
They quoted me around 12k hkd for a suit made with Drapers 4ply. They just launched the MTM program and I think the suit starts at 7.5k

I had a bespoke W/S/L jacket from Solbiati for around 8k, well worth it from my point of view. I did the rounds of most tailors I like in HK (ie. youngish and with a modern italian cut) and the Anthology's pricing was pretty much in line with most. Suitsupply quoted me 6.9k for a mtm jacket in a similar italian fabric, not really worth saving that 1k IMHO.

I had a good impression of Coller in central, they seem to have most production in house (or so they claim). Anyone had any experience with them? They are just a tad cheaper than Anthology.
