    Thank you all for the observations. I will look to address them during my next fitting. I believe both issues, button point and open quarters, are being caused by the way the jacket was pinned during the fitting but will certainly pay attention to them next time. I should have noted that this will be a 3 roll 2, clearly am a novice at this.

    Now I just need to see about that sleeve...

    There's pattern-matching at the back (horizontal lines on the body aligned with those in the sleeves), but not in front. But if you're not so finicky...

    It's a first fitting these usually gets corrected by the time the coats is finish.

    BTW, may I know what is the cost for a full canvas jacket/pants by Gordan Yao/Dream Bespoke, if fabric is provided by me?

    I think that's Gordon's going rate for VBC 110.

    ^Sounds more like it. For CMT, U.S. $1,300 seemed very steep, especially since I'd always heard Yao and Chan were pretty closely comparable in price.

    Hello, first time post but long time lurker. I'm curious, $650 USD for VBC from Simpson Sin - is that fully canvassed? And do they have Thomas Mason or other brands of shirt fabrics?

    Yes, but I had to ask for full canvassed. They have a wide selection of shirting fabrics including TM.

    Hmm, interesting. How much are their (non-fused with MOP buttons) shirts with TM? On another note, does anyone know if GY/Simpson Sin/Dream Bespoke or others can use Neapolitan features (i.e. natural shoulders, open quarters, softer canvas?, etc. )

    GY make one of the best 3 roll to 2 in Hong Kong.

    I think they can do natural shoulders, open quarters, softer canvas, but... is that Neapolitan features?
