I went cmt.
Fit pics please.
Picked up my second suit today, the three piece. Great fit. I ordered two shirts and another three piece in charcoal fresco. Too addictive.
The first pants were a bit loose on the waist so I brought them back for adjustment.
I was walking from Peter's place to dinner in East TST (Fujiyma 55, okay for tsukemen, if anyone's interested) and went along Mody Road. Wow, I never noticed there were so many 'tailors' around.
Some good and some not so good
I saw Sammy's, that's a good one (relatively speaking)?
There's a lot of good tailors out there that we on this board has never heard of. I've never heard of Sammy's personally. I know of Sam's tailor.
After a couple of wears of the first linen DB suit, it seems a bit loose in the waist. I'm going to ask Peter to alter it a bit, but otherwise I really like it.
Again, fit pics would be great to see.
Had the first suit (DB linen) taken in by Lee Baron and now looking good. Also got the charcoal fresco three piece - very nice indeed. A bunch of shirts: 2 cotton with contrast collars and 6 linen with soft collar. Nice.
May I know how much they charged you for the fresco 3 pieces?
I think it was 6500 CMT.
I am an exchange student at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and I am thinking about having a suit tailored in HK. I have read many posts but could not find anything about Rashmi Custom Tailors ( http://www.rashmi.com/home/ ). When googeling this tailor he is often mentioned (e.g. http://gohongkong.about.com/od/shoppinginhk/tp/Hong-Kong-Tailors.htm) , but I could not find any reviews. I have send them a mail allready and the reply was very friendly, not pushy at all.
Does somebody have experiences with this tailor? Have you heard about him?
Thanks for sharing your experiences!
No experience, but the fact that they are using suit supply pictures on their website - as opposed to their own products - is not a great indication.
First of all, welcome to Hong Kong and I wish you have a wonderful experience in CUHK.
What's your budget? and style? Do you insist having full-canvassed as opposed to fused jacket?
