    If the price is HK$5000 for a jacket, then I absolutely will not try him. I will rather pay a little higher price to Baromon.

    Have you tried Baramon yet? I believe you have isnt it?

    I think young fad like me can't summon the grand old master at Baramon.

    Why not post out the photo of db waist coat, gun cuff jacket and fishtail trousers? I am not qualify to judge the crastmanship between Mr Hui and Baramon. But Mr Hui's flexibility to customer request is one of the best.

    I did post them before in the forum. My contribution has probably fade away.



    I think at least you should give 'cool wool' range and the 9-10oz jacketing a try.
    Their Classic 11-12 and 12-13oz stuff is a also pretty good for tailoring, in particular they are very quick to gain back shape after wear.

    I've used them for 5+ years with no complaints; they perform and look better than the Harrison's I've tried. I've never seen a negative comment about them, I think the old rich snobs ignore Dugdale because it's inexpensive and doesn't have the status symbol of more expensive mills, rather than any legitimate concern about quality.

    Does Hui have a website?

    Yes, I did try Baromon, and I don't know did I posted the photo in this thread or not.

    Thank you for your information about Dugdale Brothers fabric, I am going to get them soon.

    Maybe not but need to confirm by Add911. It is a small tailor shop with around 4 people including Mr Hui, master cutter / coat maker, another 2 two guys plus one old lady. As I heard before, they have less than 200 suits per year. I believe almost everything made inside the shop.

    Basically every tailored garments are made in the shop with the same people except sewing up the shirts.

    Mr Hui also does the cutting and pre shrinking for shirts as well.

    No contracter is invloved in their shop. Always the same few old chap and buttonhole lady.

    I love that fact the preconcepted Harrison and Minnis were used to be a low end fabric brand.

    The real luxury brand in my mind are tailor and lodge, Scabal, Dormeuil and Fintex
