Now it makes all sense. Congratulation to your wedding.
Thank you for answering me.
Cannot understand why suggest no cuffs??
How much did you pay?
Because cuffs are considered appropriate only for sport/leisure suits, not formal ones like his wedding suit.
Yes, I would be interested to know how much did you pay, or better if you know which is their price range.
Sure, thanks. I'll be waiting...
IIRC, he charged me 4800hkd (I only have my cc slip; but i don't remember how much deposit I left down) for a half lined Harrisons Mirage SC. Ricky's team only does full canvas. I didn't ask about the pants because the pattern that I picked wasn't meant to be made into pants IMO I do remember at the time (back in Nov); even if I were to do a suit with the mirage fabric, it'd come out to well under 1k Cdn.
The next two I'm commissioning are CMTs, so the price would be different. But back in early Feb I inquired about a Trofeo 2 pc and the quote was about 12-12.5k HKD.
Do you know how much is their 2pc and 3pc CMT?
Anyway I'll post my Chan suit when I can just came back from Rome.
I am very keen on getting a suit or blazer in racing green or similar hopsack, do you think most tailors would have something like that? I've never looked at the non worsted options they have and I'm not sure if they'd have a wide selection, in which case I might want to look into getting material myself for CMT. I imagine Chan would have a very wide selection and I might get it made from them at worst?
Can the tailor do something to make the pant drape better?
Is CMT always end-up cheaper ? Why you change to CMT?
I think the pants drape ok, just the end catch the shoelace make it look bad.
In HK, most of the time CMT will be cheaper, sometime much cheaper, if you know where to source the fabrics.
That is also why many tailors don't accept CMT anymore.
For example, I can get a "top end" craftmanship 2 pcs suit in Lesser 8/9 oz less than USD 1.2K
and "mid level" craftmanship" less than USD 0.8k.
Of course, if I deal with the workshops directly, I can even lower these prices.
Anyone familiar with getting fabrics in HK? I'm looking for a racing green/olive hopsack, does that sound like something that would be easy to find? I know very little about fabrics so I wouldn't even know which brand to look at for hopsack.
This one is close to olive:
If you limited it to hopsack, then not much too choose.
This does look pretty good actually, though I did have in mind something more lush this is nice too. Which line and pricerange is this?
I do prefer hopsack though, yeah. What brands should I look at?
