    I don't know who stock Fresco in house except Peter Lee.
    But to order is quite easy, it take 3 working days, I think.
    I don't have personal experience with TPR.
    I checked their product few years ago (3-4yrs), their products back then was so-so. Nothing worth to talk with. and price was not attactive either.
    I will go to a fitting with my friend soon, so may be I can report back what I have seen later.

    Many tailors are friends of mine.
    It is not fair for me to comment, since I may be bias.
    And I think Peter have enough recommendations, hahaha.

    I did visit the shop last month after reading post from here. Judging from the finished products and the shop enviroment. Hard to accept the price level which he offered to me. HK$7,800 for 2 pc fresco on a slim guy.

    Maybe finished products are similar. To me, it is a coca cola in canteen charge the same price as a nice restaurant.

    I think for the environment, DB can't be called nice restaurant, just a little bit better than PL.:crackup:

    Interesting. I thought it's always the other way round.
    You sure they are apple to apple comparison in respect of suit construction?

    So what do you expect for that price?
    And price should be always the same for everyone right?


    If someone know any tailor shop offer lower price with so so quality. Please tell me and I will give it a try.

    I tried PT and its not bad, and wanna try others.

    Give moda a try maybe? Their shirts are pretty decent, and the few suits I've seen were o-kay. Their price range is quite low.

    As a first bespoke timer, really have no idea of what should I expect for the price.

    PT ?? = Peter Lee ??
