Thanks for sharing your experience!!The Marol Trunk Show was nice. It's located in A penthouse UNIT of 1 KING Hotel (forgot the hotel name).
Quite a wide range of selection on fabric, collar type, cuff type, styles. I wasn't planning to get any but ends up getting a MTM shirt.
I don't know too much about shirt construction, so cannot comment too much, but they are come with a lot of handmade details, high arm whole, very nice shape on me even for the RTWs. I didn't count but there's a couple books of fabric to choose, big books, I would assume there's in total of 100+?
I choose a convertible one piece collar, with Cocktail Cuff, in light blue and blue Stripe Fabric.

Also had a chat with Pino Peluso, seems very unassuming and humble, I didn't plan to do one at the moment, but I have to say I am indeed interested, given Pino will regularly come to Canada for fitting/ trunk shows, I took measurement with him in case I am planning to do one in the future.

Kenji ties are nice, can tell they are handmade for sure, as they are not 100% symmetric... Very light, I can image the nice shape when wind blows.

Ends up going with below style with museum calf (botton) and red sude (top), with a bit more Brogue details, in 74945 last.

In general I think Bo is a very nice guy, not pushy at all, I feel very comfortable in the event. He definitely knows his shirting business, I get to explore quite a lot about shirts. (But I still don't think ~ 300 EUR shirt is something I can keep doing... Probably just try one to know what it is.)
I also like his choice in ties, shoes, and suits in this trunk show.
Something I don't really like about is the selection of choice in shoes and suiting/ jacketing bespoke:
There's only 8 or 9 shoes (not pairs, each one comes with one foot only...) that I can try on, in fact, only 3 of them are in simlar size, I assume some customer may not even be able to find one to try. As I am someone who concerns about fitting and sizing a lot, it didn't give me enough confidence to be honest, however, Bo is willing to forward my measurement info (that I used for AM MTM) to the shoemaker, plus the addition fitting, otherwise I probably wouldn't order one.
There's only 5 books of fabric to choose. Big books though, but I would still think there's not enough.. consider this is at ~ 3000 EUR price point.
This will be a permanent location for Marol, in the future it would be by appointment basis, Bo himself can always take measurement for you, and will host trunk show occasionally.
