    I have been interested for some time in trying a suit from one of the traveling Asian tailors, particularly Raja Fashions and WW Chan, both of whom will be visiting the DC area in the next few weeks.

    There are several threads that discuss other members' experiences with fittings and choices with regard to jackets, but not so much with regard to pants. I am curious as to how much leeway you have with these tailors when it comes to choosing a pants style - I am sure you can choose between pleated/flat front and cuffed/uncuffed, but can you get more specific than that?

    I favor low-rise, slim-cut trousers and I would only buy a suit from one of these houses if I can get the pants exactly how I want them - if they have a house cut for pants I would probably not be interested.

    I'm not sure how much Chan can do, but I imagine they are pretty versatile. House style is on the slimmer side anyways, IMO; and the rise was lower than I expected. I think the tailor notes where you wear your pants and notes the best rise accordingly. If you know the rise length you could definitely specify it. Great pants, Chan makes, BTW.
