    Hi guys, I'm new here but have been reading SF for quite some time now (especially in the recent few months).

    I work in London but will be in Shanghai from November 2012 January 2013 and am considering to get a suit made by Chan. I have no previous bespoke experience. My current suits are Zegna milano which costed around £700 including tailoring and a few Hugo Boss suits costing around £300 each (I know these are fused...).

    My question is should I go for Chan in Shanghai or should I stick to cheap RTW for a few more years (currently in my third year of work, salary+bonus is around £75,000)? My parent live in Shanghai and they think I shouldn't go bespoke at this age (I admit I still ask for advice from my parents).

    Thanks

    Chan will not charge you a lot more than what you've paid for your Zegna Milano for a basic VBC super 110, so go for it. They have 2 shops here in Shanghai.
    By the way, welcome to Shanghai (where I live).

    Is this pre, or post tax? Crazy London taxes.

    depends how much you care about your clothing and your appearance, and your finances. thats not something we can or should answer for you.

    Why not just start the process in London when they are traveling?
