Andrew Buttery replied to Andrew Sousa's discussion Dress Shoes in the group Sartorialists
"The one pair work shoes that have lasted the longest for me are a pair of Doc Martens. However, they have the rubber sole rather than a more traditional and dressy leather sole, so they might not be suitable for all workplaces… Other things…"

"Apologiews on the delay for the update - my travels have not been so Internet friendly recently... Second fitting took place on Friday (a couple of days after the first fitting). The suits were complete and looked great. William Cheng first... the…"

Andrew Buttery replied to Andrew Buttery's discussion One piece or two? in the group Sartorialists
"I found out a few more reasons why when I had a couple of suits made recently... 1. As there is not centre seam then a centre vent is not possible. I would imagine that you probably could create one but the tailors I was dealing with in Hong Kong…"

Matthew Carrick replied to Andrew Buttery's discussion One piece or two? in the group Sartorialists
"This is pure conjecture, but I'd imagine that a two-piece would be easier to tailor (for off-the-rack suits) or re-tailor should you need the jacket taken in or out at some point."

Andrew Buttery replied to Thad's discussion Bespoke Clothing in the group Sartorialists
"BTW: I did some comparision shopping yesterday as well. You can get suits/shirts done cheaper that I have e.g. HKD 1399 (approx USD 180) for wool suit, two matching shirts and ties. Since I've had one or two dodgy tailor experiences in the…"

Andrew Buttery replied to Thad's discussion Bespoke Clothing in the group Sartorialists
"First fitting today. LA Elite was first. After a bit of a wait for the tailor to arrive which was filled with a chat with George about Bombay (now Mumbai) and how he has been in Hong Kong for 44 years history in Hong Kong. Then a discussion about…"

Andrew Buttery replied to Thad's discussion Bespoke Clothing in the group Sartorialists
"OK today was the first step. Found both tailors without too much trouble. OF the two William Cheng was much more professional. Well organised shop, tidy; while LA Elite reminded me of an Indian tailors shop - bolts of fabric everywhere, stuff piled…"

Andrew Buttery replied to Thad's discussion Bespoke Clothing in the group Sartorialists
"I have had two tailors recommended - William Cheng and LA Elite, both in Tsim Sha Tsui. Suit wise, I have a budget and I'll see how many I can get ;) #1 Light grey wool, subtle pinstripe, three button, side vents, one piece back, four sleeve…"

Andrew Buttery replied to Thad's discussion Bespoke Clothing in the group Sartorialists
"Hmmm... Internet suits. Don't think so. Firstly, I want to see and feel the cloth that I'm going to be wearing in person. Viewing something on a monitor is not the same as running it through your hands and lying different options side by…"

Andrew Buttery replied to Andrew Buttery's discussion One piece or two? in the group Sartorialists
"OK, I asked the friend who put me onto tailored suits. He heard about one-piece backs from another friend, who read it in a book that it was common in the 60's to have this cut. Both are involved in the music scene from that era and so that…"

"Gentlemen, I have a number of suits all, most made to measure. As I work in a bank most are single breasted, pin strips in dark colours (navy, chrcoal and black). In the past I have had tailored suits and I loved them, though the tailor I used to…"

Is this negligence?

I've been working in a department store (Belk) inside of a mall for almost three years now. I've never had any security problems and I've always felt safe up until last Friday. I departed from school around 2:20 and I arrived at work at 2:40pm for my 3 o'clock shift. Belk employees have to park on the third floor of the parking deck which I've been doing. On this particular day, the deck was a bit fuller than usual due to the Easter weekend so I parked in the very back of the deck against the…See More
