Mediocre – I decided to venture out and try Kenny/Wong's for a few shirts to have made and see how I liked them.
Service was good, but I feel like the could have taken a little more attention to detail during the measurements. Other tailors I've went to spent more time taking second measurements (with my shirt off) and regular pictures of me wearing regular clothes to ensure an adequate norm fit. The selection was about normal for similar tailors in the city.
I was promised the shirts in 2.5 weeks, but since it wasn't a rush for me gave them 3.5-4 weeks before I checked in. I called after 3.5 weeks and as told it would be another 5 days. I finally received my shirts and found the quality to be mediocre. The material used was the same as the swatch and was good, it was the make and design of the shirt that I was unhappy with. Perhaps I should have been more vocal during measurements to go over the details of little things, like collar tips (not actual collar style that was covered), thickness of french cuffs, style of sleeves, width of bottom, etc.
The price was decent, cheaper (only by a few dollars) than others I have been to in the city, but I would honestly say I would probably not go back to Wong's as there are a number of better tailors in both selection and final product in the city for the same, if not only a slightly higher price.
Good alterations – I took 4 expensive (Boss Selection) suits in to have the pants finished and waist let out and the jacket altered. I only mention the price of the suits to help back up the confidence I had in their work. Every time I've been in it's always very busy. They seem to do a lot of bespoke suits and shirts (custom to those from these shores!) which has to be a good sign.
My suits fit perfectly and I'll go back again, and recommend to anyone.
