My Este Bartin tailored shirts, the buttons kept dropping out due to poor stitching. I had the buttons re-stitched elsewhere and no more issue now.

That's rather bad.

The first issue I had was the back darts weren't stitched properly. The first time I worn my shirt, the back darts unstitched on its own and it was rather embarassing as I was already in the office. I am slim built so it's definitely not due to body fats.

The second issue I had was thread securing the buttons came out on its own. Not one button, not one occasion, but a few buttons over several occasions.

Even though they were prompt in responding via Whatsapp on my issues and provided free sewing, it's rather inconvenient for me to travel through and forth just for the repair work.

I went to a alteration shop and have my buttons re-sewed, didn't face any issue thereafter. I believe their tailor isn't doing a good job and QC is non-existent.

well, that said, the pants i made with them were pretty decent for that price point.

Hi guys, are there any local tailors that will make shirts or suits from fabrics that I bought on my own?
Mate, any results with your "Bring Your Own Fabric" quest?

How does the pricing work in this case with Lai En when you bring your own fabric?

Curious about the pricing too.
I think Seamless Bespoke (Lusso) can tailor shirts if you bring your own fabric as well.
