I recently ordered two pairs of pants and four shirts from WW Chan, after being measured by Patrick Chu on his San Francisco visit. Yesterday, I received the first sample shirt and pair of pants.

I've washed the shirt once (on delicate, warm) and tumbled dry on delicate setting for 20 minutes. I've also ironed it. Here's how it looks now after a morning commute to work. These pics were taken with an iPhone, so apologies for the low-res:






Here are some pics of just the pants:





To my eye, there is too much fabric around the chest, and perhaps the sleeves are bit too long. The pants might also be a tad slimmer from the thigh down.

What do you guys think? What adjustments should I ask for the next batch of the order?

The first thing I noticed is that the stomach is too big on the shirt. The chest may also be an inch too big, but the stomach is probably 2 inches too big at least. The pants seem to be riding up a bit in back of the seat, and possibly a bit in the front, so the rise might need to be a bit longer.

Stylistically you seem to have a rather thin neck, although I'm not sure of your face shape but possibly a slightly more spread collar would be in order.

suggestions

Aside from the former observations, I would suggest 1/4 inch less on the sleeves... you want the sleeve to fall right where the base of your palm meets the wrist (if you look at your palm, there's a line deviding the "meat" of your palm from your wrist).
Go with a french collar, favored by the Italians for its versatility and probably considered a "semi-spread" in America.
Also, if you used all of the belt-loops in your trousers, the pants may have a better looking fit. Post more pictures where you haven't skipped the belt-loops under your kidneys.
The break of the trousers at the shin, however, looks very nice.

I think the shirt looks excellent. Perhaps a touch more fabric than necessary around the mid-section, but not worth fixing on this shirt because it's so minor. Just make the change on the next order. Can't see the shape of your face, but stick with the collar you like and don't pick a different one just because someone says so.

We are of a different generation, you and I.

It would seem there is a bit too much fabric under the arms and the shirt should taper more in the waist. For my tastes you are wearing your pants too low which gives a younger but less cared for look. I would also go with double pleated pants if I were you (would give you more presence in the upper leg region) but then again I like the classique look.

Still in all, not too bad.

Overall, not bad.
I agree with the others that said there is too much excess fabric in the chest and stomach. I also prefer my shirts a bit more tapered at the waist, but your shirts aren't horrible at waist.
The pants aren't too bad. I would have probably have gotten a slightly higher rise and a bit more slimmer leg.
