Those are HKD though, not US $$ so jacket @ $2,700 = $360 USD whereas @ $3,700 = $500
I think the English tailors are more than that, no?

If you want a sharp clear collar, you better got the fused one. Otherwise you have to stach the collar. I think the fusing get popular since no one want to do staching.
Sorry, I'm still jet lagged and I misread what you wrote initially and I thought I edited my reply.
Does that mean you may only get the collar to roll with unfused collars?

I didn't ask if they did an unfused or fused collar. I don't know how to check on my shirt if it is fused or unfused.
The Chan's I have (non-tour, HK) are quite good. They have held up much better than my AC (the buttons are significantly bigger/better as well). After 1.5 to 2 years, my AC shirts have developed bubbling on the collars. I wash/iron my shirts myself.
I emailed AC and they said it should not have happened and want me to bring my shirts to them to be fixed by their machine. If they cannot be fixed, the charge for new collars (pending fabrics) is 210 HKD each. ...
After ironing flat, the fabric bunches like that after a few minutes... the shirt is by Ascot Chang which has a strong reputation.
The collar does not appear to be falling off by the collars on all my AC shirts are like that now.
