A question that hasn't been addressed in the last few pages... Has anyone used any of the HK tailors for more casual non-wool suits? I've got this strange desire to have a 3-piece corduroy suit, and will probably want a seersucker one once the weather starts warming up. I've been to Chan and Yao before for wool suits and of course the quality has been great but I'm a bit hesitant to pay their workmanship costs for a couple of fun / casual suits. Any recommendations?

So Yao just takes the measurements, sends them to Ascot Chang, and then attaches his own label to them? It seems like a roundabout exercise. If that's the case, the next time I'll just go to Ascot Chang and have them made, there was one very close to my office! Would have saved me the 30 minute trek to Yao's...
I was recently on a trip to Hong Kong as well, and had a three-piece suit made by Chan and a set of 8 shirts made by Yao. Yao's shirts will cost you about $80 each, and he was able to get my order out pretty quickly. I was really pleased with the construction and fit of the shirts, so I do recommend Yao for your shirtings. For the Chan suit, I paid about $1750 for a three piece suit done in Scabal 130. For $1500, I believe you can get a two piece in Loro Piana or...
