Ascot Chang was just in town and that is the route I am taking. It is especially nice because I got measured here and will be in Hong Kong in a few months to get the fit right and pick up my shirts. And one thing I didn't realize AC does is make a sample shirt before they actually make the shirts you order. However, I'm pretty sure they only do this if you are going to be going through HK or maybe one of their store locations.
Thanks for that article, I haven't seen that yet.
I am about to order several shirts worth of fabric from the Acorn Grange range as it seems like a great deal but wanted to get various opinions on the fabric and how it compares to other fabrics first. If you have any experience, please share. Thanks in advance.
And does anybody have a contact email address for Acorn? I have never had luck with the one listed on their website and previously just assumed that it was because they didn't sell to the general public.

So, the price difference per (comparable) shirt is more like $50. Not large, but meaningful. Very surprised...

Also, keep in mind that some shirtmakers want extra fabric for CMT in order to be safe. The shirtmakers I talked to said that 3.25 is a good length for someone 6' and normal build. Thanks, and I still...
Excellent, I sent an email and look forward to hearing back. I am no expert in buying shirt fabric but those sound like excellent prices for Acorn.
So Acorn will sell to the general public?
