Chan imposter? Now, that's funny! This is actually my 4th order from Chan, so I know how long their shipments usually take. In the past, they have been pretty good with the orders, though last year, one order took 3-1/2 months. I have also ordered from Gordon Yao during his US tour and my recent order took only 2 months. I have found the quality of his work to be comparable with Chan's. So that is why I am considering giving more of my business to Gordon...
I am glad I skipped the March tour as my November tour order still has not shipped. Waiting over 4 months for delivery seems a bit extreme. Their email responses are useless as they send out a standard canned reply saying your order will be shipped next week over and over again. Time to give other travelling tailors some business... Gordon Yao will benefit from Chan's poor customer service.
I see a lot of non-iron shirt haters here. Do anyone of you travel routinely for business? Just curious since that is when the non-iron shirts are best for so you don't have to spend time irong your shirts in your hotel rooms before business meetings when you are travelling for business.

In 90 degree weather, it doesn't make a difference if you are wearing 8-9 oz vs. 9-10 oz Minni Frescos, as they are both too warm for me. I usually start wearing them when the temp are around 70-80. IME, the 9-10 oz Minni Frescos crease less and are my preferred weight for Frescos.

It works well with suits and is my everyday watch. It is a bit thicker than I like, but is a solid watch. I just make sure to order all my dress shirts with the wrist width a little wider on that side.
Just curious if anyone has received their orders from the November tour...

I also just started wearing Charles Tyrwhitt non iron slim fits. they are very good and i pay the usual 4/$199 How do the CT slim fit shirts compare to the BB slim fit shirts in terms of fit? Are they just as blousy?

Should be able to get a solid black oxford second for low two hundreds from AE. If your budget is $500, you have enough for two pairs so you can rotate and alternate styles. +1 You can get a black Park Avenue and a dark brown Fifth Avenue for $500. You can go for...
