By this time, I must have 15 to 20 shirts by Chan, in Thomas Mason and Acorn fabrics. The fit is, as expected, impeccable. They've held up well and, as is to be expected, feel comfortable, but that's partly due to the fabrics. I haven't used Ascot Chang (although before my last visit to Chan, I did consider giving AC a try) or Hemrajani, nor do I have the patience to try my luck with Jantzen.
I, too, am starting to take an interest in these (getting in touch with my feminine side, I suppose...). Liberty of London have some nice designs, but I have yet to acquire any of them and so am unable to comment on the styling. For fabrics, Acorn has a few floral designs (not all of which would be appropriate for a man's shirt, at least in my view) if you can avail of CMT.

I posted the following a few months ago, not sure about the quality as I haven't tried them: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=185040

I cannot emphasize strongly enough that the above posters are correct - this place is hopeless for quality tailoring (except, possibly, for Ascot Chang in the Makati Shang, which I have never used). I go to Hong Kong for all my tailoring requirements, as do most of the well dressed men here.
