Should I also inquire with Ascot Chang and Anto? I inquired with Ascot Chang and I was told I need to put in an order with no less than 4 shirts, starting at $200 per shirt.

I don't mind the 4 order minimum for Ascot Chang, but I'm kind of hesitant because I don't know what to expect since it will be my first time requesting their service.


Wow. Freddy must be doing well to turn down business.

The shirts are a bit cheaper for AC when they do their tours and the minumum is 3 on tour.

Come on, bro. I was just kidding. Had I done that, he would probably put me on his permanent blacklist.

Just curious...do you folks stay with one person or do you try the water out a bit and stuff done from several folks?

By the end of the year I hope to acquire about 10 nice shirts (not necessary by 1 person). These shirts will be worn on my days off, and not for actual work so I'm not in a real hurry here.

In the last year I have renewed my wardrobe with footwear, trousers, and outerwear. I put shirts off because I have the hardest time finding shirts that fit me nicely.

IMHO i would stick with one shirtmaker. You spend all this time and money nailing down the fit and to start all over again with another shirtmaker can be frustrating and expensive. Freddy V. has a good amount of fabrics...Thomas Mason, G&R and Alumo.

If you still dont find what you're looking for, he can order from his fabric books.

I called Freddy today to inquire about his services, and unfortunately, he's still in a holding pattern wrt new clients for another 4 to 5 months...crap. I travel to LA at least once a month so I thought it would be a good opportunity given that I need some new shirts. However, not to be. Given the time frame I called MyTailor to ask a few questions...nice people, and indicated that they had a 6 to 8 week turnaround time. Since I was hoping to commission some linen or linen/cotton mixes it would seem that at best I wouldn't receive these until the end of summer...bummer. It would seem that off the rack's the only way to go for me unfortunately.

Bumping this thread. Freddy V. isn't taking any new customers. I'm wondering if anyone has any new suggestions for the LA area? Thanks.

I can't comment on Lim, but he's at Freddy's prices for a shirt made with Thomas Mason SIlverline cloth. It's too bad Freddy is not taking new clients right now. Anto's shirts are some of the best you can get, but the last time I spoke to them, they were at a 6 shirt minimum to start and IIRC, $250 starting price per shirt. If you're willing to pay the price, their shirts are about as good as you're going to get here in L.A. Ascot Chang makes a good shirt also, but for their prices, I think you're getting a little less bang for the buck than the others. IMHO, Anto makes a better shirt.
