In addition to the usual Vitale Barberis and no-name Italian fabrics, he had a good selection of Holland and Sherry books at very respectable prices. He also had a couple Lesser books at a surprisingly small premium over H&S. Obviously, the proof will be in the fit and workmanship of the jacket I ordered, but so far, Mr. Yao gets a solid A from me.
Gordon is an excellent tailor and certainly better than Chan.
I have been using him for a number years and would certainly NOT change.
