So I can say that the 3 pieces rule is gone and I am not a VIP, in fact I am just a first timer. I went their Peninsula shop.

I quite like them but I have a sloping shoulder on right side and am still trying to fix the pattern.

I don't think they've ever held firm on the 3 shirt rule. My first order was for 2 shirts as well.

Sorry for the newbie question: how long does it take to have a shirt made at AC? I'm in HK next month for 5 days. Thanks.

5 days is ok.

Thanks.

You might want to get the process started early, as it's useful to "test out" the first shirt and wash it a few times to see how it fits. The rest of your order can be made once you approve of the first shirt.

Of course, you can also get the full order delivered at the same time if you're in a rush.

I appreciate this tip and any others you might have for ordering shirts from AC. Thanks.

If this is your first time ordering custom clothes, just remember to stand naturally, both when getting measured and when evaluating whether the test shirt (and subsequent shirts) fit. It's also a good idea to have a tailor evaluate the fit in the end. Just tell them some of your general concerns, and go with their advice.

My guess is that given your timeline, you'll need to get measured immediately, get a test shirt, wash and dry it a few times (might be hard since, IMO, you don't want to throw shirts in the dryer), and then try it on so you can have the tailor evaluate. The rest of your order can be then delivered to you by mail.

But you can also have the entire order delivered at once too.

With only 5 days, and if I get measured on day 1, how long will it take to get the test shirt? I'm assuming I can get at least 1 fitting in during my time there. If the fitting is not complicated, can they complete an order of 3-4 shirts before I depart? Thanks again.

I had my test shirt on Day 3 afternoon.

You should probably ask Ascot Chang.

I've sent AC a couple of emails. No response.
