All custom orders from AC are made in a factory in Hong Kong (in Hung Hom if anyone knows where that is). Some ready-made items are made in China where labour costs are lower and quality is not as demanding. Thus, custom orders in Hong Kong could take as little as 2 to 3 days, alterations within a week. There is also a alteration-ist stationed at the Central store, where he does all the alterations if you are purchasing a Brioni through AC. The minimum order in Hong Kong is 3 shirts, although after a while, it is kind of flexible. Three main classes of fabrics: DJ Anderson, Thomas Mason, and other unknown mills. DJAs are the most expensive, usually starting at around super 150s (as a rough guide for fabric character), for around US$320 or so. TM is a little cheaper, and in my opinion, wears better too (don't crease easily, etc.), and starting from Super 120s at around US$160 or so. My usual order, which is TM super 150s, costs around US$200. Other fabrics, which are personally chosen by Ascot Chang's son (who is in charge of the company now together with an uncle), are from cheaper mills in Italy and all over. I tried one shirt from that book and while it was a pattern I like, the fabric is noticeably of a lower quality (rough on the skin, prone to creases, stiffer drape), and they start at mere US$120. Their 'default' buttons are like those from T&A, and if you request 3mm pearl buttons, another US$10. I don't like the buttons they have, as they are not high quality MOP. They appear a bit yellowish, almost like troca. US charges about 30% import duty (if my information is up to date) on all cotton goods, so prices in US will be at least 30% higher. I have my personal opinions on AC, but generally speaking, they make a splendid shirt. I think I posted some pictures earlier.
