Picked up my finished Yao suit yesterday. The basis for comparison isn't totally straightforward, because the Y William Yu suit in the photos was my second suit from them and because it's a much heavier, more workable fabric.
YWY suit below is a two button SB in 13 oz Holland & Sherry worsted, Book HS1165 Cloth 651718. It is fully canvassed and was $9000 HKD.
The suit from Gordon Yao is a 3r2 SB in Minnis Fresco I 0500 and is only 7-8 oz and is my first suit from GY. It is also fully canvassed and was $14430 HKD. In both cases the tailors were given plenty of time and I had three fittings, though on both occasions I walked out of the last fitting wearing the finished suit.
The major problem with the YWY is the puckering of material in the upper chest. But for that I think YWY would win by virtue of price.
