Hong Kong Shirt Makers - Page 4

post #46 of 56

@Penfold

 

Thanks for the recommendation! Was in HK the last week and got two shirts made. One in white house fabric and I really fancied the TM PoW check with red overcheck that you showed so ordered that up too. The funny thing is somehow his guys made the shirt up with blue overchecks!

 

The shirt fits great so I'm considering still ordering up the red overcheck one to pick up the next time I'm in HK!

Graly looks fantastic. I will be heading out to SSP to buy the buttons soon!

@Isochronous

 

He has MoP buttons now and includes them if you order shirts with TM fabric. He charges a small price if you want MoP buttons with shirts made up with house fabric

Ascot Chiang is the best shirt maker in HK by far
post #50 of 56

Went in yesterday. Initially indicated I was interested in a TM white shirt but then he advised that the particular TM fabric I was looking at would be a $1000 shirt, and that they had a house fabric which was very similar and only $450, so I should consider if I thought it was worth more than double. Then decided that since it was my first Graly shirt, I would go with house fabric first to see the fit. In fact he suggested I only order 1 to start with - appreciated that the service wasn't pushy and weren't trying to upsell.

 

I did forget to ask for MoP buttons with the house fabric shirt though. Will need to rectify that. How much do they charge as a button supplement on the house shirts?

 

Also, do you know if they stock any TM easy to iron fabric?

I am planning a trip to hk in June and would love to pay a visit to Ascot Chang. I have a few queries and if a fellow member can kindly provide answers to the following questions, that will be very helpful.

1. For new customers, is AC strict with the 3 shirts rule?
2. How much does it cost to have a shirt made using house fabric? How about TM fabric?
3. AC has 4 stores in HK. Is it recommended to visit the one at peninsula hotel?

Thank you.

I just visited 3 weeks ago. But i went to the Prince building location. Had a great time there.

 

1- I already plan on having 3 made so the rule doesn't bother me too much.

2- House fabric starts at hkd1195, hkd1395 and tops out at hkd1795. TM fabric starts at hkd2200 i think. I had all my 3 shirts done up in the cheapest house fabric (oxford).

Thanks takashi!

Does anyone has experience with TM / alumo fabric?

Does it feel better on the skin? Or does it last longer?

I'm really curious to find out more about high end shirting fabric. Happy to hear your experiences.

Thank you.

I have both, Alumo is waaaay smooth...sometimes maybe too thin depending on the model.

To me....not worth the crazy price difference. 

 

I got mine from the forum at a good deal so can't complaint.

I'm bumping this thread looking for some input from those who have used Graly in the past. I will be passing through HK later this year but will only be in town for 24 hours on each leg (land midday and depart midday the next) - with 2 weeks in between. Am I being too optimistic that I could arrange an initial fit on my first flight through and collect on the return layover?

I was in HK for 5 days earlier in the summer and used Graly. Got turnaround in 4 days, though that wouldn't have worked if the fit hadn't turned out fine first time (in that case he would have mailed the shirts after further alteration).

Got 4 shirts with Thos Mason fabric and for HKD900 I think they turned out pretty well - I will certainly use Graly again. His house fabrics are about half that price, but I didn't look over them when I was in the shop so couldn't speak for quality.

As others have commented here in the past, he is a bit lacking on the communication front - just be very clear up front what you want and how you want it (every detail) and it should be fine.
