Especially if their suits are still done by Gordon Yao. That would be a great deal for $600-700.

Id say thats a great deal, and will be a lot of fun going in there checking out their books of fabrics! the danger is that youll get a look at some of the higher priced books, and before you know it those $65 shirts turn into $175 shirts....

I've not heard such good things about AC. However, can anyone who has used them comment on the base fabrics? I would do it for $65-70 a shirt, but probably not more than that. Would it even be worthwhile to consider?

+1, I think it's worth chancing at 65-70, knowing what that might buy you in RTW, or compared with the adventure that is Jantzen.

C has the most extensive collection of fabrics of any shirtmaker I know- the most expensive being about $1200 for 220's. The first shirt they did for me was adequate, and it took 3 attempts to get it precise, but they do quick and consistent work. They also do a shirt with hand finished seams for an extra $200 or so.

Damn, I wish I were graduating college this year. I'm only high school class of '11, haha. Awesome deal, though.

I don't know that I could trust them with my clothing seeing that they don't know plurals don't take commas
