    Hello Mates,

    Does anyone know if AC still uses Gordon Yao to make their suits or do they use someone else. I thought I read that AC uses someone else.

    AC upgraded their website and their suits look very nice on their website.

    FWIW, I was in the NY branch not too long ago. They seem to have moved out of making RTW suits, as the place was chock full of Isaia (at truly eye popping prices). Only a couple AC suits/coats to be found. The salesman intimated that the focus is on bespoke (maybe he said MTM), and the Isaia stuff was up because they needed something on the racks.

    Who the MTM is made by, I don't know!

    Gordon Yao travels with Ascot Chang, so there is still some relationship between the two. However, I have no idea if GY makes suits for AC.

    I know that GY did but I thought someone on this board said differently even though GY still travels with AC on their tours.

    Gordon still makes their bespoke suits through where anything else comes from is questionable if it does not have a brand label in it.

    Thanks. I thought they currently went through another source like Y William Yu or another reputable HK tailor.

    Nelson of AC (who travel to US) and Gordon still travel together.
    However, According to both, Gordon no longer make the suits for AC (at least for the HK customer). Gordon said he just make suit for the old customers of AC. But I have no idea who make the suits for the new customers of the trip.

    AC has a factory in Mainland China making RTW suits. But all their bespoke suit is still make in HK.

    I didn't think that AC offered suits on their tours. Odd that AC would end their association with GY after so many years. Nelson and Gordon are both good people.

    I never knew that AC offered RTW suits.

    The RTW suits is for China Market with different label (something like TCNY, stand for Tony Chang, New York, Tony is the son of Ascot, IIRC), not sold in NY and HK. However, they used to sold the dead stock on Sogo sale when they still have a counter at Sogo.

    According to Gordon, he don't have the capacity to handle all the AC order, they are still in good relationship. Gordon stills refer his client to Nelson if they want to order shirts.

    That is correct, Tony is the son of Ascot Chang and I believe he is now in charge of the operation with his uncle.

    Wow, hard to imagine that AC has that many suit orders that Gordon can't have the capacity to fulfull. But I guess that AC has a good reputation. I thought their suits look better now than before-at least in the pics that I've seen so whomever they got they got a solid choice.

    When I was in HK several years ago, Gordon also told me to get shirts at AC. Said they were the best.
