    I saw a large ad recently in the Wall Street Journal from a traveling Hong Kong custom tailoring company called Hong Kong Grand. They seem to visit frequently a good number of locations on the East Coast. Does anyone know anything about them or have any experiences with them?

    I just got my shirts from him (my first MTM). I would most definitely implore you to stay away from the guy.

    I must admit that his prices are fairly decent ($60 a shirt). However, the quality is very low. Here are some observations:

    -Matching stripes/checks at shoulders for the shirt
    -Single-needle stitching
    -Buttons look like cheap plastic -even cheaper than my $30 shirts. I noticed them immediately after taking them out of the bag.
    -Fused collars that are extremely stiff
    -Decent fit but he did not account for shrinking
    -No split yoke
