Hello,

Off the back of a recommendation from a relative who was an old customer, I was hoping to pay Takly shirtmakers a visit when I'm in Hong Kong in a few weeks. However, comments on here and elsewhere seem to imply that they've closed down. Anyone know if they're still in business?

Thanks in advance!

No. They are very much going strong. It's a small operation, anyway. But Dyon Chan, the owner is presently in the US taking orders. I expect to see him in Knoxville next week. Meticulous service, integrity and really great piece goods at a third the price of the British makers. And make no mistake, a middle aged lawyer and politician, I've worn them all. Takly is tasteful, and, that word again, meticulous. So, do stop. I've done business with Ascot Chang, too and his stuff is really nice. But no nicer than Takly, and Takly is less expensive by 25%. Takly makes shirts for the Bush Family of Texas. Yes. Those people. Oh. And if you want a suit, or jacket, bespoke, Takly will make you one for around $1200 that doesn't have a machine stitch in it unless it's the straight seams. They are like Hunstman, I swear it. And I like Huntsman a lot. You can deal with Mr. Chan with confidence. In twenty five years he has not let me or any of my friends down.

They close down their front shop few years ago.
They mostly do overseas orders and referal from other customers.

The elder Bush wore/wears Ascot Chang.

Is there a number to reach them or a website to see their current schedule tour?
