Found these guys a little bit to the side in Woodbridge. If you are able to go to the area I would def recommend to try them out. Tried some shirts and now did a suit. What do you guys think?

Looks very clean! Are they a bespoke or MTM place?

I don't think it looks good (stiff, boxy, and short?), especially with those light-coloured buttons...

ASCOT CHANG SUIT

This suit is from Ascot Chang, IFC Mall location. Both suit and shirt were commissioned and paid for. Measured by the salesman in the morning, first basted fitting was 4 days later, with a full basted jacket (instead of half sleeves like at other places). Suit was received 5 weeks after order through the post.

Had the suit pressed, so any suit wrinkling should be solely due to fit. Shirt was laundered at home and dried in the machine, but no ironing was done. Pictures are overexposed to show as much detail as possible. The first four pictures are with the shirt and trousers alone, the fifth and sixth picture shows the tightness of the trousers around the thighs, and the last four are the full suit buttoned up...
This ensemble looks wayyyyyy better fitting than your previous ones.

Fit feedback welcome! Please tear into every little detail if you will.
Your pants are still too tight. Look at the bunching just underneath your buttocks.
Jacket sleeves are again too long.
The horizontal lines just beneath the back of your neck shows that the jacket was made poorly for your stance.

Hard to believe all these suits you're getting are bespoke.

That's the nature of HK quick tailoring. Lesson learned.

I have a couple of questions for those dropping >$1000 at HR: how many of these suits do you own? How often do you wear them? How many suits are in your regular rotation generally?

Thanks!

I'd probably classify them as customized MTM with immediate local tailor feedback, if you're local. Fitter + Cutter could be the same person if you're lucky. In my case, it was not.
