Amidst the clutter of New York Fashion Week shit I couldn't care less about there are a few menswear gems worth talking about. Ascot Chang is one of those gems. Known primarily as one of the finest tailors in all of Asia, Ascot Chang has been running their bespoke business since 1953 and proving that "Made in China", or "Made in Hong Kong" in this case, is not the stigma everyone preaches. The purpose of their F/W 2011 presentation was to showcase some of the new shirting and suiting they designed for the upcoming season. Styled by Michael Macko, who you might know as Valet's Editor at Large, F/W 2011 has two "stories" - an officer and a gentleman. I'd personally categorize it as Italian-esque alpine sportswear, if that makes any sense. Anyhow, the shirting fabric is primarily from Thomas Mason and the suiting was primarily Loro Piana. There were many highlights as you can see below, but for my money the cargo trousers and subtle camouflage pattern shirt were the best of the bunch. This won't be the last time you read about Ascot Chang on Sart Inc as I was lucky enough to get fitted for a custom shirt, which I plan on reviewing, naturally, when it is complete. A big thanks goes out to Michael Macko, Justin Chang and Thomas Yu for being such gracious hosts and doing exciting stuff during a week when I'm generally a negative nancy.
