Hi Fishball, it's usually Peter, but he's not always available. Either he is out or he's busy with other customers. So many times Mr.Poon himself jumped in or one of the other guys. Don't get me wrong, they are not really rude and do their job. However, if you spend this amount of money on something you want to have a proactiveness to a certain degree. But instead, you need to push them for giving you advice and also they always sound like"ok, if you really really want...
Hi, I just came back from HK from another visit at AMHC. I bought two plain white shirts in Egyptian cotton, a blazer + grey pants and a sports-jacket + brown pants. White shirts were 850 each, the blazer was Super120, Huddersfield (I suspect), navy and together with the grey pants cost me 9.500 HKD. The sportsjacket was something with cashmere included and together with the pants cost me 10.500. So the average was 10k for each "suit". So far I am impressed by the...

anyone any further examples regarding prices in HK, please?
Let me compile my price-info so far: A Man Hing Cheong: - plain, Egyptian cotton, white, 850 HKD (ok, but could be better) - plain two-ply, twill, 950 HKD (very nice feeling) - Sea-island, I believe Stuart Mason, 1.100 HKD, average for three shirts - Sea-island, Alumo, 1.500 HKD The craftmanship is extremely nice and definitely comparable to any kind of brand-manufacturer. David's shirts: - Stuart Mason, 1.200 HKD + another 200 HKD for the 4mm buttons. - I...
