Just for knowledge-sharing: I also visited some tailors on the Kowloon side for price comparison. I checked Tak Tak tailors in the Langham hotel: a really ridiculous shop probably based on walk-ins from the hotel which have no clue about prices. I asked the entry-price which were quoted at 7.000 HKD, which seemed normal. But then I asked which cloth they use and it was all complete no-name crap which felt and looked really awful. For Loro Piana "four seasons" (which I...
another review of AMHC, Y William Yu and this time newly David's shirts: I refitted my suits from AMHC and YWY, much better now, especially the YWY one. Then I added a few more shirts for which I wanted to share some prices with the crowd here: AMHC: two sea-island Alumo shirts, price was 1.500 HKD each, the most expensive of them all. I was in a slight rush, so I couldn't spend too much time choosing cheaper ones. They had cheaper ones, but I like the Alumo cloth...
Hope it's not too late: go to A Man Hing Cheong in the Mandarin Oriental, awesome quality, cut/fit and service. A bit more price, but well worth the money! I will be going there again this Thursday!

Does anybody know where they can be acquired or if there is any special story behind them?
thanks for that. Honestly, I am not that happy with the fit of the tux. looks too big, not fitted enough, everything needs one more fitting, but in fact i only had one fitting with it anyway. and i am standing on a newspaper, because in korea you dont' wear streetshoes inside apartments. yes, may sound strange... to lowdnes - i like them very much, but i wouldn't accept a suit without a serious number of fittings. that's really taking too big of a risk for a...
sorry, forgot the pic's........
Hi, here is my tux just purchased this week, not from WW Chan, but from Y William Yu, which is a nother high-end HK tailor. Please note that I haven't worn it "properly", as I don't have a bow-tie and cummerbund in my place here. So the wow-effect is not as big as expected. Anyway, I am eager to hear your opinion. I am also posting my thread on Y William Yu and A Man Hing Cheong for suits and shirts in general: http://www.styleforum.net/forumdisplay.php?f=5

I have 3 Chan suits, there are all fantastic, but I wanted to make sure I didn't miss any details that are specific to tux. I am currently thinking: - Black (although I need advice between this and...
Ok guys, another chapter of mine with YWY: Tuxedo! I went there two weeks ago, as I had a business-trip in Hong Kong. I didn't order the tux right away, as I was not sure when/if I need it these days. However, last time in January their cutter Andy showed me the standard cloth (well, black!) and the price of 7.200 HKD. I called a week later and ordered over phone. Then during my last week's trip I had one fitting and the whole thing was then mailed to me only a few days...
