Sams is simply a tourist oriented rag shop. Far better to go to Chan (upstairs), Gordon Yao or William Yu on Mody Road.
As with everything discussed in this forum, it's a question of value-for-money, which so many people on SF keep forgetting.
I trust Chan makes better shirts than Sam's (haven't tried Chan), but at a completely different price point as well. I have a Sam's shirt which cost next to nothing - something like the equivalent of 30 euros, if I remember rightly - and while the fit is questionable, the fabric and the construction are not bad at all considering the price. So my advice would be, if you have a well-fitting shirt and are looking to save money, get Sam's to duplicate that shirt. The result will cost less than Chan and may well last you longer than the usual Jantzen shirts (a one-time revered SF address) which, while well-constructed and just about as cheap as it gets in Hong Kong - are made from the worst fabrics imaginable.
