Affordable Tailor in Hong Kong - Page 2

post #16 of 28
There are a couple of tailors I can suggest. I haven't used either of them yet but I plan to as I have heard good things about them.

1. Winston Co. I emailed the owner Raymond Lo a few days ago enquiring about shirts and he is mailing me some fabric swatches to look at. His price is $39 USD per shirt inclusive of postage.
I am guessing his suits will cost less than your budgeted amount.
raymondlo@winstontailor.com.hk

2. David Chow of DC Mohex fashions. He is doing a US tour and I plan to meet him in the San Francisco area next week. I plan to have a sports jacket(or 2, or 3, who knows ) made.
I heard he has suits in the $300-$500 USD range.

I wouldn't say that. I have 5 Canali and 2 WW Chan suits. Canali's style and cut are more to my liking than Chan.

another fan of Peter Lee - must definitely be worth a visit then! Where is tassels by the way? I do need a new pair of black oxford Church's... Do you know if Church's new city range (London/Hong Kong/Paris/NY etc) is available in Hong Kong? They are available in London but haven't been able to find out online if they are out in HK yet.

Some SFers go to Peter Lee and have good result, but my personal experience is different. Peter is a nice guy to deal with, and try his best to help, but may be I am just too diffcult to fit. My jacket and pants cut are both off. His workmanship is just so-so, and his price is going up and up as I know of. Is that value for money? It depend on where you from, for me, not so.

Not sure if teddieriley was really so unjustified in his responses. Not only did I think they were very funny, but he has a point in that your original question was, with so much discussion on this forum on the topic, somewhat naive. You could have at least indicated that you had done some research yourself on this forum as opposed to - what some people like to do here - have SF members just rehash it for you. In any case, I think he's been pretty helpful again...

I have to confirm on that as when I went to Peter Lee today, he quoted me 3500HKD (450 USD) on only the making of a fully canvassed jacket (I said that I would bring my own fabric). What's more is that his fellow collegue told me over the phone yesterday that it would be more like around 2000HKD...which left me totally puzzled. Do they play this trick just to get you to their place? Plus 3500HKD is literally on par with William Yu, who at the same price point (only +50USD) I'd rather go to.

The big question is whether or not a suit at $HK5000 is worth having. Chan, Yao or Y William Yu remain those of choice.

Ok might not be relevant now since its January 11, but I digress. Made two suits at Jantzen, regular + tux. 3850 and 4850 If I am not mistaken. I found that generally speaking the pants aren't great because they don't really hug your butt, now this is my first time going to a tailor but compared the the Zara stuff I wear, the crotch/ass area is jsut too loose, and I've told them to not make it so. The Jacket........uh it doesn't fit, I don't know how this could have happened, I tried it on with a thin Uniqlo v neck on top of my shirt, and it's tight when I button it. So I gotta get that fixed somehow. To feed my curiosity though, I will go check out WW Chan or Peter Lee. Just Need to keep doing more research I suppose!
