Not all Hong Kong tailors are good. - Page 3

post #31 of 37

Raja fashions designed a custom made dormeuil suit for me which was a perfect fit thhat only required 2 fittings. I needed the suit on my business trip in the US and they were gracious enough to expedite my order in time for my trip. Now that is excellent customer service in my book!

I have to say a rather abrupt and unsubstantiated comment such as this is what really annoys people about discussion threads. How somebody can simply make a statement such as this for the world to see doesn't exactly do anyone any favours.

 

I have used Himark Martin twice and I am seeing them again tomorrow for another suit. I typically buy only Hugo Boss for the fit, since I am 6 foot 2, it's hard to get a nicely fitted suit. The quality of the materials used is second to none and I have never once had a single issue, far from this I have had many compliments about the look of the suit and from my dry cleaner who commented on how high-quality the shirt material was. Before assumptions are made, I have no commercial connection to this company, however after being introduced via a CUDO deal, I have actually arranged for Himark Martin to visit our offices here tomorrow and fit-out a number of staff.

 

Post your comments by all means but at least have substance to back it up, in my experience Himark Martin are superb in every way and I know a good suit when I see one.

Who valued it? I'd say that is one of the hallmarks of a shady deal.

Yes agreed totally, we need "substance to back it up." Let's see some pics, see what your suit actually looks like with you wearing it. We must see if it's superb in every way.

Yeh, any threak with "Hong Kong" and "tailor" in it is promising.

When I get something custom made I expect it to fit like a glove. Although the quality of the seam work on my three shirts was high, the fit across the top of the backs of the shirts was poor, with excessive fabric. There was also a lack of shape in the shoulders from a side on view.

I would expect a tailor in business as long as this - one that has taken my exact measurements - to get to right first time. But they failed and I was very disappointed. 

BMV offered to make changes to the shirts when they were next in town but this was two months away and I needed the shirts now. As a compromise they refunded $15 on each shirt for local repairs but that is not enough given what local alteration shops charge.

I ended up giving the shirts to the local op shop. 

If you are very particular about your clothing I would say stay away from this tailor. It really does need actual photos of its products online rather than the pencil sketches as I was also a bit disappointed in the shape of the collar and how it sat. The buttons on the cuffs are also very small and hard to close.

My lesson in all this is it's okay to buy shoes and jeans online but not much else.
