Seeking a new tailor - Page 2

post #16 of 22
If you can name any good tailor around Asia that is cheaper and better than the top HK tailors, then I will accept your analysts.

You would be better served by a local tailor or department store. If you post the name of the city/town you live in, SF members willbe only too happy to recommend their local favorites.

Nonsense. Suits from Chan and Yao look good the world over - more so than many so-called local tailors who you commend for no reason.

My local tailor is on Savile Row. But the Row is not for everyone. I would still buy a department store suit in the US before I bought the a Hong Kong suit. What next? A fake Rolex to go with it?

Generalities is a sign of the lazy mind, often an indication of biases and prejudices.  

 

WHICH department store in the US?  

 

WHAT Hong Kong suit? Bespoke, MTM or RTW?

 

More to the point- do you know what you are talking about?

There's plenty of real Rolexs in HK. FYI a large majority of the world's Rolexs and other fine watches are sold in HK.
