I'm not sure about the protocol of posting questions here without contributing first, but I'm off to Hong Kong on Thursday and have some pressing questions. So, sorry in advance.
I've done some trawling here, and there are indeed some superb threads for advice on Hong Kong tailors. WW Chan appears to be seen as the gold standard, but my circumstances don't really justify going there. I've recently lost about 30 pounds in weight, and thus none of my suits fit me. I'm therefore looking for at least three, and preferably four, suits, plus probably one or two blazers, two overcoats and enough shirts and ties to mix and match with the suits. Alas, while personally, I'd love to go to Chan and get all that, Mrs Angleton will go crazy if I spend HKD10,000-and up per suit when buying in that kind of bulk.
A friend recommended Lord's tailor, but I couldn't get through. Their sister shop, Charms, said that their suits would be HKD4,500, which is right in my price range. However, I haven't seen either tailor mentioned once on here.
Jantzen, who I'd really rather go to, haven't responded to an email, so I'm not sure whether they'll be able to complete my order within the seven days I'm there, or indeed, how much they cost these days.
So, I'm looking for either recommendations within that price range (no more than HKD5,000 per suit), a rough idea on how much Jantsen would charge, or confirmation that Lords and Charms are, indeed, good places to go. I understand that I won't get a Saville Row-quality experience for that, but I do want a good quality suit that represents value for money.
Again, sorry for taking advantage of your expertise when I'm brand new to the forum, but I have looked through all the threads listed here, and can't see any answers to my questions.
Thanks in advance.
