UPDATE: I'm not sure how useful this will be, but given the help you chaps have offered, I thought I'd share my experiences day by day.
Went to Lee Baron today. Peter Lee is excellent.
I was literally straight off the plane, so a bit unkempt. I dropped of my luggage at the hotel, and went directly to Kowloon to Lee Baron.
First, it took me a little while to find his place, and in the street there were lots of hawkers offering watches, tailoring, etc. However, I have to say that as hawkers go, they were great. One told my girlfriend to mind her handbag, and another showed me the way to Lee Baron, even though he was pitching for his own place.
For people going, it's in a kind of shopping centre which is indoor stalls; Lee Baron is on the ground floor.
When I have more time, I can provide more precise directions.
The quotes I got on the phone -- see above -- were real, but not for full canvass. Another client was in the store at the time, and was ordering a suit for his son, who insisted on full canvass -- so it can be done. I chose against it, because it was going to be tight for time (I'm only in Hong Kong for five nights) and it would also take the price over HK$5000. My situation, as I mentioned in earlier posts, is that I've lost lots of weight, and none of my current suits fit. So for me, a lot of suits made well by a trustworthy source is more impotant than having the zenith of quality -- which is why I didn't got to Chan.
But the selection of cloths is superb, and Peter Lee is excellent at what he does -- I'm delighted with the service I received personally, and even sofar as one assistents even escorted my girlfriend to a place where she could get a manicure while I was pansying around with materials and cuts.)
Full disclosure: I'm not as knowledgable as you guys here on suits, so perhaps I'm not quite as exacting with my standards. Second, as abovementioned, I havevery specific requirements. I therefore wanted some classic, simple suits that could act day-to-day beaters. I therefore chose a grey worsted, a navy worsted and a navy pinstripe. I asked for one button suits, four working sleve buttons, a working lapel button, two of the suits with notch lapels, one with peaked, the lapels high (which is the standard cut), and kept with the standard there in general.
When I go back tomorrow, the price is so much lower than Moscow, that if the first fitting is good, I might pick out a grey flannel, too.
Anyway, pre-first fitting, all extremely happy. I have to say that it's everythign I hoped for. Peter Lee is excellent, and it's easy to get carried away.
I'll keep you updated after fittings and final purchase. When it's all over, I'll give prices, etc.
