Tailor tried to dodge fixing my shoulder's drop by pulling on the sleeve so excess fabric is hidden temporarily, saying its normal. Typical.

I was wondering if anyone knew of any tailors in Hong Kong who are able to create a custom or at least made to measure trench coat. I'd love to get something in the style of a Burberry trench but I've never been able to successfully find one that fits me right. My body proportions are unfortunately just odd (exceptionally long arms for my height) and for the price of a Burberry coat, I don't feel comfortable trying to tailor it and then having it come out wrong or ruined.

 

If possible I'd prefer the staff to have at least some proficiency in English as I cannot speak Cantonese or Mandarin and I'd like to be able to properly convey the specifications/expectations I have.

 

Also, ideally it would be great if the shop accepted credit card as, in addition to the points I'd earn, I save significantly on the conversion rate thanks to my card. However, I understand this request might be a bit unrealistic so really if anyone has any leads regardless, please let me know.

 

Thanks!

 

If I remember correctly... Burberry has previously offered made-to-measure trench coats. Last year when I was in London for vacation, I think it's still offered in the Regent Street shop. However, I'm not sure whether they are still offering it (not seeing it in the website now).

Anyone have advise for the best tailor to make 1 suit for about $1,000 usd? I'm not sure if I am in the WW Chan or Lee Baron range. I used Jantzen years ago and want to upgrade. Also I will only be in HK for 2.5 days. Much appreciated.

I am sorry to break the new but 2.5 days is unlikely to have a suit to your desirability in Hong Kong, no matter the budget.

They fixed it when I insisted, and it's pretty good now, just had some extra fabric bunching up, easy fit, took all of 30 minutes, really.

That's good to hear, if anything happens you always have a claim in contract for breaches.  I take it Hong Kong still operates under the Common law so there are plenty of recourses for you.

I think people here got annoyed you were asking about a DC tailor store in a Hong Kong thread, or you might have meant "you're from DC, but would like to know if there are any good tailors in HK".
