The Hong Kong Tailors Thread - Page 201
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.
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).
Welcome to the forum, @ktosh. I moved your post over here so you an get the help you need. Best of luck.
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.
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.
