The Hong Kong Tailors Thread - Page 203

post #3031 of 3688

...

 

Basically, I've been wearing RTW suits for a while now and want to try getting a suit done with a tailor. Within a maybe 6000 HKD budget, what kind of tailors should I try out? From what I've read of this thread, Grand Tailor, etc are kinda similar in price.

Dear all,

 

I have been reading up on some very interesting experiences and opinions on this thread.

 

It is good to read that there are so many passionate people that still love the craft of HK bespoke tailoring - which I have started to develop a passion for since moving to Hong Kong.

 

I was reading good stuff about Lai Sifu in Sham Shui Po - could someone please give me his address and contact details?

 

Thank you.

This isn't funny to me and I am sure your comment is quite offensive to many. Dial it down a notch, please.

For those who are Hui's customer / customer-to-be,

I have through my effort (and upon Hui's advice) ordered a small amount of RIchardJamesWeldon trimmings for initial try out.

Upon arrival, Hui was pleased with the quality of it and I cannot wait to see some of my garments made with the new trimmings.

I can proudly say Hui's place is now capable of producing garments with authentic English trimmings (save for Western gimp threads for buttonholes), which are not often seen in Hong Kong.

Given the small amount purchased, Hui will reserved the trimmings only for my referrals. CMT will not be offered under this head.

What makes their house style iGent in your opinion?

Put it this way, besides a better fit, I dont see the suit different to highend Italian garment factory.

If you have ordered things from them, the first commission has a very spot on MTM vibe.

Again, better to check it out yourself to get ur personal view.

Do you think there are better alternatives at that price point?
