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.

You can enjoy searching for the "prefect" tailor, however I can say that there is no such thing.

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.

Grand Tailor is much higher than that, 9k for 2 pc with entry level house fabric.

I have been looking for black and white Wedding Ties (Shepherd's Check, Houndstooth, Plaid) for a while now with no success. Anyone have any recommendations around the city?

Wedding is coming up in March. I got a 3-piece navy suit made at William Cheng & Sons, and very much like the product. Would recommend.

Thanks!

Not local or OTR, but samhober.com might be able to help before then. Excellent work and service.

Thanks for the suggestion. Feels a shame to buy a tie online in this city though!

Armory in Landmark had a few Drake's ties, including 2 Glen Plaid.

Paul Smith had 3 kinds of Plaid: Red, blue and b/w.

I was hoping not to spend 1000+ so I may end up going online as you say. Thanks!

Hello- I am taking a trip to Hong Kong next month and would like to get two suits- a traditional black tuxedo and a traditional navy suit for work. I will be in HK for five days.  The plan was to spend no more than $2.5-3k USD for both. 

I was hoping to go to WWC, or GY. Leaning toward WWC.

 

1.) is five days enough for two suits if I reach out prior?

2.) The WWC website says their cheapest suits are ~$1500. Is that up-to-date?

3.) Is there a particular shop that is more familiar with tux's?

4.) If I am satisfied with the suit I am fitted for, is it possible to have a second suit reproduced and shipped without a fitting (with a high degree of consistency)?

 

Thanks, this has been a great help for me.

Hello all,

Chan is coming to town soon for their trunk show, and I plan to have my fit updated and make an order. I'm interested in basic shirting and business casual pants.

I'm hoping the experts on the forum can advise me on the best fabrics brands/colors/weights to look for to grow and add versatility to my wardrobe. My simple shoe collection consists of black cap-toe oxfords, and burgundy cordovan and dark brown suede loafers. Additionally, I already have a dark navy hopsack wool suit that still fits well. I have a pale irish complexion, brown hair/hazel eyes.

I plan to order basic white and pale blue cotton shirts, and two pairs of dress pants that I can work into the rest of the wardrobe. I would be wearing this clothing four-five days a week in a four-season office environment. I'm willing to pay for quality fabrics as long as they hold up with regular wear, and offer versatility.

If anyway here on the forum can offer me some advice or steer me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it. Thank you for your help!

@jswp

I think with your budget it is workable with both WWC and GY. What do you mean by "traditional"?

I think you should also consider what fabric you like... especially on tux...

I suggest you to have a more detailed spec. in mind to ensure you don't get a rubbish result and pushing money down the drain.

@Chicagobred

I recently ordered a length of mid-grey zegna Wool-linen-silk trouser length, it has a nice silvery sheen finish and relatively durable for daily usage.

Depends the typical climate you have to face, I will probably choose 1) mid-grey 2)stone or honey 3)brown in 290-310 gram weight. Wool trouser for me is more usable than chino's cotton fabric.

Time for me to get some new shirts - most of my William Cheng ones are now a good 3 years old and so are starting to fray/wear out.

 

Is Ascot Chang still the best and at HK$1,500 per shirt? Any other high quality alternatives I should consider?

post #3056 of 3698
I think Ascot Chang are still regarded as one of the best.
post #3057 of 3698
I use a number of other makers, including Charvet, Budd, and an Italian house. Even though they might be objectively "better" or more interesting, or more recently fitted, etc., there are still days when Ascot Chang makes me happier than any of the others.

Obviously, wear your best shirt (or take it, if it's really hot out) to the measurement. They'll follow just about any set of directions you give them, but you do have to ask.

One nice thing to be aware of with them-- once you get your pattern down, they will do CMT for what used to be US$110/shirt. Given that they increase the prices quite radically for the better grades of cotton, this can save you a lot if you know where to buy fabric. They do carry many of the really good lines, so that will have more chance of their approval if you get some off-the-beaten-track stuff like the London Lounge's linens or Bonfanti.

Any pic besides those from Instagram of fitting and internal construction of both the coat and trouser for Mr. Paone ?

If you are in town, feel free to come in to have a look at the real thing.
