He will deliver speech in annual dinner coming x'mas, so a tux that help him look great is important and becomes my KPI.

Take him to WW Chan and Ascot Chang so he gets an idea of what it costs for suits and tux on the higher end of the food chain.

Yes wwchan is definitely an option and someone share their tux photo in another thread too.

But I would also like to give a cheaper and decent alternative to my boss. It will be great if Ng sifu can come to my boss office to do measurement and fitting as I don't think my boss will go to that shop far far away multiple times.

If he isn't telling you what his budget is why would you want to give him a cheaper alternative?

As the head of operation, he is always concerned on cost...
Anyway, just an option to him, why not?

I hear that Ng sifu does occasionally go to offices to measure etc, but it's not standard service. If you want premium service like that, then you should be looking to pay more.

I guess my point is, why not start at the higher end of the food chain and then let him tell you to find someone else.

Ng's full canvas two piece tux with Dormeuil fabric is offering from hk$8k. I do not think it is very cheap.

Oh that's not cheap. I thought it's a price competitive option.
Is it because of the middleman (Michael??) that charges a lot?

Agree and thus I will put this as an option to my boss.
At the end of the day, he is the real customer.

Good luck finding a full canvas tux for much less than 8k in Hong Kong.
post #3432 of 3700

A fully canvassed Tux in Dormeuil at $8K HKD is more than reasonable, IMO.

I feel sorry for audilover but recommending ur new colleague for work clothing rarely goes well.

I suggest you to pay close attention to the stuff (more importantly the quality of it). It can easily be the case that he is acustom to typical RTW clothing. In that case, suggesting real tailors may attract adverse impression and comments.

Not just his colleague, but his boss smile.gif

Have a check of Yuen's tailor in central?
