The Hong Kong Tailors Thread - Page 235

post #3511 of 3698

Anyone have a suggestion for someone in Hong Kong that does MTM leather jackets? I was made aware of that one company who posts on  Styleforum but they only do A-1 styles - I'm looking for a cafe rider style, like so

Wow.

Bring out the gimp...

Thanks for all the info everyone! Been processing it all in preparation for 7 days in HK and think I'm going to go with suits and shirts at Peter Lee's. A bit tempted by Y William Yu but their prices seemed to have gone up pretty significantly, and AMHC/Chan/Baroman/Yao all seem just out of my price range. 

 

Anyway, I have a few RTW suits and shirts that I'd like to get fixed up while I was there. I realize that the vast majority of this thread is dedicated to custom tailoring but can anyone recommend a good tailor for repairs and basic fixes in HK? 

 

Thanks in advance!

What is the recent price of Peter Lee suits and shirts ?

Peter is around 650 HKD a shirt at the moment- thick MOP buttons, initials etc. They are very good at the price point.

wow that price has gone up a lot since I last used him

I think it varies on different shirt fabric . Peter Lee is always cheaper than other famous tailor shops.

Just had first fitting at Dreams, need modification on crotch depth, anything I missed to tell Ricky?

Pants need a lot of cleaning up. Back of jacket looks good. I think there's too much waist suppression, but that's me.

Thanks, afair Ricky will shorten the length and make it stay at higher waist, increase crotch depth and hip area. Waist will be loosen a bit too.

Just the obvious: Are these trousers supposed to be worn with braces and if not why not?

It was kind of wrongly executed, meant to be high waist and I'm too slim & beyond their imagination lol

My experience so far is that HK tailors aren't great with high waisted trousers. I haven't tried the expensive top tier ones though.
