Has anyone tried out Yuen's tailor? Stumbled upon a youtube vid on them the other day.

The other tailor work for Royal Army was Ah Lee Tailor at Shek Kong San Tsuen, Yuen Long Pat Heung.
But I don't know do they still stay in business.

Is he good? The youtube clip I saw Yuen said he does all his suits himself and does not fuse them.

My tux was not fused. He cut all his suits, you always see him cutting when you pass by. I think he may have his own workshop do the coat making.

I have just seen the video, His work sounds very promising. the tailoring must be quiet good if he can make a Napoleon army uniform.
Will give them a check next time. What is your verdict Fishball?

I think Yuen is a decent tailor.
If you seach from the forum, I think I recommend people to check it out few time.
They are not on the top, but they deliver what they promised at a reasonable price point.

What is top? I always find such notion odd, since all tailors learn their trade differently.

Plus not all top tailors gives people top service, that's evidential in Savile row tailors.

I'm going to check em out this week. Yuen seems quite passionate about what he does, plus I'm hoping his prices are stupendous as well

I went to Lee Baron over the weekend and a CMT 3 piece is 6xxx, it's frankly too expensive.

I judge it by their product, not by their service.
I don't think it i s too diffcult to judge the product quality by looking at them closely.
First is the balance and cut, then the craftmanship.

.... I guess we have to meet up and chat.

p.s. The typical savile row service is worse than what I get in Hong Kong. Perhaps I am not a Knight or Baron here.

What then, pray, would not be too expensive? I mean, let's be honest, these are fully-canvassed prices. Let's say half of the price goes to overhead, margin, and things like the necessary haberdashery, and that it takes 10 hours to make a suit (and I think for a three-piece, it's more), that means you're paying 300 HKD per working hour. I'd be happy if I could get away paying my plumber that much.

But there are plenty of local tailors that is far better than Lee Baron, and charge the same.
post #540 of 1983
Dear 911

Unless it is a secret, I would be interested to learn which HK tailors are far better than Lee Baron but charge the same for a fully canvassed suit.
