I'm arriving in HK on Thursday and would appreciate some help. Yes, I'm a noob and I desperately need help before making a huge $$$ tailoring decision.
From SF reviews I'm looking at the following HK tailors:
-Peter Lee of Lee Baron
-Y William Yu
I need to get a tuxedo (full getup incl. shirt) made as I'm a best man in a few months and also would want to use it for my wedding one day.
Would be great to get shirts from a few shops so I can reorder whoever does the best job.
Also, would be looking for a blazer (unstructured with shoulder pads?), pants, and a grey suit.
I'm 5'5" and 125lb, super skinny and short arms and cannot fit anything OTR. I want a very slim cut, highly tapered pants, cutaway collar (think Thomas Pink), I wear 2"-2.5" skinny ties so I want similar sized lapels (is 2.5" my min or or can I go smaller?), jacket bottom that comes down to wrist, etc.
I'm on a budget and would like to get the most bang for my buck. Since I'm in my mid 20's and I can't fit OTR, I will need to build a full suit and shirt wardrobe in the near future. My alternative when I get back to NYC will basically be MTM stuff (MySuitNY, J Hilburn, etc.. ). So if HK really is right for me I want to get measured and sorted while I am in town.
What tailor/s can I go to that will understand and accommodate my needs (style wise), and allow me maintain a budget in the long term?
