Dear forum members,
I just came across this thread while doing further research online on Hong Kong tailors, and I became a little curious about my own suit which I had recently purchased from the same company. So finally I decided to open up an account ( something I now wish I had done well before) .Coming from San Francisco, I am in Hong Kong for roughly 1 more week visiting relatives. The worry I have is that I've already purchased 2 suits, 4 shirts, 4 ties from Empire Tailors, just like Robetrw006 did. It is my first bespoke suit and Its mainly for a job interview I have coming up in July. I had heard great things about EmpireTailors so I thought to give them a try. Since its pretty much my first suit ever, I wasn't sure what to look/ ask for and would love some comments/ opinions from the stylish members of this forum...
-I had requested a modern slim cut overall, but still business and office appropriate as I will be working in mostly sales and dealings.
Question: is it too much of a slim fit? Or still appropriate for the business environment? I need to be taken seriously at work..
-I paid around 1600 USD for 2 suits and 4 shirts, I think it was the package deal a couple of levels above the one Robetrw006 went for. The tailor told me that this was a good, durable, Italian fabric and one of the higher end ones.
Question: for those who have experience with Hong Kong Tailors, does this look like its worth the dollars? I spent a little over my budget... (but I have a habit of doing that)
- The tailor explained that the mild curvature in the mid section of the jacket gives it a modern look, and moves me away from the "boxy cut".
Question: Is the tapering too extreme, or is that how it normally should look? I am not quite sure but I think that is the part of the jacket Robetrw006 seems to be talking about?
-Question: I had 2 fittings, is that normally enough for a good bespoke tailored suit?
I am happy with the suit and shirts, they feel good and the fabric is great. I agree with Robetrw006 that the tailors/staff were helpful and nice but once again I would really appreciate opinions from those with experience as I have none, so I am just slightly worried. I have one more week here, so if there needs to be anything done the tailor said I can always come back for alterations..
** My opinion on Robetrw006 's Suit, I think your jacket looks good but your pants really need some work done.
Thank you all in advance!!!
