Hong Kong Tailors. William Yu tailor and E-Italian - Page 4

post #46 of 55
Thread Starter 

Since this is my first time going bespoke, I want to try different price point before I can decide which tailor should I go to, may be the members in this forum have very high standard, I find my first bespoke experience very rewarding, the fit of these two suits are way better than my 10 RTW suits, my RTW suits are all in the US900 to US1200 range, for me to jump into US1500 to US2000 bespoke suits need some time to adjust. I do enjoy the bespoke experience, so may be no turning back to RTW for me

2 months?! One of the main reasons to bespoke in HK is for speed, to avoid the 3+ month wait of Western tailors. Chan is fitting me now and is shooting for 7 days; the whole reason I came to HK this time around actually. I tried Yao before and honestly not sure whether he's warranted in extending his time like that...

Yao said he can do faster, is just I am not in a rush and want him to take the time to do the suit, I said even two months is OK for me. So is not his intention to do it slow.

He can do suits in 7-10 days with fittings but any rush job is clearly at the expense of another client.

Interesting comparisons.

I have tried A-Man, YWY and also WWC.

I myself would tend to pay a little more and get exactly what I need. With AMHC I realized they do extremely classic cuts, but are extremely rude, unreliable and a bit sloppy if you don't control the output. Still, I keep going there to buy shirts and jackets. I love William Yu for his pants, absolutely best in class and extremely well fitted. Not so much the suits (but I don't buy suits these days anyway). My friend, however, who seriously earns three times what I do, loves YWY's suits and shirts and keeps ordering there.

I guess it's really a matter of taste and how you like the guys working with you.

They all have two fittings before completion

Can anyone recommend one of the "good" tailors in Hong Kong that is leaning more towards the Italian aesthetic (less padding for the shoulders etc)? I am not asking for a Neapolitan style, but it seems that the majority of HK tailors is tending toward the English style, which makes sense given the historical background..
