Oh, I think you might have misunderstood my intentions. I'm not saying that those who do not travel out are poor. There are some who get enough work from local orders and feel no need to travel.
I'm just saying that apart from the big names, there are many smaller tailor shops whose clientele base are looking for suits in the cheaper price range and are willing to do so with some compromises to construction and quality as long as it fits well.
I find looking for a tailor is as difficult as looking for a soul mate. I don't think it's specific to Hong Kong, it's rare to find a tailor whose house cut resembles much of what you originally had in mind.
