It looks legit but I've never dealt with them and payment is via wire transfer.

Thoughts?

On-line tailor from Hong Kong. What can go wrong here?

:lurk:

OT:

Why is it most HK tailors seem to use exactly the same style guide from the 1980s?

Could just imagine the dude using a Nokia Mobira Cityman cellphone.

I know about Luxire. But I got the idea from SF that pretty much any HK tailor other than WW Chan or Gordon Yao, could very well end up in a sartorial disaster. Although I have my own HK favourite that I usually use for shirts.

If you can find no reference to them I would suggest avoiding unless you want ton be the guinea pig with all the pitfalls that are likely from such a sweat shop

Probably because those are all the images they can find on line to copy. Creating their own is very rare.

It's not just on-line, many HK tailors seem to have the same printed catalogue of those rather dated images as well. It's like style ideas circa 1987 or something.
