    Hi guys

    I am just wondering what/where is the best bespoke in HK? And the median price for a suit?

    Thanks!

    As you seem too idle to do a search on the many threads here, try Chan or Gordon Yao.

    Maybe you can manage to ask them on their pricing?

    Don't bother with the research. When you arrive in Hong Kong, head over to Kowloon. Friendly Indian gentlemen will approach you and miraculously read your mind that you want a suit. Tell them that price is no object and they'll look after you extremely well.

    Solid advice, as an Indian I endorse this promotion of Indian tailors based in Tsim Sha Tsui

    The cream of the crop (in my opinion): WW Chan, Y William Yu, Gordon Yao and H Baromon, in no particular order. Each one has a website and will respond to your request for their price range (low to high).

    I'm not an expert in construction techniques and cloth quality but I see and handle their garments every week.

    Hope this helps.

    I would agree about WW Chan and Gordon Yao. I thought Baromon lost a touch or two. Are you referring to William Yu or Y. William Yu? Both are tailors and supposedly both are pretty good but no personal experience.

    I would assume Y William Yu on Mody Road, not the other at the Peninsular.I was minded to offer him but I felt that two wold be sufficient for the OP to trouble looking up.

    GBR: Thanks for pointing out the need to clarify. I meant Y. William Yu. I've edited my original comment.

    Anything the matter with A-Man Hing Cheong? They're supposed to be up there. I believe there is another tailor who used to be a A-Man who went out on his own who is in the same ballpark. Believe his name starts with a K.

    My only experience has been with Chan on their US tours, and I have found them wonderful people to deal with and their work extremely satisfactory.

    Ignore all the other advice in this thread, just head straight for Sam's Tailor, Nathan Road, TST. Come out of exit B1 of TST station, you can't miss it. Tell him Mike sent you.

    Close friend of mine is a hedge fund guy. Says he's going to HK. Says that all his pals at work recommend Sam. I do the proverbial face slap (*insert face slap emoticon*) and tell him that a guy making a couple milli a year can swing a Chan or two. He says thanks for the recommendation. I see him a month later in an ill-fitting sportcoat in a miserable teal-colored cloth, stiff as a board, just unforgiveable. I say, "Nice coat." He says, "Thanks man. I told my buddies about Chan but they didn't want to pony up so we just went to Sam." Hey, some people can't be helped.

    I don't think I have seen a Sam's suit that I have liked.

    Saving for another crash I guess.
