As titled. Want to get some formal white shirts from a HK tailor. Any recommendations? Willing to pay 1000-2000 HKD per shirt.

Thanks a lot :)

thanks!

i see they have an online shop selling ready to made shirts. do they differ from their 'bespoke service' in terms of quality? would their bespoke service cost a lot more? also, do you have any recommendations in terms of fabric for white shirts.

sorry for all the questions - i'm new to tailoring and stuff.

Depending on fabric they start anywhere between $120 and up.

I think the bespoke is better in quality but I never paid attention that closely when I had a RTW. Most fabrics that I gotten are Thomas Mason and Alumo.

Good advice.

Don't be shy to get their opinions on things. If in HK go to the Peninsula Hotel branch.
