    I’m looking for the best suit I can get in my price range of $500-700$

    I already browsed this site thoroughly but I am looking for more opinions on the mid-range suits in HK.

    My criteria is I am arriving on Thursday night and leaving on Sunday morning. So the suit would need to be finished in 2.5 days. I can go for the initial fitting on Thursday night.

    Price range : $500-$700

    Thursday : measurement
    Friday : fitting 1
    Saturday : fitting 2
    Sunday AM : pickup

    My research has lead me to William Cheng and Jantzens. I’ve had jantzens for shirts and I am quite happy with the quality. 3 of the shirts were significantly different in size, however. But I will be going back to them for shirts.


    Also, where is a good place to get some quality ties in HK ?

    I shiver will you need a suit for 2.5 days, plus paying an amount which could get a reasonable RTW

    I had Jantzen make me a suit once and it was a train wreck.

    From what I gather, Mong Kok is going to be your friend, but I don't have any names for you, sorry.

    Save your money and buy off the rack. No way to get a good suit in 2.5 days.

    Agree. 2.5 days is simply not enough to get a decent custom suit. Custom suits by reputable tailors require at least 4 or 5 weeks to get made.
