After a couple years on the site, last March and April I figured it was time to use the knowledge I had obtained from all the excellent posts and set off to Thailand and Singapore in search of a tailor made blazer and shirts. After trying most of the more widely known shops I started trying some of the more more botique options. In Hong Kong my search led me to Peter So's shop. Now that I've been able to wear the suit and shirts Mr. So prepared for me for a good six months I feel comfortable recommending him (and his wife Wendy who runs the shop with him) to anyone visiting Hong Kong. Not only do they really provide excellent service, but they use very high quality materials. I went with the Loro Piana lightweight wool as I spend most of the year in Singapore so staying cool is an important priority. I paid approx. $1,100 for the blazer and another $130 for the shirts. They are really excellent and I've received a number of compliments on them and have had a better year in my line of work wearing Peter's creations this year. Attached are some links showing Peter and his shop last April. He had just moved and the shop was in the final days of construction before opening, but you can see how nice it is. I don't receive anything from Peter for recommending him...just want to give back after all I've taken from the site. Finding a good tailor in Thailand, Hong Kong (and Singapore) can be an extreme lesson in patience and persistence...hopefully this helps narrow your search if this is the type of tailor you're looking for.
