So I will be taking a trip to HK in a few months and would like to know what are some of the good places to visit for bespoke clothing? We all know about Jantzen and WWChan. But maybe there are some lesser known places that have just as good or even better quality then these places for prices that are less. I don't know if it is possible to top Jantzen for shirts but the price for a WWChan suit, I am sure it is possible to find something of even better quality at a lower price point.

Thanks

You can visit WW Chan, A-man Hin Cheong (another reputable - and oldest - tailor in HK), Jantzen Tailor and Ascot Chang (Prince's Building, Central)

For lesser known places, I guess you are out of luck as a tourist as some of their good tailors tend to work freelance moving from place and place.(Bespoke biz is not that good in HK esp shops that doest' advertise them to foreigners) For cheap suit and shirt, you may want to try out this one, visit their central shop where there is an experienced tailor. ERAVE Sam is located in the vacanity of WWCHAN, I heard that if you know your stuff and request it, they can produce an okay suit as well. You can also take a look at a department store called Lane Crawford in Central. it has a bespoke section. During Jan, they should have some discount for fabrics. Labour cost is about $400USD per suit.

Def. see A-Man. And also at least have Sam's make you a pair or two or three of odd-trousers in tropical weight worsted. They were (are?) a great value.

And don't forget that Jantzen, besides making nice shirts, makes a decent pair of trousers too.

After considering WW Chan, and another tailor kindly recommended by Naturlaut, I tried Jantzen out for a couple of suits. They are superb.
