Do you have linking And Marzoni email contact? Or only phone number?
You may refer to the "CMT Blog", which covers the phone numbers of major suit fabric distributors in HK. Those are local businesses. Calling and visiting are the best ways for info.

Long Wear at Railway Plaza. Two of them are under the same company but they hold different stocks. The blog is really helpful on that.
heard from some people, Long wear and Artextile are managed by the same family, they are brothers. they are expanding their market and distributing increasing numbers of fabric brand.

for their market management, each company carries different brands and hold different stocks.

Anyone in HK now looking to get a suit made? I currently am but don't speak Cantonese so wanted to see if anyone else is planning on visiting and perhaps we could go together, also advising each other

WW Chan is one of the last ones around I believe. They are one of the more expensive options there are.
@PekingRoadHK mentioned on his blog that there are some on the 7th Floor of Mirador Mansion (Master Yeung sifu, Master Lam sifu, Master Hung sifu). Is this still the case?

Good and bad BaoTou Tailors (no definition) come and go in Mirador Mansion every year.
I can't update everything all the time.

I heard those Red Gang tailors are still there. They have very good skills, they can make suits in their HK workshops all by themself. You have to expect long production time from uncles. If you choose them to have the production in Shenzhen, this is not Red Gang production. The next concern is they might not understand your modern style, this is about communications.

My blog tells a few (old HK) sifu in and out of Mirador, they all come from expensive well-known bespoke in HK, they prefer NOT to disclose the names in public. You have to talk to them to find out which bespoke they worked for. They are retired in house tailors / BaoTou from bespoke, they were there decades ago. They are not existing BaoTou tailors from well-known bespoke. Do expect long production time (if you choose them to make suits in HK all by themself) and the cutting style might not fit all modern demands. Consumers can look at their end products before making decisions.
