    There are a lot of tailors in HK you know, and not everyone goes to WW Chan

    If you take your normal mark-up the customer gets a bargain and so will return and your margins are not harmed.

    Why not research here who these may be and then approach them directly? They are not necessarily going to this this isolated post. You need to consider how best to use the net not simply take a lazy route.

    Picking fabric in person is a must and as many fittings as time allows.






    I had thought of that.You clearly get off on insulting peoples inteligence.How very anal.

    Both recent questions should try and contact Peter Lee. There is tons of information on this thread and via Google is one searches a bit.

    The fit of Edward Tam was right. But there were issues like loose threads on one of my pants (made 3 pants, one suit and one shirt). But the tailors I have worked with so far don't have the level of attention to detail as I would expect.

    Also, Tam doesn't tend to give you better buttons or fusing options unless you ask.

    I've been reading these forums for 6 months and finally joined today. I've been visiting Il Sarto on Gilman's Bazaar in Central for the past year or so for my suits and shirts. My priority is the cut versus the fabric and these guys are very detailed and current with trends as opposed to the more traditional tailors. Suits start at 4650$ (4250$ only in 2011) requiring 1 to 2 fittings.
