    I believe that most of us on this fora have used a bunch of HK tailors in the past with unfavorable results with the exception of WW Chan and Gordon Yao.

    Thats not to say Empire or any other tailor is not competent to do a great job simply becuase of the lack of reviews here. Good luck!

    I think Baroman and A-man have also gotten good reviews.

    I wouldn't say that. I'm sure there are plenty of good tailors that aren't mentioned.

    Price is a factor and my brother just had something made there and it looks pretty good. And to try something new.

    I think these are indeed the four at the higher end of the (pricing) spectrum that have received favorable reviews here. Happy to be corrected though.

    Heading to HK in 3 weeks and plan to have several bespoke suits made: am looking for a very slim cut, cut to the bone cut; very high armholes; slim sleeves; single button; open quarters; double vent; natural shoulders (zero padding); no roping etc...

    Are certain tailors in HK better at this type of cut/look than others, or will any of the aforementioned do?

    Peter Lee can certainly do that if you request it. Honestly though, I'd think twice as a suit that tight really sounds like it won't be at all comfortable.
