Unknown Hong Kong Tailors?

Or maybe I should say not known.

It seems that the same tailors are recommended repeatedly. Having tried one for a suit, and another for a shirt, I am hesitant to try any others, although WW Chan still sounds tempting. There must be some unknown gems out there that provide an excellent tailored product for a reasonable price. There are so many hidden around the city that manage to stay in business, they most be doing something right?

If you know of any, please list the name and location.

Just stick with Chan and Peter Lee and you'll be all set.

Gordon Yao, Y William Yu or Chan are quire adequate to choose from. Experimentation is not worth the expense,

There are known Hong Kong tailors. These are Hong Kong tailors we know that we know. There are Hong Kong tailor unknowns. That is to say, there are Hong Kong tailors that we know we don't know. But there are also unknown Hong Kong tailors. There are Hong Kong tailors we don't know we don't know.

Bosco tailors is someone my friend has used. Says its pretty good but he has no fabric selection and more expensive than Yao or Chan.

My friend says the Attorney General/Minister of Justice of HK uses Bosco

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.
