Whether you’re visiting Hong Kong for the first time or the tenth, things you probably wanna do in Hong Kong is to get a dim sum lunch, watch Rugby Sevens games, night view of Victoria Harbour…. what about getting a bespoke suit (or dress) from our Hong Kong tailors?
Hong Kong has an absolute army of tailors and the city is rightly famed for being able to stitch-up top quality suits at competitive prices.
Which tailor shall I go for? Ask yourselves three questions:
1) When do you need the suits be done?
If you’re in a big hurry, some Hong Kong tailors have express services offering ’24-hour suits,’ where you pick the fabrics and style and get measured in the morning, have a fitting later that same day and pick up the finished suit the following morning. If you’re in Hong Kong for a week or so, there’re even more tailors can work with you by getting you suits in 2-3 days. This may involve up to three or more visits, but the more visits are to get you even better fit suits.
Even if you’re in Hong Kong for less than a day and still wanna get custom-made suits, don’t worry, our Hong Kong tailors can still do. Some tailor shops do offer international shipping services. Once you make an appointment and get measured up at your desired tailor shop(s), tailors can send the finished suits to your home country direct.
2) How much – what’s your budget?
You can check their product price range online before you visit. If you have some specific requirements (e.g. the choice of fabrics, special cutting style), inquire / ask the tailors in advance.
3) Quality – how good the tailors are?
Wondering how good the tailors & their products are? You can go & check their customers’ reviews online (e.g. from an online tailoring platform, travel sites) and get a sense of the quality of the tailors.
