    Default Hong Kong Custom Tailored Suit Shops

    Every gentleman needs their own custom tailored suit. Before you blow $4000 on some run of the mill custom suit, seriously consider going to Hong Kong, where century old custom tailored shops run by generations of Punjabi immigrants can create your own custom tailored suit along the highest standards of traditional British wear, at a fraction of the cost. Typically you can have a high end suit created for $1000 and even within 24 hours. Businessmen, celebrities and even world leaders including many US presidents have had their suits made here.

    Excellent! It pains me to know how much Stears must be paying for his suits. This would take the financial burden off him.

    I'm 100% sure Stears doesn't have custom suits, and definitely not of this caliber.

    Neither do I btw, but I am going to Hong Kong in a couple months and will have a couple made.

    Interesting. I can't imagine how much they'd try to charge for the same thing in the US

    For the same quality, crafstmanship and product, roughly $4000 and up. Everything's a rip off.

    I have known people who actually fly to Hong Kong or Shanghai for a weekend trip just to have suits made or to purchase high end items that are a fraction of the prices here.

    Tailor suits here are actually far more cheaper than in the western world. The perfect suit here usually costs between 250 to 1000 dollars.

    That's the problem with how the economy is structured in the US.
    Salespeople will be annoyingly friendly to you,but expect to get a product that's absolute shit unless you pay out the ass for it.

    That's why people fly into Hong Kong just to get suits made.

    There are several well renown custom tailored suit shops in the city, some of them established for a century, many but not all of them run by Punjabis who have been doing it for generations. They provide excellent service, tailor the suits to the highest of British standards, and you are paying a fraction of the cost.

    So if you have two of such suits made in the US, it'd cost $8000. If you fly to Hong Kong, that costs like $800, you can have two made, about $2000 or even less, and be way ahead several of thousands and have a great 5 day vacation.

    No way that oaf has any bespoken suits, he looks like a coathanger.


    I would probably choose Hong Kong over Savile Row, but I'm a yokel and only occasionally even wear a sports coat. I've only recently began to get all my button down shirts tailored and holy crap does it make a difference in how good it feels to put them on. i just have them brought in on the sides.

    It's the nature of business. I could easily drop 20-35% off my prices saving clients 3-10k$ but no one else does and this is the cream that allows me the nice things in life.

    And no one is complaining here.
