Information on Custom Suits and Bespoke Tailoring

Frequently asked questions about custom make clothing.

It usually takes 2-3 days to make a good quality custom suit in Hong Kong. Allow time for 1-3 fittings over the course of your stay. With advance notice we generally can make clothes in 1-2 days as well but have to plan for it.

You should have as many as you need in order to have the custom suits and custom clothing fit right.

Prices in general depend on the quality of fabrics you choose. What makes the difference in price is usually the cost of fabric. Suits typically need 3.5-4 yards of fabrics and fabrics per yard can range anywhere from HKD 80-HKD 1800 per yard.

Depends on how often you wear them. Pants tend to wear out alot quicker and with heavy use (2-3 times a week) will start to wear out underneath the crotch area. In order to prolong the life of the suit, we recommend ordering an extra pair of pants when ordering the suit. This way your suit will last you at least 5+ years.

Hong Kong is the best place in the world to buy custom suits, custom shirts, custom tuxedos and custom sport coats. This is because it has world class and experienced skilled cutters and pattern makers. It also has a no import and sales tax which make it easy for fabric distributors such as Ermenegildo Zegna to import fabrics.

As least as possible. We recommend suits to be dry cleaned only 1-2 times a year as the more you dry clean, the quicker the dry cleaning chemicals damage the fabric.

Shirts should be washed and not dry cleaned as the dry cleaning damages the fusing used in the collar and cuffs of the shirts. If you want to prolong the life of the shirts, get them washed and then pressed.
