WW Chan: Hong Kong is famous for it’s tailors, although to say they’re infamous would be equally justified.
There are countless “tailors” in Hong Kong offering same day turn around for full bespoke suits, for a couple of hundred dollars. Anyone who’s spent any time having something made bespoke will know that an awful suit, in terms of both fit and construction, is all that can result from such low cost and rapid turn-around.
The one tailoring house which actually deserves your business and stands alongside many of the world’s best tailors is WW Chan. I’ll write more in an article in the next fortnight, but for now, it’s worth noting that they’re currently in Australia and will be in Sydney and Melbourne for the duration of this week, taking appointments for bespoke commissions.
They’re known for a classically British silhouette, but in recent years have responded to the demand for softer, Italian tailoring and can offer either of these styles which differ significantly in terms of fit and construction.
I’ll be there (Sydney) on Friday afternoon to commission a suit and I recommend anyone who wants a world class bespoke suit, for a fraction of the cost of British or European tailors, go and see them. Booking via details below.
Melbourne: Today (Tuesday 28th) – Marriott Hotel, Corner Exhibition and Lonsdale Streets.
Sydney: Thursday and Friday 30th and 31st May – Sheraton on the Park, 161 Elizabeth Street.
2 piece suits starting at a shade over $3,000 AUD.
