Best Tailor, NRI, expanding in India
Hong Kong has an absolute army of tailors, and the city is rightly
famed for being able to stitch-up top quality suits, at bottom
dollar prices. The best Hong Kong tailors range from backstreet
dives to fine boutiques in five-star hotels. Hong Kong has a global
reputation for quality bespoke tailoring. Most of the poplar tailors
who attract customers from USA, UK, Scotland, Ireland, France,
Germany and Japan, besides China are Raja Fashions, Punjab
House, Jim's Tailor Workshop and
Sam the Tailor a.k.a Sams
Raja Fashions is already in the process of opening shop in Northern
India. Famed as much for his tailoring, as for his offbeat ads
and larger than life personality, Raja's excellent service and
value for money prices have seen the business double in size since
the Hong Kong handover. Raja regularly makes tours of both the
UK and the US and now has an established presence in both countries.
Raja continues to guarantee the best service and quality, while
his prices are generally more competitive than his rivals
Mr.Raja Daswani, CEO & Chief Fashion Designer said, with
20,000 fabrics in stock and over 500 people producing the garments,
our garments are value for money. We can offer the best of fabrics
and tailor-made clothes to measure that fit one's figure perfectly,
and all at very competitive prices. Why would anyone pay more
for a suit that does not fit them perfectly?
Having custom tailored suits for professional men and women
since 1957, the business has set itself a reputation that stretches
seamlessly across the globe. So impressive is their name in England,
home of bespoke tailoring, their customer base - said to include
the House of Lords and Downing street - covers all of the major
cities as well as Scotland and Ireland, the USA, France, Germany
"But in 1997, when Hong Kong was handed back to China, many
of our clients started leaving, so we felt we had to chase after
them," Mr Daswani says.
According to local media, he said, "I receive hundreds of
e-mails everyday. Customer measurements and photographs are emailed
back to the head office in Cameron Road here to be tailored within
four-six weeks by specialist tailors."
More than 1,000 suits are sold to British clients every week
Once the tailor of choice for Hong Kong's British colonial masters,
as well as the British military, Punjab House has over 100 years
of suit making experience behind them, and the tailors have as
big a following in the UK as they do in HK. Punjab produces some
of best suits in town and while they don't come cheap, the superior
quality makes their suits worth the investment. Famed for their
friendly service, Punjab House is a good way to take the stress
out of having a first-class suit made
Raja Fashions and Punjab House
are considered the Hong Kong's biggest tailors. Their customers
are former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, steel baron Lakshmi
Mitta, diplomats, military officers, eminent businessmen and politicians.
The custom shirts range in price from US$50 to US$500, depending
on the material. Suits range from US $350 to US$5,000, also depending
on the material.
You can select the fabrics from over 25,000 fabric ranging from

They say, your personal image is very important. Your clothes
and the way you carry yourself determine whether people take your
seriously, recognize you authority, and do what you want.
And that's as important for a job interview as it is trying
to get an upgrade to first class or simply convincing a clerk
to taking back an item without a receipt.
