    Do you mean suites (i.e. sofas and chairs) or suits (jackets and trousers)?

    I gave up on the lower end tailors here in Hong Kong. None of the Indian or Chinese tailors could give me the right mix of quality and pricing.

    Settled on a good tailor in Bangkok at the end of the day.

    I'm very happy with http://www.taipanrow.com but I think they are a bit more upmarket than Bobby's.

    a good suit should cost no more then an ounce of gold, anything more is an extravangance, anything less pasimony
    So just for today you can go and blow $3301.74

    Any tailor that offers package deals "suit + shirts" for $2800 is sending his work to the same or similar sweat shops.

    My recommendation

    Peninsula Tailor -- 5 Lock Road 1st or 2nd floor. Run by a Shanhainese guy called Robert.

    More recommendations can be found here.

    for an ounce of gold

    kombuchakid, would you pay 3301 for just the suit or do you expect a shirt or extra trousers thrown in?
