Tailor-made clothes are a speciality of the Hong Kong tourist trade, and wherever you go in Tsim Sha Tsui you’ll be accosted by Indian tailors offering this service. Sales pitches are hardcore and prices are relatively low, but not rock bottom; a man’s cashmere suit, with a couple of shirts and ties, will cost upwards of $1500, more likely twice this. Don’t commit yourself without knowing exactly what’s included. Expect at least two or three fittings over several days if you want a good result. You’ll need to pay about fifty percent of the price as a deposit.
