to cut a long story short:
i moved to HK around a year ago and
since then it was even harder to find clothes for my anyways akward body (i am 6'7", ever tried to fit asian size clothing
Hong Kong is famous for its cheap tailors that make really well fitting clothes and
thats what i tried...got myself some shirts there which fitted really well, but
after all i just couldnt get along with these business shirt fabrics they offered me there.
As you probably know HK is home to a lot of fashion sourcing companies
and buying offices for bigger brands (thats what brought me here as well)
and there are a lot of shops by chinese fabric manufacturers all over the city
(especially in Sham Shui Po, if anybody is more interested in stuff like this)
that offer their stuff in wholesale quantities over here.
The possibilities to choose from are HUGE and after some time i went there and just bought
some simple fabrics that i thought were nice and asked my tailor to make me a shirt with that stuff..
so this shirt came out really damn good at a ridiculous cheap price and i told myself i wont buy shirts in retail anymore,
i just get everything custom made with the details i want to have!
I know in the US or Europe its quite expensive to get a tailor made shirt in a good quality so I thought i might share this
with other, like minded people who are sick of buying damn expensive stuff that doesnt really fit in the end...
what i got here is some really heavy chambray fabric in a bright blue colour as a classic button down shirt with single pocket on the left side
..surface looks quite rough and so is the feeling of the fabric, but i dig it.
but whatever check the pictures and let me know what you think!
Im willing to arrange this for anyone who asks me and ship anywhere if youre interested...i have this tailor my friends and me use for quite a long time and they never disappoint!
All details are possible to change: collar, cuffs, thread color, etc.
I got more fabric on hand, more pictures later
