Best Tailors in Hong Kong – Index
Are you looking for a tailor in Hong Kong? Keep reading to discover 7 among the best tailors in the city. For each of them, we provide a short description, link to their website, address and opening time.
Punjab House (Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon)
Punjab House was founded in 1889 and is located on Nathan Road (Tsim Sha Tsui), Kowloon. It’s one of the oldest and most bespoke tailors in Hong Kong. They are a partner of Apsley Tailors in London and you can see that the Hong Kong store is now branded as Apsley Tailors as well.
Over the years, or should I say decades, Punjab House has catered to the British Army, Royal Navy, and primarily the business class of Hong Kong. They have sponsorships with British football clubs such as Fulham and West Ham United, but also with the Qatar World Cup.
With such notable achievements, you might think that Punjab House is beyond your budget. Sure, its prices are in the higher price segment, but you’ll find great deals and the prices are still well below tailors in major Western cities.
What I really like with Punjab House is that you can review the fabrics offered on the website. Thus, you can prepare in advance and ask for the codes of the fabrics you’re interested in. Not to forget, you can also book appointments directly on the website.
Prices for suits, shirts, dresses, and jackets are not displayed on the website. However, you can get a hint of the price levels by checking the different offers shown online.
At the moment I’m writing this article, you can get one suit with two pairs of pants and two shirts for HKD 3880 (USD 495). That’s a pretty good deal when taking into consideration that it’s one of the best tailors in Hong Kong.
They also offer “buy 2 shirts, get 1 for free” for as little as HKD 988 (USD 125). That equals to around USD 40 per shirt. I recommend you to give them a call or visit their website for up-to-date information.

Raja Fashions (Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon)
Raja Fashions was established in 1957 and has become one of the most popular tailors in Hong Kong. The brand has been run over three generations, nowadays, they don’t only have stores in Hong Kong, but also in Australia and Singapore.
Through its Trunk Shows, Raja Fashion travels frequently to more than a dozen countries overseas to consult with clients, promote their brand, and show their products.
What makes Raja Fashions unique is the wide selection of fabrics available, which is currently around 20,000. You can find plenty of useful information on their website and review the different fabrics.
Worth mentioning is that Raja supports the LGBTQ community and doesn’t discriminate or reject persons who wish to make tailor-made clothes.
The prices are in the higher range and cotton shirts start from USD 98. Prices for suits, on the other hand, starts from USD 650 and reach up to USD 1,800.
Thus, Raja Fashion might not be your cheapest option in Hong Kong, but they offer superior quality.
