Check out Simpson Sin Tailor

15-19 Carnarvon Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong, China
http://www.simpsonsintailor.com.hk/

I never had a suit made by them but I have a few friends who swear by him. They make sure to get a few made whenever they are in HK. Simpson Sin was also featured in Anthony Bourdain's - The Layover.

As I recommended before, go with A-Man Hing. Saville row quality without the cost.

I have heard bad things about Princeton, but no personal experiences.

L&K Bespoke Tailor is also the best tailor in Hong Kong. He sells bespoke suits at reasonable prices. I have bought many suits from him.

I'm going to have to save this thread. As many of you know, I'm not of the height of a typical man. I've been having Tom James make my suits and shirts here in the US for 20 years now after just acknowledging that even my favorite tall local tall shop (just recently out of business) could never get a suit exactly right for me modified from off the rack). But Tom James is expensive and I'm told that the tailors in Hong Kong and other parts of Asia deserve a look. The only issue is that I've never been there in all of my travels and I'd like to do this in person rather than just sending measurements.

A Man won't make your suits based on measurement you send in. He needs to measure and fit you. The cost for his suits depends on the fabric you select. On the average I pay about 18000 HKD per suit.
