Richard - Manager
Shanghainese craftsmanship is one of the special features of Hong Kong Tailors. It is what attracts the world to make suits in Hong Kong. It is a key factor that brought Hong Kong Tailoring onto the international stage, on par with Savile Row and Neapolitan Tailoring.

Richard Cheung of British Textile is one of the few remaining experts in such an exquisite piece of tailoring skill. "Suits constructed with Shanghainese workmanship are simply more durable. It also brings life to a suit in the details such as the lapel roll." says Richard. "Yes, it costs us more and takes longer to construct a suit in such a way, as hundreds more processes are involved.

We insist on this technique as we do not want to make suits that fall apart after 6 months." British Textile, originally started as a fabric supplier in 1964, began its bespoke tailoring service in the 1970s.

Richard Cheung inherited the skills and the company from his father in 1984 and have not looked back. They are located conveniently in the heart of Central, Hong Kong.

    I have previously been using A-Man Hing Cheong in Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Started to feel that the prices have been a little too steep for me, so wanted to try out other tailors and see if there's a cheaper alternative. Saw the good reviews on British Textile, so gave them a try. I was pleasantly surprised! I would say the quality is very close to the suits I got from A-Man Hing Cheong and considering the much better price, love it!

    I was recommended by a friend to try out British Textile. My friend told me specifically to look for the one in The Galleria, 9 Queens' Road Central, as apparently there are quite a few tailors around with similar names. Suit was very nicely made. Love it!
  • British Textile
    Not cheap, but very conveniently located, and it is a wonderful suit!

    I was looking for an upgrade as I used to go to other cheaper tailors at $3000-4000 per suit. Wanted to look for something better this time around. The suit is so nice that I am not sure whether I'll ever go back to the cheaper options again! A nice tailor-made suit is just so addictive!

    Tried a few other tailors in Hong Kong before. Was recommended by a friend to visit British Textile. Much better than many of the other tailors that I've been to before and pricing is also reasonable.
