Most gentlemen will know that finding a great suit isn’t just about having plenty of cash to spare and a good tailor — it’s also a large investment of time to research different options, find the right style, compare prices, etc. Unfortunately, not everyone in Hong Kong has that luxury, with our busy work schedules and various other social commitments. Nonetheless, that doesn’t mean you need to lower your standards or expectations in finding a great fitted suit. If you’re a business professional in need of a suit to impress without the time to go searching for one, we’ve got a simple solution for you.
A revolutionary concept born straight out of Hong Kong, the Suit Artisan is a brand-new businesswear online store that seamlessly combines the convenience of online shopping with a custom-made offline experience for the best of both worlds. With just a few simple clicks on their website (or even directly via whatsapp), you’ll be guaranteed a quality suit delivered straight to your doorstep in just 24 hours. The service also includes a professional tailoring service by a ‘Suitman’ who comes to you to provide you with instant alterations advice, making sure that the suit you receive is going to fit you perfectly.
“There is a great demand in people looking for qualitative product almost instantly and with a very short lead time. By integrating the shopping experience online with impeccable customer service and quality product offline, we aim to offer a seamless journey to our customer that was not available before in the menswear retail industry,” says brand ambassador and managing director Andy Cheung, who’s garnered over 10 years of working experience in the menswear industry specialising in suits and business wear, as well as contemporary menswear at international luxury brands including Gieves & Hawkes and Durban.
Thanks to the close relationships Cheung has established over his decade-long career, Suit Artisan is able to partner with some of the most outstanding menswear factories (used by luxury brands such as Hugo Boss) to produce the highest quality of business wear. This includes using only premium European fabrics from world-renowned fabric mills such as the century-old Legguino s.p.a. from Italy, which is commonly used to create ready-to-wear for Louis Vuitton, Kenzo and Paul Smith. But that’s not all: Other than excellent craftsmanship and superb fabrication, Suit Artisan is also especially tailor-made for the Asian market, with suits featuring the Asian block cut and softer fabrics to fit customers in the region.
“Our decent block fit is developed from the mass data that we have collected over the years by studying body types of hundreds of Asian gents,” Cheung explains. “Fabric wise, the Asian market also has a different demand than the European market. Asians prefer subtle patterns in soft and drapery fabric, while European and UK markets prefer bold patterns in dry-hand feel fabrics.”
An online store that comes with personalised offline service, Suit Artisan is the modernised solution to your wardrobe dilemma, achieved without the need to compromise on time, quality or the personal shopper experience.
