Sam's Tailor

94 Nathan Rd.
Burlington Arcade Ground Floor
Hong Kong, China
TEL: 852 2367 9423

Loquacious Sam (whose real name is Manu Melwani) has suited up everyone from George Bush Senior to the late Luciano Pavarotti to David Bowie. An Indian-born, old-school bespoke tailor (who began his career in Hong Kong making uniforms for the British Army), he routinely does two or three fittings to get a customer’s suit just so. The time spent with him is a pleasure; besides offering up plenty of charming banter, Sam often serves up cold cans of beer. He’s super-quick, but if he doesn’t finish your suit in time for you to carry it home, he’ll send it to you via courier.

Insider Tip:

If you’re headed to Happy Valley, be sure to ask Sam for the skinny on the week’s races. He’s an avid fan and owns two racehorses of his own.
