Sam's Tailor

Sam's Tailor

Map
94 Nathan Rd., Burlington Arcade Ground Floor, Hong Kong,

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.
