From socialites to entrepreneurs, we ask six of Hong Kong’s most stylish men to reveal their favourite brands for getting suited and booted
“My go-to brand for jackets and suits is Versace. It’s Italian tailoring at its best and the jackets fit my frame like a glove. Also, they use the most beautiful fabrics. What’s not to love?”
“I’m always looking out for designers who put a twist on a traditional black-tie look. My favourites at the moment are Tom Ford and Lanvin. I like the different fabrics they use in their bow ties as it gives your look that little bit of texture.”
“I have a collection of shoes from some of the best gentlemen’s shoemakers around the world. My favourite so far is English shoemaker George Cleverley. I really like their graceful, elongated, chisel-toe shoes.”
I’m in love with Burberry’s slim-fit trousers as they fit me like a glove. I especially love the Travel Tailoring memory fabric as it’s ideal for someone who’s always on the go.”
I buy almost all my shirts from PYE. The shirts have the perfect fit, are easy to care for and are durable. I also like the fact that it’s a local brand. When I wear the shirts abroad I often get compliments and it’s nice to be able to say the shirt is from Hong Kong.
"Before any red-carpet event I visit my barber in Po Hing Fong. He’s known as Uncle Ray. In terms of hair products, I like to use L’Oréal Professional Tecni Art gel, but for a more casual look I use Oribe Crème For Style or Rock Hard Gel. I can’t stand how some hair products smell, but these all smell good and wash away easily.”
