Hong Kong Tatler Ball 2018: Best Dressed Men
As the recipient of 2015’s Most Stylish Man award, Peter Cheung is always one to rock the red carpet in an unexpected look. This year, he wowed the crowd with an all-black ensemble topped with a vinyl trench coat. And let’s not forget the jewels—they’re by Van Cleef and Arpels, of course.
You can always count on Charles Yang to bring a dash of colour to the red carpet. This year, he opted for a three-piece tuxedo with a matching jacket and vest.
As one of Hong Kong's biggest watch collectors and current head of the Greater China mission of the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie, Carson Chan looked dapper in black tie. Chan’s timepiece of choice is also worth noting—the 1967 Universal Genève Polerouter (designed by Gerald Genta).
Christopher Owen kept things fresh with a velvet dinner jacket, a dark blue shirt and black trousers. Looking for that pop of colour? It’s in the pocket square, which coincidentally matched his wife, Victoria Tang-Owen’s accessories. Talk about a perfect pair.
Co-founder of CrossFit 852, Jamie Lee kept it classic in a Canali satin-trimmed wool tuxedo. Details matter! We love the wrapped buttons and the matching bowtie.
Jonathan, better known as JC amongst friends, is no stranger to the red carpet. He dressed to this year’s theme and wore a Saint Laurent tuxedo jacket depicting a beaded solar system, which earned him a spot on our best-dressed list.
As our February 2018 cover star and this year’s recipient of the Diamond Award, Peter Woo, looked the part in a classic black tuxedo with a silk scarf collar lapel.
In a sea of black tuxedos, Jimmy Tang’s tuxe in midnight blue certainly stood out. Tang matched his midnight blue tuxedo with a black grosgrain trim lapel with a white shirt and black patterned bow tie.
Sunny Tan looked dapper in a custom-made tuxedo jacket with a thin velvet lapel, and even matched the bow tie to the trim.
With the theme "Science. Space. The Future" it's no wonder that Francis Cheng opted for some sparkle and shine for the big night. Cheng sported a slim-cut metallic checked suit with a rose gold bowtie as an accent piece.
As the head of PR for Mr Porter and Net-a-Porter, it comes as no surprise that Nick Troedson made the cut for one of the best dressed this year. Troedson dons a head-to-toe look by Gucci.
As one of the region’s most sought-after hair stylists, Kim Robinson proves that he’s as good with his wardrobe as he is with hair. Robinson sported an all-black look by Gucci. We loved the exaggerated peak lapel of his velvet jacket.
If you don’t follow Brandon Chau on Instagram, then you probably should—it's filled with his passion for the finer things in life (vintage cars, sartorial style, fine wines, just to name a few).
Brandon looked dapper in a white tuxedo jacket with black trousers. Finishing touches? A pair of dark blue dress shoes, to complement his wife, Jenny Chau’s blue gown.
Ryan Sun kept it classic in a timeless black tuxedo, but upon a closer look, you’ll notice a diamond brooch attached to the chest pocket. “It’s a QR code”, Sun revealed during our red carpet interview, “and it links to my Instagram account”.
As a founding partner and creative director of Buzz Concepts, Benedict Ku is often seen around town sporting a cool rock n’ roll look. Ku kept it edgy at the ball with a three-piece tuxedo with white trims and buttons, and even sported a pair of black and white wingtips for the occasion.
