An advocate for keeping it simple and classic, he has a keen eye for picking out a sharp looking suit with the perfect cut. Check out five of our favourite looks by Chau and learn how you too can dress like the perfect gentleman:

Chau’s fondness for finely tailored suits is evident. A polka dot embroidered tie is matched with a crisp white shirt under a bespoke navy blue single-breasted blazer by Hong Kong tailor WW Chan. Chau credits WW Chan as one of the best tailors in Hong Kong. 

 Pattern Perfect In Cesare Attolini

A more casual and relaxed look, with Chau sporting a brown tweed jacket with a windowpane pattern from master Naples tailor Cesare Attollini. The windowpane pattern, which adds a touch of flamboyant style, was brought back into vogue by Tom Ford, who’s used it in numerous collections. Chau completes the look with brown flannel trousers and a fine pair of desert suede boots.

Double-Breasted Suaveness In Musella Dembech

Chau opts for a double-breasted light-grey pinstripe suit from Musella Dembech and finishes off the look with a stylish men’s carry case. Notice how just the right amount of shirt cuff is revealed below the jacket cuff. The recommended amount the shirtsleeve should extend is one-half inch below.

 Effortless Cool In Camps De Luca

Chau appreciates quality and craftsmanship in a suit and this dark navy ensemble by Camps De Luca is no exception. The single-breasted jacket is complimented by a fitted blue shirt. It’s clear that Chau is a classic-style devotee. Unlike the flamboyant style of his late father Kai-Bong Chau, he opts for a more understated look and holds firm to his belief that less is more.

Three-Piece Charm In Anderson & Sheppard

Chau wears a three-piece charcoal-grey pinstripe suit by Anderson & Sheppard. The addition of the waistcoast makes this look a particularly distinctive one. Since three-piece suits are rarer these days, it’s one way to ensure you stand out from the crowd in the sea of two-pieces. The three-piece suit also offers versatility, as you can wear any combination of the pieces at virtually anytime.
