When did shopping for menswear get so darn irresistible? From savvy suits to guys’ grooming and elegant accessories, the Hong Kong retail scene has undergone a quiet revolution, offering more than a twist on the classic boutique experience. You want a cocktail bar on the side? An edgy barbershop? Wow-worthy wallpaper? You’re definitely being served with these two Central emporiums…
HK has no shortage of tailors, but with 70 stores worldwide, Euro pro Suitsupply certainly knows a thing or two about style, and even offers a private space for MTM. We’re blown away by the decor, which teams graphic camo-esque and hyper-patterned wall prints with radical fashion photos and sculptural pendant lights.
In-house tailoring handles alternations on your newly purchased suit, ensuring an impeccable fit, usually handled while you wait. You can also design your own suit, with a choice of over 70 fabrics, six fits, and separate jacket and trouser options. Shirts can also be whipped up from scratch, with luxe informal wear and accessories on tap.
Pop-up success Attire House has opened a two-storey flagship that includes a swish bar and barbershop. Inspired by a gentleman’s abode, it includes a menswear outfitter, offering a mod take on classic men’s tailoring, with colour-coordinated displays of slick suits and shirts.
Need a wet shave, haircut, facial massage or hangover treatment? The retro-hip barbershop draws on the expertise of rated Seoul snipper HERR. Shopping proving thirsty work? Japanese-import, no-res Bar de Luxe mixes exquisite cocktails, under bartender Yuriko Naganuma. Kampai!
