About
For locals and visitors alike, getting a suit stitched in Hong Kong's bustling Kowloon district has always been a popular activity. The ability to put one together in 24 hours has earned the city's tailors a global reputation for speediness. However, many believe that the idea of such reckless speed and rush defeats the whole purpose of getting a tailor made suit. Tucked away in the quieter part of Kowloon, Empire International Tailors practices a timely yet more delicate form of bespoke tailoring. Since its founding in 1983 by Anthony Asif, the eldest of three brothers, the family-run business has distinguished itself from the rest with a tailoring philosophy focused solely on personalization. Overseen by Anthony himself, each garment is handmade in Empire’s workshop by master tailors with an average 40 years of experience. Measurements, fit requirements, and other details are carefully studied to mold a personalized, well-fitted, and comfortable garment for the wearer. Empire’s successful approach to bespoke tailoring has earned it a global reputation as a favored and reliable spot in Hong Kong’s world-famous tailoring scene. We believe that quality tailoring isn’t just about speed, It's about the process devoted to perfecting the final product to the wearer’s needs.

One of the best tailors I have ever experienced. Tailored a suit with them recently. They are attention to details and very efficient. Also, willing to give advise on which material suits best. The whole process was easy and the finished suit was perfect.

Thank you for the amazing experience.

I recently stopped by Empire to pick up a few suits. I've never purchased a tailored suit previously, so I really had no idea how the process worked. Luckily, the amazing staff patiently walked through the entire process. However, the

Highly recommend these guys. Great experience at an extremely good price point. Nick and Mark know their stuff and will guide you on what’s best based on your preferences e.g., I showed them a photo from their Instagram and then they tweaked it based on my stature e.g., I have one shoulder higher than the other etc.. They’re super focused, responsive and diligent. I got a suit and a shirt and will be back for more. They even worked to a tight timeline I had before a work trip, which was very kind.

I came in to get a suit for my wedding. I had a specific look in mind and the staff was patient and helpful as I laboriously looked through hundreds of fabric samples.

I had the unfortunate situation where I was measured up for a suit and before I could have my follow up appointment, COVID travel restrictions meant I couldn't visit Empire to finalise my suit fitting. Mark and the team have given me fantastic customer service during this difficult time. They sent me a "mocked up" suit to see how it fitted, then arranged a video call to check the fit in detail. They then adjusted the main suit and couriered it back to me in London. I've been very impressed with the customer service. Whilst I'm disappointed that I couldn't have the full bespoke service in person, the team have done everything possible to overcome the challenges faced by COVID.

I recently had a shirt, vest and trousers made for my sister’s wedding last week. It was such a great experience working with the staff there! I was so pleased with the service when fitting as well as quality of the materials. I would recommend anyone to go there!

I visited Empire International Tailors to enquire about my wedding suit on the recommendation from a colleague. I was so blown away with the service that I also ordered suits for my groomsmen (including four year old and eleven year old nephews!). I really appreciated the attention to detail offered by Empire at the multiple follow-up fittings I had. The quality of the products was amazing and they looked fantastic on our wedding pictures.

I recently came back to Empire in order to get fitted for a work suit. Once again, I was so pleased with my experience that I also ended up ordering two shirts as well.

I have recommended Empire to my colleagues as well. Amazing products and amazing service. I will always use Empire for as long as I am in Hong Kong!

I travel a lot for business and get tailored suits done in Italy, London, Shanghai, and now Hong Kong. I must say Empire Taylors has been the best experience so far. Not your 3-day turn-around rush job. If you have some time to invest, they will craft a perfectly fitted suite, with multiple fitting to ensure its just right. With a great selection of fabrics and different price/quality options it’s easy to find what you are looking for. I highly recommend them.

From the moment I stepped into the shop I was impressed by Empire Tailors' professionalism and attention to detail. This was the first time I have bought a suit in Hong Kong and I was made to feel very comfortable and was not rushed at all when deciding which suits were best for me. In total I visited the shop four times from start to finish, first to choose the fabric, second for the first fitting, and the last two times were for minor adjustments and trying on the final pieces. I'm very impressed by the quality and fit of the suits which are both very comfortable which is necessary in such a hot and humid city. I cannot thank Andy and his team enough for making my purchase so worthwhile.
