Home >> About Us

For over half a century, William Yu Expert Tailors has had the privilege of dressing many different customers from around the world - members of royalty; Hollywood film stars, CEOs and those who demand perfection in style and sophistication.

We specialize in custom-made clothes for men and women. Every garment piece by us is cut and hand-made exclusively in Hong Kong by a group of old Shanghai tailors. Our range of fabrics, including wools and cashmeres from top Italian and British mills, is unrivalled too.

We first opened our doors in 1953 at the iconic Peninsula Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui, and had remained there until recently. Although we have moved to a larger premise in the same neighborhood, all our garments still bear the same legacy of excellent bespoke tailoring from our late founder Mr. William Yu, a Shanghai-born master tailor celebrated for his workmanship. Mr. Michael Poon, the only apprentice of Mr Yu since the 1950s, is now the shop’s Managing Director.

Apart from heart-felt hospitality, we provide a high level of personalization, creating the perfect fit for each customer’s body shape and contours for wearing comfort. This uncompromising approach to tailoring has won us repeat business, as loyal clients come back to us year after year.

For those unable to visit us personally, we travel twice a year to the United States, Europe and Japan to take their measurements and orders.
