In Hong Kong, the reputed home of the 24-hour suit, a visit to Sam's is a tourist must, for VIP's and vacationers alike. Hong Kong's legendary Sam's Tailor is famous world-wide for its unquestioned reputation for quality and discretion - and a clientele seemingly culled from the pages of the International Who's Who.
Few of Hong Kong's annual nine million tourists and business visitors have not heard of Sam's. Many make a beeline for its Burlington Arcade premises on Kowloon's Nathan Road (the "Golden Mile" of tat-to-terrific bargains). It's almost as obligatory as a visit one to The Peak or Aberdeen's Jumbo floating restaurant. Sam's is as much an institution in Hong Kong as Macy's in New York or Harrods in London. Its location in one of the smaller territories on earth is no bar to the patronage of kings, queens, presidents, prime ministers and widely assorted glitterati.
