Founded in 1966, Princeton Custom Tailors is one of the larger of the Hong Kong bespoke tailoring firms. But, despite its size, it is still a family business; it was founded by Dennis Sin, and is now run by his daughter Roxanna Wai Sze Sin.

The company appears to have no connection to Princeton apart from its name--a wise marketing decision by Mr. SIn back in 1966, when Ivy Style was firmly in the forefront and Princeton was its epicenter!

This suit is a lovely example of Hong Kong bespoke. Cut from a fairly heavyweight worsted wool in a classic pinstripe, the jacket is a two-button jacket with subtle darts. Although it is a two button jacket is appears to have been cut as a 2/1 jacket (i.e., the top button isn't intended to be fastened, just as the top button in a 3/2 isn't intended to be used.) It has a single center vent and three button cuffs. The shoulders are slightly padded--closer to a British jacket here than an American Ivy league jacket.

The jacket is half-canvassed and fully lined. It features extensive handwork on the lapel, collar, placket, and pocket flaps.

The trousers are flat front and uncuffed. The interior waistband has "Ban Rol" sections on each side to ensure your shirts stay tucked in!

This suit is in excellent condition. It appears to have been slightly taken in at the back along the center seam--this might have been done for its original client on his inital fitting.

Asking just $45, or offer, boxed, shipped and insured in the USA.
