Hong Kong Hot Spots to Shop: Moustache on Aberdeen Street

Situated on the steep hillside that forms the border between the Central and Sheung Wan districts of Hong Kong, Moustache, established in 2009, is home to the shop’s namesake brand of men’s tropical casual wear-slim cotton suits, lightweight cotton voile shirts, Bermuda shorts, swimming trunks, t-shirts and underwear, all cut with an impeccable eye for fit and details.

The shop itself, decorated with an eclectic selection of books and curiosities, including a traffic shopping bust of Dr. Sun Yat Sen, patron saint of Moustache, sitting in the window wearing a vintage bowtie; it also home to one of the city’s major talked about and original bespoke tailoring firms.

Their house cut borrows from both classic English and Italian tailoring- jacket with a natural shoulder and high armhole, a slightly tapered trouser with a big nod towards the Hong Kong of the 1960s: think Tony Leung in "In The Mood For Love".

They like lightweight Japanese fabrics, tropical weight wools, cottons, linen and silk blends, just as much as they like fine Italian worsted suitings.

A fantastic range of soft leather travel accessories produced with the Italian design firm Stiibu. Inspired by the legendary Memphis Design Group of the late 1970s and early 1980s, each piece is crafted by skilled artisans using Italian novalatta, deerskin and napa leather, creating a rich and funky palette of colours and textures.
