No.   They started in their fathers workshop as soon as they could walk and were trained by their family. As were their fathers and their grand fathers and their great grandfathers and so on.   Many Asian tailoring families go back many generations and in some cases have a family history of tailoring for well over a century.   Our main specialist bespoke tailors have a training arrangement with a Savile Row tailoring house whereby they receive training on a quarterly...
  True but we're talking extremely high class tailoring here at prices that represent real value..Do you know any Australian tailor that will fully hand stitch a suit for under a grand including the cost of the cloth? The tailor that we use for suits of this standard makes nothing else but suits for bespoke tailors (mostly in Hong Kong) and the standard of tailoring we are demanding is higher than he normally uses for them. Although, if you're happy with machine stitching...
For those interested in world class fabrics and tailoring at extraordinary low prices may I suggest you at least have a look HERE.   Those that are thinking of buying an extremely high grade suit would not want to miss this strictly limited offer. If you're interested send me a private message or email me from the website .
Even a standard 10-12 weeks for a Thailand factory made suit is beyond ridiculous. Our standard lead time is 3-4 weeks and that's for a suit hand made by a real tailor not machine made in a factory.   Even our completely hand stitched high end suits only have a 6-8 week delivery time   Waiting months for a standard suit is a sign of a company with no idea.
My question is how many "tailors" today actually make their own suits? How many "tailors" offer a true bespoke service today where they measure you, do a second fitting at baste stage then a third fitting with the completed suit then the final alterations?   Having a bespoke suit made sounds great in practice but the tailor that does the initial consultation is unlikely to be the same person that actually makes your suit. When you go into the store did you interrupt...
We can help you with a hand tailored full canvas suit made with a bespoke quality Clissold or Holland & Sherry fabric from as low as $699.   You can have it made to measure or a standard off the rack size. Have a read OF THIS for more information.   Also you get to choose the standard of tailoring used to construct your suit. You can read more about this HERE
  I think you may find it's more like 300% at his standard pricing
I do recommend working with a tailor however many people think that once they have a tailor measure them their suit will fit perfectly. I've had some amazingly abusive emails from customers complaining that their suits didn't fit however once I send them back a copy of their measurements and ask them to compare the measurements with the finished suit it's surprising how the tone of their subsequent emails changes from the first.   I had one customer visit a tailor and...
  I think it shows just how cheaply large companies can have factory made fused canvas suits made. I think most people would be surprised that after you add in the discounts for their massive volume just how little they pay for the suits. It gets to the stage where the actual suit is only a small portion of the total cost of actually getting a suit to a customer and it works out cheaper to remake the suit rather than pulling one for production and allowing for the cost of...
It's definitely the time of year. Surprisingly I have had very few fit issues. It's just little mistakes that are more annoying than anything. While these things occasionally happen I've had a number in suits made just before or just after the Spring break. Another yesterday where the customer ordered working cuffs and the suit was shipped with standard cuffs despite the request being on the order form twice.   While we will remake the jackets under our no worries...
