Good tailor in Vancouver? - Page 24

post #346 of 502

I need a recommendation for a Tailor in Vancouver that could make a dress shirt. Can anyone suggest one?

 

Also what is the average cost of having a tailor custom make a dress shirt compared to purchasing one at a major retailer?

Any tailors that can work on a peacoat?
post #348 of 502
^ Will and Joy at Oakridge Tailors can do it.

I asked this a long time ago, but has anyone found someone that can do chainstitching in Vancouver or within Canada?

I recently picked up my first pair of custom trousers from Samson Wardrobes on Seymour.

 

The trousers fit perfectly, and the details I requested (high rise, fishtail back, slight break...) were just as I requested. The price was also very reasonable.

 

I will be going back and highly recommend this establishment.

Where can I go to get a crotch rip repaired?

24oz denim.

Is Albert's Tailor okay?
Can they take care of it?

I use Karman Tailor on Robson street. They're good but pricey. If it can wait, take it to Stitch Well in Burnaby - 7671 6th St, Burnaby, BC V3N 3M8
(778) 397-2062 . I got a bunch of dress shirts taken in for $12/shirt (body and sleeve).

Wondering if anyone knows about Blair Shapera - apparently he does bespoke at around 1500, as well as has a custom MTM line around 700 (fused, unfortunately). He is associated with the name Matz-Wozny - not sure if this is a brand of suiting or his own label?
I'm looking for a first suit, and while fused isn't somewhere I really want to go, for my first I'm on a bit of a budget (student life) and so heading up to 1500 for bespoke isn't comfortable.
Has anyone tried Blair Shapera out?

Oh, secondly, anyone know what happened to S. Lampman ltd? I've heard they're set up in Kerrisdale, and have some mean deals on MTM Samuelsohn - but their number (261-2750) is out of service. Have they gone under?

Pat Cocco did my wedding tux.  It's a beautiful garment and he's a nice man.  The work (which was a gift) wasn't cheap, though.  But he turned it around in record time and with a smile.  If you have the clams, and can make the hump out to Burnaby, I'd recommend him.

In my case, they thought my sleeves were of adequate length, but I wanted to take off a full inch, to which they thought it would be too short, but that's how I wanted them done. Keep in mind that judging from the racks of clothes, looks like they're very busy of late.

I've had them hem some suits from STP for me, and agree they are very nice to deal with. I had the same experience getting them to pin my sleeves and pants as short as I wanted, but once we got over the initial discussion (and once I cam back a second time and he could see that I really liked it that way) we were fine. I get the impression that most of his customers like sleeves and pants to be longer, no doubt the same with other tailors, so the occasional odd duck who wants a shorter hem is unusual.

Couple that with the fact that "too short" is hard to fix, if at all ... a tailor's reluctance to go 'short' right off the bat is understandable. The last thing they want is a disgruntled customer with a problem that is
  1. of the customer's making due to his initial requests at the original fitting, and ...
  2. which the customer does not realise, and ...
  3. which is unfixable.

Yes. Lots of good work altering suits from the internet. They took in the sleeves of a "working button holes" suit from the shoulders, and did a good job of it.

Matz-Wozny is a custom tailor downtown. They get a lot of work making formal court attire for judges and lawyers, but no doubt can do other stuff too.

I'll put a plug in for Stitch It in Richmond. I had a suit and blazer that had that shoulder divoting/puckering thing. Normally I go to Oakridge Tailors for my alterations but Bill wouldn't even touch it. I had to go to quite a few places to find one that would even attempt it. Modernize Tailors worked on the blazer but botched the job. I ended up at Stitch It, and really had to explain quite explicitly what I wanted; but once I did, they actually did a pretty good job of it. The blazer still doesn't look quite right; but it's not of their doing. On the other hand, the suit alteration turned out pretty nicely.

Does anyone know any good tailors that make good mtm dress shirts?

I'm still new to this kind of thing, so i'm looking for a tailor that can offer me advice on a slim fitting dress shirt, since i'm not exactly sure on the details but have a general idea of what i want

Has anyone heard of Vancouver Custom Suits? Apparently a sister company to Toronto Custom Suits. They have a Groupon for suit and shirt at $599 which they say is 58% off.

Located in Yaletown, website does not specify full canvas or not.

i was coming in here to post this. i didnt find a thread on it, and i've never heard of them. apparently they started out in Toronto and just opened a store here in Yaletown

from the groupon questions, it states that the jackets are Half-Canvased. they also say its Super 150 Italian wool-cashmere blend suit. The linings are Bemberg silk

From what I understand, you go to the store for a fitting, then its shipped overseas (my guess asia) then 4 weeks later it arrives and you go in to try it on.

i dunno, what do you guys think. Good deal? I was thinking of returning my Indochino suit, and trying this cause it seems you get an actual person checking your fit after its made.

Samsons in Vancouver is really good. I recently bought a suit from there and it fits perfectly! They also make great custom shirts at good prices.
