Hello Styleforum users, I’m Alex and I'd like to start off this thread by introducing my company Moda Republic, which specializes in quality tailored men’s and women’s suits, shirts and winter coats. My brother Chris and I are very excited to be a part of Styleforum and look forward to interacting with the folks here.
We are an online tailor that also has a physical presence in Hong Kong. When we started this company, it was out of a love for clothing and because we had a difficult time finding a tailor in Hong Kong that offered both quality fabric AND construction at prices that didn't break the bank. Many of our friends felt the same way which is what spurred us to start Moda Republic. We started this company with a focus on offering high quality tailored clothing at an affordable price. We believe in having a wide range of quality fabrics so that even those with a lower budget can still have something that is well-constructed without having to settle for shoddy workmanship, and over time upgrade to finer fabrics. I truly believe that what we offer at our price point is much higher quality and something that customers will notice.
Our team of tailors have over 30-40 years experience and we even opened a workshop located in Hong Kong that manufactures a portion of our suits. My brother and I were very adamant about a workshop in Hong Kong out of respect for a trade that is sadly, slowly disappearing in Hong Kong as many companies move their production to China. We also have a factory in China, but our workshop in Hong Kong acts as a school as well, where candidates that work for us are under constant tutelage by our tailors. What we hope to achieve by bringing these young apprentices aboard is two fold, to share our passion towards suits with them, and give them an environment where they can grow this passion and hopefully over time bring this trade back to Hong Kong. If you’re ever in Hong Kong, feel free to drop by our store for visit and watch our tailors in action.
Some quick facts and information about what I think sets us apart:
1) Fabrics: All of our fabrics are quality fabrics and I'm sure you will notice a significant difference between what we have and those offered by other online tailors.
2) Construction: The construction of our suits are all half canvas on our website and there is an option for full canvas as well for an additional cost. We also offer fused suits for those looking for a slightly cheaper option. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details
3) Virtual Tailor Service: We offer a virtual tailor service where we will setup a video conference and guide you through any questions about measurements.
4) Stylist: Our Moda Republic stylists will be able to help you locally in your city with measuring and offer you a greater selection of fabric samples to chose from as they will have 6-10 swatch books. Right now we only offer this in Canada (Toronto and Vancouver specifically) but we hope to roll this service out to cities around the world (do email us at email@example.com if you want to be a stylist and earn commissions for your sales).
