tailors in seoul korea? - Page 32

post #466 of 515

I think it was 4만원. For some brands, they are more expensive, for others, they aren't. When it comes to Carmina, for example, you'd be hard pressed to find a better selection and a better value (though the latter may only hold true to those purchasing from overseas as the VAT is deducted). Alden and Edward Green, the markup is pretty vicious.

 

As far as the details on Lussoso--half canvassed, a small amount of handwork but mostly machine stitched. Happy with the lapels and the cut. Very happy with their pants (higher rise than a lot of what you see here). The basted fitting has a medium amount of basting. 

 

 

Two from them, both linen (Click to show)

4만원 is fair enough. Not sure how much they will charge for my C&J? 

 

For Lussoso, yes, they don't have much craftmanship. They couldn't offer hand-sewn button hole even you would like to pay extra. There are so many options like 1만원 for lapel stitching, 1만원 for functional button hole, 1만원 for selected lining...etc. I don't mind they offer half or fused canvassed for the overcoat. They are quite flexible as you can have unlimited fittings with no charge......worth to have a try.

The unlimited fittings are what sealed the deal for me. Tough to find here. They're also very gracious about it.

Yup. I have a few yards of Hartwist from Harrisons. Will go with them for a sportcoat if they show me a good end product for my cashmere overcoat.

Hello Seoul people. I'm studying at SNU for one year and thought I'd have suede jacket and a brown lamb leather jacket made. I'm looking to dish out $300-$500 for each jacket. 

 

I've understood that TOJ is based here in Seoul, and wondered where they stand compared to local tailors? Are there places out there with more jacket for the KRW?

I'm not really sure on the leather jackets. My friend had a lambskin jacket made a few years ago around the Ewha University area and it was around ~$450. I'm sure that the prices are higher now. As for jackets, you can search through this thread and check out some of the tailors in the Itaewon and Gangnam areas that are regularly mentioned (i.e. Hahns and Segi). For the price of a suede jacket, I think you will be paying a bit more than what you are expecting.

Anyone know is there any similar forum in Korean(naver.com) talking about the same topic, i.e. Tailor, fabric or even shoes whatever?

Hi. Sorry if this is the incorrect thread for this question.

Does anybody know if there are any good custom shoemakers in Seoul, South Korea?

Thank you.

I have no idea indeed. Instead, you may visit Unipair and they carry a lot of RTW brand shoes. They also have EG MTO AFAIK.

Seems it needs a login to access. I'm not able to manage the Korean to create an account.......shame......

I know Segi carry so many brands of fabric such as Zenga, LP, Scabal and Harrisons. Anyone know is there any wholesaler here in South Korea for these brands? I'm thinking of buying the fabric directly from wholesaler and spot a tailor for suit making.

How long did these processes take for you guys? I know asian tailors can work a bit faster comparatively. I'm going there for just less than a week, I'm guessing it'd be completely unreasonable to expect something to be done in that time period?

It's borderline impossible for them to do it in a week. You would have to pay them extra to make it 'quick', but would you really want to rush this type of process? Two weeks would be pushing the limit, IMO. Usually it take me about 3 weeks to a month (3-4 fittings). The other option is to have them go through one fitting (or possibly even two if you're lucky) and have them send the suit to you by mail. But you will still need it tailored/altered some more when it arrives to you.

It seems Laffiar make pretty nice looking pairs. They advertise Goodyear welt and Bolognese construction custom shoes. Their website is in both Korean and English.

Their blog is also good place to take a look at their works.
