Very nice, Chris. Thanks for sharing!
Great interview! I've yet to comissioned anything from them - only met them and that experience alone was truly awesome. Humble gentlemen above all else.
Less now with the exchange rate. Though I think probably around that if you catch them on a trunk show rather than meet them locally.
So how much does it cost in Korea?
I visit every summer and might pick one up this year, if the price is right!
Not really sure. CMT a suit will probably end up being around 1.2k USD. But that's a guess at this point. Best way to find out is to email them.
Thanks for the info! I visit every summer for a couple weeks and was thinking about picking up some bespoke or MTM suits and shirts. Ill be sure to check out a few places this trip!
Looks like 10 days might be enough to commission a piece although it could be limited to only a single fitting...
I will be in Korea in October for 10 days and good folks at B&Tailor told me they can do a jacket & pants for me Just like hens said above, it may only be enough for single fitting (opposed to 2 fittings they recommend) but they said we can do two fittings and they can ship the final product to US as well
They recently had some amazing RTW safari jackets avail for sale for their Philippines Monogram shop trunk show...The jackets are now sold out but I am working out final details to get some for our San Diego / USA showroom in the near future
Let me know if you gents would like to pre-order!
Personally I'd prefer at least 2 fittings with the final suit to be posted out. Ideally I'd give them as much time as they need.
I desperately need a new suit though and I'm not that impressed with the mtm options in Aus, especially since I'm on the west coast. Finally back to full time work that requires a suit and tie at all times, after quite some time doing contract work that had a much more relaxed dress code. Now all my suits don't fit, with all my spare time I was in the gym everyday and now my shoulders and thighs are close to bursting the seams of some of my stuff.
Not sure I understand: are you saying they can make you a jacket and pants, but not a suit, in that timeframe?
Yes, I'm wondering the same thing. I'm not sure what the distinction is from a tailoring perspective.
He's ordering a jacket and pants, that are separates, meaning - not a suit.
That's what I thought; he didn't mean that they couldn't do a suit in that timeframe, correct?
They have done a suit in that timeframe. I think it was back a page
