    Hello. Can anyone recommend a tailor in Fukuoka that does shirts and trousers?

    While others may disagree, I think the custom MTM suiting/shirts/pants made by the select stores are excellent deals. (Beams' suiting are made exclusively by RING JACKET, for example). Try Strasburgo, United Arrows, Beams, Tomorrowland, Ships, Barneys New York. I wasn't disappointed when I saw their fabric selection.

    Azabu Tailor also has a store in Fukuoka.

    For bespoke shirts, try Yamagami Shirts. His atelier is located inside Strasburgo Fukuoka. He is featured on the latest MEN'S EX magazine.

    Sorry I'm only familiar with big-box stores, I don't really know any local tailors in Fukuoka.

    Thanks Nutcracker. I have been to the stores you mentioned. I guess I didn't speak/read enough Japanese to know that some of them offered MTM. I was in fact in Strasburgo on my last trip there. Will make sure to give them a visit again when I get back.

    You're very welcome!! :fonz:
    Yamagami Shirt looks quite promising! Priced right under ¥30K yen. I know he goes out for trunk shows a lot, so make sure to check with Strasburgo first!
