Hi all, I'm a 20 year old international college student currently majoring in Business Admin. I've given serious thoughts to opening a clothing store since my grandfather's a tailor and my family was in the fabric business for a long time. As of now I'm still pretty clueless about my plan, however. My hometown is Hanoi, Vietnam. The bespoke tradition began to deteriorate ever since I dont know but I went to several stores and they seem to be ignorant of my needs, I told a tailor to make a tapered shirt and he said it's for women, and I'd look "gay" in that kind of shirt. I asked them to show me their collar choices, all they could give me was the straight collar. They even claimed with great confidence that there's only 1 collar style !!! Anyway, I'd appreciate it a lot if you guys can help me on how to get in this business as well as maintain it. Sorry if I can't explain it very well, I think that the style here in Vietnam sucks, you go to most office here and they dress horribly, oversized suits, oversized shirts, bootcut dress pants (yes, boot cut dress pants!!!) with squared toe shoes are everywhere. My country needs a change, a great change, not a lot of people can see that, those who can don't have time or heart to clear up the minds of others. Vietnam's going to be in WTO soon, I don't want my people to be regarded as badly-dressed and unprofessional manner. So what do I need to make this change possible? I've gathered a team of people who are passionate about reviving and renewing the sense of style of people in my country to do a serious website for formal and streetwear clothing. My plan is to make Vietnamese people conscious about what they wear first, how it could effect their image and stuff, then I will open a store that caters to their new and improved knowledge of style. Is there anything else I can do? Any useful resource for me? Deepest thanks to everyone here, this forum's changed my life a great deal !!!
