Is an overseas tailor worth it?
Posted: Sep 21, 2020
For years, men in the US and European countries have been looking to the east for getting their custom bespoke suits at affordable prices. There are numerous tailoring shops in Hong Kong and Bangkok that are well-known for their bespoke tailoring. The tailor masters in Bangkok create a suit from scratch as per your measurement and preferred style.
But all overseas tailoring shops may just not be reliable. If you are planning to visit Bangkok and also want your suit to be tailored there, plan meticulously. Don’t just rely on the suggestions of the hotel staff. Rather, it’s important to do your own research, speak to the locals and find out the best tailoring shop for your custom suit. So, what are the things that you should focus on while choosing a foreign tailor?
Trust: Every tailor in Bangkok claims to be a bespoke tailoring shop. Instead of relying on their words, find out about them. Go online and search for reviews. You may also talk to others in the Bangkok streets. Probably, this research work will allow you to shortlist a few names.
Communication: If a tailor shop is ready to meet your requirements, it will never hesitate to establish a friendly relationship with you and answer your queries openly. The tailor master will explain the tailoring process and will also include you in the designing process, if you are interested. A reliable tailor shop will give you a walk-through of the shop, where you can check the latest machines and tools used for producing your bespoke suit.
Look for Samples: A specialist tailoring shop must have a number of samples that can showcase their tailoring expertise. Ask for samples before awarding your tailoring contract to them. Check the different types of suit styles and it will allow you to judge their efficiency.
Go Slow: When you are in a foreign country, you want things to get done as quickly as possible. But bespoke tailoring often requires time and a lot of efforts. It’s a step by step process that may require not less than a couple of weeks to finish your custom suit. Please don’t pressurize your tailor to make haste. Let it get crafted piece by piece and with patience. Rather choose a tailoring shop that can ship your tailored suit to your address in your home country.
