Channeling: Men.Style.com


As winter weather rolls along, I’ve been finding myself standing uninspired in front of my closet more often than not. However, after finally digging into my massive pile of unread magazines, I’ve found some encouragement to rethink how I put my outfits together. And surprisingly, scruffy faced chiseled man-of-men grace the covers, and articles about muscle cars, scotch and video games fill the pages. There’s something so refreshing about clean, no-fuss separates and the low maintenance pairing of corporate wear with sportswear, that, when translated to women’s wear, makes old things new again. For example, I have never ever worn my Thomas Pink shirt buttoned al the way up for fear of looking like a Jil Sander mannequin. But today, I paired it with a crew neck sweater (ALWAYS crew necks if you’re going for menswear—only hipsters wear V necks), a salmon windbreaker and dark skinnies and it somehow worked. But remember, pair your shit with feminine accessories like uberfemme shoes and costume jewelry to avoid the Sir/Madam question.

Have you ever realized that when you buy readymade suits you get a choice of only a few colors & styles, also finding the perfect fit are quite difficult? Wouldn’t it be better to choose from over 2000 different British & Italian fabrics and get a tailor made suit at a similar price that you pay for readymade suits?

We are a company based in Hong Kong and have been providing custom made suits & shirts since 1997. With representatives in major cities around the globe we can arrange to show you the fabric samples and take your measurements, or you can also place your orders online with the help of our measuring guide. There are over 2000 fabrics to choose from along with all the latest styles.

All our suits and shirts are produced by highly skilled Shanghainese tailors in Hong Kong and delivered in about 4 weeks, express delivery can be made in 2 weeks at a minor extra cost. In case you are not able to find what you are looking for then please let us know your requirement may it be in words or by a photograph and we could arrange it for you.

We also have an outlet at the Hotel Intercontinental Budapest where you are most welcome to visit us. Though we are not located in streets like Savile Row (London), we have still been able to offer made to measure suits to many VIP’s from around the world.
