Default Tailors

Afternoon,

Tailor needed. Want to get some new suits made. My boss had two made for about 2500 and they're surprisingly nice for that money. Would like to spend the same sort of cash, he got them done somewhere in Satwa.

I'd ask him where but we don't see eye to eye at the moment and the less contact the better. So childishness aside, anyone got any good recommendations for that sort of price?

Cheers

Suited Scamp.

Do they sell golf polo shirts? If so, you'll need to come with me.

Don't be uptight mate - sports casual is more befitting the professional man of 2011. A Diadora suit with a Lonsdale T-Shirt

Yes - they are OK. Not as good as Kachins though, but cheaper. I've used them twice (using cobone vouchers) to make copies of shirts I had made at Kachins. Not done a suit there.

Nothing wrong with the tailoring - just the choice of materials was quite a good and the buttons feel a bit cheaper. Not that the buttons are of great importance to me in the grand scheme of things.

OK will check out Kachins and Viva,s ee who can do best deal for best quality for two suits.

Fancy golf again soon?

Ethos83 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Re: Tailors

A really good tailor is Whistle & Flute in Satwa. He's buried in an arcade on Al hudeiba Street between Al Wasl and the Satwa high street (roughly behind Iranian Hospital).

Nice guy. Excellent tailoring. Feels like an old fashioned gentleman's tailor from 19th century London. But not the cheapest although you do get what you pay for.

You obviously don't suffer from koumpounophobia then. That's gotta be weird. (Not you not suffering from it, the fact that some people do.)

Now that is a weird link. What about the Toggles you used to get on coats as a kid??

Scamp - yes, I'm willing to be thrashed at golf again - I think I've played once since we last met...
