Having a handmade suit in the Far East is one of those ‘bucket list’ items. This tailor was next to the second hotel, U Chiang Mai, we stayed at in (unsurprisingly) Chiang Mai. I don’t have a dinner jacket so that was a natural choice, the price was good considering it was made to measure, but the finished article isn’t Gieves & Hawkes. But then it cost the same as the G&H pleated shirt I’ll wear it with. The whole process was fun and from ordering to measuring up and delivery was around 40 hours.
We also had a bit of fun, with me posing as a dummy in the shop window.
