4 thoughts on “What I am wearing today (8 May 2016)

  1. Sir:

    It’s great to see such detail and dedication to style! I can’t believe I haven’t seen this blog till now. I stumbled across your blog from a Google search of best tailors in Bangladesh. My parents are going to be going to BD next week and will be staying at the Pan Pacific. I want to get some suits tailored for myself, possibly keeping the final stitching open for correction here in the states once they come back. I’d appreciate it if you can point me in the right direction as to who and where you go for all your suits and tailoring needs. I especially love the seersucker ones, the charcoal 2-button notch lapel with a ticket pocket and the nautical Blazers. Please let me know where I can send my parents to purchase the fabric and which tailor to go. Any help is much appreciated!
    Thanks,

    Richard

    1. Dear Richard:
      Thank you for your compliments. What I do not advertise in my kingofdhaka.com blog is that all the suits are made by Dapper Bespoke, owned by me. All the button-holes are sewn by hand and we use Corozo buttons as standard. The shop is located at the lobby of Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel, Dhaka.
      All the suits we make are full-canvas silk-lined bespoke suits with detailed hand stitching. Each suit needs a minimum of three fittings (sometimes more).
      However, making a suit only from measurements is a challenge because we can’t fine-tune the fitting through multiple trials. Therefore, top quality in terms of fitting cannot be ensured. We can certainly keep the sleeves and trousers’ legs open so that they can be adjusted by another tailor at your location. However, all our suits have hand-made working sleeve buttons. Now if we do that, it will not be possible to adjust the sleeve lengths because of the working sleeve button holes. To meet your requirement we will have to keep the sleeve buttonholes closed and the suits will not have working sleeve button holes, a key feature of bespoke suits.
      To ensure proper fit, we could also make one cheap suit with your measurements and Fedex to you for trial. After receiving your comments with photographs on fittings, we could make the rest of the suits. This might work. If you want to take this option, send us your measurements with your photographs from various angles. We will make a cheap suit and send it to you for fittings. The initial suit will cost you about US$ 100 and Fedex charges would be about another US$ 100 (approximately). We will need seven after receiving your measurements and it may take another five days for the suit to reach you by DHL/Fedex. Say, you need another 3-4 days to get back to us with the results and then we proceed to make your suits and blazers. It will take about 15 days. When they are completed we again fedex you the finished products (or you find somebody visiting from Bangladesh to carry the garments). I think this is the only method which will work satisfactorily. Alternatively, you wait until your next visit to Bangladesh.
      We carry many different types of fabric including seersucker, cotton, linen, wool, etc., for both shirts and suits.

      Cheers,

      Shahzaman
