Hi all, would anyone have experience with WJ&Co? I'm looking for office day wear and also a couple pair of decent shoes and it seems like they can do both. My body shape quite stocky, with a short torso and relatively wide shoulders which a lot of off the shelf shirts doesn't fit, and I'm of medium height, maybe even a tad short, which led me to want to try the tailor route. Thanks in advance!

if bangkok I would recommend going to amari tailor and look for sam as his service quite fast for a made to measure service

nice chap.. me and my brother have done quite a few suits and extra work shirts from him over the past few years

one thing to note is he always does the looser fit type by default.. must specify skinny or slim if you prefer to be skin hugging or very fit style

I've got experience with their Made-To-Measure stuff, by the Australian brand, which I can't say turned out great (for my non-Asian frame). I have lots of experience with the shoe makers they sell, though not with any pair purchased directly from them. Please free to send me any questions, in case I can help. For what it's worth, I also have a sleeve length that tends not to work off the rack.

Thanks old red eyes. Am trying to make time to read through the thread first. Will ping you with questions later specifically with your experience with WJ and Co. Thanks for offering your advice!

I tried chinos once and it was kind of a disaster. For a fairly casual item like that, I think you'd have to have a rare need in order for a custom pair to make much sense. (Or just want something super high end.) Anything below the thigh should be very easy for an alterations shop to handle. The length is easy, of course, but so is the width (of the knee/calf and leg opening). I'm guessing that a hem and taper could fix you up just fine, and it wouldn't cost very much at all.

If you have some other problem you are trying to get around, maybe post some pics so we can give advice?

Do you mean just the fabric itself, by the yard? Or tailors in KL that are working with it.

Anyone has any experience with Galaxy Tailor in KL, or Cayman Tailor in Subang? Quality-wise and price-wise.

They seem to be getting a lot of reviews at Google Maps, but can't seem to find any reviews here. hmm.gif

Im also wondering about the same thing. I am now between Cayman Tailor and Tee Tailor in amcorp. Don't know which one to go for. Was hoping someone would have replied to your query by now.

Hello, did you managed to do your suit in the end? If yes, which tailor did you go to?
