Tailor Me

The Tailor Me vision was inspired by three friends, George Diab, Rick Da Matta and Brad Marriott, who were totally frustrated by ill-fitting, off-the-rack suits that never deliver a personalised fit. Tailor Me views clients as friends who share the belief that while looking the part is important, being undeniably true to yourself is even more crucial. When you visit their studio in Parkhurst, you're served your choice of the best whiskey, wine or coffee, and are given dedicated attention and the opportunity to go through fabrics, designs, drapes and colours. After extensive measurements are taken, a pattern is created from scratch and cut out by hand. The entire suit is handcrafted from the ground up. Tailor Me uses only 100% wool fabrics, sourced from all over the world, to allow for the most luxurious, breathable suits possible. They offer entry-level, mid-range and high-end suits ranging between R7 100 and R40 000. Suits take between 6 and 7 weeks to be delivered, with as many fittings as necessary in between, to make sure you're 100% happy with the fit. Tailor Me showed its Autumn/Winter 2018 Collection at South African Fashion Week (SAFW) in October.

Generic is so last season – and there's just no such thing as one-size-fits-all any more! increasingly, men want to celebrate their individuality and show a unique style personality in what they wear every day.
