Men’s tailoring in Dubai
Take a closer look at the high number of stylish tailors in Dubai 1 Comments
Happily, Dubai is teeming with relatively inexpensive, quality tailoring services – a gentleman can get a well fitted suit with a snappy cut in just a matter of days. However, those who are a slave to high-end designer labels, or simply have money to spend, needn’t have to trek all the way to Karama to get suited up. Dunhill (Burjuman; 04 351 5551), noteworthy for its good customer service and great buying, can tailor suits to request. Measurements are taken in store, and suits are sent to be tailored in Italy, with a turnaround of around six to eight weeks. Custom tailoring starts at Dhs8,000.
Harvey Nichols (Mall of the Emirates; 04 409 8888), meanwhile, offers full bespoke tailoring services courtesy of Milanese tailor Mr Sergio Messi, who flies into Dubai at the beginning of each month. Bookings can be made with Mr Messi through the personal shopping department, though prices vary according to the fabric and the fit. After taking your measurements, Mr Messi will return a month later for the first fitting, returning with the final product after another month. We assume it’ll be worth the wait.
Tom Ford (The Dubai Mall; 04 330 8300) has a ‘Made to Order’ and ‘Made to Measure’ service, where clients choose from different ‘base cuts’. The service affords a generous choice of fabric swatches and shirt swatches. You can also choose your own embroidered monograms, collar style and cuffs.
Ermenegildo Zegna (04 340 8811), also in The Dubai Mall, offers the trademark Su Misura service, whereby customers can choose a fabric and have their measurements taken. All cuts follow Zegna’s style – the Milano fit (soft shoulder or flat shoulder) or regular fit (round fitting). Suits made in Super 100 wool start at Dhs10,000, and are tailored in Italy. Turn around takes between four and five weeks.
