It’s wedding time! What to expect at your first appointment.

Germain Tailors has proudly dressed hundreds of grooms for their most important day in our shops and trunkshows in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Paris.

When a gentleman comes to us for his wedding outfit, and sometimes for his groomsmen too, we usually begin with the following questions:

- When is the wedding ? Firstly, we need to make sure there is enough time. You should plan for at least one month in advance for a wedding suit to allow enough time for extra fittings for this one-in-a-lifetime occasion. Secondly, please keep in mind fabrics and the way dress won’t be the same for a summer as opposed to a winter wedding.

- Where will the wedding be? We generally consider three types of weddings: a.) city wedding b.) country wedding or c.) beach wedding

- What is the color theme of the wedding if there is one? Knowing this can help influence the choice of materials and accessories to coordinate with the color of the bridal gown or the bride’s flowers for example, to create a cohesive look.

- What time is the wedding? Will it be during the day or at night or throughout both?

- Would you like your wedding suit to be wearable again in the future for business or other events?

When we gather this information, we can better orientate and suggest options that are matching with the event and your personality. You most likely will not dress the same for a cocktail in the day on a beach in Bali compared to an evening ceremony in a hotel in Manhattan.

It is also recommended to gather some ideas before a visit and to think about what kind of suit you might be looking for. We have prepared a few Pinterest boards to help with ideas as well : https://www.pinterest.com/germaintailor/

婚礼!第一次踏进Germain Tailors时,什么是值得期待的呢?

在香港、上海和巴黎均设有门店,已经为数百名新郎在他们最重要的日子里装扮一新,为此我们感到骄傲。

当某位先生来找我们定做结婚礼服时,时常有伴郎随同,也会要一起定做礼服,那么我们需要知道这几个问题的答案。

-        婚期是何时?

-       首先好的礼服需要足够的时间打磨,需要至少一个月的时间来准备一套“一生只此一次”的礼服,这必须经历几次的试穿和版型师的调整。

-       其次,冬季和夏季 所配的婚礼礼服也不会相同。  

-       婚礼在哪里举行?

-       我们通常考虑适合三种婚礼类型的礼服:A/城市婚礼,B/乡村婚礼,C/海滩婚礼。

-       婚礼的主色调是什么?

-       了解婚礼主色调有助于搭配相应的配饰 ,比如礼服颜色、新娘捧花...等,使其在婚礼的照片和视频上看起来整体更流畅鲜明。

-       婚礼什么时候举行,是在白天还是晚上,或者两者横跨两个时间段?

-       你会另外想要一套将来可用于商务或其他场合中穿着的西装吗?

一旦我们知道这些,我们就更有可能 敲定好既符合您的个性又融入现场 的礼服方案,您在巴厘岛海滩上的鸡尾酒会穿的和在马纳坦的一家酒店举行的晚间典礼穿的必然是要截然不同风格。

在第一次访问之前,我们还建议我们的客户访问我们的Pinterest Boards,这样他们会对自己想要的有更清晰的想法。

Liberty Fabric - Germain Tailors - Shanghai - Hong Kong

Liberty’s floral designs have defied the whims of the fashion industry, and have stayed on trend for decades

germain-bespoke-tailors-liberty-prints.jpg

Perfectly on time for your summer/holiday shirts. We have now in stock in Shanghai dozen of choices of the legendary fabric from London.

germain-tailors-liberty-fabric.jpg

Liberty was founded 140 years ago, by Arthur Liberty, selling exotic silks imported from China and Japan, and cottons and fine wools from India.

His stock proved a hit with the artistic set, and early customers included Oscar Wilde, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Ellen Terry, James McNeill Whistler and Frederick Leighton.

His window displays of “Liberty art colours”, a rainbow of woven and printed fabrics in colourfast dyes, became a tourist attraction.

Paris Jacket - Germain Tailors - Shanghai - Hong Kong

Our signature Paris jacket is a true smart-casual blazer.

It is your best everyday partner, it will do the job week days and week-ends, in the city or in the country.

It is very confortable to wear due to the totally deconstructed workmanship, without any canvas or pading.

A soft-tailoring must, with a low shoulder and high armhole for the gentlmen on the move.

In the winter it is suggested in flannel of wool or heavy cottons such as corduroy and thick twills.

In the summer, it will work well with linen twill, cotton canvas and jerseys.

The blazer has four buttons, for a better versatility, button two at a meeting, three when walking in the windy streets, and four on your scooter!

Gurkha Trousers - Germain Tailors - Shanghai - Hong Kong

Designed to be practical, the Gurkha trousers and shorts take their origin from Nepal, more precisely : the Kingdom of Gorkha.

Like many other famous designs in the history of tailoring, Gurkha trousers were designed for military purposes. Rooted in British military tradition but modified specifically for use by the Nepalese Gurkhas elite troops after the Anglo-Nepalese war.

The Gurkha trousers and shorts signature is a double-pleated front and high, cummerbund-style waistband with buckle fastenings.

Casual Tailored Shirts - Hong Kong - Shanghai

Our spring-summer 2017 collection has no ties, and no formal shirts. We introduce three new tailored casual shirts to our catalog:

- One-piece Collar

- Camp Collar

- Reversed Collar

Prefered with pure linen or linen blend fabrics, those new designs are available made-to-measure at our Shanghai and Hong Kong shops, or during our trunk shows in Paris. Here are some descriptions.

The "one-piece-collar" shirt is the perfect bridge between dressed shirts and casual shirts. The collar and the collar-stand are made of a one-piece panel, which results to a perfect roll, and a softer look. It is a subtle, delicate touch of cool, and it can be worn with or without a tie.

Germain-Tailors-Shek-O-web-2823.jpg

 

A camp shirt or lounge shirt is a loose, straight-cut, short-sleeved shirt or blouse with a simple placket front opening and a "camp collar" - a one-piece collar (no collar band) that can be worn open and spread or closed at the neck with a button and loop. It usually has a straight hemmed bottom falling at hip level, not intended to be tucked into trousers. It is often the base for fancier fabrics such as bowling shirts, aloha shirts, or various other Hawaiian/tropically inspired weaves and patterns.

This collar is perfect for those who want to wear a suit, without tie. Beach wedding, garden party, you name it.

Handmade Tie

Just like our suits, our ties and pocket-squares are handmade with the upmost attention to detail. Each bespoke tie has a thicker feel and an unparalleled drape due to a single piece of fabric that is expertly folded 7 times. With more than 700 exclusive fabrics to choose from and options to customize the width and length as well as embroidery, you are sure to walk away with a truly unique and original piece.

正如我们对西装定制的要求,我们对领带和方巾的制作也追求品细节每一款定制款领带都由同一布料折叠七次后并手工制作完成,这赋予了它独特的折痕与厚的触感们拥有超700款的独家面料可供选择,您可以任意决定想要定制的领带长度、度和案. Germain Tailors 品牌将您提供一款独一无二的属原创单.
