Taipei- Quality tailored suits

Discussions about how to find those things that are not immediately obvious

Moderator: Charlie Phillips

Forum rules
1) Please search :pray: before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.

2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one. :pray:

3) Please post separately :pray: for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.

Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator asking for help. Happy posting!!! :rainbow:

Looking for a suit store in Taipei with English service and quality wool/tailoring.
Any recommendations or suggestions?
Appreciate it

There are some quality places, but not with English service. The best tailors here usually apprenticed in HK or came over here from HK. You might find tailors with English service taking a hour and a half trip there, but it takes like at least a month for it to be made due to the high demand of quality tailors there.

I've seen some places that are marketed towards the younger working class, but I doubt their fabric is of the high quality and their tailors the best. I only get high quality suits no less than 30,000 to 40,000ntd.

As it happens I picked up a suit and some shirts from the tailor in the Sheraton last week. He's called Johnny tailor and speaks English and chatty. Price very much dependant on what you're after, but he has a good selection. I've no idea how familiar you are with purchasing tailored clothes, but I'd suggest you go in with a firm idea of what you're after.
Anyway, I'm happy with the results, very good fit.
