When my uncle, Cliff Vaswani, founded Hong Kong Tailors he had one goal, to ensure his clients look their best. Now, for nearly 5 decades, HKT Custom Clothiers has been providing one-on-one bespoke tailoring and style consultation for the Atlanta area.
Coming from the Mediterranean island of Malta,I was exposed to a wide range of British and Italian fashion.
However, custom, made-to-measure clothing was limited on the island. For myself, and many other men, this was inconvenient. It’s hard to look your best and feel confident when off the rack options simply do not fit well.
I began to learn the bespoke tailoring trade in 2005 along side my uncle and one of his master tailor, Marcel Labonne. Growing up in the textile industry I already had a vast knowledge of garment materials and men's fashion. I continued to learn more of the bespoke process and my uncle’s philosophies while handling many of the creative and design aspects of the business.
I have the privilege of working with a team of highly experienced tailors and staff who dedicate all their hard work to making sure our clients are satisfied. When I am consulting with a client, it is more than just choosing fabric and style, it’s about making them a fitted suit they feel confident wearing so they can look and feel their best.
