Traveling Tailors

 

Traveling Tailors are an attempt to blend the best of local and distance tailoring. Commonly these tailors will operate out of areas which have a strong tailoring trade or low labour costs but spend much of their time traveling to major cities to meet with clients. On their visits they take measurements and showcase physical fabric samples, once the client places an order, the garment is manufactured elsewhere and delivered via courier or mail. This method has the advantage of allowing tailors to meet with their clients and make a professional assessment of the fit with the lower labour costs of distance tailoring. Often though, there will not be a store front so in the event further alterations are needed the garment must still be shipped away. Some examples of Hong Kong based Tailors who operate in the way include ANS Fashions and Raja Fashions.
