Ravis Custom Tailors Offers Handmade, Shatnez-Free Custom Suits at Affordable Prices

Everyone has heard that “clothes make the man.” But what about when clothes are actually “made for the man (or woman)?” Ravis Custom Tailors has been doing just that for over three generations in Thailand. With all these years of experience, they bring a high level of knowledge and experience to the business, while still maintaining the integrity that has served customers well for so long.

Because Ravis Tailors owns their own factories, they have the unique ability to ensure shatnez compliance, checking the garments throughout the process, and catering to their large group of orthodox Jewish customers and ensuring the suits meet with halacha.

The custom suit business caters to the workplace wardrobe, and their clientele ranges from diplomats, teachers and executive businessmen, to students, everyday suit wearers and other customers from various walks of life. Suits start at under $500, which is significantly less than other options for a custom suit.

But don’t think it’s only for the men: “Women make up 40-50 percent of our clients,” explained Richard Dawson, sales director responsible for U.S. and Canada. Often they will get a jacket that coordinates with a skirt and pants, so for just a little bit more money, they now have two different outfits. They will also tailor a suit to any religious requests the customer may have.

“The benefit a custom suit provides goes beyond just having specific measurements,” Dawson explained. “Even before measurements are taken, we work with the client to find the style suit that best fits their look, style and body type — where certain proportions of a typical suit may have to be changed, special pockets and special cuts.” Dawson asserted that the tailor will do whatever the customer requests to fit their needs, “because that is what customization is all about.” In the past, customers requiring adjustments� due to physical handicaps have also come to them and found a successful interaction that met their needs.

Ravis Tailors makes sure all the material and work is of the highest quality. The material, lining and nap are carefully selected to ensure color match. In addition, the stitching process is a more intricate and time consuming method, but it lends more consistency and accuracy, ensuring no puckering of material. They also leave generous hems and cuffs on their suits.

For anyone considering a custom-tailored suit, the process is straightforward. Right now, Ravis Custom Tailors is coming to the east coast and will be in midtown NYC on December 1 and 2. Go to https://www.ravistailor.com/Travelling_Tailor.php�for a list of their nearby road show locations and to make an appointment online with their master tailor. At the visit, the client and the tailor meet and discuss the customer’s needs, such as when the garments will be worn, the purpose of the garments and the professional background the wearer is from in order to suggest various fabrics. Once fabrics are selected, the tailor assesses the body type of the client and takes between 50 to 80 measurements in order to ensure complete customization of the selected garment. The garments are made by hand — cut from the bolt, chalked on the cutting table and then cloth-cut and sewn with minimal computerization in the production process. Four weeks later the customer receives a suit handmade, in their perfect color and a perfect fit.

Ravis Custom Tailors does not just provide a beautiful garment, they are committed to upholding a safe and ethical work environment. They comply with the International Standards on forced labor, minimum age, fair pay and child labor. Ravis Tailors is also part of many active groups in Thailand, America and across the world, including the Lion’s Club of Bangkok, and the Association of Sewing and Design Professionals of America. With their eye on the environment, they look to find sustainable methods of production and minimize unnecessary consumption of natural resources, as well as utilize recycling opportunities whenever possible.

Make sure to catch Ravis Custom Tailors when they visit from Thailand this November through December across the United States and Canada. Let them help you look as put together as possible, with the style that works best. Visit www.ravistailor.com�for more information.�
