Custom Tailor Opens in Tysons Corner

The Tailored Man combines high tech efficiency with old world personal service

TYSONS CORNER, Va., Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Tailored Man (www.tailoredman.com) is now in Tysons Corner, VA. The custom tailor, established in 1969 in Alexandria, VA, chose Tysons for its third store location because of the concentration of executives and professionals. And it delivers old world personal service combined with innovative proprietary software and a user-friendly website to meet and exceed the needs of these new customers.

"There are 283 companies within one mile of our Tysons Corner shop, which is also next to the Palms Restaurant and the Ritz-Carlton– another great draw for our clientele," said Jason Elias of the Tailored Man. "This is the perfect environment for us to launch our new Corporate Partners Program – which enables companies to offer our services with certain discounts and exclusive perks to their employees. We're finding great success with this program here, and look forward to this aspect of our business continuing to grow."

The Tailored Man has experienced 10% growth from the Tysons Corner shop alone since the store opened just six months ago, adding more than 120 new clients in less than 120 days. Professional men and women are drawn to the shop, enticed by The Tailored Man's integration of technology to keep things efficient and thorough, coupled with their dedication to 'old world' personal attention.

"The beauty of custom tailoring is that the suit is made specifically for you – for your shape, your style," explains Sunder Daswani. "You're not trying to fit into something that was made for many. This is created and made to fit only you. And it shows."

Have A Fit
By JACKIE SHER, Special to the Times Union
First published: Saturday, August 12, 2006
Don't get mad if you can't find clothes your size; Hit the Internet om Reardon has the opposite problem. Most clothing drowns his 5-foot-5inch frame. When Reardon, 26, was in collage, he was a runner and was similarly sized to most of his teammates. He fit in and didn't notice his height as much as he does now that he's entered the professional world as a teacher.
Although he has gained 15 pounds since collage, the East Greenbush man feels smaller than ever.
The average height o f a male, ages 20 to 74 is 5 feet 9 1/2 inches, and the average height of a female of the same age is 5 feet 4 inches, according to the 2002 U.S. Deportment of Health and Human Services statistics. Yet averages don't tell the story.
One of Reardon's largest problems is finding shirts that don't look baggy.
"I wear a 14 1/2-inch dress shirt," he says, referring to the men's collar size "It's almost impossible to find one in a color other than white."
Finding your fit
"Understand that good shopping is always contingent on doing a little homework," says Handschiegel. "Even average-size people have to try many brands to find what fits specifically.
TAILORED LOOKS:

Custom suits can cost $1,200 to $1,800, but they don't have to. Sunder Daswani travels the worlds fitting men for suits and sending the measurements to Hong Kong. The finished product arrives in about six weeks and can cost as little as $500. Daswani makes regular trips to New York City and southern New Jersey, but is willing to travel anywhere if he has enough customers.

Fashion standby is blazing new trails

Blazers were once a boring staple of man's dress wardrobe ..
"The advantage of the blaze is you can dress it up or you can down," said Sunder Daswani, president and founder of Elegant Rochees Hong Kong Tailors, a Virginia-based store that sells custom-tailored blazers around the nation.
"You can wear it with jeans, you can wear it with dress pants, you can wear it with a button-down shirt, with or without a tie," he said. "You can ever wear it with a bow tie."
........Daswani recommends men of average height and weight look for two-or-three button blazers. "Two is for people who are conservative and three for people who like the latest style," he said.
Tall and Lean
For most men of this body type, Daswani suggests a three-button, double-breasted style, which give extra bulk. "If he is a young man, tall, slim and very fashion-conscious, he should take a four-button single-breasted," he said.
Big and hefty
Stockier guys should stick to slimming single-breasted versions, Daswani said. He added that a person with a slight belly should opt for two buttons. "If he takes three buttons, the third button may not flat on the chest, "he said.

With more than four decades in business, The Tailored Man credits its custom software for coordinating everything from fitting to stitching

At 2 p.m. on a recent Friday, Sunder Daswani, founder of The Tailored Man    , sat in his Alexandria store talking shop — about his pioneering software, his 50 years in the custom-made suit business, his big-name clients (most of whom he doesn’t name) — when in walks a dark-suited gentleman with an earpiece.

“A head’s up,” says the U.S. Secret Service agent, “the senator will be here soon to pick up his suits.”

Roughly 30 minutes later, in walks Sen. Daniel Inouye of Hawaii, the Senate president pro tempore and third in line for president after the vice president and speaker of the House. He chats with Daswani, 70, and the in-store staff (all Daswani’s family) for a bit about the 86-year-old senator’s health (he’s fine), his future in the Senate (not going anywhere). Then Inouye tries on his suit jackets, which require minor additional alterations, and departs.

It’s not every day someone as instantly recognizable as Inouye walks into your store. However, for Daswani and The Tailored Man, a tiny store on Duke Street, political and sports celebrities are as everyday as it gets. Word of mouth and referrals drive power brokers here. Custom fitting in any size drives large men, like professional athletes, here. Heavy advertising and lower prices than, say, the tailors of Savile Row, lure the everyman.

The Tailored Man, which operates under corporate parent Rochees Inc., does not make custom suits and shirts, though it does do alterations inside the shop.

Store employees are fitters in a way, Daswani says, helping 10,000 customers design their ideal garb — the fabric, color, suit lining, matching tie, monogram, buttons, placement of the buttons, collar, pocket or no pocket, and so on. The order is then sent to Hong Kong, home to a free port and the largest variety of fabrics in the world, where the clothes are crafted.
