Pop-up Fashion For Men

Well dressed gents across the city should know there’s a Hong Kong–based tailoring company that makes regular visits to Calgary; Bespoke Tailor’s.

You are welcomed into a Hotel suite and set before you are more colours and patterns than you can imagine.

Most cost-minded men buy their threads off the rack, but every truly well dressed gent should have at least one custom-made suit in his wardrobe and since a trip to a fashion capital like London or New York can be pricey for just a jacket and pants, guys might want to know that there’s a tailoring company that satisfies fashion needs by making regular visits to Calgary.

Fabric in many colours and patterns

William Bal and Dennis Chauhan of BMV Bespoke Tailors spend six months a year on the road, setting up shop in hotel suites around England, Australia, the United States, and Canada (it’s basically a bespoke-suit pop-up).

Here in Calgary, where they come roughly every three months, Chauhan, Bal, and their associates hop between various hotels over the course of one jam-packed week.

I even learned something new; there are certain collar types designed for different tie knots.

This is no mere fitting: each half-hour appointment is more of a style-advisory session designed to determine the desired cut, based on where customers would like the suit to fall on their shoulders, hips, and shoes. As for myself; during my appointment I learned that a certain collar style is better suited for certain tie knot. I love a double Windsor so I was told a collar with a wider spread would suit me and my knot. A visit with Chauhan and Bal is a more personal experience. The one-on-one appointment gives the tailors the chance to explain the strict rules of properly fitting suits.

BMV has been making the trip to Calgary for serval years. Based on word-of-mouth recommendations from their exceedingly loyal customer base, who appreciate a suit that is custom, inexpensive, and doesn’t require actual shopping. It’s what keeps the Bespoke tailors circling the globe, making each city look a little sharper every time they return.
