When it comes to having more options in men’s tailoring, Sydney’s Zimma Tailors leads the pack. They’re one of the few suiting brands in Australia that offer bespoke, made-to-measure, and ready-to-wear garments, as well as an in-house tailoring service.Launched in 2011, Zimma Tailors is the creation of Roger Shamoun, who designs every pattern in-store. All garments are hand-made by tailors with a minimum of 30 years experience in their craft just above the George Street store in what Roger likes to call “The Workshop.” His motto? “Zero Stress.” When you’re making everything by hand, quality is the product of time and care. Some things can’t be rushed. Sydney.
There are seemingly limitless options in menswear today, thanks in no small part to fast fashion and e-commerce. Still, there’s nothing like a garment perfectly fitted to the individual’s body and reflective of their personal style, like a bespoke or tailored suit for special occasions, dinners, and meetings (or just for fun). Thankfully, a handful of tailors in Sydney still practice their time-honoured craft, while a number of businesses offer high-quality bespoke suits for the maximum in comfort and refinement for men of exacting standards.
