My hubby fancies a white made to measure tuxedo. So... if he is brave enough to go for it, I thought I would assist. I appreciate he will look very...dashing, debonaire and suave....amongst other things...but if anyone has any experience of having a suit made here any details would be great.

I personally don't but I have a friend who regularly gets coats etc made by a tailor downtown. She is not in the country just now but I will ask her when she returns.. if you give me a reminder in a weeks time
Thanks maiden, will do. I have 9 weeks before he launches himself in John Travolta mode!!

It is on road 9, coming from costa coffee direction go on down past mc Donalds to the next main intersection. It is on the right hand side just before this junction. The shop is about 6foot square and the only sign it is a tailors is that there is a dummy in the window..

Bring a photograph of what you want unless your Arabic is good enough to explain. you can bring the material, or he will get it for you. He has samples and we just let him get it.

He is very fast just a week from ordering to collection with a fitting in-between. For a white tux jacket, black dress trousers, and the dress shirt 1000le. Probably could have bargained more but we thought it was worth it and it fits perfectly.

Thanks, Maireadhoey,

That would be Sayeed the Tailor - a very skilful man with a needle and thread. He altered an overcoat for me last winter - did a fantastic job letting it out and only charged me 30LE. I've only had him do alterations up to now, but will definitely be ordering a made-to-measure suit next!
