Brice - France
Posted: Jan 30 2017
Brice visited us while in Southeast Asia to visit his girlfriend who is working in Singapore. During his trip he decided to take a few days to explore Bangkok and since he had heard of us and our reputation, he decided to order a couple of suits. Between fittings, we sat down to have a chat with him.
Hi Brice, nice to meet you, where are you from?
I was born in Normandie, but Paris is where I live right now and where I have been studying finance for the past few years.
What has been your favourite thing to do since you got to Bangkok?
I really enjoy walking around and getting lost in the little alleys, it feels as if there is so much diversity and so much to discover behind every corner.
Yes, that is definitely the way to discover the city. And what about Paris, do you have any cool spots to recommend?
If you are looking for the typical parisian experience I would say go to the fifth arrondissement and check out Rue Mouffetard with all the food artisans, but also the Pantheon, a really impressive structure.
And what would you recommend that is a little off the beaten track?
Personally I love music, and there are some pretty big clubs for electronic music in Paris, like Rex and La Concrete. You can also check out Cité de la Mode, a really good rooftop bar.
We were impressed by your sense of style, can you tell us a bit about it?
This is the first time I got a bespoke suit, but I had some ideas and finally I could get all the things that I always wanted, and could never get from an off the rack suit. I was after a razor sharp look, and hopefully I will achieve just that. I am really into power suits, with big peak lapels, and I was delighted to be able to choose the size. I also asked for French cuffs for my shirt, and cuffs on pants, because I love to show off my socks.
You seem like you know what you want from a suit.
I had some ideas, but the staff here made it really easy. Danny is a real pro, and he could guide me through the selection process. It felt like a really personalised experience, aimed at fulfilling my ideas, while guided by his experience. Patrick took my measurements in seconds and fitted me with extreme precision. When I put on the waistcoat the first time it fitted like a glove. I am really impressed, and my plan is to get these suits done and then order more online.
You speak about suits with passion. Where does that passion come from?
I am going to start working in finance and investment banking, and the way I see it, suits are one of the tools of the trade. In that world appearance is so important, and a sharp brain paired with a sharp suit can really make the difference. Now, thanks to you I can look dapper at my new job.
Thank you Brice, and we look forward to your next visit!
Brice has picked a couple of top suits. This is where classic and versatile blends with modern and fun. Brice's first suit is a timeless navy but with an unexpected, super cool lining; business on the outside, party on the inside. The second suit is a Prince of Wales check, mid grey with a subtle blue check, which will look more pronounced when worn with a blue shirt. This is a classic pattern, but which is very much in fashion at the moment. Brice rocks both suits with slim peak lapels, for a 'modern gentleman' look. He also proves the usefulness of white and blue shirts - always looks great, with any suit or on their own. Click through to shop your own: Pure Wool Suits and Luxury Cotton Shirts
