Frank - Canada

Posted: Jan 05 2017

Frank is on his second Tailor On Ten raid. The first time he had a blue hopsack blazer made, while this time he came in for two suits, one in navy blue and the other one in charcoal. We exchanged a few words with Frank while he was waiting to be picked up by his car.

Where are you from and how long have you been in Bangkok?
I am originally from Vancouver, Canada, and I have been based in Bangkok for over two years, working in finance, but I am always traveling. I would say that I am abroad 70% of the time.

Do you travel for work or for leisure?
I travel for work. I am in charge for investor relations for an international company and I deal mostly with Asia, even if often I have to travel to North America as well, mostly to Los Angeles.

You seem well traveled. Of all the places you have been to what has been your favorite destination?
Machupicchu in Peru is definitely the most unforgettable places I have been, but the Galapagos were incredible too.

Other than traveling what do you do with your spare time?
I like playing tennis and hiking. The last big hike I have been  on was in Nepal. I trekked the Annapurna circuit and I loved it. I was in Nepal for around six weeks, and it was the trip of a lifetime.

Other than Tailor On Ten, what influenced your decision of basing yourself in Bangkok?
Here I love the food, and how different this city is compared to where I am from. I like my lifestyle here, and it is a brilliant hub for conducting business in Asia.

Let’s talk suits. What did you get?
Last time I had a hopsack blazer made, and I am really happy with it. This time around I decided to have two business suits made, one in navy blue and one in charcoal. I need the suits to look sharp when I work, to make a good impression...

...my car is here, you have right to one more question.

Don’t worry Frank, it was a pleasure to meet and we hope to see you again soon!

In the first photo Frank is wearing an off-navy suit, matched just so, with a classic but playful gingham check shirt. The second suit is a charcoal sharkskin in Super 120s wool from Trabaldo Togna. This is one of our favorite fabrics, thanks to the the natural stretch the historied mill has managed to weave into the fabric, making it exceptionally comfortable, especially in areas of stress, such as around the trouser seat.
