Michael - USA
Posted: Nov 16 2016
Michael came to see us about a suit, as most people do. In his words, this was “the first suit in my adult life”, and for it he chose a brilliant combination of colors and textures. He needed his suit to attend his friend's’ wedding in San Francisco, and we are sure that he will stand out in the best way possible.
Hi Michael. Where are you from?
I am originally from the United States, and even if I was not born there I call Las Vegas home, because that is where I have been living before coming to Southeast Asia.
Las Vegas sounds hectic, how is the city?
I love it. It is a fantastic place and there is more to it than just the party. Vegas is close to everything that matters, in four hours you can be on the Pacific coast, if you are into outdoors those are close too, and there are also a few snowboarding spots not too far. Every day you can find a different concert, with big names always playing, but you can also attend different events, including boxing and UFC.
You mentioned the UFC, are you into fighting yourself?
Yes. Here in Bangkok I train Muay Thai in a really cool place called Jitti Gym in Ratchada, and I was training before coming over here as well.
Nice. So how long have you been in Bangkok for?
I got here eight months ago, but for the past eight weeks I have been in the city only one weekend, I was busy travelling Southeast Asia. Before moving to Bangkok I lived in Singapore for a couple of years.
So what is your favourite thing about the city, other than coming to see us at Tailor On Ten?
Here in Bangkok I love the big city experience. There is so much to explore compared to Singapore. I also love that on my salary I can afford great accomodation. If I go to work, come back home and look at the view from my condo’s windows, it is already a good day.
What is the place you would recommend in Thailand other than Bangkok?
It would have to be the Khao Sok national park, which is located north of Phuket. I have never seen such dramatic scenery in my whole life.
Michael, thank you for coming to Tailor on Ten, we are confident that your new suit will help you impress at the wedding. Come and see us again soon!
Michael is wearing a superb combo of tweed jacket in a fantastic soft pure wool, contrasted by a subtly patterned waistcoat from Giovanni Tonella, while a brown and blue shirt from our Luxury Cotton range brings all the colors together. The brown horn buttons carry over from jacket to waistcoat, further tying the look together. The play with color and texture makes this a perfect semi-formal look, great for weddings!
