The world of suiting might seem like a tangled mess of fabric, thread, and snobbery, but though its origins are decidedly Anglo-Saxon, suits are worn almost everywhere in the world by people of all shapes and sizes, backgrounds, ethnicities, and ages. While a lot of the work has been delegated to machinery and task-specific workflows now, the art of making a bespoke suit is still practised by Thumb Thimble here in Hong Kong and trust us, you can tell the difference between an impeccably tailored and handmade suit.
Did you know, for example, that it takes only 48 hours to craft a bespoke suit? Or that a skilled craftsman will always have some newspaper on hand to prevent slippage when he is using a sewing machine? And while machine-made suits have the might of technological advancements behind them, the traditional combination of cotton basting threads, neat prick stitches, and metal thimbles on your thumb and middle finger remains a formidable tool in the hands of a capable professional tailor or seamstress.
To spread the joy of a custom tailoring experience, we are delighted to partner with Thumb Thimble to give away a bespoke, tailored suit to one lucky Localiiz reader and 20 percent discount gift vouchers for four lucky runner-ups! All you have to do to stand a chance to win is enter our competition below by answering a few simple questions and share the competition with your friends and on social media to gain additional entries. The competition ends on Sunday, 23 August 2020. The winner will be contacted via email by Monday, 24 August 2020. Terms and conditions apply.
This competition is brought to you by Localiiz in partnership with Thumb Thimble.
