A FAMILY business run by brothers Bharath and Moolesh Jain saves you the hassle of stepping outside your door for bespoke formal wear. Indeed, 108 Bespoke, started with two sewing machines in their garage, has now moved to a much larger studio.
“I am an electronic engineer and worked at Intel for five years, before moving to the US for another five years. After which I moved back to India. My family has been in the fabric business for over 15 years and I decided to stick to what we already had a good understanding of,” Bharath informs us. Their orders come from two sources, Bharath explains, one from corporate employees/businessmen and the other, wedding parties.
For those looking for the perfect suit for their big day, they offer special consultations where the designer discusses the theme, colour, venue, number and type of guests going to be present, the bride’s outfit, etc before determining the fabric and fit. “Our grooms and groomsmen just love us. Most of them are clueless at first and then our experienced designers do their thing and they are left feeling confident of what they’ve chosen to wear on their big day,” he smiles.
Their men’s service covers blazers, shirts, trousers, scarves, golfing shorts and ethnic wear like sherwanis and bandhgalas. For women, their services are limited to formal western wear like skirts, dresses, blazers, trousers and shirts. Boasting a range of imported fabrics like Dormeuil, Lora Piana, Scabal, Huddersfield, Pal Zileri, Lanitex and Armani, they also offer a selection of Indian fabrics such as Aravind, Raymonds, Reid and Taylor and Siyaram to choose from.
Their team consists of three designers, each with their own master tailor. The designers arrive at your doorstep with their tailors, well-equipped with fabric swatches and their keen eye for style and also dole out styling tips based on your figure, weight, colour tone and type of job.
