A Meeting with Germain the Tailor
Posted on June 04 2014
I was digging Shanghai but I wasn't just there to party, I was looking for a tailor that I'd heard about who had a studio deep in the French Concession. I had an appointment but no idea how to find it in the maze of the lane houses so I asked my mate Seb who knew him to help me find it... We still may have gotten a little lost ;)
Germain, a French tailor, has been living and working in Shanghai for the past 8 years. He learned his craft in Paris before arriving in Shanghai to set up shop where he had quickly built up a clientele from his skill, range of fabrics and of course, impeccable taste.
