A few days ago, we posted an article on our blog about the January 2019, fitting of preeminent actor and martial artist, Michael Jai White, in our Midtown Manhattan (New York City) showroom. As we described in the previous post, Victor Mohan, Mohan’s Custom Tailors ‘ Vice-President, traveled to Los Angeles at the end of October, 2018, for an initial bespoke consultation with Mr. White and his wife, actress Gillian Iliana White, to handcraft his custom suits and custom shirts. Victor was joined on the visit by Mohan’s Master Tailor, Ken Wong.

Mohan’s Custom Method starts with a conversation wherein we fully understand our clients’ needs, followed by thorough review of an extensive selection of luxurious fabrics, styles, cuts and custom features and collaboration with our clients to determine the ideal look. We had a wonderful time making these choices with Mr. and Mrs. White, who sought to blend classic and ultra-modern elements and fits and to most aptly accommodate Mr. White’s athletic frame. With Master Tailor, Ken Wong, Victor Mohan — who also has an athletic build and, therefore, very personally understands the specific needs of clients like Mr. White in terms of look, feel and movement of suits, shirts, slacks, and other men’s clothing — oversaw the entire suiting process. Following this part of the process, Master Tailor Ken Wong followed our unique bespoke process, taking 35 specific measurements to create the state-of-the-art custom shell for Mr. White’s suits and shirts, which would ensure that the final product would be as close to perfection as possible.
At the end of the consultation, we were collectively excited about seeing the final results. Mr. White’s three-piece custom suits (with vests, special linings and more) and custom shirts can be seen in our February 5, 2019 post.
