Hello everyone! Today, I’m proud to announce a new initiative, called In Conversation With – a series whereby I’ll be sitting down to chat with the entrepreneurs behind local menswear brands. The idea actually came from a reader, who suggested that I do a podcast with brand owners that I’ve previously featured. I thought it would be a good idea to showcase the human element behind the brands, as well as their ethos, and thereafter decided that I’ll do a monthly Youtube series revolving around the concept. And thus, In Conversation With was born.
The first episode of In Conversation With is with Gary of Sors Studios, a fashion-forward tailor based in the heart of Arab Street. I previously reviewed my experience with Sors Studio here, and the fit and style of the resulting garments here. I also reviewed their suit jacket here.
In Conversation With – the Video
In the maiden episode of In Conversation With, I sit down with Gary to discuss topics such as why dressing well is important, how he first got into tailoring, his mission at Sors Studios, and more.
If you’re interested in menswear and fashion, do give the above video a watch! Upcoming instalments with other brand owners (watchmakers, shoemakers, perfumers, tailors, leathercrafters, etc) are already in the works. If you have any feedback, feel free to leave a comment on the Youtube video – that will go a long way to improving future videos. I’m excited about this series, and I hope the videos will be of interest to you guys.
More initiatives for Wah So Shiok are also planned for the second half of the year – stay tuned!
