Markets continuously change, but the old maxim remains the same... "Clothes make the man.” In the case of Los Angeles tailor Michael Sahi; he’s the man who makes the clothes.

I get calls all the time from prospective clients telling me they approached someone wearing one of my suits to ask who made it.”

Markets continuously change, but the old maxim remains the same... "Clothes make the man.” In the case of Los Angeles tailor Michael Sahi; he’s the man who makes the clothes.

As owner and proprietor of Michael's Custom Clothes in Sherman Oaks, Sahi has spent the balance of the past twenty years traveling the country, tending to his nation-wide client base. As a testament to the loyalty of the tailor / client relationship, many have been with him since the beginning. The rest were the result of the whispered word of mouth campaign that is in motion anytime someone is wearing one of his distinctive, hand-made suits. According to Mr. Sahi, “I get calls all the time from prospective clients telling me they approached someone wearing one of my suits to ask who made it.”

When acquiring new clients, Sahi often has to educate and inform them as to the approach and benefits of custom made clothing. “It isn’t anything like buying a suit off the rack. It’s a more sophisticated product for a more sophisticated consumer.”

In the world we live in, people tend to look for designer labels as a harbinger of quality. “The philosophy is entirely different. When you buy a suit off the rack, the designer dictates the style. I have always believed the man wearing the suit should define his own style, either by his own desires or in collaboration with his tailor who will regard not only that client's physique, but also the lifestyle and needs that are unique to him.”

Michael Sahi establishes a breezy rapport with the client, assessing what exactly is needed to upgrade their wardrobe, where the suits will be worn, how often, etc. Dozens of measurements are taken. Sahi keeps you engaged and your stats are logged before you even realize it.

The fabric selected influences the price of the suit. There are hundreds of different fabrics on hand for you to choose from in each pricing strata. Suits start at $495.00 and go up from there. Shirts start at $75.00. “Even my entry level suits and shirts are entirely hand made. There are no cut corners and there is no better deal.”

Michael's Custom Clothes offers several specially priced packages that are available year round. These feature various combinations and varieties of suits, shirts, slacks, vests, and women's skirts. The most popular package is the "Career Essentials" suite, which includes 3 suits, 3 shirts, and 3 silk ties for $1,399.00.*

After measurements, fabrics, and design details are decided, your custom made order is complete within four to six weeks. "By the time a consumer buys a suit from a department store and has some tailoring done so it will actually fit properly, he will find he could have saved both time and money coming to me in the first place".

In Mr. Sahi's view, there is a great dilemma caused by this difficult economy. "People have less money to invest in their wardrobes, yet to maintain an edge in their job and marketplace it is even more important that they look good. Even though I offer a highly personalized service, top of the line materials and craftsmanship, I strive to remain competitive so a client can get the most bang for their buck and a suit they will enjoy for many years.”
