What does Modi have in common with ousted Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak and notorious Irish boxer Conor Mcgregor?
Not a lot you might say! However they have all in the recent years made the rather ostentatious choice of commissioning a suit worth 10 Lakh from their tailor. 10 Lakh! Must be made of gold you say? Well yes kind of.
These one of a kind suits are specially woven in the UK with a chosen name (or phase) in the pinstripe. Woven with gold threads no less.
Here is Modi in 2015 meeting Barack Obama in a dashing pinstripe wool bandhgala, close inspection reveals the pinstripe is in fact Modi's full name "Narendra Damodardas Modi" woven thousands of times to create a pinstripe.
But he wasn't the first world leader to commission such a tailoring extravagance as the twitterati at the time were quick to point out.
Shortly after being ousted after 30 years of ruling Egypt dictator Hosni Mubarak wore a two piece suit baring his name.
A little ostentatious considering he'd just been ousted a month previously!
And then in 2017 came Conor McGregor. He made sure all eyes were on him at a press conference for what was hyped to be the biggest boxing match in history. He lost the match but gained notoriety in tailoring history with this less than salubrious but perfectly tailored 3 piece suit.
Narcissistic? A little.
Instagram-able and unforgettable? Totally.
Working with the UK mill that made the fabric for these suits we can offer you the chance to have your very own version.
We would prefer to leave the expletives at home and suggest something a little classier, your name for example or a message to your betrothed on your wedding day.
Whatever your message get in touch today.
Delivery takes 3-4 months as each bolt of cloth is custom made to order.
Vanguard Bespoke is a visiting bespoke tailoring company based in Delhi, soon to come to Dhaka to cater to all your tailoring needs.
We empathize the hassle you have to go through finding a good tailor in Dhaka who understands and can deliver your desired clothing. A lot of times you have to rush and make few trips to your local tailors driving through the congested traffic of Dhaka and come home with utter disappointment. Hence we are here to offer you one stop bespoke experience for both men and women at your office or home.
Modern, well-traveled, tech-savvy, Dhakaite’s are simply much better informed about what fabrics, fit and level of bespoke they want. Local tailors just can’t live up to this new standard. They only have fabrics of questionable quality, they don’t understand contemporary fit’s and the construction is of such sub-standard quality you’d be lucky if the suits they make last a few wears.
Which is why we are really pleased to be bringing our world class tailoring service to Dhaka. Now through our visiting tailoring service we are offering the highest standard of bespoke tailoring on your doorstep or in your office.
Why choose us as your personal tailors?

For business formals a grey and a navy suit should be your go to, in something lightweight for the long and hot summers. We always recommend buying a 3 piece (with a waistcoat) to give you the option to wear as a 2 piece suit and a 3 piece suit.
If you need to wear a suit to work every day you need a minimum of 3 suits on rotation. Add in a black suit or a different shade of grey.
If you are wearing suits on a daily or weekly basis buy a second pair of trousers. 99% of the time it is the trousers that will wear out before the jacket, by getting 2 trousers you double the lifespan of your suit.
If you are wearing shirts every day, 6 shirts to start is advisable, Monday to Friday and one in reserve. Get your basic solid colours first before patterns as these will be your go to. And getting 2 white shirts is a good idea as they go with everything.
A Casual Blazer
Something to wear at the weekend and to informal work events where you still need to be presentable. Linen is a great option for this.
A classic tailored coat to wear over your suits is a must for the cooler winter months and overseas travel. Choose something in a muted palette such as midnight blue or charcoal, these will never go out of style.
For those who go to black tie events a tuxedo is a must. Choose something classic and timeless in black or midnight blue.
Once these basics are out of the way then you can have some more fun. Add in some bespoke chinos, a tweed blazer, some patterned suits such as stripes and checks, something warmer for the winter, something snazzy for weddings, some brighter coloured suits, a second more casual coat, a velvet jacket for formal dinners. The list goes on!
