For visitors to India, having clothes custom-made, or at least tailored, isn’t an extravagance; it’s the norm. And although Mumbai teems with tailors, the city’s fashion professionals, including Vogue India’s fashion director Anaita Shroff Adajania, make Golden Boutique their sewn-to-order shop of choice. Located in Colaba, nearby the Taj Mahal hotel, the store can work from magazine clippings or sketches, plus some measurements and fabric ideas. A noteworthy recent commission resulted in a perfectly draped, slouchy seventies-style women’s pantsuit, modeled after one seen in a Helmut Newton shoot—for just over $100. A two-piece linen-and-silk men’s suit starts at around $220, while women’s silk Nehru jackets begin at $180. 4 Mandlik Rd.
