Tailor Caid


Japanese tailors offer something unique: a focus on top-notch craftsmanship to re-create classic styles of the past. Yuhei Yamamoto of Tailor Caid specializes in traditional American suiting from its golden age in the 1950s and ’60s. Yamamoto offers a wide range, from summer seersucker to double-breasted blazers in Saxony wool, all in a medium-fit three-piece with a natural shoulder—once the uniform of the typical New York businessman. (Yamamoto rejects the idea that London is an obvious model for bespoke suits). Suiting starts at around $2,400 and requires at least three fittings. Caid provides a library of reference images from the past to peruse for inspiration. One-time visitors to Tokyo can have Caid’s custom-made shirts shipped abroad. They start at $200 and come with midcentury details like a wide box pleat, a back-collar button, and the perfect collar roll.
