Bespoke and ready-to-wear gentlemen’s clothing
In 1998, Turkish master tailor Tacettin Şeker opened his first boutique in the upscale fashion district of Nişantaşı in Istanbul. Since then, the Taji Gentlemen’s Clothier brand has expanded to include more than 40 Turkish artisans supplying clothes of impeccable quality to stores in Istanbul and New York City. Like the city in which it was founded, Taji is both proudly Turkish and inspired by global culture. Each clothing masterpiece is created using a combination of Anatolian skill, Neapolitan tailoring traditions and the finest Italian and British fabric.
Although Taji was founded as a bespoke tailoring service, the outlet at Raffles Istanbul does offer some ready-to-wear options for the on-the-go traveller. These range from casual items including jeans and swimwear to the more formal options for which the brand is best known. Ahead of a crucial business meeting or romantic proposal, find the best outfit for the occasion amidst racks of beautifully made tuxedos, suits and shirts. Şeker’s signature is a contrasting buttonhole, usually placed on the sleeve or lapel.
