Custom Tailoring Is in Halid’s Blood
Siddiki learned tailoring from his father in Istanbul, Turkey. His father was a head tailor with 35 employees and had learned the trade from Halid’s grandfather, who had more than 50 years of experience himself.
Siddiki's father showed him the joy that comes from tailoring and altering both men's and women's fashions. Helping clients find the look that is perfect for them brings an intense satisfaction that Halid still finds in his work today.
Beginning his work at just five years old, Siddiki spent all of his free time exploring his new passion for the tailoring craft. With more experience, he worked alongside his father, making custom shirts and suits. He learned to match the perfect design with the ideal material to create the best possible item for the customer.
Working with the Greats
While Halid is clear that his father is his inspiration and his greatest teacher, he has learned and worked at some of the greatest tailoring companies in the world. Over time, Halid has found that his true passion comes from building suits from the design and fabric up through the finished piece. This gives him the ability to fully customize the item to the customer's needs.
