Why not start off this text with the good old classic “it all started back in…” well, back in 2003 in our case. Magnus had made his way to Sri Lanka while studying at university, and that’s where he first discovered the magic of customized dress shirts. An idea was born, why not offer this concept to the large masses? Made to Measure was nothing new back then but nobody had revolutionized the industry in ages. His friend Nalin, who he met when in Sri Lanka, made sure our first production was set up and to this day still holds the title as Managing Director. What happened next? Well, Magnus went back home to Sweden and together with Mats-Ola he put this idea to the test. You guessed right, it was a good one.
Our head office is located in Helsingborg in the south of Sweden with currently more than 20 employees living and breathing customization, innovation, and progress. Our company in Sri Lanka, owned by our Swedish corporation, currently has over 500 employees in our two facilities located in Alawwa and Maho.
So here we are, 16 years later and still going strong, still with much more ground to break.

Whether you’re seeking an elegant dress shirt for a formal occasion, or simply relaxing with friends in style, you can entrust us to deliver superior bespoke garments, perfect-fit guaranteed. For too long standard sizes have crushed self-confidence and squeezed people into flawed templates that never truly fit. At Tailor Store, we believe everyone has the right to look and feel incredible.
From the first stitches to the last button there’s genuine work behind every single dress shirt we produce, with only you in mind. It takes decades of experienced tailoring to create custom clothes this good. When you slip on your one-of-a-kind Tailor Store dress shirt, you won’t just feel the difference, you’ll remember it forever.
These three words define everything we do. Our fit simply has to be experienced. That’s why, since 2003, Tailor store has been dedicated to making tailored clothes in one size only – yours.
A wise carpenter once said, ‘measure twice, cut once’. Inspired by this philosophy of precision and economy, we take pride in offering our customers superior quality dress shirts at unbeatable prices. We achieve this by cutting-out intermediaries, and crafting our shirts in our fully-owned tailor shop in Sri Lanka. This gives us total control over our garment production.

Tailor Store was founded in Sweden in 2003 by two young entrepreneurs with an idea to sell custom tailored dress shirts online. With their knowledge of modern IT technology and design they started this website, sending measurements and orders to a local tailor in Sri Lanka. Since then the company has grown significantly and today owns and operates its own manufacturing with a focus on high quality and social responsibility.
The traditional fashion industry is constantly in pursuit of higher profit margins, conveniently forgetting about core social values such as worker compensation and working conditions. We refuse to be a part of that. All of our garments are produced in our fully owned and operated plants in Sri Lanka. We directly oppose child labor and our employees are well compensated and treated with respect.Read more
We offer a sustainable way of ordering and wearing fashion. All of our CO2-emissions are compensated 100% by planting new rainforest in Sri Lanka, making the company carbon neutral. An added perk is that our clothes are not "fast fashion", but something you can wear year after year.Read more
