1968, Ramesh Kirpalani, a third generational tailor came to the USA to start his own custom clothing business. Being familiar and having first hand experience with the cache of tailor-made clothing crafted in Hong Kong, Ram had a desire to bring this quality to the States. Knowing the minds of our servicemen, who served in two wars in the Pacific theater, would recognize this name.
Hence the beginning of Hong Kong Tailors.
Having traveled 50 states regularly to offer his custom clothing services, Ram chose Birmingham, AL in 1978 to put roots down for his business. Since then Kirpalani Tailors has been able to expand and include their own hand crafted shop in Hong Kong.
Our fabrics are measured in Birmingham, sourced internationally, and made in Hong Kong. It's the ultimate in monitoring hand made quality.
Ram and his wife, Reshma bring an incomparable expertise to the South. Reshma, a lady's tailor, with 40 years of experience in hand making clothes has a devoted following. Not only does she work with highly complex embellishment but has been involved with custom suits and lines of clothing.
