First “Kosher Suit” Introduced By Mohan's Custom Tailors The High-Holidays Call For A Suit That's “100% Kosher”

Just in time for the High Holidays, custom suit maker Mohan's Custom Tailors, has introduced the 'Kosher Suit' —a suit kosher enough to be worn Rabbinical authorities and religious leaders, and cool enough to be worn by Jewish hipsters and fashion savvy temple-goers. The suit is the first branded 'Kosher Suit' to hit the shelves, and its 100% Kosher.

The garment is made-to-order free of a wool and linen mix called shatnez, which is prohibited to be worn according to strict Jewish law (Deut. 22:11). Mohan's Custom Tailors works with a Brooklyn-based shatnez tester to assure clients that all suits are, indeed, Kosher. Jews don't have to look drab just because they go Kosher. Mohan's offers a choice of over 14,000 exquisite Italian and English fabrics and styles for every preference.

“Suits made in a 'Kosher' way are always in high demand in the weeks prior to the Jewish New Year,” said Mohan Mike Ramchandani, owner of Mohan's Custom Tailors. “So we decided to offer customers a simple way to shop for these suits, by creating the first, complete Kosher Suit line.”

The “Kosher Suit” eases the entire process of observing the laws of shatnez. Purchasing an off-the-rack suit is a hassle for buyers, who then must then have the suit checked by a special shatnez tester. If a linen and wool mix is detected, the garment then needs to be fixed by removing the linen portion, sometimes dismantling a portion of the suit, taking out certain threads, and reconstructing. Now, they can skip this extra step and purchase a piece that is built the right way from the start, and is certifiable to be in compliance with the law.

With over 14,000 of the finest fabrics from England and Italy to choose from, Mohan's is able to offer many kosher options to deliver custom made elegance at retail prices. Using the same materials as famous designers, customers can select from over 40 suit styles, 16 shirt cuff styles, and 20 collar styles to craft a garment that is unique for their body and personal style.

Specialty on-site veteran tailors take over 20 detailed measurements for suits and 18 detailed measurements for shirts to intricately construct the foundation of the garment. Within a four to six week timeframe, the client walks away with a perfectly tailored piece.
