8th Lining, the premium sartorial menswear brand offers made-to-measure clothing for the discerning gentleman at economical rates. Using high-quality fabrics from distinguished European drapers such as Loro Piana, Dormeuil, Drago and Holland & Sherry, the brand allows 100% customisation by using a unique 3D body scanner which provides 200 precise measurements in one second. This manufacturing process creates perfectly fitted garments unique to each client, every time.
Conveniently situated on the ground level of Atria building in Business Bay, the new trendy location in Dubai, the boutique is sprawled across 1,431 square feet of floor space. Established under UAE-based company Governor Apparel, 8th Lining was founded with a mission to create a leading made-to-measure menswear brand in Dubai through their promise of offering premium quality garments, an engaging design process and surprisingly affordable pricing.
Tarek Alhussayni, Managing Director, Governor Apparel, said, “Eighth Lining is the minimalist way to line a jacket in which only the front of each jacket panel is lined. It is best adapted for warm-weather regions. We have chosen the name 8th Lining because it epitomises the sartorial elegance of the services, we aim to provide our customers. It also implies that we are a Dubai grown brand that knows the needs, tastes and distinctiveness of the city’s diverse residents. Our mission is to give men a tool to help them tackle their life goals.”
Having partnered with the world’s most renowned clothiers, 8th Lining presents an eclectic selection of brands that ensures an unapparelled variety and quality of cloth across a range of budgets. With premium-quality cottons, wools and cashmere along with a vast selection of weaves, checks, pinstripes, Prince of Wales and herringbones – the boutique houses fabrics for every style, season and occasion.
The highly skilled staff members, trained in Paris, are up to date with the latest and contemporary trends. Upon arrival at the boutique, guests will be guided through the store. Here, they can make a selection from over 1800 fabrics and over 150 design customisations from lapel type to pockets, to vents, to the colour of the thread, to the jacket construction and many more. The construction of the garments takes centre stage with careful attention to detail that allows the customers personality to shine through the design.
