Modernize Tailors hits the silver screen at Whistler

Bill and Jack Wong, brothers and the owners of Modernize Tailors, are movie stars.

An hour-long documentary about Mr. Wong and Mr. Wong just screened at the Whistler Film Festival.

Here's what the Vancouver Sun had to say about us...

"Marsha Newbery's and Leonard Lee's Tailor Made: Chinatown's Last Tailors,,,tells the story of brothers Jack and Bill Wong who are into their 80s but keep threading the needle at Modernize Tailors, this relic of a shop...in historic Shanghai Alley."

Very nice, but who are they calling a relic? We are still in business! Give us a ring and make an appointment and check out our new digs a 5 West Pender and we'll make YOU feel like a star.

Plus keep your eyes and ears out for the film. Tailor Made will air on CBC Newsworld during Chinese New Year.

We hope you'll all tune in but better yet get the real thing and treat yourself to a Modernize Tailors original made with beautiful winter wools you won't find anywhere else.

We've moved

Modernize Tailors is back at 5 West Pender. It was the home of Modernize Tailors during the 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s.

For your tailoring queries, please call us at our phone number as our we are still setlling into our new old digs.

It was a great move with all our family and friends helping out. Makes for an auspicious new start in our old home. Thanks to all.

Modernize Tailors takes its next big step mid-March - we're moving to 5 West Pender!

It's the historical Chinese Freemason Building and the birthplace for Modernize. We were there for 50 years and spent 40 more at our present store and now we're going to clock a few more decades at 5 West Pender...that's right Modernize is going retro in a 21st-Century kind of way. Best yet, you'll still be able to find us at Carrall and Pender.

See you there.
