About Us

Shawn Wah founded WH Bespoke Tailoring as a solo venture in 2015, marking the beginning of his journey into the world of bespoke tailoring. This decision stemmed from his passion for precision and style, which he cultivated during his apprenticeship in his uncle's tailor shop. Driven by his enthusiasm, he aimed to revolutionize the bespoke clothing industry.

The story of WH Bespoke Tailoring is one of relentless pursuit of excellence, symbolized by the concealed 'A' in 'WAH,' signifying Shawn's unwavering commitment to perfection in every stitch.The change from 'WAH' to 'WH' was not merely a playful gesture; it also paid homage to Shawn's surname, Wah, integrating his personal style and dedication into every aspect of the business.

However, in June 2023, a significant turning point occurred in WH Bespoke's narrative when a new partner, Edmund Yap, joined the team. This new partnership marked a new era for the brand, transforming WH Bespoke Tailoring into WH Bespoke ES Partner Tailor.

Despite the transformations, Shawn Wah remains the fashionable wisdom behind the brand, infusing it with his unique vision and expertise. Complemented by Edmund's classic style, they inject fresh, youthful energy and innovation into WH Bespoke ES Partner Tailor, driving the evolution of bespoke fashion while remaining true to the brand's foundation.

While WH Bespoke ES Partner Tailor thrived under their joint leadership, WH Bespoke Tailoring showcased its prowess outside Kuala Lumpur. The story of this brand is far from over, and Shawn Wah's commitment to excellence will continue to be its cornerstone, ensuring that every client experiences nothing short of extraordinary.

Shawn Wah

Edmund Yap

The Master Tailor with Thirty Years of Experience

In the world of tailoring, one name shines brightly as a beacon of admiration Edmund Yap. With three decades of experience as a master tailor, his career is destined to become a legend. Back in 1993, during my time at the Fashion Institute, the dean recommended me to an esteemed tailoring boss, who happened to be from a family of tailoring heritage. And thus, I crossed paths with Edmund Yap.

Edmund Yap is a treasure trove of the tailoring lineage, having honed his craft in England and becoming a distinguished representative of the British style of tailoring. From him, I learned invaluable skills and techniques, and I am forever grateful to this custodian of the tailoring heritage.

During my time in his tailoring shop, Edmund Yap proved not only to be an exceptional mentor but also a nurturing soul guide. He patiently imparted his craft, offering meticulous guidance that deepened my love and understanding of tailoring.

As time passed, I pursued further progress in the tailoring industry. Besides accumulating valuable experience at Edmund Yap’s establishment, I spent 30 years working in other tailoring shops. Eight years at Lords Tailor and twelve years at Burlington Tailor allowed me to serve numerous political figures, ministers, and business luminaries. Each bespoke creation was a challenge and a magnificent display of skill. Meeting the discerning tastes of these esteemed clientele became a significant achievement in my professional journey.

The legacy of the British style of tailoring from this illustrious tailoring family ignited a profound emotional connection with this art. Throughout this extensive career, I have strived to uphold traditional techniques while infusing my own innovations and inspirations. Every client becomes a wellspring of inspiration, fueling my drive for continuous improvement.

Edmund Yap, my mentor and enlightener, has left an enduring and profound impact. His story is not just a legend; it is a testament to conviction and perseverance. I shall continue to carry forth his spirit, contributing my part to the bright future of the tailoring lineage.

In this long journey, I always remember Edmund Yap’s teachings: to remain humble and relentlessly pursue excellence. This is my most precious asset and will accompany me as I carry forward the tradition, illuminating the path for the tailoring lineage.
