Yesterday, 06 May, having some time to spare in the morning, I revisited Mr CUNG, my regular tailor in Phnom Penh at his small shop at #183, Street 110, Ang Duong, Khan Daun Penh (Central Phnom Penh). Surprise, surprise, but his small shop appeared to have had a major tidy up and was all neat and tidy and all of his cloth sample books were instantly to hand and not buried under men's and ladies tailoring at various stages of cutting, fittings and adjustments for his many customers as has always previously been the case
He very quickly produced the docket and cloth samples from my previous visit and order with him.
I decided to order two more made-to-measure shirts and selected the fine cotton to be used from his sample books. Mr Cung enquired if I wished to use the same measurements as before or be re-measured. I chose to be remeasured as I wished to make a very minor adjustment to the cuff to better accommodate an old and rather bulky Rolex Seamaster watch I wear from time to time back in Sydney.
As I am in Cambodia for six weeks this trip and in no hurry for the two shirts, we agreed five days for their making and pick up.
All best regards. Ian
Back in Phnom Penh for a few days
