Mr. Bill Wong and Steven Wong of Modernize Tailors in Vancouver

April Smith of AHA MEDIA recently had the honor to meet Mr. Bill Wong and Steven Wong of Modernize Tailors in Vancouver

Below is a photo of Gary Lee and David Wong before the building of Modernize Tailors at Carrall and 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…

ABOUT MODERNIZE

Modernize Tailors is the last Chinese tailor shop in Vancouver’s Chinatown. It’s run by brothers Mr. Bill Wong and Mr. Jack Wong. Their father opened the shop in 1913 after apprenticing to a British master. Mr. Wong and Mr. Wong took over the trade in the 1950s. Over the years, we’ve created suits for all occassions and all walks of life, from movie stars to lumberjacks. No matter who you are, we put the the same care and attention to detail into our tailor-made suits of ever-lasting style.
