What is a tailored dobok ?
A tailored dobok is a little bit different from a customized dobok in that way that you can ask us to adjust the size of some parts of the dobok.
If you have longer or shorter legs, bigger arms or a chest with more volume than we have to adjust these sizes according to the information we get from you.
Of course this takes more fabric and time and therefore the price might slightly increase.
