Tailor

Postby ImMeeMee » Sun Feb 15, 2009 11:28 am

Does anyone know of any good tailors that can make customised office wear?

after 3 deliveries my figure has gone off-track, and its kinda difficult to get clothes off the rack at departmental stores.

thinking of finding someone with good workmanship ... may not be cheap but must be worth the money paid.

please recommend if you are already working with someone. TIA.

Reviving this 1 year old thread to see if the new members have any info to share.

Seems like I can never find ready-made shirts and pants that would fit comfortably. Anyone has recommendation for a good tailor?

Thanks, hquek.

BigD, DH is size 18 (only can get at certain bespoke shirt shops and they cost a bomb). He makes his shirts/trousers at Maharaja's as they were our wedding tailor.

They've moved now to Orchard Hotel Shopping Arcade which is above Tony Romas. Look for Bobbi or Armani...father and son family team, and better than CYC in my own opinion.

Else, if you're going to HK, go to Jantzen. Once they have your measurements (and assuming you don't grow - either way), you can just call/email them for new shirts. They will send via snail mail through their extensive network of SG clients and you'd usually get it within a week.

hi bigdevil,

These are the 2 more est names lah.

CYC is established brand, and apparently LKY (THE LKY) uses them - I've never been inside personally.

We used Oxford to tailor my hubby's shirts during wedding. Now he just buy off the rack.
