where to buy premium quality dress for DH

Postby karenmok » Mon Jun 30, 2014 4:59 pm

Hi,
For once, I want to buy some premium quality shirts for DH.
Since I have some money to splurge, where can I go?
I don't want to buy the "run off the mill" shirts that retail at SGD 30. I am looking for some premium quality stuff and am willing to go upto SGD 200 for the right stuff.
Any kiasu advice here?
Karen

It depends on your husband's taste, body type and job. TM Lewin, Hugo Boss/ Armani/CK, Raoul are some favoured brands among the guys I know.

(Need to edit your title)

Premium quality must be bespoke. You can only get that from a good tailor who stocks up with a wide variety of quality material.

Branded clothes are just that - branded, and they are not necessarily good quality nor fit well.

You can even get bespoke shoes if you want. It's about $1,000 a pair (depending on material) for hand sewn leather shoes from Diamond Walker.

Good luck and happy spending!

I suspect it is a brand that is so premium that neither you nor I have ever heard of before :wink:

Bespoke = made to fit
Not a brand I guess ;)

It's all marketing semantics. In our time, it's known as tailored clothes or customised outfits.
