The 101-year-old shop on Jalan Sultan exudes an air of sagacity – a sense of tradition that cannot be easily dismissed as owner Datuk Khong Kim Lyew cuts and sews in an intimate room surrounded by portraits of his ancestors’ past clientele: British officers, cabinet ministers and royalty. The third-generation proprietor has yet to find a successor – and we’ll mourn the shop’s disappearance when the time comes – but Datuk Khong will press on for as long as an appreciation for tailored suits persists.
