The best places to get a bespoke suit in Singapore

The best places to get a bespoke suit in Singapore

Every man has fantasies of suiting up like Don Draper or Harvey Specter, conducting a business lunch and, come sundown, savouring a dram of fine whisky. But you won’t get that special fit from an off-the-rack suit. No, you’ll want to head to a bespoke tailor. A good suit is an investment – if you take care of it (and your waistline), it can last 10 to 20 years. Before you visit a tailor, be mindful of three key points: shape, fit and fabric. And be patient. Expect at least 20 measurements to be taken and two to four fittings. It can take up to 50 hours of manual work – which translates to weeks or months before you hang the final product in the wardrobe. But it’ll be worth it, trust us.
