Putting on a bespoke suit can make anyone feel – and look – good and the team at Mohan's Custom Tailors have a lot of experience in this. As one of the oldest tailors in Singapore, it specialises in bespoke suits for both ladies and gents and other custom-made clothes by hand. A suit from Mohan's is made meticulously and entirely by hand – more than 20 measurements and details are taken before a personal pattern is hand-drawn and cut from scratch. Using only the best material which is sourced by the team from around the world, the suit is then assembled using your pattern. A single tailor works on sewing together the different parts of the garment, from the earliest fitting stages to the final complete form of the suit. The best part is, you can get your suit ready in eight hours if you're pressed for time. Bespoke suits start from $300, depending on the fabrics you select. The customer is also fully involved in the whole bespoke process. You get to choose the cut, colour and style of your suit. Express yourself and make your piece your own by getting creative with your picks. Known for its quality workmanship, some of its past clients include corporate companies Volvo, Nokia and Citibank. The business has also received many accolades from Singapore Tourism Board and several other websites. So if you're thinking of making a bespoke suit, you are in good hands here.
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.
