Fitting is everything when cutting a new suit and founders of Made Suits, Kelvin R and Benjamin Tay know this very well. Combining meticulously tailored apparel with convenience, this small shop on Robinson Road ensures that every gentleman can look their best without busting the budget.
If you need to save time, head to its website to purchase custom-tailored shirts and trousers. But nothing beats a well-made suit that's measured by a professional. You don't even need to leave the house – Made Suits can carry out your consultation in the comfort of your home or office. It strives to establish a strong relationship with its clients by taking the time to understand their needs, be it in choosing fabrics and colours or providing advice on how the perfect fit should feel.
A standard two-piece suit, wedding suit or tuxedo (prices start from $699) takes anywhere from two to three weeks to complete. But don't just stop at a new suit. Made Suits specialises in one-piece collar shirts also known as the "Cooper collar" (made famous by 50s Hollywood icon, Gary Cooper). The collar is cut from a single piece of cloth that extends through the front torso and doubles as a placket, which allows the collar to stand on its own. During the weekends, keep it casual with a pair of handcrafted denim jeans. As with everything else this top tailor does, the jeans are fully customised so go crazy with rips and colour fading.
