Guys, listen up. Ever wanted to customise your shirts, suits and pants? Marcella does all that for you – and at a pretty affordable price. Founded by four friends in 2011, the brand offers more than 125 fabrics in various styles for formal and casual apparel. It's now since expanded across the island with six outlets (including The Cathay, Marina Square and Tampines One), plus you can also easily personalise your orders online if you don't wish to squeeze with the crowds.
For shirts, all you have to do is go through four easy steps. First, fill out a form with your preferred designs (you can mix and match two different patterns or colours for your base and trim fabric – the latter will be applied to areas like the inner and outer collar, inner and outer cuff, under placket and collar wing), then select the type of collar (from narrow to button-down and even mandarin) and cuffs (think single square, double cut, monte cristo and more) you want, and finish off with details like your button and buttonhole colours, pockets and pleats for the back. Plus, you get to view a 3D version of the end product on their in-store computer, to give you a better idea of what you're buying. Next, they'll take your measurements and offer you a choice of slim, regular or loose cuts for the shirt, and you're good to go – your order will be ready in about ten days.
It's a pretty simple process, made more convenient by the fact that they store all your measurement information into the system on your Fit Profile once you've ordered a customised item from them. So the next time you want another sleek, sophisticated addition to your wardrobe, all you have to do is get on their website and starting clicking away.
Marcella also has a range of off-the-rack apparel like shirts, formal and casual pants, bermuda shorts and polo tees, as well as alteration services for pants and accessories such as cuff-links, ties, pocket squares, men's bags and bow ties. Oh, and ladies, don't worry. They've got you covered as well.
