lol sorry eric is from personality

the men's tradition tailor...forgot his name
Men's Tradition tailor is Daniel. Have been frequenting his shop. My shirts there are $80 for materials, $65 for others.

So I should try out Personality and Tessuti along same level?

Are the worksmanship/design/materials better, and the pricing similar?

honestly i dunno wud material...but very comfortable to wear and touch
and i feel the quality is better than $70 type from Personality or Oxford

the tailor told me it's egyptian cotton...but at this price i doubt it's the better quality ones

those technical terms like 2 ply, 1 ply, sea-island, egyptian, pima...blah
i never know what the hell they are...i wear liao comfortable den ok lo
i dun own enuff of each to tell the diff yet, so for now haf to rely on the tailor's words...

to me shld be higher the quality better the price
but at $60/shirt at men's tradition i think can try 1 or 2 and see how

So your this $60 is which shop in Peninsula???
The choices of materials nice and many?

Egyptian cotton long sleeves shirt for $60 i think is SUPER cheap lor.
I think Tessuti quoted me ard $160 as starter for egyptian cotton.

yup i paid $60 for the egyptian cotton shirt, choices are extensive, no worries abt that, i think details like buttons more impt than designs or colours

and yes...egyptian cotton is very good cotton and nowadays there are many diff variations...too confusing for me..so rule of thumb is judge by the price, although it may not always be true

i'm further confused by the lingo that tailors use

shop is men's tradition

hmm...
honestly, $60 for egyptian cotton is SUPER CHEAP. Its almost 1/3 of the usual price. At least as compared to what i was quoted...

Did u have to get a few pcs to have such gd price?
Can post pics of the epyptian cotton shirts u tailored???

I can change my wardrobe if the price is so gd!!!!

I agree. Oxford's Egyptian cotton shirts would cost $170.

Today just went to make clothes at MasterPiece Tailor liao

1st time making shirts there... ( only made blazer with him & i quite satisfied)
  • 3 long sleeves shirt - slim fit, Cotton, 2ply.
  • 1 short sleeves shirt - slim fit, linen, 2ply.
  • 1 office pant - slim fit, straight cut, black polyester

I look through the different types of fabric, its design, maintenance and prices but eventually settle on cotton & linen

$65 not bad leh.
Where is this shop???

Those in Peninsula their prices quite fix. For cotton its ard $90-$100...

Though someone said that he got $65 for Egyptian cotton Men Tradition!!!!
Will try to get a piece for cny.


Btw, ytd i went to habourfront the hawkercentre there tailored 2pants.
Quite cheap:
polyester mix: $40
a dunno what material i didnt managed catch: $50
wool: $60

Coz my skin quite sensitive, so i gave wool a miss. I made 1 pants from that $50 material and 1pants from the $40.
I am really trying my luck...
IMO pants cant vary too much bah...
But I did remind the uncle 101times I DUN WANT baggy pants. Want something more slim fit. Hopefully it does work for him.

Will post feedbacks in abt 2wks time.

Golden Landmark...
I aga aga know is where, but transportation like abit not convenient leh...
I dun rem any mrt near there...
agree lor. I am not what ceo or what that i need to get those very gd materials...

IF i am not wrong, i think the gloss on your pants is coz its polyester material?

I got a pair of pants from Personality last mth. I requested for a slim cutting. Turn out really VERY SLIM...
Its even quite hard for me to squat down... :lol:

maybe next time we can post the pics of our shirts.. to have a better comparsion for a better tailor
Great idea!
Better if the pics are of the owner in the shirt and pants. Coz it will give a better idea the skills of the tailor.

surprisingly, i can't find any tailor in queenstown shopping centre who makes shirts.. went home with disappoinment
U mean queensway shopping centre? The one that has many shops selling sports shoes?
hmm...
I actually wanted to go there tmr too to find too...
