Going on this Thursday and planning to get a grey/ navy suite. Which tailor has the best workmanship? Budget around S$400.

I would love to share the feedback or photos once I'm back.

I had 2 shirts made at Pinky a year back.

Service wise, i would rate it as good. They are not pushy. Look for the son of the business, i think his name is "Win". He speaks fluent English. Try and call before heading down, so as not to go at a time when the shop is crowded. In this way, they get to spend more time with you. I did, and was able to avoid a group of Singaporean tourists who went there to get their shirts done.

Material wise, they do use good quality cotton, but they cost more. You may chose the cheaper cloth, but i do not recommend that. My shirts are still working fine. However, their price is not that great, as one shirt (of good material) cost around $90-$110 or so, if memory serves me right. If they are unable to finish your order before you leave, you have to pay for the freight charges, which cost another $20-30. You can try bargaining, which i didn't do. They offered to give me 10% discount on the spot, 20% if i made one more shirt.

The cost really varies... as low as s$350 all the way to s$1k. The thing is most tailors market their fabric as pure wool or cashmere when they are at best just wool blends, or worse still... simply polyester. So be wary of dishonest tailors. Even at Rajawongse, they told me cashmere and wool when it was really just a poly blend. Best is to know what type of fabric you want before you commit to a tailor.

Some tailors just need 24 hours, some need fittings over a week. It depends. If its a rush job, be prepared to do alterations back here in Singapore.

Price- 3.5/5 ($30 for 1 shirt assume u buy 10)
Quality- 4/5
Service- 4.5/5
Allow to bargain - 5/5
Knowledge - 5/5
After sales service- 5/5
Range- 3.5/5

If you like the shirts, I think that's a good deal.

However I did try SKD before. IMO the workmanship was poor and the fabrics had defects like permanent creases and loosened fibres. I have since gone on to pay more for better fabrics and workmanship. And oh, of course, be wary when they tell you "pure cotton" or "pure wool". For that price, it can't be.

To each his own I guess.

Crown tailor coming, who going?

MacroHard 23-06-2012 07:12 PM

Hi,

Anyone tried Narin Couture?

Saw them highly recommended here on CNNGO's website.


i don't mind paying $80 for shirt or pants if it's really well tailored.

But wanna know feedback.

is this guy's style very old?
Does it suit young working men's taste?
Usually I make slim cut shirts.

For $100+, I'm pretty sure whats offered is a polyester suit. Still doable if that's ok with you. But I personally wouldn't recommend it.

Polyester is synthetic whereas wool is a natural fibre. Wool is more breathable than polyester and is considered more stylish.

You can go to Robinsons for eg. and feel the difference between polyester and wool suits. You can also feel the poly and wool blends. If you can't feel or appreciate the difference, no harm going for just the blend. Next time, when you can appreciate and also when budget permits, you may consider pure wool suits...which also has many varieties like super 100s, 110s etc.

If you are really on a budget and need a suit, just go for polyester then. Just get the fit right with the tailor.

If you're keen to know more, google the difference between polyester and wool.

G2K is mostly polyester or at most a wool blend. I have yet to come across pure wool suits there.
