I tried lai en in 2019 before.Hi, just visited Lai en today, as usual, business very good - first time visiting in 3 years.
Prices wise shirts still same price, I did the easy iron ones for 78 + topup 10 for mop buttons.
Not sure about the more atas fabric. Mdm neo still the one measuring.
no clue, honestlyIs igent still a thing in a covid wfh world, espec in sg?
Man I haven't worn a shirt, trouser, GYW shoe combo since COVID. It doesn't seem like I'll start when I return to office either. I have literal stacks of new shirts and trousers that I havent opened either. Sucks.no clue, honestly
but - given the resurgence of interest in watches (as in strictly superfluous, outrageously priced, but damn desirable mechanical watches, not fitness trackers masquerading as timepieces) even among the young, the tilt back to office working (at least in places like NYC etc.) and the fact that men are peacocks as much as women love their clothes - I think tailoring will never really die. It will probably evolve though, if it hasn't already - I guess the trend nowadays is for very unconstructed pieces in highly breathable, wrinkly fabrics (i.e. linen) - suits for the "street"/ instagram rather than the office - though I'm getting too old to be talking about "trends"
And many men will need a suit at least once in their lives - as a groom/ groomsman, if nothing else - so it would be a truly sad day when there aren't any "proper", average/ mid-tier tailors left in Sg to make suits for the man in the street - high SES folks can always make a few weekend trips to Italy/ Savile Row/ Cifonelli etc
