I'm saying that in fairness, ties are rarely worn in Singapore.
In fairness, the guy is a tailor in Singapore.
I suspect the shirtmaker just does not deal with clients who wear ties. Hate tie space on my dress shirts, unfortunately.
There is probably a thread that I could not find with the search function somewhere, but can someone comment? I tried on both and Dior sneakers just seem sleeker, and not just because of the much thinner sole.

This is someone I met in person and who saw the finished product on me in person during a lengthier overseas visit to a relative. This is also someone I do not trust to predict the fabric's shrinkage. Nice staff, but with limited knowledge. For example, they made a buttondown collar with no tie space (so the collar is pinched and crinkled above the tie knot) and with no space for a roll (so the collar points bend inward at the points and looks stretched tightly over...
Might anyone know which shirtmakers in Singapore stock good fabric (Albini, Alumo, Thomas Mason)? I have a batch from Joe's Tailor and have been generally happy with them.

I had some shirts made over a year ago and the collars now feel a bit too tight. The person I spoke to had this idea of making the collars a quarter inch tighter to help ties stand up better, and I foolishly agreed to this.

I am also worried that making the collar a half inch wider will be too wide. How much...
