Bespoke from Singapore (pic heavy!) - Page 9

Thanks

I ordered a linen suit from Iris tailors. Here are the pictures from the first fitting for the jacket.

I don't know much about the details into fitting a suit yet, but I have to say it looks amazing on you at a first impression.

Just reviving an old thread... was in Singapore recently and decided to pay a visit to Iris Tailors based on some of the reviews here. Will post some photos once I get the suit in the mail (was only in Singapore for slightly over a week to try and get as many fittings in as possible).

I was in Iris 2 weeks ago for some work. They showed me a bunch: a pashmina, vicuna and cashmere blend made by Dormeuil. It came in a black shiny round box. Price per yard: $3,500. Yep, you read that right. 65% pashmina, 25% vicuna (I think) and the rest cashmere. The hand was hardly different from 150s and the designs were actually kinda tacky...like what a nouveau riche oligarch would wear. 30 minutes later, an east indian guy came in...scanned through the bunch, and ordered 2 pants and 2 suits right off the bat. He insisted on some "recession" pricing with some mischevious intent...then left 10 minutes later. Jeffery told me that's one of his regular clients.

wetnose, we might have been in at the same time... I met that customer too. And yes, i saw the fabric with gold trimming. Whack!

I'm just wondering if anyone has tried PIMABS or Clothesmith in Singapore, and if so how do they compare with Iris?

If you want to pay S$2,000 or whatever amounts PIMABS charges for a 'designer' to send your measurements to a factory, be my guest! A fellow local SF-er asked once about their jackets and this was the reply exactly:

" Our jacket uses both fusible interlinings and hand-stitched canvas on different parts of the jacket. We do not offer fully hand-stitched jacket because it will cost alot more and will take 3 months to complete at least."

OK....

Probably saving a few extra bucks by shipping the thing to and from China via seamail.
