From the article:

If all you're changing is the sleeve length of a shirt, however, the alterations would cost less. At Iris Tailor in Singapore, cutting three inches off the sleeves of a Z Zegna shirt costs a mere 15 Singapore dollars (US$12), about 7% of the price.
Decent piece overall, but this seems like a bizarrely random example of both a location to have a shirt alteration done and the nature of the alteration itself.
