Kotmj's trip to Singapore, that wasteland of yore

Recommended Posts

Mr. Liang's own jacket was on the bed. I subjected it to intense scrutiny. The chest is soft -- body canvas was used as chestpiece. The shoulders were heavily padded.

Day 4 dinner, I saw that the Korean tailor was wearing his linen display jacket. It was too big for him, especially in the hips. But I couldn't resist having a picture taken with him.

This was the farewell night dinner. Here the Koreans singing us a farewell song.

Wow, Monsieur kotmj, how did you get invited to this event?

By handing over a tonload of money...

 

...and by being in the trade.

 

There's nobody there who isn't in the trade.

Day 3 dinner was a black tie event with a fashion show thrown in. It was a reaaaaly long fashion show.

Random Singaporean A-list celebs. The evening felt better for me because of them. Otherwise it would have just been a roomful of old tailors.

A very, very chatty man who strongly believes in the tailoring cause!

He's my role model!

The entire event was organized exceedingly well. It's surreal, now that I think of it, to be waited on by successful proprietors of tailoring businesses sporting Hermes Birkins and solid gold Pateks. The level of energy the organizers displayed was astounding. I'm so glad I was invited to join.

The lapels on the Korean blow the 1st prize submission outta the water. I really like the set of the collar too. I think opening the quarters a little more would really set off the hip suppression and windowpanes, though. It's a very Italian look already, anyways.

The writer's partner is a big fan of Vanda, it seems.

She's also very pretty.

This is the 2nd prize jacket

Very nicely written. Kudos to you and your GF.

 

Also reminds me that I have yet to finish the mini series on my blog!! I think so far no one has posted results of the tailoring competition to show how the Taiwanese pwned everyone else. Will get to it soon.. i hope.
