I'm starting this thread for Singaporean members to talk about Singapore-specific things or to organise meetups in Singapore.

Tutu girls are about the alleged denial of a permit to some Singaporean ballet company from performing in KL because of indecent tutus -.-

But yes, I've just started on a sartorial journey and have used Iris for my first commission. Hopefully it goes well!

I commissioned a dark navy odd jacket/blazer, fairly standard I think, sb, 2 buttons, with patch pockets, relatively wide lapels, and horn buttons. Hope it goes well!

Incidentally, how often do all of you need to alter/ commission new pieces as your body shape changes with age/ exercise? I'm realizing that a lot of my clothes from just two or three years ago don't fit as well, and i'm wondering if there's a process for reusing bespoke pieces or if it just means its time to get a new piece.

Unless its massive weight gain/loss, bespoke garments should have some allowances built into the seams so that your tailor can let out/bring as required.

Obviously, if you grew your arms 2 inches, and chest by 4 inches, it will probably mean a new garment is in order. And congratulations to you for getting jacked.

The inlays are really only at the side seams to accomodate a growing waist measure. If you start working out and drinking whey there is not much that can be done.

New member here, Malaysian working in Singapore. I'm just starting out making some of my existing clothes fit before I venture into spending on better quality items. I need a place where I can shorten jacket sleeves, shorten/cuff pants and also taper the pants legs. Does anyone know of a good tailor to recommend? I stay at Chinatown, so somewhere in that area is preferable. Thanks.
