One of the best bespoke tailors in Singapore, The Prestigious, is located within Boat Quay area, at 62B Boat Quay.
The tailoring studio was established in June 2016 by Master Tailor and Lasalle College of the Arts Menswear Programme Lecturer Thomas Wong, former two-term president of the Singapore Master Tailor Association.
Awarded the ‘Best of Singapore: Best Bespoke House‘ title for each year since its opening by luxury publication Singapore Tatler, the 980 sq ft by-appointment tailor workshop offers high-end bespoke shirts, jackets & suits.
For the bespoke clothing, the artisan tailors utilise a signature classic style that is grounded in the traditional British way of tailoring clothes, patterns, as well as Savile Row techniques.
For example, it takes 240 steps and around 80 hours to complete a single suit jacket in a process where perfection is the goal – no shortcuts allowed – and every detail is paid attention to.
Excellence in bespoke tailoring at the studio is based a long-standing relationship with a patron – requiring patience and a thorough understanding of each customer’s habits, preferences and lifestyle, including even the tiniest of details – from whether your pocket fits your pen to where your hands can comfortably will reach into your pocket for easy movement to your sitting or standing positions.
Thus, every commission is made specially for you and with you in mind, and nothing is compromised.
Furthermore, each piece that leaves the boutique is completely made in-house with no outsourcing, from bespoke business suits up to the most prestigious top coats crafted with wool made with rare and fine Vicuna hair from the South American camelid.
In making the bespoke clothes, the workshop uses fabric from premier English and Italian brands, top-tier houses such as Ermenegildo Zegna, Tessitura Monti, Scabal, Fratelli Piacenza, Loro Piana, and Holland & Sherry.
