KMLim, why tailor-make your pants when there're tons of ready-made choices, eh? I remember yonks ago when I was a kid, my parents would take me to the tailor's. Suppose it was the trend then but I see it's no longer the 'in' thing these days. :) And, sorry, I can't recommend you a tailor corz I haven't been to one for 20 years! :D

sugarfree: If only I don't have a tummy, then I won't even bother posting this. Each time wear those ready make one make me almost like a clown; the cloth that goes to the leg is too wide.
And some more I buy it for my bridal photo session ma.

you can try de catano in summit usj 1. it's on the first floor of the cinema side of the mall.

we've been there to get suits, shirts and pants sewn. no problem so far. pricing also not too expensive. of course it all depends on the material that you choose

There is one near Court 7 infront of the schools (primary/secondary) called Subang Perdana Tailor... Not too expensive and I also cant get mine in the dept stores :D

kmlim, you can try the Montana tailor next to Seapark's Sunrise duckrice restaurant if the design and pricing is within your fancy.

Yup. My hubby has problems shopping as well though the problem is more with buying shirts. But I like how he looks in his tailored pants. :p

Ya, if the shirt is the right size, then i can't button up the collar. Then with bigger size shirt that fits the neck however the sleeves will be too long which looks very unsightly if all rolled up.

As for the pants, you can find the right size (read: waist) but as for the length it will be too long...well, no problem...just cut it short. But wait! If you cut the pants shorter then the width of the bottom will look like bell-bottom stylo. Also, the off-the-shelf pants normally looks very baggy/loose on me. Your pick.

For tailors I prefer those old timers from old 'Asia Jaya era' who've all moved to Amcorp mall. Their pricing is reasonable and workmanship is pretty good. One of them is Vincent tailor, just a few doors away from the Popular bookshop at Level 2 or 3 in Amcorp.

For ready mades, hv u tried Marks & Spencer? Though their prices are kinda high, but the material used are good quality (fine wool or wool blend starts at RM300-400) they're slightly more expensive than local fine tailored wool pants which starts at Rm200-250 (KL price) depending on tailor & material used.

In western countries, most ppl buy their clothes off the rack so they come in a combination of sizes for waist n inseam, totally unlike the one size for all local made pants. If someone has large waist but short in stature, he can most likely still find a W40 L28 :D at M&S that are made with acceptable proportions :D Another option is buy them from the tailoring dept run by SparkMenshop in Jusco or Parkson or MJ(?) these should come in a variety of Waist/Lengths too.

Worksmanship wise, tailored pants still beat any ready mades pants down(pun intended) :p I like mine tailored so I can put in my own specs, like extra partition for coins & keys, and ask for a back pocket with button for wallets on my prefered side. And these quality tailored pants are build to lasts n lasts. Somehow I believe the ready mades are made to lose their shape & wear out faster. :o

Whatever u do, don't go to a tailor and ask for cheap synthetic materials like polyester or whatever poly-blends. These material don't last and they acquire a shine after repeated ironing. You don't want to waste the time, effort & high tailoring cost to end up with a pair of cheap looking pants, do u? If you want cheap pants then buy cheap pants off the rack. Unless u can find a kampong tailor who can make pants cheaper than those sold in supermarkets. :p

Try Tux&Blazers @ Sunway Pyramid. They are not expensive and the material and craftsmenship is something to shout about. Even the costs for their suits are not as expensive as Sparks or anyone else of that standard.
