View Full Version : Men's Tailor

10-11-2003, 07:33 PM

was wondering if anyone knew a good men's tailor. my fiancee needs to get some suits Fast.... well tailored too.

i know in bangkok they're excellent, they can tailor suits in 24hrs. any places like that around?

thanks for any help.

The fastest way is to go and buy one off the shelf at The Pyramid. That is how I get all my suits and ties and pants.

But if you like, Sparkman Shop is not bad. You can find one in Taipan(next to the Honda Show Room), one in Lot 10, one in Subang Parade and another in The Sungai Wang Plaza.

Better still, you can always get what you need in one of those wedding gawn shops along Jalan Imbi. One shop there with the name 'Rex' is not bad. I got one of my suits there.

Hope this help.

Tux & Blazers in Sunway Pyramid is quite a good tailor but that's just according to me. Had my wedding stuff done there. I think they can put in a rush job as well for you but at this time when Raya is near, maybe not. If you are not in such a hurry, Sparksmanshop in Megamall. Most of the tailors in KLCC cater for "quick jobs", so that's another option albeit an expensive one.

Sorry EJ. You are talking to an old man who sits in his chair looking out of his window at his plot of council land. He wears a faded 'I'm Sexy' t-shirt, bermudas and Bata slippers. All these tux and blazers are well above his balding head.

lol... CHL....

thanks for the help guys. i'll go survey the options... but at the end of the day, it's up to the guy... you know how fussy they are about clothes and all these things ;)

In our country, there are not so much variety in the ready made mode cos we do not have a suit wearing culture here except for the high level people. But tailored ones here are relatively cheap compared with overseas but the fit is not so good. Spark manshop do have a line of ready made suits and blazers. Can check them out.

you have a point saml.

definitely not going for ready made, cos most of the sizes cater for asian and not european bodies.

i had a few friends recommend the tailors at klcc, and one at lot 10. i think he prefers tailored garments because he can choose the material... he'd probably want something a bit warmer for china.

probably have to make some calls and see how things go.

thanks once again for everyone's help!

I can recommend which types of Bata slippers to buy. Yes?


11-11-2003, 04:30 PM
have bata slippers already :)

i have bata slip ons i use in milan in the house. comfortable, only rm 20. won't pay so much for house shoes.

u know bata in italy and germany costs a lot.... rich ppl shop there :D

when i go there they're like "WAH... BATA"



11-11-2003, 04:35 PM
Heck, I go for only the mold-injected water-proof slippers that used to sell for RM1 per pair - now already RM5 per pair. BATA now too expensive for me lah. No fashion statement - keeps my feet off the raw earth; that's why we need to be shod, no?

11-11-2003, 04:37 PM
to tell u the truth i don't use slippers anymore. especially when it rains, all the sand and grime gets stuck between the toes.

and some ppl have ugly toes.... yet they show it off... ugh....

I have no toes. So it is okay for me to wear Bata slippers.

11-11-2003, 05:13 PM
how can you wear slippers without toes?

EJ - With great difficulty.

Jericho - Sorry. Old man who sits in his chair and looks out of his window at his plot of council land does not fly first class or business class and thus he hasn't got a clue what you are talking about.

11-11-2003, 05:23 PM
jericho.... those give way quickly. and besides, if you're talking about winter climate, you need shoes that cover the feet well, even in the house.

the shoes i got had no back, they were made of denim. slip ons. very comfy :)

Actually the one they provide onboard is not really a slip on slipper. It actually covers the whole feet up to the ankle and very comfy to use during winter but as you pointed out it won't last long. Anyway it is free :D
