Patronized one such shop before in deep Bukit Panjang area and had a bad experience. The tailors were non-locals. Measured my waist and the tape was held very tightly. I reminded him it might be too tight and he insisted it was alright. 2 weeks later when the pants were ready and I tried, true enough, they did not fit. The tailors denied and insisted that I had a heavy dinner before putting on the pants. After much argument, they agreed to alter the pants. After the alteration, one could see the previous sewing marks at the released seams, and it looked as though they could give way any time.

After wearing the pants for one day, the poor quality textile material released bad smell. The back pocket was not strong enough to support my wallet and a hole was almost indented. My other cheap Giodano pants had no such issues.

The experience was really bad. Poor quality and bad service. Will never patronize such shops again.

Those type I try before. Pants materials for the 3 for 100 kind v bad. Better ones usually ard 3 for 120-150.

In Toa Payoh Central, there are 2 old uncles in their 70s who run a tailor shop. Have been making my pants and shirts from then for the past several years. 3 pairs of pants for $150, and 3 shirts for $180. Workmanship is very good. One if them is near Courts, facing Courts, go to the right hand side alley and he is on the left, near a shop that sells party goods. The other is near Bangawan Solo.
