Perfect Attire is one of the few tailors in Singapore that offer handcrafted bespoke suits at prices that will not break the bank. Fully canvassed, pad-stitched lapels, Milanese buttonhole and a fully bespoke experience involving multiple fittings. Invest in two-piece tailored men's suits made out of exquisite Italian fabrics such as Ermenegildo Zegna, Vitale Barberis Canonico and Drago for prices starting at just SGD 850 and their house collection fabrics starting at SGD 650.
Blue has been the new black for some time now but clients of Perfect Attire are choosing even bolder colours like dark green or brown for their suits as well as a preference for textured fabrics. Instead of opting for the all too common broadcloth weave, there is also more demand for bold twill, hopsacks, flannels and other special weaves.
The preference for a cleaner look also has seen a rise in clients opting for side adjusters on their trousers instead of the traditional belt loops. For a casual look, linen blazers paired with cotton, linen or cotton-lycra stretch trousers have been on the rise. Bold colours like Gingham checks paired over khaki or dark grey trousers are being chosen.
