Denim in Singapore

Recommended Posts

There's a shop at the Heeren on Orchard Road, on the second highest floor (should be the fourth). It's called Woodland or something. It's a leather goods store that does custom work as well. It's all rustic and stuff, can't miss it.

The Lawn has shifted to Wheelock Place, 3rd floor if I am not wrong. Take the MRT to Orchard MRT and follow the signs.

I was told The lawn dropped Imperial...could anyone pls confirm this? And any info on how much a pair of Duke would cost me(in the case that they still do stock them)? Thanks!

Recommend me a few local-based forums where I can sell generic/boring DH, Nudies, Zegna etc (brands that the local mass market likes). I got quite a few items that I never wear and need to offload for closet space.

I think it looks good as it is but a slight taper would work fine too! But tapering means that you lose the chainstitch at the hem right? Lesser roping!!! :( That's the only downside I guess, if you don't get your selvedge edge cut off..

I think a taper would be good. they seem to fit very snugly around your thighs but the stacking makes the knee-down area look abit baggy, so if you narrow it alittle there it'd be just right.

Anybody knows where to get jeans buttons repaired? Does places like Tet's Tailors or that Dr John place repair buttons? The top button of my 811s popped off in the toilet today. :mad: After 1.3 years of faithful service, it's time to let it go for some 'servicing'... Anyone?

Step 1: Buy frames overseas

Step 2: Go to your neighbourhood store and ask to install corrective lenses if needed.

Eye frams in singapore are quite overpriced. Starck for Mikli frames go at 1G. Ridiculous.

In fact I have been buying frames and going to this store in AMK even though I live in the east because the owner gives me a discount when I install the lens.

Btw, where is Tet tailors and how reasonable are their prices and quality of work?

Thanks.

Funan mall, peninsular plaza have a couple of new optical shop. Go New China over at peni B1. Tony has a whole lot of vintage specs and good stuff there (excluding the plastic mold wayfarer etc)

If not, KIN still have a couple of Cutler and Gross specs left, pretty attractive prices too ;)

Tet tailor is at Level 2 of peninsular plaza. 2-3 shops away from Belief. note it's not the one opposite Belief. i only alter once 1 year ago. got my skull taken in. not too bad but i had to remind the uncle time and time again not to remove the selvage lol

Tet Tailors is actually at peninsula shopping centre, the building right beside funan, opposite peninsula plaza. He's on the 2nd floor.

Tet tailors is not cheap, but the uncle is a competent tailor, knows what can't be altered, how much to alter & where to alter to provide the look you want. He managed to retailor my very thick denim jacket down by entire sizes, brought it down from a size L to a size S, altered it from a regular cut to a slim fit - shoulders, pit to pit, waist, sleeve length, sleeve width and probably some other dimensions that wouldn't occur to someone unfamiliar with tailoring. It was not cheap but most importantly, he did a great job on the jacket, made it look like it was factory-produced size S, fit almost like something from drkshdw.

I believe hemming costs $6-8, tapering costs something like $12 - you can call them if you wish to check - 63395415. I once retailored a pair of khakis completely. Waist, rise, thigh width and leg hem - came to $35. It was beautifully tailored, fit like a snug pair of APC NS in the end.

Btw i know it sounds mad to completely retailor some pieces but i did it cos they were really expensive and i got them at crazy 70/80% discounts so the tailoring didn't work out to very much in the broader scheme of things.

Yes they do repair buttons. I prefer Tet's tailors to Dr John. Latter takes forever and produced sloppy work the only time i went to him. Tet's tailors is more reliable. Lots of shops in peninsula shopping centre where you can get your button replaced though.

I got my Fullcount 1614 for SGD$255.50, after the 30% discount so they should be SGD$365? I think the 1108s go for less, if I am not wrong... Not sure about the other models... Hur hur, thinking of getting another pair? Thought you just got a pair of Omnigods and Sammies? And yes, I am e-stalking you.. :eek: Hahaha...
