Good afternoon !

Since /k is populated by plenty of dashing, social, young professionals who earn >20k per month, I would assume dinner parties are commonplace everyday.

With that in mind, if any kind, benevolent souls can assist me in procuring a tailor in the Klang Valley area who are able to cut suits for my gentleman friend (and to complete it within a month? lol). Preferably the tailor are able to cut a fancy suit/tuxedo suit/3 piece suit as opposed to the normal suits, as my friend is attending his sisters wedding.

If anyone with experience can let me know the price range of these suits, and usually how long it takes to be done is greatly appreciated.


Thanks all! thumbup.gif

1 months too short a lead time. Sure you can get a tailor to do it but it might be more costly (expedited service charge).

Assuming you are using the tailor's cloth (not your own) be prepared to dish out 2.5k and above (completion time - 3 months)

Easier to just buy off the rack and get it altered. Faster and might be cheaper too.

Lord's Tailor @ Bangsar Shopping Complex.

The price depends on the fabric you choose and the type of suit. 'Standard' suits at least 3-5k. If you select Ermenegildo Zegna...expect to pay 8k onwards.

I don't think 1 month is enough time for a custom suit to be tailored/made. Why not buy one and then alter it?

You made tux or just bespoke suit?

He told me only full canvassed suit takes long time to make.

I don't see why not.
If your brother's wedding and you are the best man / one of the groomsmen then sure u need to look dashing as well.
But your sister wedding, she will go pretty pretty with her maid of honour / bridesmaids ... what will the brother do? just any normal off the shelf tux can liao la
