My tailor is actually like my doctor, when my clothes feel ill-fitting, I consult my tailor.. The fact is actually clothes off-the-rack are made to fit a mannequin, and every person's body is shaped differently..

I have altered practically every clothing article from t-shirts, polo-t's, short pants, jeans, khakis, dress shirts, and sportsjackets..

Only if absolutely necessary.

However, I never alter jeans, as the shop usually makes a mess of it.

How much does an alteration usually cost?
Like for example... I have a dress shirt that is too long and I want to make it shorter...

"dress shirt too long" as in the body length of the shirt? the issue in a dress shirt is not too much about the body length as they are meant to be tucked in.. but if they ARE too long, then im assuming that they are far off your correct size..

however if u are talking about the sleeves of the dress shirt being too long, then that would cost u about RM30 to shorten from an expert tailor..

I don't buy if it doesn't fit.

Which is why I don't shop at Zara and Massimo Dutti. The lengths are just too awkward.

CK, DKNY, Polo RL are brands that fit me exceptionally well.

If you're talking about shirts and trousers, I always get them made.

I'm very particular about jeans alterations. Preferably chain stitching at the end. But then again it's unlikely that you're buying raw selvedge denim so any tailor can do your alterations.

yeah sure no problem, my tailor is Ruth's at KLCC, it is on the ground floor below the Louis Vuitton store.. you can look for Ruth herself, or if not look for her son Vincent.. the price is a little more than regular tailor stores but they have served me well.. ALWAYS ALWAYS try on your clothes after the alterations have been done, and if for example you feel that the pant/shirt length is not short enough etc, do let them know so they can redo it, they wont double charge..

ive actually went around finding tailors to bring in the shoulders of my jacket, however no one was good enough.. i even went to Lord's but they were not able to do so.. the only place who was able to fulfill my request is my current tailor - Ruth's alteration..

shoulders = RM50
sleeve = RM60

@jind86> Many thanks for the info, jind. Indeed dealing with the shoulder is hard especially when they need to deal with the shoulder pad and/or roped shoulders. Not good a job and the back of the jacket might have a curl below the collar.

yupp actually sometimes altering can cost quite abit.. of course i do not buy clothes that do not fit, take a dress shirt for example, they may fit good on the body but the sleeve length would always be too long for me.. therefore the length has to be shortened.. all my dress shirts are altered to the same length.. same goes with my suit jackets.. i measure my shirts according to my suit jackets as well, they are half an inch longer than my suit jackets so a little shirt cuff will be displayed when i wear the jacket..

im not too sure about cheap tailors, im sure there exist, but the question you shld also ask is are they good?

from my experience, spark manshop tailors are only trying to push on sales and they would do and say whatever just to sell.. but hey maybe it was just that particular tailors i encounted or maybe my luck is bad with them.. what would be better is give the name of your spark manshop tailor to TS so at least he knows specifically who to look for which provides good service..

I need to alter my shirt too.
The shoulder and sleeve lengths are ok but the width (the torso part) is too big.
Really look untidy when I tuck in.
Can that part be altered?
Basically how much?

do take note that the quoted price is for jackets and not t-shirts/dress shirts.. t-shirts and dress shirts would cost less.. just thought i'd state this in the case that there are any confusion..

you are able to alter a blazer, but there's a limit (similar with any other clothing).. if it is way bigger than your size then probably nothing can be done.. post up a picture of you wearing the blazer in the Suit thread and we will take a look..

From what i know, if the size is much too big on shoulder and collar, it does not make sense in value to get it altered. Many tailors would not do it because it involves too much work. The usual ones that most tailors would work on are sleeves and waist.

Fusion, well i didn't remember the shops name. But there are 2 ladies in there on a small hidden section in the Endah Parade. There are 2 more alteration shops in Times Square and 2 more in Sg Wang. these are just alteration shops and not tailoring. Maybe would enquire this weekend.

length of the body? well it depends on the shirt, if it is too wide and you alter it too short then it would appear fat and wide.. well i cant exactly answer your question as no details are given.. it is like me simply asking "if i buy a size S shirt, will it look weird on me?"..

T-shirts are kind of hard to describe. Too long, it would mean u are trying on a rapper look. Too short, maybe looks like a girls tank top. I don't think there is a correct t-shirt. It depends on the manufacturer that designs the style. I like T-shirts with full sized short sleeves.

Nowdays they shorten the length to almost half off it. And it is angled very short on the bottom of the armpit. The cutting is not as generous or as traditional as last time. I can say you loose at least 2 inches on every part of the T-shirt every when you compare a year 2005 T-shirt and a 2008 one. An XL is not an XL anymore. shakehead.gif

Anyway if you want to shorten a T-shirt, i suggest you take an old one that you like and match the length. icon_rolleyes.gif

Hi Guys,

I would like to suggest this tailors;

Binwani's @ The Curve, I have been tailoring from them for quite sometime and I would say they are the best so far I ever had I have tried Lords, Fox, tux and blazers etc etc. Binwani's are quite pricey but their customer service and tailoring makes up for the price. they really listen and give sugesstion before making you anything. I would say if you like bespoke tailorng try them.
Pricing from RM 400 for pants and Suits RM 2000 onwards, shirts from RM 200 onwards.

I know places like Euro Moda, Gulatis and Binwanis have at least a certified tailor inside. I was pulling a prank on one of them last time just to know that they are the tailor and not the saleman. hahaha.

I would definately recommend them for custom tailoring and alterations as well, they altered some of my Shirts that I tailored in Bangkok and they did a good job on it and definately recommend them if you are seeking quality

That is a thought. What i know if you buy off the rack, they can alter the body length and sleeves. But not the shoulders. Its much like a normal coat. If your coat has a liner, then its a definite no. Too much job. Trech coat without shoulder padding seems easier. But overcoat is hard. And you need to wear your suit jacket on with the trench or overcoat to get them altered. Unless you are thinking of something else.

They come with shoulder padding? I thought they weren't supposed to have shoulder padding since they are meant to be worn over other articles of clothing and if it's something thick underneath like a suit with padded shoulders, padding would only double the bulk on the shoulders, making you look like... an american football player. Both my trenches (one of them purchased from US) do not have shoulder padding.

By the way, I remember reading from somewhere last time that the seams and threads of trenches are coated with water-resistant material so that water doesn't seep through the seams and stiches. Delivering them to the tailor for alteration might somewhat jeopardize the garment's water-resistancy.

Some do have. Just to add some girth to the shoulders. About the seams not being water proof, i remember reading about waterproof yarns. But its for baggage use. I wonder if they have used it for outter wear as well? Hmmm.....

making it looser, probably not.. cos usually ready made shirts rarely have extra fabric for the tailor to work with.. what's the problem? because i seriously doubt it's too tight to begin with..

I don't think anyone alters Polo shirts. Also the strings used on them is different from the ones used for making shirts and such. I believe they are stretchable strings.

Used to be Binwani's but I dont used them anymore due to some circumstances, I am changing my tailor. Recently I tried Granoff and Bespoked for my trousers and Shirt. I am yet to see the results,also I have a free lance tailor who used to work with zegna and currently working with one of the tailor that i used before. He is good and he does a good job the only problem is he does not have a base yet and its hard to get him as he is busy working.
Other then that I am still looking

Its much more expensive to get things tailored in Singapore or Malaysia. I usually get stuff done at Bangkok. My tailor Excelsior have done a wonderful job for me for over a decade and i have recommended many people to them and most are happy. You pay 6500 For medium quality wool and its worth the value for having it Slim fit with smaller lapel like those in the GQ magazine. I usually pick 3 to 4 suits each visit i make to Bangkok.

I remember that there's a specialized leather garment / shoes / accessory alteration shop on the P1 level of 1 Utama. I've no idea regarding the costs as I've not used its service.

I am sure they can be altered from the crotch down. Nothing too extreme I suppose.

Gents,

Today I tried slimming down my shirt using a backstitch. And it seems to do the trick.

I don't know. I paid RM140 to a tailor in Bentong to do it. It took a lot of coaxing from me. He was reluctant to touch the shoulder.

But really, altering a RTW to fit is a lousy thing to spend time, persuasiveness and money on. I'd just get something custom made from scratch.

i've always had tailored my shirts and pants from Tux&Blazer Alpha Angle Wangsa Maju. A shirt costs around RM200-RM350 depending on material, and pants around RM280-RM380 depending on material.And extra 35% on pricetag for people like me(big size people). Nice cutting overall, at least they didn't make me look shabby in my clothes. Thinking of making a suit with them next. smile.gif

Tux&Blazer Alpha Angle is perfect for someone like you. Undiscerning, ignorant, and clueless. There are many lousy tailors in Malaysia, and they are certainly competing for a place among the worst.

Sure. I "interviewed" the proprietor and his wife. I asked about the construction of their suits. These guys have no idea. They had all these Holland & Sherry stuff which they proudly tell me would set me back RM10k, but when I asked what goes into the suit as fusing, interlining, taping etc. they could only say "stuff suitable for suits". They send the measurements to some factory filled with Banglas and pass the suit on to the customer. These guys are small business owners, not tailors.

The only reason they are still around is due to people like elnino.

It's ok,jind.he can say whatever he wants,it's his right to do so.at least i got to learn something from his posting above. smile.gif

so then i should strike off my plan of making a suit with them and go somewhere else,right.to which tailor would you suggest then?looking for a tailor who had an experience dealing with big sized people.it's for my convocation next year,and i have a budget of RM3k with an extra RM1.5k to be chipped in if needed.

Nobody needs to pay 3k for a fantastic suit in this country. Bespoked 1U will be happy to make you one in acceptable wool for RM2.3k. The fit will be perfect.

Hey guys heres my update. I go to Spark Manshop 1 Utama to get my slack pants tailor made from scratch. material is basic, polyester. Wana test first how is their workmanship. I ask them to make a slack slim fit to my leg. Following precisely my leg and hips measurement. Hope i don't get uncle 'look' slack anymore, this used to happen to me especially if buying off the shelves.

the price they quote me is rm270 btw. smile.gif

I don't know their prices for pants, nor extra size surcharge. Shirts start from RM180.


Added on October 19, 2009, 12:00 amBut I personally do not find much chemistry with Bespoked 1U. The tailor I found I could talk to and be myself is to be found in Binwani's The Curve. They have a very large fabric selection. The tailor is Malay and is intelligent and knows his stuff. Workmanship for trousers is RM130, shirts RM110, french cuffs add RM20.

I just tailored made 2 shirts when i back to Penang last friday. i bought the fabric @ jalan TAR. it only cost me RM40 for each shirt for their workmanship and i was worry wit the outcome cos i have a very very bad experience wit Chicago Tailor SS2 for shirt tailoring.

I sent the fabric to the tailor shop on friday noon and told them i need it on monday as im going back KL on tuesday morning. at 1st they told me impossible cos saturday was Deepavali and they closed on sunday. However, i called them on monday morning n they informed me the shirts are ready. i worried at 1st as they took less than 2 working days to finish it and each shirt only cost me RM40. surprisingly, the shirts turn out very good and im so satisfied wit it. workmanship and the stitching are good to perfect. It is much much better than CHICHAGO TAILOR SS2 which cost me RM120 for a shirt wit their fabric but turn out like a SH**!

im planning to buy more fabrics and tailor more shirts there the next time i back to Penang. thumbup.gif

ya. its good bargain. i oso surprised wit their service @ tat low price. perhaps its small town. we have more bargain power. i inspected their work for pants and the inner lining is not tat nice.

Hey, any idea how much it normally cost to alter my jeans?
I've got a few jeans but the length of it is kinda long, it's hard to get length that matches my height perfectly. My waist is around 29 and height is around 174cm. Really hard to get jeans that fits me nicely sad.gif.

It depends on how you want the seam done. Typically the tailor will charge you a percentage of the price of the jeans. I think most will charge 30%, or roughly RM70 to shorten them. If you want the seam handsewn with a saddlestitch it will cost you what you paid for the jeans, For enthusiasts, this is the only way to shorten jeans.

But it's my first time altering jeans, that's why i'm a little bit curious and shock about the price.
I bought my jeans around RM250, you mean that i'll need that amount of money to alter my jeans?

Yeah i'm going for regular alterations, one question.
How are they gonna make my jeans length shorter?
Are they cutting away the bottom part of my jeans to make it shorter?

yes they are going to cut away the extra and then slightly cuff the jeans inward and have them sewn..

Like the collar, but the pockets are not so good. Also, the cuff should be made narrower so it rides higher up the wrist.

You can just bring it to someone and have them reposition the cuff button to make the cuff narrower.

You can also have the pockets removed. It has nothing to do with formality.

I went to Za Altera today to enquire about altering my jeans (Straight cut) to a slimmer fit. Quoted price was around rm65. Collection period is 2 weeks (one utama branch).

look at this, click on the links to understand each detail better..

most importantly is understanding the type of fit that you want.. then understanding the type details you want (collar type, pockets? cuffs? etc).. i'd probably say additional attributes which makes a perceived good shirt is when they have mother-of-pearl buttons, split yoke..

not really a rule, its just the shiny one makes you look more like a P.I.M.P..
cotton dress shirts are feels better on the body, they don't stick on to your body (when you sweat), and they breathe better, and are pretty much more professional looking..

Any recommended tailor around subang / shah alam for doing casual shirts ? Best if they also sell the fabric there too, easier so I don't need to search elsewhere. Casual as for example, check shirt. Thanks.

Hey guys I'm new to this tailoring thing. Just got back from sparkmanshop in 1u. He quoted me RM 120 and 160 workmanship for shirts and pants respectively. Is the price okay?

Does anyone knows the normal price of a shirt and trousers assuming normal wool cloth is used? Thanks!

just for the workmanship or plus material.. if it is inclusive of material, then i doubt the pants would be wool..

i think you miunderstood me Jind


my quoted price by them was RM120 for shirt, 160 for pants. These are workmanship prices only. If include their cloth, it would be RM320 above for shirts and RM360 for pants.

I was asking if the workmanship prices quoted to me was reasonable? 1 thing i notice though the Chinese guy was reluctant to even talk to me when I said I am new to this and was just asking.

Thanks!
