Looking for a nice, decently-priced suit?

I find it incredibly difficult to find a nice and decent suit especially near town. Add in the problem of a limited budget means brand names like Gucci are often out of my league. Yeah, thats the sad life of a student…

Anyway, I digress. The point is, when I was walking around Bugis today (wha’ya expect? I work there everyday!) during lunch, I came across this nice shop which just opened for business in Waterloo Centre, Yes; THAT lime-green building near the humongous National Library, selling suits that are rather nice and VERY decently priced. ;) Seriously, I would had bought one if I really needed one at the moment.

The shop is inside Waterloo Centre (which faces Waterloo Street if I recall correctly) and has a rather interesting address which is why I can actually remember it – #01-23!

Ok, more about the suits!

I asked the boss a little and found out that they were selling Black, Grey or Dark-Blue stripped suits made for the Italy market and as they chose to liaise directly with the manufacturers, they cut out the middleman and thus are able to drive the price down by quite a fair bit. Also from what I recalled, they were selling rather good quality suits at $180 a piece, regardless of the colour and you could even get just the jacket for $140, and the bottom for only $40! Which is a rather good price for a well made suit!

    I think tailoring is still the best. Most value for money, and it would not be as expensive. All you need is good taste for it to stand out.

    But it’s your choice, and I hope you look great and get a great buy there!

    If you were a girl, I love the suits from Blum. Absolute fall-in-love gorgeous. But they are way ex – about 200-300 per suit.
