There are so many reasons why bespoke pieces are always going to be the best clothing you'll ever own. For one, it's tailored specifically for your body's unique measurements, giving you a snug fit. There's nothing worse than trying to fit inside an article of clothing that's too small nor does it feel good to be drowning in one that's too big for you.


With tailor-made clothes, you can choose the fabric, buttons and even the design. If you're thrilled about owning made-to-order pieces, we're sure that your beau will also be delighted to have one as well. Here are the places where you can get bespoke menswear pieces.


Suits



Every man needs at least one bespoke suit that he can wear to job interviews, business presentations and other formal occasions. In the region, there are a number of tailoring services that offer personalised suits. If you're situated in Singapore, you can visit The Prestigious at Boat Quay where a team of experienced tailors mentored by the legendary Thomas Wong will be ready to assist you with your tailoring needs.


In the Philippines, Tiño Suits is one of the go-to bespoke shops for the country's well-dressed men. Aside from suits, they also offer other services like made-to-measure garments.


For Malaysian gentlemen, the Ah Loke Tailor, which is located at Jalan Yap Ah Shak is known for its refined mastery of suits. You can expect nothing but the best from a shop that's been in existence for over 60 years. 


Menswear Garments




Yes, clothes that are fresh off the rack are convenient but if you really want to upgrade your beau's style then go for bespoke casual garments. Q Menswear by designer Han San is a great choice for the snazzy, modern men in Singapore. They do offer ready-to-wear pieces, but their history is rooted in the art of tailoring. You can visit them at the historic Telok Ayer Street.


In the Philippines, you can go to Exclusively His Tailoring for the best made-to-order custom casual garments. The designs will be created in-house with the client's preferences in mind.


If you live in Malaysia, look no further than Lord's Tailor in Kuala Lumpur. Aside from suits, they also specialise in menswear pieces. They have received numerous accolades and has the iconic Malaysian designer Prof. Datuk Jimmy Choo as one of their ambassadors. 


Jeans



Jeans are always tricky to buy because it seems almost impossible to find one that perfectly fits. So the best solution is to buy tailor-made ones. Ober.Blünck Denim in Singapore promises to give you highly customised, handcrafted jeans using the finest denim and threads. You have to book an appointment with them via their website as they currently do not accept walk-in clients.


If you're in the Philippines, you can find several local designers who do custom-made jeans. One of the most notable is Viktor Jeans by designer Ino Caluza, you can visit the shop at Ayala Center, Makati.


In Malaysia, there's always good old Levi's Tailor Shop which offers top-notch tailored jeans where your beau can choose the fabric and embroidery designs. 


Shoes



Customised shoes are definitely a luxury, but it's one that's truly worth the price. It's not just about the fit; you're also paying for great craftsmanship that can last a lifetime. Singaporeans can visit Ed Et Al Shoemaker where you can request for an exclusive bespoke service. They specialize in reinventing classic designs like the sophisticated brogue shoes.


For those of you who are Philippine-based, you can always go to the Marikina shoe district; it being the shoe capital of the country, you'll find a lot of options. Or if you live far away from Marikina, you can also book an appointment with the popular shoe shop in Makati called Sapatero Manila.


In Malaysia, there's XALF Designs, a homegrown brand that makes meticulous bespoke shoes that are fit according to the client's taste.
