    Solito Fashions: Recommended tailor

    by colin_bramso Updated Aug 19, 2011

    There are plenty of tailor shops in the malls along Orchard Road and all have beautifully tailored samples displayed.

    The reality is that they don't all produce clothes as good as the samples!

    Solito has an excellent tailor who does actually give you a suit or jacket, or a shirt or blouse, just as good as the samples.

    They have a huge range of materials and styles, will give you a fitting in as little as eight hours and can have a suit finished in twelve hours. Give them longer though and the result will be even better.

    What to buy: For ladies or men, suits and jackets. Geina had three business suits made in three different styles and three different colours of raw silk.

    She chose two styles from photographs and the third was copied from a suit she already had. Each fits perfectly.

    What to pay: The suits in raw silk were S$280 each.

    This Fashion: Cheap, trendy clothes for women

    by YatieJay Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Most of the locals (i.e. 13 yr olds - 30 yr olds) frequent this shop to get the latest tops, bottoms , dresses or even leggings at a fraction of a cost than the clothing stores in Orchard Road. So, if you are on a tight budget but you certainly feel the urge to go on a clothing shopping spree this is the shop to go to. This Fashion store outlets are sporadically located in several shopping centres and some even in the neighbourhood malls. However, they ONLY carry rather small sizes from UK SIZE 6 to 12. If you care enough to rummage through their racks, you might be lucky to find a sized 14 or 16 top! Have fun shopping, Ladies!

    What to buy: Dresses, casual or formal
    Pretty tube tops
    Colourful tunics
    Colourful tops
    Pants, casual or formal
    Shirts, ruffled or normal
    T-shirts with prints
    Shorts, an assortment of colours
    Leggings
    Tank tops with laces
    Camisoles
    Skirts, mini, calf-length or long (casual or formal)

    What to pay: Price starts as low as $4 for a tube top to $50 for a pair of pants. Below is a link to the number of outlets it has around Singapore.

  • mode et creation ~ mr anthony: tailor in singapore ~ review ~ good service

    MODE ET CREATION at FAR EAST SHOPPING CENTRE (beside Wheelock Place - Borders)

    Men's tailoring service - AAA service ... Mr Anthony (owner) is very friendly. Totally no hard-sell at all.

    I also found him via internet reviews and all have been good. Didn't think tailoring would be so easy and smooth process.

    After some chit-chat with him, discovered he has been in this line for 30 YEARS! and have worked with ZEGNA (even before they opened S'pore outlet) Till now, he still maintains top workmanship by doing the measurements, cutting and blah3 personally.

    Only had to do 1 fitting session, easy peasy, save time save hassle. Got the suit for $600, shirt for $120.

    Rates quite standard (depending on material chosen) but he will always offer you "cheap and good materials" unless you personally decide on the very expensive stuff =D

    What to buy: tailored suits, shirts, pants

    What to pay: at least 550 for a suit, 80 for a shirt, 110 for pants

  • Monde D' Or: Jewellery brand in Singapore

    by nazemuddeen Updated Apr 4, 2011

    This store situated at the 1st floor of Vivocity, just opposite Citibank and next to the taxi drop off point has some amazing jewellery in their collection. Their "Soft Gold" collection & "Nature" collection was particularly very interesting for their use of soft gold materials in creation of their jewellery.

    Books

    by Pomska Updated Apr 4, 2011

    There are several places to go if you want to buy good books. At the Wheelock Place you will find Borders and Tower Books is at Pasific Plaza. Bookshops called Big Bookshop and Popular Bookshop offer stationery at bargain prices. One great bookshop is Times which you can find for example in Orchard road and in Suntec City Mall.

    Suntec City Mall

    by Pomska Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Suntec City Mall is the largest shopping mall in Singapore. There are many good stores to wander around. There is a good Carrefour in the mall. The mall is open from 10am to 10pm.

    There is also Fountain of Wealth which is the world's largest fountain and it has a laser and sound show every evening. It is designed based on the Hindu mandala and it is a symbolic representation of the openess in spirit, unity and harmony among the four races in Singapore.

    Warehouse sales @ The Expo

    by xuessium Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Join the Singaporean passion for picking up things cheap, as long as you don't mind the stuff for being so LAST season (or for that the matter, LAST LAST season) and only if you really don't mind jostling with hordes of Singaporeans for that last piece of cheap bargain. Trust me, never cross the path of a Singapore housewife who is determined that you are never going to cheat her out of that last pair of shoes at 80% price off. You'll be the one scampering off into the crowd with your tail between your legs.

    Every opportunity of a long weekend or during the school holidays, quite a number of departmental stores (notably John Little, Metro & Robinson) as well as the bookstore chains (Times, MPH & Popular) will take the excuse to organise a warehouse sale to grab your hard-earned money by selling their oh-so-last-year collections at drop dead prices. Prices could be as high as 90% off from the (previous) rack price.

    If you are a shopaholic, well, join the fun at the Expo!

    What to buy: Everything that the departmental store or the bookstore is trying to get off their hands.

    Bedsheets, pillows, pillowcases and travel luggages are popular with Singaporeans. You never fail to see people struggling with bags of pillows, bolsters & bedsheets!

    What to pay: Items could go as low as S$1, depending on what you buy for the departmental stores.

    Books can go for as low as S$2.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Conveniently located at the hub of Orchard Road - the shopping paradise of Singapore, Lucky Plaza is a haven for tourists and local shoppers alike. They offer an amazing range of products and services; from the latest fashion trends to the newest health-care products to cutting-edge electronics, even the delicious home-style hawker fare that you thought could not be found anymore in modern Singapore!

    What to buy: Great shopping for cell phones and lots of locals shop for clothing here. Only downfall is, most clothing here is for smaller people.

    Orchard Road

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Orchard Road is the center of Singapore's modern shopping district. Its two-mile stretch is packed with department stores, fancy cafes, expensive restaurants, and other places to spend a lot of money. If you are a tourist, your best bet is to stick with the local shops: to get a feel for the culture and to save a few dollars!

    Orchard Road is named after the farms and fruit orchards that thrived in this area before the city grew and overwhelmed them.

    Osim outlets & Department stores: Free massage !

    by sourbugger Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Many department stores have a display of Osim products which include an amazing new massage chair that seems to grip you just about everywhere.

    We tried one in a department store for a good 10 minutes. The chair actually massages you in sychonization to a piece of music. Unfortunately the test piece was "Woman in Red" by Chis de Burgh.

    Anyway, we we came quite re-vitalised by the experience. They also do a range of other massage equipment including a hand held hot-air / massager which was happily demonstrated as well.

    What to buy: The massage chair might be a bit heavy to put in the rucksack - but some places will ship.

    The hand-held massager as shown in the picture seemed to be available in loads of places for SD$ 168.
