Time-Tested Tailoring for A New You!

Updated: Oct 1, 2020

An excerpt of a coverage in the supplement of A New You in Portfolio Magazine

Meiko Tailor finds that gentlemen who has a discerning taste tend to

opt for bolder suit colours, with dark green proving particularly popular. There is also a shift in preference from the classic broadcloth weave to the more textured fabrics, including bold twill, hopsacks, flannels from fabric mills like Holland & Sherry and Carnet. Some customers prefer a three-piece suit made of Vitale Barberis Canonico hopsack window checks and a contrasting waistcoat, while one of the customers has asked for a customised Van Noten–inspired double-breasted hip-length jacket over oversized box trousers with side pleats.

Another trend identified by the Meiko tailoring team is a shift toward a more relaxed blazer rather than a slim fit Club suit. This statement suit is the epitome of elegant-casual, and it is versatile enough to be paired with any bottoms already hanging in one’s wardrobe. Tailor’s tip: Linen blazers are the supreme choice for Singapore’s humidity, and Meiko suggests Solbiati 100% linen from Italy or quarter lined jackets in Loro Piana Super 150s or Super 170s Merino Wool.

Mr. Chung’s vision for the company he founded more than 40 years ago is to carry on the traditional art of bespoke tailoring so that future generations will continue to appreciate and enjoy exquisite suiting and shirting craftsmanship. Mr. Chung’s daughter has joined the business as an in-house bespoke style adviser and an understudying apprentice clothier. The Meiko Tailor mantle, it seems, is in safe hands.
