Great variety of quality menswear

Available online.

This local menswear label may only be two years old, but it has since built a name for itself for providing exquisite shirts that offer thread counts to match several designer labels. With a strict quality control process, it’s no wonder ButtonNStitch has grown in popularity. For instance, the local label works with reputable international mills that create bespoke fabric exclusive to the brand. Soon, their product offerings will expand into ties, bowties, pocket squares and hankerchiefs – on top of women’s wear with items such as shirt-dresses.

Ed Et Al

Bespoke leather dress shoes

#01-67, Millenia Walk, 9 Raffles Boulevard, Singapore 039596

Quality leather shoes for men made by local hands is a rare find in Singapore, so it was with great anticipation that Ed Et Al emerged four years ago, offering men’s leather dress shoes that boast quality materials, expert workmanship, and brilliant designs. From a bespoke-only business, Ed Et Al has since evolved to provide ready-to-wear collections, providing their amazing shoes at reasonable prices. And in keeping true to their roots, this local label names their shoes after notable Singapore icons such as the Esplanade, Merlion and Sentosa. For those who prefer made-to-measure and bespoke shoes, however, rest assured that Ed Et Al still provides these services – on top of recrafting works for older models bought from Ed Et Al so your shoes are kept in tip top condition for years to come.

N. Tyler

Sophisticated tailoring with British sensibilities

Available at various stockists.

At first glance, you may be forgiven for thinking N. Tyler was a British label. After all, the local label is largely inspired by British aesthetics, offering sophisticated and sharp clothing designs for both men and women that combine traditional tailoring with classic British sensibilities, infused with a modern touch. Inspired by the form and fit of bespoke tailoring, N. Tyler toes the line between bespoke and ready-to-wear, offering top-notch tailoring with ready-to-wear designs for those looking for bespoke standards, but who can’t afford the time. If you’re looking for menswear that stands heads above the typical mass consumer-type designs, N. Tyler is the place for you.
