How To Tailor A Look In 5 Steps
EL Singapore|November 2020
Who doesn’t love a tailor-made suit, expertly cut and made to fit their unique edges and curves?
Dee Khanduja

If you’ve always wanted a tailored outfit, be it for work or a special event, take a look at the modern-day tailors at Assemble, who put their own twist on traditional tailoring.

Best known for made-to-measure tailoring and high-quality signature linings (more on that later), the brand’s founders started spreading their threads in 2015 as roving tailors, appearing in mobile stores and pop-ups.

They saw a gap in the market to curate an extraordinary “high-touch” experience, combining quality tailoring with artistic linings in their one-stop-shop in Orchard Central.

Aside from their signature tailoring concept, you can shop gifts and stylised items like socks, watches, hair products, cufflinks and bags, along with activewear and daywear, via their website or in store.

We asked the style team to walk us through how they tailor a look in five steps.

#1 Booking

Your tailoring journey begins on the swish-looking website, assemblesg.com, where you book an in-store consultation. It’s best to set aside two hours for this to get the full works, with no rush.

#2 Consultation

The experience continues when you walk into the Orchard Road store. You’ll feel like a kid in a candy store as you’re taken through an array of customisations that will help the team put together your expertly tailored ensemble. In Assemble’s words, they create pieces to give you a “high level of confidence to make a positive and lasting impression on your audience”.
