If don't mind not having branded suits, there are some nice ready to wear suits in G2000.

They r also not that expensive cause normally they got offer - buy the jacket get the pants free. But G2000 don't sell vests la. Only got the jacket and pants.

If u want to rent you can try Dynasty in Campbell. Otherwise, most tailor shop also got off the shelf. Depends on budget.

But i think, a groom can invest in a good suit lor. For work, also can use mar:)

Hi Girls,

Is your Hubby thin/ well build or fat?

If he is tall maybe can go Zegna (cos the sleeve longer). If not Hugo boss/ G Armani. Their suit really have nice cutting!! Ask for slim fit. Hugo Boss and GA cost about the same 3K persuit and Zegna abit expensive around 4K

If fat i think should go to tailor shop to get a fitting suit.

If you want normal cutting suit, i think cheapest is G2000. Followed by ZARA and Isetan KLCC (there is one section close to Daniel Hatcher - forgive me if i spelt it wrongly:p)

Ling,

No Worries. Decent tailor made suits normally starts from RM600+ onwards. Depend on materials.

If you want a really decent suit, you can try Wardrobe at Sheraton Imperial .Tell them Kid Chan recommends you will get a discount. They start from RM980, but are excellent.

Hi, I reckon Dynasty is a good place too. But before you go tailor make one, try walking into G2000 or Domanchi to try out what kind of design suits your hubby.

My fiance doesnt quite fit G2000 cutting because it slim fitting and he thinks it's too tight at his belly. But Domanchi fits him perfectly! The fact that Domanchi shirts are good for ppl with short limbs (which in his case).

And at Domachi - entire suit only cost RM700+ not too bad! :P

Yup dress shirt = bow tie/ tux shirt

xiaoposh told me G2000 got , saw it in Melaka/Johor , i do agree not all G2000 will have,found it at U parkson's G2000 :o

Other than G2000 & Bonia, Alain D (RM300++) & Sparksmanshop (RM200++) oso got. Since i already bought, this is where i will stop searching :lol:

Hi all,

Just wondering whether my FH's tie has to be the same colour as his best man and the ring bearer? I'm planning to have my ring bearer's tie made from the same fabric as my bridesmaid's dress.

Anyone looking for MTM groom suit?
My hubby did one set (Jacket + pant + shirts) from a shop in BB Plaza. The shop name 'SMART SUIT'. Resonable price & quality :blink:
