In praise of pro­cras­ti­na­tion

If you didn’t know you could get a cus­tom­made suit at Hugo Boss, it’s prob­a­bly be­cause the ser­vice wasn’t avail­able lo­cally. Un­til now, that is. Sin­ga­pore en­joys the priv­i­lege of be­ing one of only 11 coun­tries to pro­vide the BOSS Made to Mea­sure (MTM) ser­vice at its flag­ship store.

No mat­ter your build, the key to look­ing great in a suit is to have one tai­lored specif­i­cally for your body. With the newly launched ser­vice, clients get the ded­i­cated at­ten­tion of a spe­cial­ist at the Ngee Ann City store’s brand new Made to Mea­sure room ‒ from get­ting prop­erly mea­sured, through fit­tings, right up to the fi­nal de­liv­ery.

The beauty of a cus­tom tai­lored suit also lies in be­ing able to choose the fab­ric. The suit­ing selections at BOSS Made to Mea­sure num­ber around 250. But­tons are usu­ally matched to fab­ric but you can also choose from other exquisite ma­te­ri­als for that ex­tra touch of so­phis­ti­ca­tion.

Each BOSS Made to Mea­sure suit is cut and as­sem­bled in Met­zin­gen, Ger­many, where Hugo Boss is head­quar­tered. The suit is based on the pre­cise mea­sure­ments done here in Sin­ga­pore. The brand’s unique art of tai­lor­ing com­bines mod­ern tech­niques with tra­di­tional know-how and in­volves putting to­gether 180 pieces. Get­ting it shipped back and forth be­tween fit­tings might mean a long wait but it’s def­i­nitely worth it for an orig­i­nal that fits like a proper suit should.
