Hi Mac,

I hope all’s well. I wanted to let you know that we had a lovely wedding in Bali and the suit you made me worked out really well. I received no end of compliments (which is very unusual!) and I absolutely loved everything about it - the jacket, the trousers and even the shirt. It’s definitely my best suit... by a mile.

Thanks again. I’ll definitely recommend you to anyone who asks me for a good tailor.
All the best,

Hi Mac/Eliza,

The suit is excellent and fits well. I would like to order another but not sure how to do so without seeing samples of material. Do you ever travel to London or is it better to wait until I'm next in Singapore ?

Hi Mac/Eliza,

I got the suits in time and I already worn 2 out of 3, the 3rd one I will wear today, God willing. The suits fit excellently. The trousers are a tiny bit loose because I have lost some weight during the last month. I will bring all the trousers to be altered by you when I am next in Singapore. But I am very pleased with your work and the cuts of the suits is excellent no doubt.

Thank you very much.

Dear Mac,

Just wanted to drop a short note to say that I thoroughly enjoy the shirts, pants and vest that you have made for me.
They are simply fabulous and a joy to wear. I love what you have done with the vest and will come around to get more done.
As a credit to you I would like to share with you that my clients have commended on the brilliance of your bespoke tailoring.
I look forward to getting more of my office suits and shirts tailored by you.
Once again, thank you very much for making me look good.

Keep well and warmest regards.


Ps. I do apologize, this note is way overdue. I have been busy, though that it not a good reason. Cheers.

Hi Eliza,

We received the boxes yesterday. Stephen is ecstatic about the quality of the shirting material and the fit.

I am very happy with the suit. It is well made, comfortable, and light, just as I had hoped. Thanks also for suggesting the fabric, which is very suitable.

Best Regards

Hello Mac,

You might be happy to hear that not only is the suit you made my by far my favourite, but I get stopped all the time by people who want to know where to get one like it. Speak Soon,

Hello Mac,

Ah! It was worth the wait. It is beautiful, fits well and already has attracted favourable comments from my wife (this is important, of course) and my work colleagues.

In short, I am really happy with the coat.

Thank you for your wonderful service - I will recommend you to my friends.

Yours sincerely,
Mark Harrison

Hello Mac,

I am very happy with the new suit and shirts, thank you. The workmanship, materials and fit are superb. I think the only thing would be that the jacket feels a little loose when buttoned, due to the weight I've lost.

Please go ahead and finalise the last suit with existing measurements, and I will (if you don't mind) scoot across to see you in the next month or so with the jackets for you to take a look, and you can get my "new" measurements on file for future orders (and there will be future orders!)

Thanks again

Best regards
Marc Bell

Everything is just wonderful.

Dear Mac,

Thank you for your wonderful work so far, the suit you made for me is fantastic!

I have a small request regarding the pairs of trousers you are currently tailoring for me. Could you please make the belt loops just a bit larger than the ones on my suit?

My suit belt loops work well with my formal belts but the new trousers will be more casual and I will likely match them with slightly taller/thicker belts.

Warm regards,

Nick Haslett

Hi Mac,

The suit arrived in good order.

Thank you very much for the excellent tailoring. I have tried the suit on and it appears to be a good fit - despite the brief fitting process that my tight schedule allowed you.

I look forward to wearing the suit in the next few days and to seeing you again on one of my frequent trips to Singapore.

Hi Mac,

Sorry, I thought I had replied!

The suit is awesome. Just wearing it today to break it in, fit very nicely. Looks superb. Might get you to pop in a lapel buttonhole when I am back in Singapore, but really, the suit stops people in their tracks.

Liz loves hers - thinks it's too nice to wear!

Best money I ever spent on a suit, bar none.

Kind Regards,

Wednesday, May 28, 2008 4:05 PM - by Cosmo Kedros, UK

Hi Mac,

Thanks yours below - really looking forward to getting them. Once you've worn a Raffles shirt, everything else is second-rate!

Will Get the transfer done today. So the money should go through by Friday, latest.
