About Mac/

Every single detail on a suit, including the position of the buttons, is important to Mac Ho of Raffles Tailor. To him, tailoring is a meticulous art just like architecture and must be very precise especially when it comes to the making of men's suits.

He has tailored suits for local newscasters, and recently, he also dressed the cast of a popular TV drama series.

Mac also recently garnered the recognition of the industry when he won a highly acclaimed Gold Award in an Asian pattern-cutting convention held in South Korea.

He is not only trained in traditional tailoring but has also studied at the London College of Fashion. This gives him the best of both worlds.

"I treat fashion and tailoring as an art and since I was trained in both tailoring techniques and fashion design, I can blend these two skills to design stylish and unique suits for my customers," Mac said, adding that he has been interested in fashion since he was 12.

Mac attended meeting at 32nd World Congress Master Tailor.

Mac believes that tailoring is like architecture and so has to be very precise in its measurements in order for a suit to fit and fall well.

His meticulous attention to the subtle details on a suit is seen in the way Mac considers how even a button will affect the overall design of the suit.

"The level of the first button can actually play a significant role, whether you place the topmost button higher or lower on the jacket, it will make the suit and the wearer look different."

"No two suits of mine have the same style and cut because I design suits based on the customer’s body shape, character and even their profession as everyone is a unique individual. I can help each one of them to unearth their best image with my suit designs."
