To help you with finding the best men’s shirts in Singapore, we’ve put together some top high street shops and smaller boutique options. We’ve also got some good tailors who make men’s shirts for formal and casual wear that will fit you just right. As they say, the shirt makes the man!
CYC Made to Measure – tailored and ready-to-wear men’s shirts
We all know they’re the granddaddy of suit makers in Singapore but here’s another reason to love CYC: their new line in ready-to-wear men’s shirts, 1935. New drops include airy short-sleeve shirts made from seersucker and linen that are specially crafted with Albini fabrics (because they know the Italians wear it best!) as well as more dressed-up denim styles. Whether it’s trippy stripes and prints, or minimalist and monochrome, these puppies are sure to add a cool factor – both literally and figuratively – to your wardrobe.
If you prefer something a little more exclusive, the CYC team has got your back with a made-to-measure service. Choose from ultra-luxe fabric options from top European mills; this is one of very few tailors to stock fabrics from renowned brands like Liberty London, Alumo and Thomas Mason Bespoke.
Undecided? Have a go at the new “Fabric Butler”, which allows you to view all of Albini and Thomas Mason’s latest fabrics virtually and send your wishlist directly to CYC. Looking handsome as hell just got a whole lot easier!
The successful local business is popular for its high-quality, custom-made shirts and suits for both men and women, and has even served some of the most important change-makers in Singapore, including the late Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew!
Check out their online-exclusive standard-size men’s shirts. Or get one made to fit; prices start from $109 for a tailored shirt.
The Shirt Bar – ready-to-wear men’s shirts
What started out as a design house, working for many leading international brands, has led to this local brand finding and filling a gap in the market – between luxury and fast fashion. You can shop their classic formal men’s shirts or quirky casuals in fun patterns at six locations across Singapore. Each of the concept stores has a bar counter with free tea, coffee and even dress-up tips if needed. Plus, 24/7 vending machines are available in case you need a belt, a necktie or something else for your suit at any odd time of the day or night!
Made from bamboo fabric, the brand’s Eco-ol shirts are anti-odour, cool and non-iron. (We like the sound of this!) You can shop online, and delivery is free for all local orders. There’s also a good gift selection!
Meiko Tailor – tailored shirts
Get your men’s shirts made here in premium quality fabrics from some of the finest mills from England, Italy and Switzerland, including brands like Alumo, Baird McNutt, Soktas, Tessitura Monti and Thomas Mason. You’ll get to customise little details, such as the collar, buttons, and even personalised initials on the shirt or cufflinks. Prices for in-house, custom-made business shirts start at $159 (100% Egyptian cotton).
New to the boutique is Baird McNutt, a brand known for its gorgeous Irish linen. Perfect for Singapore’s humid climate, the soft and breathable fabric keeps you cool yet looking polished when you dress it up with a well-tailored jacket, or when you dress down by pairing it with smart chinos or linen berms. One may think that linen wrinkles easily, but it actually looks best with a few creases. The best part is that it’s also machine washable! Available in sky blue, wine pink, washed blue and ashen grey.
