Hi There!

I was contemplating getting some trousers and or suit made whilst in Singapore. The timing is quite tight though. On the way through the first time I arrive 7pm local time and have a 7 hour stop over, and I considered getting into town and getting measured etc, and then collecting and getting final fittings on the way back, as I have 40 hours in Singapore on the way back. I am thinking though, the chances of finding a decent tailor late at night in Singapore isn't really going to work, so wondering if 40 hours is enough time to get a decent suit made if I go straight to Orchard Road when I arrive on the way back? 

Any advice appreciated.

Its open late so you may just be OK.... Would be safer to put the order in when you are stopping over.

Your 40 hour stopover will be long enough to get measured and have a suit made.
Don't just go to Orchard Road though, have a wander down to China Town.
