If you're buying from big Department Stores definitely its going to be expensive. I had an experience with a tailor at Peninsula Plaza only cost me around $65 for 1 long sleeves cuff shirt. But then again it's much cheaper buying Marks & Spencer shirts.

Try Vice Roy shop Level 1 Parkway Parade Shopping Centre on Marine Parade - Local prices and big sizes.

Marks & Spencers have clothes in your size but they are way over priced.

Also somepne said that the Basement of Pennisula Plaza on Northbridge Road has big size casual clothes.

With the style & cadence of the above post, that wouldn't be one of our regulars writing incognito now would it? :wink:

Have you tried Mustafa? I think they offer large sizes as well.

If you don't mind catalog shopping, try the Lands' End catalog. I think I saw them in post offices here.

Make sure you check various Export (Expat :wink: ) Fashions around town (Tanglin Mall, Suntec, Holland Village). Their inventory is very 'hit or miss', but they carry lots of larger sizes for men -- worth checking out.
