G2000. At John Little expo you get them as cheap as $20 for shirts. For trousers though, good quality costs $40 atleast.

The best part about living in east is Singapore Expo is so close by and every week there is some or the other sale :)

They're not even the same Levi's. Levi just sells the branding rights to a different company. That's why the fit and models are completely different.

G2000 is cheap, but the quality is crap. I guess it depends what OP's expectations are. The cheapest "quality" I'd recommend is Banana Republic. A step up would be Ted Baker. Both are relatively expensive in Singapore compared to other places, and they're both 3x-4x more than anything you'd buy at G2000. So it's up to the OP to set his budget.

Not if you're fat. I wear a 'M' in the US and most Western clothing brands, but L or XL for Uniqlo. If you're L or larger in western brands, it may be a problem.

Definitely go to their shop and try things on, don't just order online.

Someone ought to give our OP a lesson in how to use the quote function. Hint: just click the 'Quote' button and don't fiddle around with it if you don't know what you're doing.
