Singapore - Clothes shops

Shopping for clothes abroad requires a little bit of knowledge on how to compare the new system with your old one.

In Singapore clothing sizes are a real muddle. If you shop in Marks and Spencers you will get British sizes. The sizes in other department stores depend on the origin of the clothes. Asian brands commonly use S, M, L, XL and the average sized non-Asian person will often need XL. There is less choice in the stores for larger or taller people.

It is possible to have clothes tailored. There is also good internet access so it is easy to order from on-line catalogues.
Expatriate organizations will also have more information about good places to shop.
