His Clothes

Nothing wildly clever but something to get you started….

  

RALPH LAUREN

The Paragon (#01-01/02)

290 Orchard Road

Singapore 238859

www.ralphlauren.com

T: (+65) 6235 6316

Ralph Lauren has the franchise on preppy, predicable style.  Classic expat staple.  BTW: Don’t bother shopping here if you are about to head over to Indonesia where all the Ralphie gear is made. They sell Polo Ralph Lauren over there which is the real deal and equates to around $40 (Singapore dollars) a polo shirt.  Do NOT confuse it with the copycat ‘Polo’ brand which is also widely sold in Indonesia and also features the RL pony.  ‘Polo’ sells polo shirts at around $20 (singapore dollars) but the material is not a patch on the real thing and they don’t last or hold their shape well.

Opening Times: 10.30am-9pm daily

  

MASSIMO DUTTI

Ion Orchard (#B1-02)

2 Orchard Turn

Singapore 238801

www.massimodutti.com

T: (+65) 65099081

Massimo Dutti practices credit-crunch classics really very well indeed.  Luxe for less, its clothes don’t cost an arm and a leg, but are well cut and, amazingly, pretty great value.  They sell stuff that you will keep in your wardrobe for a couple of years and it looks much more than it really is.  There are also outlets in Takashimaya (#B1-42/46 T: (+65) 6732 9133), Liat Towers (#01-02 T: (+65) 62358485) and Marina Square (#02-129; T: (+65) 6337 6088).

Opening Times: 10am-10pm daily

   

THOMAS PINK

Paragon (#02-39)

290 Orchard Road

Singapore 238859

www.thomaspink.com

T: (+65) 6737 4423

Great source of good work shirts if you want something off the peg and suitably Jermyn Street approved.  Proper cuffs and not a thread of polycotton in sight.  There are 2 other shops in Singapore (but Paragon’s is the largest): Takashimaya (L3; T: (+65) 6738 2989) and Capital Tower (#01-09; T: (+65) 6327 9638).

Opening Times: 10.30am-9pm daily

  

BANANA REPUBLIC

Paragon (#03-06/07)

290 Orchard Road

Singapore 238859

www.bananarepublic.com

T: (+65) 6737 2600

Eat your heart of American preppy gear.  Chinos galore.  Move over Ralph Lauren, this stuff is the same as yours, but cheaper.

Opening Times: 10.30am-9pm daily

  

UNIQLO

313@Somerset (#03-27/34)

313 Orchard Road

Singapore 238895

www.uniqlo.com/sg

T: (+65) 6509-1073

Japan’s answer to GAP, Uniqlo 313@Somerset is the chain’s largest southeast Asian store, occupying a whopping 17,000sqft and making their ION offering (10,000sqft) rather pale in to insignificance.  Shop here for their great priced cotton Ts and other classic finds – none of which will set the world alight, but which will fit well, wear well and wash well; some of the collections even preview ahead of Japan.

Opening Times: 10.30am-10pm daily

  

ARMANI JEANS

Isetan (Scotts) L3

Shaw House

350 Orchard Road

Singapore 238868

www.isetan.com.sg

T: (+65) 67733 1111

The men’s wear section of Isetan is a vast improvement on the rest of the store, which is old and tired.  AJ have a proper concession here on the top floor which should have what you’re looking for.  Despite being on the men’s floor, Armani Jeans stocks clothes for both men and women.

Opening Times: 10am-9.30pm daily
