A good place to start for wardrobe staples. Branch out in to the Boutiques section if this too mainstream.
310 Orchard Road
T: (+65) 6737 5500
Regarded as a shopping institution (the flagship on Orchard occupies Singapore’s oldest and most iconic store), Tangs is comparable to Selfridges in London or Bloomingdales in New York. Shop here for clothes with a bit of individuality: Tang + Co is a boutique zone within the men’s section of the department store (L3), selling carefully selected international labels for men including Coast, Weber & Ahaus, Bagutta, Soe and Liberty Rose. The rest of the floor seems to sell shirts of dubious cut and quality and not much else.
Opening Times: 10.30am-9.30pm Mon-Thurs & Sat; 10.30am-11pm Fri; 11am-8.30pm Sun
391A Orchard Road

The anchor of Ngee Ann City, which is the largest mall in Singapore, Taka is a high-end department store groaning with gear from all the usual concessions (Hugo Boss, Ralph Lauren, Tod’s, Brooks Brothers – and on the list goes) as well as a good range of sportswear (L4).
Opening Times: 10am-9.30pm daily
