We know, it always seems like the women get the good end of the stick over here.
All those boutiques and beauty products and none for the boys? Come on – even the kids get a good shoutout every now and then.
Well boys, here’s one for you. If you like your shopping, check out these three boutiques that’ll forever change your definition of an oxford shirt.
You can find them at The Little Drom Store and Blackmarket No. 2, but why visit elsewhere when the flagship store’s right along Haji Lane? (Just make sure you’ve got your credit card on you.) Well-made, affordable, and extremely wearable, local label WanderWonder is the easy answer to building a closet that will score you brownie points with whoever’s looking. And trust us, people will look.

What can we say? The men know where it’s at – and Haji Lane it is. K.I.N (Know It Nothing) is a multi-label boutique with a loyal following for good reason – their handpicked selection of both international and local labels means plenty of options to choose from. Our picks include the classic Oxfords by Gitman Vintage, award-winning Engineered Garments, and English shoemakers, Grenson. Dapper boys, we know you’re out there.

Know your style talk? Then you’ll be acquainted with Visvim – one of the best-kept secrets of men’s fashion. This Japanese brand has just opened its first flagship store at the swanky Raffles Hotel Arcade, and while we’re enamoured by Hiroki Nakamura’s clothing designs, we’re even more charmed by what he’s done with the place. Even if you’re not looking to stock up on some timeless (read: in no way boring) pieces, you’ll have to pop by; this store is a beaut.

All right, boys, you’re up – you’ve been on the receiving end for far too long, now hit that forward button! We bet you don’t get to do this often.
