Expanding its collection of wardrobe staples ever since, Arcade also offers accessories such as bags, pins, socks, towels, shoes to pair with your new clothes, as well as smart suits for that special occasion!
In Good Company
The local fashion label, best known for its clean-cut design aesthetic and classic pieces with a twist, introduced its first-ever menswear collection to much fanfare last year. What can you expect, lads? Streamlined wardrobe staples ranging from cotton jersey T-shirts to crisp cotton poplin shirts, tailored shorts, bomber jackets, utilitarian pants, and cotton gabardine cropped trousers – everything a gent needs in his style arsenal.
Can’t get enough of Japanese aesthetics? Make under-the-radar menswear label Biro your new favourite online store. The brand is home to timeless everyday essentials, such as silk cotton tees, floral tops, and chambray overshirts, made from premium fabrics sourced globally, and immaculately tailored in Japan.
This local online menswear label designs for dudes seeking easy styles that are not too mass market, minus the hefty price tag. With uncomplicated cuts, unfussy lines and typically in monochrome colours, The Authority is a clever fusion of minimalist fashion with a touch of Korean street style.
There are plenty of menswear stores around shelling out the same heritage-inspired threads but Benjamin Barker is a cut above the rest. Founded locally in 2009, the concept store gets our vote for its unpretentious yet dapper collection of dress shirts, bespoke suits, custom-made leather brogues, and handsome accessories that even the ladies might be tempted by.
Faculty addresses the once dire state of menswear in Singapore – its founder Larry Peh was frustrated by his lacklustre buys over the years. The label champions functionality with impeccable craftsmanship; it’s all in the details, right down to cuffs, fabric and cut. Take the White Club Oxford shirt. It comes with a deep patch pocket to accommodate a pen and a notebook, as well as a black band at the sleeve opening to prevent stains.
