The people behind Little Man feel it isn’t just a store, but a new way of seeing all that surrounds us. Situated in the quaint Binjai Park along Bukit Timah Road, Little Man is a well-curated store with a collection ranging from luxury clothing to art. If you are in the area, pop by to shop their wonderful collection of menswear apparel, women’s jewellery and other oddities. Their shop window display is constantly changing so even window shoppers are treated to something new every time.

Tuckshop & Sundry Supplies may be targeted at motorcycle enthusiasts, but it definitely is one of the best stores to visit if you are into denim. Carrying brands such as Iron Heart, Red Cloud & Co, Oak Street Bootmakers and eyewear from Tart Optical Enterprises, this little treasure trove is not to be missed. Their recently opened two-storied store along Bali Lane is also home to local leather artisan Obbi Good Label and their workshop. If you’re on a limited budget, you can always pick up a nice can of pomade for that slick and shiny hairstyle as a souvenir.

Swagger Store caters to men who appreciate design, craftsmanship and heritage in all the products they use.

What you will find in-store is a carefully curated selection of apparel, footwear, accessories, literature and grooming products for the modern day Renaissance man. Expect to find products from Raleigh Denim, Wood & Faulk, TURMS and Ed Et Al. A recent refresh of brands brings in their latest shoe collection from upcoming men’s shoe maker, LLYR.

Those well-versed with the local menswear scene would know that fiftyfive is one shop not to miss whenever you’re near Boat Quay. Situated along the banks of the Singapore River, the store offers products from Ed Et Al, Fox Umbrellas and glasses from Masunaga. Also present in-store will be Clinton Leicester and Matt from K by Kevin Seah, who will help with your fittings for Kevin Seah Bespoke’s made to measure line. Some might disagree with me, but I regard fiftyfive as Singapore’s answer to Hong Kong’s The Armoury.
