Hello fukers, thinking about making the journey down to singapore fancy some new shit just wondering if those with experience think it's worth it?

Also what shops are worth checking, I've heard of twentysomething or other for a small selec of DH and comme etc but would also like to know about the streetwera type shit, not only the big jap guns but anything worth a check

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help

i was in singapoor for a few weks last year and i thought the shopping was pretty good,a reasonable selection of shops,the big streetwear lables are mostly import gear but are priced at about uk retail far east plaza holds most of these resell stores ,i didnt check out many local brands my friends said alot of the quality wasnt upto much and you can pick up very simular gear in hk for cheaper.

Here's what a guy on CT recommended…

basically only 1 place to go in singapore…far east plaza shopping centre. there you have Surrender, which carries visvim/nbhd/headporter. Large (bape,BxH,nbhd,etc.)…Ambush (mhi,silas,tonite,pam,etc). u have few other resell shops there too.

there's stussy across the road from far east inside Pacific Plaza which has adidas originals too. Gallery is there which sells supreme,nike sb's.

then there's the main sneaker spot Limited Edition in Queensway shopping centre for your quickstrike,SB,etc. we do get some tier 0 stuff nowadays too…like stash af1 low n clots. LE has another branch in Heeren, where HMV is.

thats basically it i guess…not much as compared to HK me thinks. but still not too bad in terms of pricing compared to here in UK.

try bugis village, is a market with streetwears… for clubbing go to zouk, liquid room or ettica Eye-wink… thailand capital "bangkok" is good if you going for an aisa trip, loads shopping and clubs and much more cheaper…

thai kids are heavily influenced by indie scene now and they sure carry it well. thailand, bangkok do have wack colourways for vans era as well as puma clydes.
2nd vintage jeans like lvc, edwin, lee, etc are all going for cheap too Smiling

like what hermes said, high end fashion isn't exactly cheap, but the random shopping and food selection is great.

Yeah I fucking love bangkok, all the kids have ian brown hair is funny. But yeah I saw some kid wearing some nic skinny jeans asked him "where can I get?" Went to where he said but were all short as fuck like whicjh is a bastard as they fitted wicked apart from the length and were only about 4.50 gbp. Had to try on tiny size though I look awful I am the rakiest fuck been on them diet/speed pills for a month nothing I brought with me fits will need some new stuff when I come back

Alot odf them seem to imitate the jap sterretwear look too alot of fake bape and that, bit odf supreme too. Bought some of those baggy denim shorts they all wear but felt too stupid to wear them they are so baggy like I am not used to it
