Retail recommendations

Postby banana » Mon, 17 Oct 2005 10:43 pm

Ok, I suspect the Beauty, Health and Boobjobs section might be more appropriate but what the heck.

Can anyone recommend places to purchase slim fit shirts? I used to own a nice white one from Matinique but seems they are now defunct. Revamping my wardrobe is much cheaper than gym membership when it involves a single piece.

If it wasn't you, I would have thought it was a joke.

Custom made? A bit more expensive but what a great fit.

Isn't everything in Singapore slim fit??
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

KT, you made that typo on purpose! :lol:

banana, there're so many brands that do slim-fit shirts, I'm surprised you haven't been able to find one.

Polo Ralph Lauren at Paragon, specifically the "fitted shirts" range (everything else is almost baggy!)

When it comes to you banana, i d say you can get a slim fit shirt at any pharmacy , supermart or 7-11 , its usually near the cashier.... however my guess is its hard to get a white in the slim fit range .. usually pink... anyway again this would be specific to you Banana :wink: .... Shirts for the rest ... better idea to try Mr V' recommendation.

Slim fit shirts, good materials, nice designs and good price / quality ratio: Wisma Atria basement has a shop called Project Shop.

Branded stuff for more money: Hugo Boss, Armani at Takashimaya.

KT, that same typo has been on my mind since the first time I saw her handle. Very naughty of me I suppose but I do wonder what she/it looks like.

It looks like a flat-chested mannequin. A stick insect. A pair of walking chopsticks. Boy, isn't she just hot? :lol:
