If you cheap out on winter clothes, you'll get what you pay for, generally speaking. Maybe you should look online? When my hubby went on a snowboarding vacation last winter we looked all over the island for appropriate seasonal wear (the snowboarding clothes he rented at the resort) and found nothing even close to right. Fashionable-yes, warm-definitely not. How much time will you be spending outside?foxhana wrote:I'm going for a holiday in Japan soon and i need some winter clothes for below zero degrees celsius. There seemed to be not much choices here in Singapore. Any places where I can find mroe varieties of winter clothes?
Also planning to go across the borders to JB/KL for some cheaper winter clothes. Any idea how much they costs there? Perhaps if it is around 40-50% cheaper I'll go there.
I wouldn't recommend that. Winter clothes (like other specialised clothes range) are one of those stuff that would not justify you crossing over the border for.foxhana wrote: Also planning to go across the borders to JB/KL for some cheaper winter clothes.

LOL reminds me of my father who is the frugal sort, he was shocked and a bit angry when he found the price mum and I paid for our sorel winter boots. He came back proud as a peacock he found an identical looking pair for 1/4 of the price. 45mins into our walk in deep snow we had to almost carry him back, his foot was soaked and almost frost bitten ours was bone dry and toasty. He then quietly went out and bought a pair of sorels.the lynx wrote:foxhana wrote:...
Don't bother trying to buy fakes from JB or KL either. Yeah I know it may even cost around MYR200 plus. You may not see/feel the difference now but wait till you use it there and you'll be begging for more layers over what you're wearing. I've heard way too much of such encounters.
