Especially when you know that half of them don't have underwear under that fashionable clothing. ;)

Well-dresed? Fashionable?

Though there are exceptions, not there yet.

Brah, you will have to forgive Raj. Remember where he's from. The country that thinks 40 year old flared men's slacks are still in style, for Dog's sake! What would he know from fashion! :lol: :P

The CBD does have its fair share of well dressed western women. There are some attractive Asian women too you cannot deny that.

I'm sure there are though I don't recall any.

There are. Too often when they are it kinda gets eradicated with the clown walk. I can't help but think of Ronald McDonald when I see that.

As I said there are exceptions, there are one or two a day that have me doing double takes.

In Japan I had to control myself from double takes avery 5-10 minutes or 100 yards. Unfair comparison?

It's getting better here compared with when I arrived. Hopefully it does in fact get to the point of 'fair share'.

Many SGn girls wouldn't know how to dress and comport themselves if it bit them, and offered them a 10c coupon off a curry-puff at the same time.

Ginza (Tokyo). Weekend. Shopping.

All the very high-end JNese young ladies (usually) chaperoned by their mothers. Now that was some classy eye-candy!


p.s. Classy in that not only do they look great, dress great, but they could probably recite Shakespeare in bed before and after bouts of selfless shakuhachi ('playing the flute').

You should have been here in the early 80's when I got here. They couldn't dress nor dance. Still cannot do either but at least the wooden dancing looks like they actually have a couple joints now, but still iffy at best.

Back then the only "girls" with any dress sense were the TVs @ Bugis. Now they are on par with the local girls, in a much as neither have any dress sense. Brah, you are so correct as regards their 'gait' for lack of a more descriptive word.
