Ladies, step aside. It’s time for the men to shine. With an array of men’s fashion boutiques sprouting across the city, it comes as no surprise that men’s fashion in Singapore has tremendously evolved over the years. The days of the modest T-shirt-and-jeans combo are long gone. From luxurious dapper suits to bold street style, men’s fashion labels in Singapore have, without a doubt, made a mark in the industry. As we always do at Travelshopa, we’ve sifted out these boutiques that celebrate the diversity in men’s fashion. (We’ve even included a couple of men’s shoes and accessory shops for a complete look!) Listen up gents, this one’s for you.
Dapper style for all occasions
Available at various stores.
It’s highly unlikely that you haven’t heard of this label. One of the more sought-after menswear brands in Singapore is Benjamin Barker, a paradise for the dapper gentleman. This lifestyle store focuses on fit, construction and form, and apparel that speaks style. Suits from Benjamin Barker are made with different fabrics, each with a modern take on the classic suit. Tour the store if you wish to mix things up a little whilst maintaining a prim and polished facade.
Premier retailer of fine cufflinks
Touted as Singapore’s premier retailer of fine cufflinks, this place is a one-stop destination for every type of cufflinks you can imagine. Their curated range is regularly updated with popular designs with a distinct theme. From ornamental to functional, you won’t find a stellar mix of sleek cufflinks elsewhere. A great gift for the discerning gentleman.
Flamboyant prints and patterns
As much we adore a classic tux, adding some spunk to it would do you no harm. DEBONEIRE (constructed from De Bon Eire, a nod to the French meaning, ‘of good lineage’.) offers clothing with immaculate fit, in one-of-a-kind fabrics and stunning prints. Expect to see blazers in flamboyant prints and patterns, sleek suedes and rich velvets. Notable pieces include the likes of the Lace Applique Velvet Jacket, Micro-Jacquard Tuxedo, and Paisley Jacquard Tuxedo Jacket.
Apparel for the weekend
Established in 2009, this high street men’s apparel label is perfect for the working class who love to let their hair down every now and then. Drawing influences from current fashion trends and street design inspiration, edit. deconstructs everyday wear into modish apparel. Be prepared to upgrade your wardrobe with a varied range of coloured and quirky bottoms, printed tops and casual tees for the weekend.

Minimalist designs that pack a punch
