    coldeyedpugilist, can't say im too knowledgeable with the units, never took part in any of that BMT. straight up admin from the get-go. singapores been fun in some ways, not so in others but thats how things are i guess.

    i've not really explored this whole place apart from the 'yohji' thread and a coule pages of the the waywt thread but someone enlighten me on the general audience of the styleforum, if this isnt the wrong place to ask.

    Hi Michael,

    Sadly the $39.95 sale prices have ended but there are still quite a few old season stock on there for $59.95 and you can get an extra 10% off with the Styleforum discount code SF10 if that helps at all.

    Cheers

    They're looking good, Romp.

    I particularly like the last colour. I'm seeing a stripe polo, chino shorts, those driving loafers, sun and riesling. Lots of riesling. I can only see riesling now. :D

    xCrunchx, I'm into SW&D also - I think many guys here are, just to varying degrees.

    I'm all about SW&D on the weekends.

    Romp, have you had much stretching in the drivers so far? My tods have gone out a full size now.

    Separate note - anyone have sizing experience with Swims? http://swims.com/

    No idea on the SWIMS, but I am watching this thread (well, I'm watching it anyway!) to find out. Headed over to merry old London town then up into inverness for Xmas, so sizing/quality advice on their overshoes would be brilliant.

    I'm not going to be hunting the lochness in oxfords, but yaknow ....

    I went to school in Singapore and lived there for a total of 11 years (7 in one stint and 4 in another) so I know it fairly well. Knowing what I know now, I'd check out Vanda Fine Clothing for ties and accessories and Ed Et Al for some nice shoes. Interesting satorial stuff coming out of Singapore right now.

    Uniqlo and Muji would be other stops as well apart from the carrot cake and oyster omelette in Marine Parade and chicken rice and bak kut teh in Balestier Rd [​IMG]

    Don't P. Johnson stock the loafer version of Swims?

    Personally speaking, they don't appeal to me - they strike me as looking rather like upmarket Crocs.

    Wish I could get to the MJ Bale Laneway Event - looks like there are some good bargains to be found. I like how they are calling what are essentially unsold clothes from past seasons "vintage stock". At least they know their market haha.
