    I've noticed a lot more Singaporeans on our forum lately. Since there really isn't any other place where we can chat/discuss besides the 'denim in singapore' thread on SUFU, i think we should have a thread here!

    So.. along with the new layout comes a thread for Singaporeans! So where are you guys? Introductions anyone?

    I'm rotating between a pair of Grim Tim Black selvage and a pair of S710xx. Yup. I've retired a pair of my slim jims for a while since i gained a bit too much weight =s.

    i really want the Dry Bones X Sufu and also want to join the denim contest.... dunno how to raise 800 bucks in 2 months just for jeans..

    here's a cross post of some photos i took earlier in jan/feb

    ^invidious

    i think they want to appeal to like the heartlanders and mass market since its meant to be affordable and chic casual wear... so where better than to start with singapore's biggest housing area. its like the biggest hdb hub or something.

    i went down. the raw selvage jeans look really good. quite bang for your buck at 99 SGD. Nice construction, clean stitching. Pretty good for a pair of dress jeans.
    its 2.5 times cheapers than apc and 5 times cheaper than diors... so.. definitely worth it at that price point.
    i think they make really good basic. tees, polos etc... you should drop by!

    @oeija: how are their prices compared to topshop/zara (tees and polos)? i had looked inside their web and i like the look on their plain polos but not sure about the cutting/fitting. i'm looking for a similar cutting as zara basic polos. btw, since they are from japan, do their M size tops fit more like small M? since i own a MIJ FP polo and they do feel tight and don't think will buy some more although their cutting is actually great. i just feel a bit uncomfort when wearing it LOL.

    i remember saw picture of your jeans from 'jeans progress' thread, but didnt realize it was you..
    Sick Jims !
    It's rare to see someone beat up their jeans like that in Singapore, i saw alot of nudies at Orchard, but none of them beaten up..
    Mostly still fresh and raw..

    I'm aiming for uniqlo's basic tee as well, but got no chance to go there for now .. =(

    i started breaking those in around June 2007.
    it was really rare then. like nobody else had nudies and it was cool to see someone with them every once a while... now its EVERYWHERE man! but like you said its all still new and raw. A bit sian to see so many people with them at times.

    I still want 2-3 more pairs of Nudies though. Really digging the Grey Coated denims. And maybe a pair of nudies famous dry selvage japans...

    *btw those Jims were sea washed in our very own... SENTOSA

    I haven't actually gone in to try the Uniqlo stuff. i just dropped by and looked at the raw denim and t shirt designs since i was in the area.

    so.. anyone can answer Invidious's questions on the FIT and CUT of Uniqlo basics like Tees and Polos?
    I'd like to know too.

    They are opening another one in Orchard Ion if I am not wrong. Same goes for Dior Homme and a whole lot of other labels.

    Oh man, how could you guys wash your jeans in the sea of Singapore? Gosh, the water of Singapore is unlike those of other countries which is clear and reflect the sky, hence, blue. I only see shades of greena and brown here. . .
    Regarding Uniqlo, I went the first few days it opened. As read in the papers, the queue took me 20 minutes to get in. I loathe the queueing
    habit of Singaporeans but I was in Tampines, there was a new shopping centre so I decided to give it a shot and to check out the denim there. Wanted to try them out, but the queue to the dressing room is an estimated 30 minutes long by the sales personnel. So, guess next time.
    Anyway, nice thread, subscribed.

    invidious:
    The Fred Perry polo t-shirts that are made in Japan runs a little smaller and tight fitted than others. I am kind of worried about the sizing from Uniqlo too as my clothing from Japan normally runs smaller and tighter than others that are made that size. I really like plain basic t-shirts. U sually get them from Topman as they have several locations and they always stock up on them. I like t-shirts from Zara but those that I like normally ran out of my size. I went Uniqlo and saw some that I like, if my memory serves me right they were pretty cheap compared to the other 2 brands that I mentioned too.

    @xxhalcyonxx
    there's no more queues at uniqlo now. it's still got a high volume of customers but you no longer have to queue. and yes there's going to be one at ION orchard.Sizing wise, Uniqlo fits smaller than all the other AngMoh brands. About a size smaller. So a typical European M is about a large there. Basically up a size

    anyway. Addressing my fellow, South East Asians, who's up for the Denime 66xx contest!!

    btw, the sea wash here, works pretty well. My jims really turned out very nicely if you refer to the grim tim dry black selvage or gallery to have a look at them.

    Come come all ye Malaysians, Singaporeans and South East asians... join the thread! haha
