Err, thought that men are not as crazy as women when comes to shoes? :P
Usually you go in to a shop and you know what you want, unlike the women in general ;)
We do have some local designers shoes at some places like Wisma Atria or Far East Plaza in Orchard, can’t remember the name but it’s something like beattle bug or juice, sorry I don’t make an effort to remember men’s shoes :P.. But I noticed they do make nice men shoes :)
“Charles and Keith” stores is our very own designer too. They have expanded to stores to China, Malaysia, Jakarta, etc…They do have very cheap but nicely designed women shoes, but not sure about whether they make any men shoes.
Anyway, our very own main departmental stores, the very “Singapore” brands would be like CK Tangs, Metro, and Robinson(has been around for about 100yrs old) are mostly in ORCHARD area..These stores have also expanded to Malaysia and Jakarta.
Another multi-storey mall I forgot to mention is our Plaza Singapura.
Seiyu, Isetan, and Takashimaya are Japanese stores.
Me too, Mulzana, I’m not really a big fan of “suburban/heartland”-type area, but it’s more of a hassle to me since I do live in the central area :)
Attached is a recent pic I have taken 2 days ago, a view of our CK TANGSSINGAPORE in Orchard Road.
P.S. So I see that you(clyde) have just came back from the Singapore trip, so how was it like for you?? Did you get to the Little India and try our very own curry fishhead?
And the “New Urban Wear”(I think) is also our local designer, but I don’t think things are cheap in “Hareen”, Orchard ..(Hareen are known to be for rich kids shoppers) :P
Charles and Keith? I thought they have oulets in Oz too ! I have a weakness for shoes and tote actually. Adore the Project Shop . I dont really fancy buying shoes in SG tho . As for Tshirts I stick to my Guru , Nudie & H&M??:) ha ha…So, anyone fancy Bata shoes?LOL
BTW : chic&Stylish :U into digi photography?
Huh? What’s Oz?? The Wizard of Oz?? Is that a real place?? :P
Err, you are an unusual type of guy, most men don’t collect more than 5 pairs of shoes I must say..
YES, YES, The project shop is another of our proud brand ;) Their clothes are pretty stylish..and I like their cafe in their boutique too :)
Hey, nothing wrong with BATA ok..Do you know they have a very COOLBIG 3-storey store of BATA in Prague?? Geez, and yet over here in Asia is like the lowest brand or something…
Btw, good taste you have, I love Nudie and H & M too, cool Swedish brand!!
Ya, I’m very much into Photography actually, LOVETAKINGPICS..So much beauty in this world to discover!! I took some photography classes before in my uni days, but I find it easier to use my digital camera ;) (My friends all think I’m mad or something, always carrying my digital camera and taking pics :P)

Hey, Excuse me ah, Mr. high class true blue Singaporean, our public buses are high class ok, which country in the world has mobile T.V. to watch on the bus and yet only pay with that kind of unbeatable low bus fare? :D
P.S. That turkish pic you took is nice, but I was referring that if you could put up more pics on your profile like on your 43 places or 43 things/goal area…after all, this entry is about “finding shoes” in Singapore ok? ;)
