Banana Republic Opens MBS Boutique

The buzz: For too long guys here have been denied access to American brand Banana Republic’s range of quality staples. No more. This latest store stocks some highly sought-after menswear pieces, as well as womenswear, accessories and jewelry.

The vibe: The 4,500 sq. ft. space allows fashionistas to troll through its collection rather comfortably—the cream-colored marble floor, rich wood panels and contemporary lighting also add a home-like feel to the place.

The goods: While the girls can revel in the typically modern yet classic skirts, dresses and wool jackets; the guys have more to write home about. Tailored corduroy two-button blazers ($300 upwards) will set them straight for both work and play, while more affordably-priced casual wear like woolen v-neck sweaters ($90 upwards) are daily essentials that are as timeless as they are chic.

Why you’ll be back: Because you’re too classy for GAP. And because you can finally have some of what the girlfriend’s having.

#B2-28 The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, 2 Bayfront Ave., 6334-7224. Open Sun-Thu 10am-11pm; Fri-Sat 10am-midnight.
