Weekend Retail Therapy

Great shirt from A.P.C. I'm a sucker for shirts with a contrasting collar and cuffs.

Kitsuné Maison Compilation 9. Favourite song would be "Something Good Can Work" by Two Door Cinema Club.

Loved this Fred Perry shirt because of the colourful laurel leaf logo - orange, green and purple!

Birthday Gift # 2: Tod's Nuovo Gommini Penny Driver

Since I'm turning 26 tomorrow, I decided to give myself three birthday gifts. What's the significance? I have no idea. Anyway, here's birthday gift number 2 - a pair of shoes from Tod's. I have to say, they're really comfortable and the smell of quality leather is intoxicating.

Dean and Trent 2010 Lookbook

Dean and Trent's 2010 lookbook, together with Wright Supply Co., is a collaborative effort between Cholo Dela Vega, Rick Manzano and yours truly. Enjoy! (Click on images for larger version)

"Looking and smelling good was never this easy."

"Madras was a keyword for his summer look - punctuated by the city's grays and greens."

"Summer study: Shorts, a no-nonsense shirt and attitude. Perfection."

"He was running out of time. But he still wanted to look his best."

"The metro is a crazy place. Always be prepared."

"With his eyes shielded from the sun, he knew he was ready for anything."

"He sat there and pondered, 'Where am I off to next?'"

Birthday Gift # 1: Longines Conquest

An early birthday present for myself - the Longines Conquest. I realized that I wasn't falling head over heels for the A.P.C. bag. But this watch, well, what can I say? It was love at first sight.

The Beauty of UNIS

"Inspired by and designed for the contemporary downtown man, UNIS evokes classic American sportswear. Urbane while easy, elegant without affect, Lee’s understated designs don’t ask for attention, rather they suit the man. Produced and manufactured entirely in its home of New York City, UNIS is just the result of a real relationship between designer, craftsmen, and locale."

Ralph Lauren: Classic, Timeless

Brown braided leather belt with gold buckle

Kelly green shorts

A.P.C. Shoulder Bag

Pardon me. I just noticed that this is my third A.P.C.-related post for the month. But what can I say, I really love the brand.

Order the bag from Tres Bien because they're currently offering free worldwide delivery for the whole month of May. On top of that, countries outside the EU will get an additional 20% off.

An afternoon at A.P.C.

After posting pictures of the brand new A.P.C. boutique in Singapore, I felt compelled to visit the store since I'm such a huge fan of the brand.

As soon as I stepped in the boutique, I was greeted by racks filled with a fine selection of clothing, display cases that boasted a well curated collection of accessories and elegant interiors that reflected the brand's aesthetics.

Here's a closer look at some of the items I picked up on that joyous afternoon.

A no-nonsense slim, braided leather belt. The dust bag is a nice extra touch.

A simple long sleeved shirt in a grey/blue colour. Up close, it looks like faded denim. Despite its extreme simplicity, I have to say this shirt fits like a dream.

The shirt sports a small collar which I particularly like. There's something about a smaller collar that breathes new life to something so common like a long sleeved shirt, no? Or maybe that's just me.

When you spend a certain amount, you get a free tote bag. I chose this roomy tote made from corduroy in a beautiful shade of green. Looks like I got my wish!
