Guys and gals shop differently – whereas women happily make a hobby of it, wandering from store to store, men generally prefer a more surgical strike. All hail, then, the super-convenient one-stop shop, where fellas can be fitted out with all their sartorial needs.

Swish new multi-label menswear concept Pur.Suit is just the ticket, based in Bangkok’s relaunched Siam Discovery mall. A more sophisticated statement from the team that brought you Gin & Milk (which gathered top designer threads together under one roof), it’s a haven of formal and semi-formal attire that won’t make your wallet wince.

Expect slick shirts, tees, suits and accessories from cool brands including Mister Painkiller, Greyhound, online basics’ go-to Wardrobe Ministry, P.Mith, and Vvon Sugunnasil (ready-to-wear shirts from a trusted tailor). You can also snap up preppy pocket squares in silky stripes, dots and geometrics from Byston, and handcrafted bowties and decorative lapel pins from Rams for a touch of flair. Pryn Parfum scents, cufflinks and bags complete the offering, served up in a luxuriously appointed, neutral-hued space.

Top picks include retro T-shirts from Wardrobe Ministry, black-and-white jumpers by Greyhound Original and lightweight, beige ‘Studio’ jackets and trousers by Mister Painkiller. Match your sharp new look with a razor-sharp shave or classic cut at the latest branch of Barberford, just next door. Whether you’re off to a power meeting or a red-hot date, they’ll ensure you scrub up well…
