Forget having breakfast at Tiffany’s. Kicking back and chilling over a cup of joe while browsing through an eclectic collection of dapper suits and beautifully textured fabrics at the Benjamin Barker Flagship Store & Café is the perfect way to spend an afternoon.
Benjamin Barker Marks Flagship Opening with a New Look
Benjamin Barker just recently launched its two-storey flagship store in Cineleisure that bucks the homogeneity of mainstream retail to provide an intuitive, one-of-a-kind shopping experience. Customers are welcomed as house-guests and encouraged to explore the collection, tailored ensembles and accessories in an exceptionally tasteful store to build their suited good looks. Bespoke tailoring is available in-store for men and women.
The Benjamin Barker flagship store, pays homage to the quintessential man in a suit. Strategically poised against the signature cool blue of the brand, an interior palette of oak, cement and brass accents immediately stand out to start a conversation about the Benjamin Barker man’s modernist slant amidst old-world sensibilities. The store, a tactile coming together of space and aesthetic, speaks of his distinctive point of view when it comes to style and living – just the sort of man you would trust to make you look and feel tip-top.
The store is designed to enchant guests into the illusion of sauntering through their very own (and exceptionally grand) walk-in wardrobe where they are encouraged to mix-and-match and try on pieces from the fitting array of sartorial elegance before their eyes. Be it something from Benjamin Barker’s tasteful collection, to ensembles tailored in their internationally-sourced fabrics, or even picks from their thoughtful accessories – guests of Benjamin Barker are welcome to build their personal rendition of suited good looks.
With an emphasis on design, fit, construction and form, the impeccable service and tailoring finesse that come along with the shopping experience, all stack up to an unmistakable gesture of earnest hospitality from the Benjamin Barker man.
Benjamin Barker Café – The Lifestyle Arm Of The Benjamin Barker Man
Travel adventures, like recollected memories, are a deep well of inspiration. If the retail experience at level two brings to life the debonair flair of the Benjamin Barker man, the café on the ground level is a tip of the hat to the soul of the man himself.
Amble down the central stairway as you would down memory lane, and you will see the 60-seater café sprawled out beneath you like an expansive atlas rolled out. The two-storied wall adorned with quirky knick-knacks, vinyl records and music posters – even post-war fixtures, all hint to the distant lands the Benjamin Barker man has explored, like red push pins on maps mark places visited. At the Café, expect only good coffee (from Papa Palheta, no less!), or unwind over an refreshingly effervescent pint of beer while partaking in sophisticated culinary offerings such as Southern Fried Chicken, Truffle Carbonara and Crab Cake Benedict.
With the ability to thread engrams of history, memory and top-notch tailoring craft with contemporary lifestyle, Benjamin Barker welcomes you to its definitive flagship experience, with good cheer and effortless style.
