Well, most of you have begun to use it as a gateway between 313@Somerset and Orchard Central since it opened several months ago (hallelujah). But what many of you might not realise is that while the link is aptly named orchardgateway, it serves a bigger purpose than merely bridging two malls. Stacked at six storeys high and two storeys into the basement, orchardgateway offers quite a selection in terms of fashion, grooming and culinary establishments.

High-street fashion from Aape by A Bathing Ape

International high-street, mixed-label and indie boutiques take up most of the tenant space with gastronomical pickings coming at a close second. Basement One plays host to a series fashion boutiques such as i.t’s flagship store, fingercroxx and Aape by A Bathing Ape. And understanding the importance of catering to the well-dressed urban male, orchardgateway has the entire of the fourth floor (The Men’s Zone) dedicated to the lads.

Super sunnies available at dh.sunglass

We also discovered Italian label Tocco Toscano’s gentleman arm hawking leather briefcases, laptop bags and wallets for the urban male on the go. Also setting up shop at orchardgateway is dh.sunglass which was originally at Haji Lane. A bigger space meant a wider range and the selection at dh.sunglass did not disappoint, with from brands that include House of Holland, Subcrew and Ksubi.
When you’re feeling weary from a long day of shopping, we recommend that you gents head to the Premium Barbers in The Men’s Zone for a proper grooming, spa or pick-me-up fix. A bar is located within the vicinity and is well-stocked with ice cold beers, full-bodied wines as well as cocktails for those to prefer to wind-down with alcohol instead of a massage. No judgement here.
