The online multi-label retailer of men's accessories has recently opened its first brick-and-mortar boutique. Kelvin Cheong, the man behind the four year-old business, is a self-professed Anglophile. The craft brands that onlyBrown carries (Ettinger and Rutherfords to name but a few) all hail from the United Kingdom — until now.
Along with the opening of its first store, onlyBrown has expanded its portfolio to include hand-rolled pocket squares of Neapolitan tradition from Passaggio Cravatte, and woven Panama hats from Ecuador. Handsome coin pouches from Munekawa Japan and card cases from Cherchbi also join their mainstay of leather accessories that includes an impressive array of belts, briefcases and wallets. As Cheong emphasises, "onlyBrown honours provenance and traditional craftsmanship regardless of the brand's origins."
As it is, the space is a gentlemen's haven through and through. But there's more to come with bespoke services in the pipeline. Drop by for finely crafted accessories (right down to the shoehorns) and a good ol' yarn with shop owner Cheong for the full onlyBrown experience.
onlyBrown is located at 5 Everton Park, #01-22. To shop online, click here.
