The nokia of wallets
Every girl has been through the wallet phases - first the cute barbie velcro ones in primary school, then the cheap long wallets from bugis in secondary school, then the high quality wallets after. I always found long wallets quite a hassle to carry, so I was excited when I discovered the small square wallets from Fossil.
The square leather wallets fit perfectly into most of my pockets, so it is very convenient to carry it around. Despite its small appearance, the wallet can actually fit so many of my cards and notes. The quality is also superb - it has been my companion for three years already. They also come in many designs and solid colours too, if you want to keep it neat and simple.
The price is ok for a branded good, but it’s totally worth it as the quality and durability is amazing. I’ll get another Fossil wallet in a few years time, when my current one wears out.
Unique Leather Goods
When it comes to leather goods with unique modernise designs, I would always think of Fossil. Over the past 5 years, I have owned two leather purses, one watch and one pair of sunglasses. Till today, all the items are still in wearable condition. As for the leather goods, the longer you used the item the more unique the item would be. I honestly think the price is really reasonable for leather goods.
Fossil changes its design theme every few months, which makes owning a piece even more unique! As for me, I rarely change my purse and it matches everything I wear. I personally think that buying a good leather purse from Fossil saves me more money that constantly purchasing PVC purses every few months. It will even save me the trouble of transfer the items from purse to purse. I look forward to purchasing again in Fossil!
My dad bought me a fossil watch as a present a few years ago and it is still working great now. I like the way fossil watches work, where you can choose your strap design and the face design separately. In that way, the watch that you mix and match will turn out to be unique, only to your own style. The straps are mostly leather, thus are really sexy.
The person told me that I could go back and change the strap if it got worn off, but I have not tried it yet, thus am not sure if they would really changed it. But the service is pretty good, where the people are really nice and polite, catering to your needs but not being too pushy.
The price is a bit on the expensive side, where mine is around $100++. However, I think it is a good investment if you want a sexy, yet durable watch.
I bought a Fossil watch as a gift some time back. I remember the luxurious feel and look of all the watches there, and I instantly wanted one as well!
I couldn't help it! Fossil just oozes pure class with every line of products they have. Be it watches or bags (which I adore!), I find myself often getting lost in there while browsing through their products. My dad loves their range of wallets, which are made from really fine leather and which has proven to be surprisingly durable as well.
To anyone looking for a classy gift for any guys, do come here, it is definitely a well-worth gift.
A little expensive
I bought my first watch at Fossil, so there is that part of me that has a soft spot for the brand. However, after several years, I realised that there are better alternatives out there.
The prices are rather affordable, and the quality is pretty good. However, I realised that the likes of Nautica (watches) and Mulberry (bags) can be purchased for about the same price, or even lesser. In my opinion, the aforementioned brands have products that look better and last longer as well.
However, if anyone is looking for an entry-level watch, I would still strongly recommend Fossil. After all, it's safe.
Fossil makes leather sexy
Fossil is a very impressive store.
One step in and you know you're stepping into a newer realm of fashion. I am a fanatic about watches and I was not disappointed by their selection. My guy friend was looking for a wallet as a gift for a 21st birthday and while he fussed himself silly with the leather, I was admiring their timepieces.
The staff are very professional and will not approach you unless you have any queries. The whole place oozes understated class, and this is a very personal opinion, but men carry anything leather from fossil are now elevated to a new level of sexy in my head.
Fossil makes leather sexy.
Bags are nice but too expensive
I love the bags at Fossil which are usually made of durable leather and exudes a "laidback" feel. Designs are timeless especially for the men's collection. Personally I like the accessories better and I bought one of the charm bracelets for about SGD100. I also recently found out that my favourite watch brand Skagen will be under the Fossil brand.
However, Fossil bags are too expensive. I will rather spend the money,(top it up a little) on a Mulberry which has a similar laidback style and of high quality. Watches are worth it though at $100+ each and are well-known for its good quality and design.
You have to love the bags
Fossil's bags appeal to me very much, and I have to say although it might be a little on the higher end, I would still buy it because it could last me many years. The other day, I was in the outlet in Marina Bay Sands. I bought a messenger bag that can be used as a man bag too! It cost me 570 dollars but I was really impressed with the durability of the leather.
Not as heavy as I assumed it to be, the bag does not give me much worry as it is durable, and more importantly it is really sophisticated and stylish. Those are to me, the most important components in a bag. Fossil's bags also contain many compartments, including a fully wet proof one, so some need not worry putting some electronics there! Fossil is really worth the money!
Luxury watches at an affordable price
Recently, my group of friends and I happened to patron the Fossil outlet at Scotts Road. A friend of mine had once gifted me one of their watches and I was rather curious as to what its price would be. Honestly, I have little knowledge of watches and was under the impression that it would be somewhere on the high end.
I was surprised to see that they also stock handbags and wallets. All the watches have a unique design, inspired from vintage culture. The quality of the leather is top notch and the designs modern yet classic. The price range is not too high and looking at the exquisite designs, definitely worth the occasional splurge. It's like getting a timeless piece without breaking into the bank.
From the leather bags to wallets to the watches, the quality of Fossil leather sure is not compromised one bit. Fossil designs bring out a little bit of vintage in every piece of accessory, adding on some class to the dull piece of leather. What really caught my attention when I first walked into the store was the Fossil watches because it was just looked so classy yet casual.
Fossil has many classic design watches and also an array of seasonal ones. They even have a customising station where the watches can be custom made, meaning to say that the choice of watch face and leather strap and colour are all chosen, mixed and matched. Hence, adding a little more personal touch to the watch. There is even the option to add pendants on the watch which I found really amusing. The bags are made of calf leather hence it is hardy and really soft. Furthermore, it does not scratch easily and it is very versatile.
Besides the usual, there are usually seasonal designs and items like ipad covers and such. The price may be a little bit costly, however, I would think that it is worth the price because the items really last a long time and the classics are really just so lovable I would wear them everyday.
