A place for essentials
Giordano is definitely not the place to be when it comes to fashionable clothes. Hardly any of the designed t-shirts and casual wear catches the eye. But their basics are worth buying. Their jeans come in many different styles to complement each person’s body shape. Based on my encounters, the staff provide good assistance in helping you find the right pair, provided that the shop isn’t very crowded.
I find the t-shirts and camisoles are of really good quality material. I didn't even know that until I chanced upon a camisole from my closet that was so soft and comfortable. It’s brand? Giordano!
Now I have more respect for that brand. It’s a great place for basics.
Basics selling at $9.90 each, but with a minimum purchase of 6 basics!?
When talking about Giordano, I will never forget myself buying a typical, average jean from them at $69.90 a couple of years ago. As far as I'm concern, the jean appears to be too ordinary to e priced at such a price.
Times have changed. Giordano no longer charged their clothes at such high prices, but instead they seem to be working on another alternatives. They are now selling their top at a relatively affordable prices, but with a minimum requirement of 2, 3 etc pieces. I have once saw them selling basics at $9.90 per plain tee with a minimum purchase of 6 basics! I'm like, erm~okay? So that just adds up to a sum of around $60, but good thing is that you have got yourself 6 basics of the same design with different colors, congrats! Hit Like if you disagree with how Giordano works, like me, thanks!
Giordano’s clothes range caters to mostly young adults or teenagers. Personally, being quite small; too small for Giordano’s clothes sizes, I like to go Giordano Kids. If you also face the problem of not being able to find clothes of your size because you are too small, I suggest heading to Giordano Kids too. You should be able to find clothes that fit you, if you look at those that cater to older kids; 12 years and above. I bought the smallest pants I could find in Giordano a few backs, and I still can’t fit in it!
That having said, I think Giordano is known for their printed tees nowadays. In fact, I think most of the types of shirts they sell are only of a few types; polo tees, plain tees and printed tees. Personally, I don’t really like printed tees; because I find them too ordinary and plain. In addition, Giordano’s tees are not exactly very cheap either – one shirt costs about $20.
The quality of the clothes is quite good – I have two pairs of shorts from there which I have been wearing for four years (quite frequently worn!). I find Giordano’s clothes just a little over-priced and not exactly very nice – pretty ordinary. I think Giordano’s clothes are worth purchasing once in a while.
The place to buy tops and basic tees
If you're a fashionista, this place is not for you. Giordano mainly features basic tees and tank tops etc... It's much more reasonable if you buy 3-5 tees at one go. Each costs less than S$10 that way. They have frequent sales as well. I bought a slim straight cut jeans and it costs about S$20+. What's more, the quality's pretty good too.The denim material's not as thick as the other jeans that I have so I don't have to worry about perspiring during a hot sunny day.
Giordano definitely pales in comparison when it comes to their style. Fortunately, the service made up for it. When I was trying the jeans, one of the staff was really kind and thoughtful. She had the choice to tend to other customers, yet, she kept asking me whether the cut's alright or do I still need help. The fact that she actually went the extra mile deserves an applaud.
Verdict: Nothing interesting about the apparels but great service.
get your basics right
Giordano is the place to get good-quality basics for your everyday wardrobe. They are well-known for their bright coloured polo tees and tank tops which they usually sell by giving promotional offers such as discounts when you get three of a kind. They also sell jeans and khakis at affordable prices but I realise few people buy the jeans as Singaporeans are usually brand-conscious when it comes to the jeans they wear. The khakis are a wardrobe staple for those working.
It seems unreasonable to get one plain crew neck tee or tank top for the price they demand but certainly worth it when you buy three or more. Besides the basics, nothing else in Giordano is really worth buying as it is not really haute couture or even stylish.
Where to get your basics
Today I think Giordano has become a heartlander brand, now that I see the chain in a lot of the HDB shops. For good reason I believe - it has a lot of good quality clothes at very affordable prices.
The weakness of Giordano is the styles. It carries a lot of basics, but not many unique design items. That's fine by me though - that's one of my choice places to buy basic tees and pants. Their stretch cotton t-shirts are very comfortable and fit well. Same goes for their shorts. I like to buy completely plain colour shirts there, so I can stand out by wearing different accessories, instead of worrying whether someone else has the same shirt with the same print.
I personally do not shop at Giordano because I just do not like the brand and the clothes they design. It comes off as overly casual and tacky to me. Of course, there are often sales here and I do not mind getting a few of their colored tees to wear at home. Cheap and comfortable, tick. Trendy and well-fitting, cross. Do not expect trendy clothes here. Look somewhere else for that. This place is only good for staples, umbrellas and seasonal collections. I remember there was a Disney collection some time back but I did not get it as the designs did not scream unique to me.
The other concern I have is that their shirts have the Giordano logo sewn on it. I personally do not like the logo of the brand to be seen on the surface of the clothing that I am wearing, This is a personal preference and if you are ok with that then Giordano should be good for you. They sell basic cargo pants as well. Overall, not really my style (I am a 20 year-old female for reference) and I really have nothing to purchase from Giordano.
Still well known for its great quality and the colorful tee.
Giordano used to be popular among the fashion lovers; with its top T-shirt quality that is known to be 100% cotton and has cooling effect. It's colorful plain tee used to be the big hit among everyone and after that, more designs came up, such as the smiley T-shirts and the polo shirts.
Aside from tops, Giordano also offers a wide variety of pants and jeans for males and females. There is not so many choices to choose from but still, they are decent and prices reasonably.
On top of that, Giordano also provides a wide range of belts and socks; I bought a couple of these items from them and they are really durable. There are a slight wear and tear effects but that's understandable.
I would still purchase items from Giordano because they maintain a good quality over the time. Besides that, they are affordable and the plain tee is suitable for home or casual wear. Also, look out for the special promotions that they would hold very frequently. You can get a great bargain out of the sale.
