Truefitt & Hill in Singapore: The perfect special gift idea for the man in your life!

TRUEFITT_dcgWhen I read that Truefitt & Hill had ‘landed’ in Singapore I confess I got more than a tad excited. Why? Classed the “oldest barbershop in the world” by The Guinness Book of Records, the brand is associated with old-school luxury, British-style. Translation: an awesome present for my hubby! Though I pride myself on being a creative ‘gifter’, after nearly 18 years together, the selection from which to choose from to present to the love of my life has become rather ho-hum in recent years, and I am not alone in my quandary. I mean, really — all sorts of electronic gadgets, Apple products, running gear, cycling paraphernalia, ties, cufflinks, ‘experience’ certificates, leather goods; and one year, even a speedboat! Just as well longtime S’pore resident Marc Nicholson, CEO of Truefitt & Hill in Singapore, decided to bring the brand to our sunny shores! Cue happy dance!

IMG_4289Perhaps shaped by his time spent in London during his Business School days (and where he incidentally also met his Singapore-born wife Jean) Marc’s first-hand experience of traditional gentlemen’s clubs is evident as soon as you step foot into 9 Ann Siang Road and enter into a world of old school finery and quilted leather armchairs. You are welcomed into the chandelier-lit foyer, which leads into the main room where four magnificent-looking customized Collins Commander Barber Chairs hold court. The quilted upholstery with mahogany finished maple arms and footrest support looked so inviting, I wandered over. But before I could climb into the chair (in the name of research of course!), I was politely notified that unfortunately for the fairer sex, these particular chairs are strictly a male-only-domain — unless of course, I was after one of their famous “Ultimate Shaving Experiences”!

While the idea of living the life of a ‘true gentleman’ and being perfectly well-attended to by their expert barbers (who both hail from Lebanon and have over 20 years of experience EACH) was appealing, I opted to check out the spa room instead. Again, luxuriously appointed, your man of the house can opt to get his nails rescued after those grueling marathons or all that nail biting from watching cliffhanger games on the box – in the privacy of their very own ‘pod’.  Yes, this is no ordinary barbershop and feels much more like a gentlemen’s club where men can truly savour the ritual of shaving in a very masculine environment — where he can ALSO get his shirt pressed, shoes shined (complimentary!) and even freshen up in the shower room if he is on his way to meet you for a romantic dinner! What’s not to love?

IMG_4275So spoil your favorite guy by booking a “Royal Cut” and a “Traditional Hot Towel Wet Shave”, or organize a “Shave & Shape” or even a “Head Shave”. The perfect father-son bonding activity — arrange for both your ‘boys’ to get their haircut together so junior (12 years and below) can get a ‘grown up hair experience’ – old school style! Pssst! Did I mention the in-club bar? Gentlemen! Get ready to be pampered the way it should be done – Truefitt & Hill style!

Haircuts at Truefitt & Hill are $75, while Shaves are $60 and Manicures and Pedicures are $60 and $75 respectively.
