Shinola – Bringing #Bikeporn to Singapore

Shinola 07

For a brand hailing all the way from Motor City Detroit, you wouldn’t expect anything less than 100% Made in America. Shinola, which is known for its watches, bicycles and leather goods, is opening their first Asian outlet in the new Robinsons Orchard at level three.

Upon receiving my first Shinola item, a leather pouch, I discovered something really unique within its pockets, a metal card plate with a code on it. Apparently it’s a unique manufacturing coding system where the goods are individually numbered, leaving each product with a unique identity. That immediately makes each item you bought from them personal and you kind of grown to it.

The most expensive items from Shinola are of course the bicycles, 100% assembled and manufactured in Detroit, with a price of $4,700 for the most expensive one. However they are the epitome of #bikeporn – all rock solid and well built.
