Farewell, Lau Pa Sat!


Dear friends and customers,

On 1 September 2013, Lau Pa Sat @ Raffles Quay will undergo extensive renovations. As such, Dylan & Son will cease all operations by the end of August '13. We will be re-locating, most likely to a second floor shophouse unit along Telok Ayer Street (about 5 minutes' walk away). The targeted reopening date would be in November '13. 

Lau Pa Sat @ Raffles Quay has been the place I called home for the past three years. Prior to Dylan & Son's establishment in 2010, my father Peter had been a tenant here for over six years under the company name Oriental Tailor. It is therefore not an exaggeration to say that this place holds quite a bit of memories for both me and my father.



Yes, the place was old, crowded and noisy. On some days, you might have the smell of salted fish drifting through my glass doors into the shop. Heck, you can even hear the feet of scurrying rats on top of the shop roof at night. I kid you not.

However, Lau Pa Sat did provide me with crucial customer exposure when I first established the company. Located in front of a major cross-junction, the shopfront was highly visible to the massive lunch crowd and drivers along the road. Slowly, curious passer-bys eventually became our customers. 

Just like an old couple who had lived together for ages, I have learnt to tolerate the bad and appreciate the good with Lau Pa Sat. And now, the time has come for us to say goodbye to this old partner of ours.



We would also like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to our valued customers. Thank you for your continuous support over the years and we look forward to serving you in our new and bigger shop space in November 2013.

- Dylan

Surfin' Safari

The iconic safari jacket has been around for ages. If you were to rummage through your grandpa's yellowed photo albums, chances are that you'll find him wearing one of some sort. Usually seen in either grey or khaki, the safari jacket exudes a sense of adventure and masculinity.

However, this ubiquitous outerwear with the iconic four patched-on pockets has all but disappeared amidst our urban landscape. As a tribute to one of the most enduring outerwear styles in menswear history, we have come up with our own contemporary, lightweight interpretation.


100% linen Safari Overshirt in navy with "crowfeet" hand-stitched brown horn buttons.

The Dylan & Son. Safari Overshirt is made of 100% pure summer linen, with corozo or natural horn buttons sewn on by hand. Besides linens, oxfords will work well too. As the name suggests, it is cut like an untucked shirt, is completely unlined and ideally layered over a button-down oxford or a beat-up henley.

Starts from $350.
