Winter temperatures vary in different countries, what kind of winter wear are you looking for?
Personally, I do not recommend getting sub-zero winter wear in SG.

Don't get those big fluffy ones from OG or 'winning' or those winter wear shops in Singapore. Those are soooo ugly... Go Zara and pick up those more fashionable (and obviously much nicer) ones! I got myself a leather jacket to go Perth during early spring last year, and despite being thin, it kept me warm even from strong wind at lighthouse and cold temp around 10deg. Remember it's not the fluffiness or thickness. It's about the right combination of layers you wear.

So what kind of layering combination/material is recommended?

initially i wasn't keen in getting a such jackets from zara since they cost a bomb.. i went over to the OEE store in chinatown and my word... their jackets cost as much as those in zara!! with ugly china labelling. after this visit, everything else seems cheap to me since ugly ones cost $199 onwards. crazy!

anyway, Giodano's selling this thick jacket for $59 each if u get 2, normal price is $79. the salesgirl was telling me how good it is.. u guys can check it out.

i just bought a polyester jacket for $55 at winter essentials at the central.. apparently suitable for 0 deg to 10 deg as third layer. worth taking a look i guess?

get a sports thermal as your base. These are the ones used by footballer playing at 2 degree celsius temp.

Next get a sweater then an overcoat.

Laying like this is better. Gloves and scarf are good to have as well.

currently got heattech sales at uniqlo.. at 5-10deg you don't really need much preparation.. and ur polyester jackets will do just fine, if u scared cold, then get innerwear like heattech, if not, u're good to go
