I was told about a Fashion warehouse place called D'Brasco by another JC member and thought I would check it out for myself. It's located just before CITOS and is well sign-posted, so you wont miss it.

This place is big (three floors) and has clothes for Men, Women and Children. Also has some baby stuff (cots, playpens etc). I big range of guys stuff available and I am pleased to report they also carry stock above the usual 34 waist and M sized shirts!

Prices are very cheap when you look at the brand names you are getting (Paul Smith, Hugo Boss, Old Navy etc). I picked up a Paul Smith shirt for about Rp.120.000, Shorts around Rp. 80.000

My advice would be to go down and check it out as its the best I have found in Jakarta

D'Brasco before CITOS. CITOS = Cilandak Town Square. South Jakarta. After Pondok Indah/Fatmawati. On Jalan Simatupang.

My advice is you'll find much cheaper stuff, including padded bras, in Ramayana dibawah terminal bis Blok M. And then it's just a short walk upstairs to Palatehan.

Thx Kenyeung. Does Palatehan also carry branded (and affordable) goods?

depends what size you are pisang -- kenny is a skinny bastard and doesnt have an issue with waist sizes .. although I am sure he has issues with length (but thats something for roys hair to go in to later). Debrasco is good for branded stuff at cheap prices and they also have a selection of clothes for those over a 34 inch waist.

Kenny is right though Palatehan has some very affordable goods. But be warned there are usually hidden costs associated

Oh yes, some are still quite small, but others are stretched all out of shape because of too much use.

Perhaps the "biru" is a reference to "blue veins" as in "blue-veined custard chucker".

Could be RH, and just to humour you, let's agree with you. You and Kenny start getting strange when you talk about clotting your respective sporans.

Ngandan-andan sounds pretty strange to me, like something a filly would say with a mouth full of banana.

Ha, ha. What funny blokes. Well now I realise it is best that I avoid Palatehan since I already have an apartment and there's no need for coats in the tropics (unless you go to Tabac).

BTW, sorry I have to break this to you mates, but I don't come with a yoghurt rifle...

Is D'Brasco cheaper than Mangga Dua! I wish I could go to Jakarta but Bali's clothings are good design as well eventought now more expensive than it used to be.
