As you can see in my pictures above and below here- yes the title speaks itself too, its another Factory Outlet in my town ( locally known as FO ) called Paberik Badjoe that I like to recommend to you. You might want to list it to your shopping destination next time you shop till drop in Bandung-the shopping heaven to many tourist.
Located at Jl. Sukarno Hatta No.573 Bandung (exit toll Buah Batu/ Buah Batu highway), this FO is quite far from Dago, Riau, Setiabudhi or other areas that most Shopping spot and FOS seems to be in. Should I say Pabriek Badjoe is definitely not for the faint hearted or those without the shopping stamina even so, I think Paberik Badjoe is worth a visit and you might find what you want here.
I say this FO has interesting concept.
Starting from its name which I think quite catchy.
The words: Paberik and Badjoe are an old script for Pabrik and Baju in Indonesian (Bahasa)- Pabrik Baju means Clothing Factory in English.
Old script or ejaan lama was use during the time Indonesia was a Dutch colony. At that period of time, the Latin alphabet was introduced and a number of Dutch spellings were used to write Indonesian but as part of the independence movement in 1930s, the Indonesian language was standardised and the term Bahasa Indonesia was adopted as the name of the language and the spelling of oe was changed to u in 1947. The Indonesian spelling system were introduced officially in 1972 with all other major changing as explained here.
On the other hand, I don't think the owner of this FOS use the words to name the store without reason coz this FO is literally has their own clothing factory located just behind the store.
The factory, for many many years have been well know for their famous export oriented brands but has local market too like WRANGLER (Jeans) WOOD, JOCKEY, COLOR BOX , LEE, TIRA , ET CETERA and of course THE EXECUTIVE ( working wear ), which I fan!
My impression when I first entered the store was that this store looks o...kay. I consider myself as visual, I really care to what I see and the interior of the building is much like a warehouse to me but its clean and the changing room are big , there's pictures of old Bandung hanging on the wall and an antique car surrounded by mannequins. Inside the store, theres a small cafe also and if you brings kids, they can play at the kids zone they provided. I wish they have more plants around the store area, I like when the place is green with lots of trees and plants, its much cozy.
Anyway, find Blazer, Shirt, Skirts, Blouse,Tank top, Tee shirt, Polo, Jeans, Shoes, Belt, Kids dress, Swimsuit, Jacket and more at this factory outlet - they sell them all at bargain prices!
Not only that, sometimes you come across other good garments like Quicksilver, Armani, Esprit but don't expect it all seasons and oh you should also check the items carefully before you purchase them as besides Grade A (best quality overruns) some are rejected original branded item due to the not so neat stitches, logos, buttons etc
I am sorry I cant show you any pic for those items tho- I couldn't took any pics inside the store! sorry!!!
