It must have over 400 wearings now and doesn't seem any worse for wear.
Seeking opinions: If you want to work in, let's say, Hong Kong, do you go to a local school for an MBA or Masters of Finance or do you go to LSE and get a masters of accounting/finance?

I also don't believe that you have to be an athlete to...
