No, I haven't. But $50 for a spare pair is a good deal. Since pants tend to wrinkle and soil more than the jacket it seems like a practical idea to purchase a second pair. When you dry clean the suit make sure to include the second pair of pants so that any colour change that may happen will be uniform with all the garments.
Since I've been living in Manila it's been my go-to store for shirts and pants mainly due to the lack of a better choice; the shoes are dreadful, but fortunately I was already well covered in that department. Their slim cut clothes are done well enough. MD uses a few more fashion-forward gimmicks than RL, such as coloured stitching for buttonholes, elbow patches, etc. The garments are better quality than Zara, Banana Republic and HE Mango that are priced a little lower. ...
Okie dokie, I just finished 20 glorious months in Manila. Shopping here is poor, but it isn't very dreadful. Here's a list of shops that I found.

Cutting off the garish Steve Mcqueen-inspired patch improved its look significantly. Howard Yount light tan suede double monk. A...
If possible more pics please. Thanks and a Merry Christmas to you.
Christopher Forbes will ship your parcel via Royal Mail; just let Alastair know prior to placing your order. Royal Mail is a bit more expensive than the private carriers, and it has a weight limit of 2 kilos which limits you to one pair per parcel. This can certainly add up if you're buying two or more pairs as the private carriers, which don't impose such a ridiculously light limit, will charge much less for one parcel containing more than one pair.Keep in mind that in...
Inspiration comes from Pieter Hugo's pictorial of Nigeria's Hyena Men. I'd like to see a movie of Hyena Men v Armed Albinos. Or Hyena Men v missionaries. Or Hyena Men v Lebanese conflict diamond traders. http://sobadsogood.com/2012/05/24/a-fascinating-look-at-the-hyena-men-of-nigeria-by-photographer-pieter-hugo/ I don't have any others yet. Of course a movie about Triads in Hong Kong's infamous (and long gone) Walled City would be interesting. Perhaps it's already...
