I don't own anything made by Zara, but have been in the store often enough with women who can't get enough of the brand. Compared to MD I found the quality of Zara's textiles to be lower, the construction inferior, and the style to be a bit more forward. You may know that both brands are owned by Inditex, so the sizing may be similar. MD's slim fit is quite good on me, and if I purchase a regular-fit shirt I get it darted. HE Mango has an "Asian fit" (I live in Asia) that...
Massimo Dutti. But hold your horses for a bit; given what you've budgeted you could certainly buy something better (both OTR and MTM) from any of the many fine sellers (and forum sponsors) here at SF. You ought to check them out.
Brilliant match! Pity those last few opportunities weren't converted. Could have ended 8-2.
I like your curiosity. In Korea it's illegal for foreign men to photograph local women on the beach, http://www.rjkoehler.com/2013/07/30/foreigners-gone-wild-2013/ , http://koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/nation/2013/07/113_139926.html . Local blokes can photograph foreign women as they please, of course. When I lived in the Gulf I was advised to never "harass" a Muslim woman, such as stare, photograph, etc. Anywhere.
It's in anticipation of all the photos of Thai birds you'll be posting in the Asian girls appreciation thread. Don't let us down, m8.
The baht is approx. 32 to the U$, so 25000 baht is approx. U$770 today. For bespoke suits I would urge extreme caution. Most of the tailors target gullible tourists, people who know little if anything about the process, who are in town for a very short time. Their selling point is rapid completion. You're going to be there a year so take your time and talk to people who live there who've had suits made. Unless you have a job that requires you wear a suit in Bangkok...
Viapiana - Custom, hand-made denim. http://www.viapiana.ca.
I realize this question was asked quite a while ago. I've had jeans altered at Defacto Denim in the Mile Long Building on Amorsolo St corner of Ruffino in Makati; I was a customer for shirts there so had built up a bit of a relationship with Andre and Nicole before asking for jeans alternations. They have a chain stitch machine too - not on site - if you're particular about such things.I'll add that Andre and Nicole are wonderful kids who will put forth a great effort to...
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. ...
