putting on a jacket won't even leave half an inch of cuff if any at all? also you seem to be wearing a singlet inside- is that the reason its a bit small?
so whats the difference between heavier clothes and lighter cloths? is there high inverse correlation between the weave count (Super 1*0s) and the weight of the cloth in ounces?
did you forget the shoes in HK!?>!?1

on StyleForum, where its more about how you dress, than the objective of dressing itself. i guess its important not to overdress or they'd be thinking- this entry level airhead is wearing better clothes with no brains in his head. if you underdress- you might not be right for the environment- esp banking or old school law firms (who look at pedigree) and then most importantly, is you suitability for the job.

Suit Pants that don't go down to the top of the sole/covering shoe laces? Whats the reason for those tight pants?? Who else llikes the "drop" from the broad chest to the slim waist? It definitely makes the suit wrinkle when worn... Sometimes I think if your bespoke suit is too tight, its no different from buying a size to small off the rack. Unskillful tailor? But if you're happy, then its good for you.

No real shoe factory in HK, so no one import the best glue anymore. I supply my own upper (cordovan, US), insole (UK), outsole & heel (JR,...
