If you are truly arguing this is a positive thing, you fucking suck. Nice try, kid but no. You are WAY off. You clearly don't understand even the tip of the iceberg of what I am trying to say. Tip for you: Stay in school so you can learn something else instead of ad hominem arguments.

And honestly, very few brands do. Some of these guys aren't good at business, or else they'd be business men in Wall Street, not tailors or cutters or designers or seamstresses working in artisan shops in Naples or wherever. The fact is, a lot of people based their willingness...
Hong Kong has a lot of areas to shop for brand name items: Central - Landmark Causeway Bay - Times Square Tsim Sha Tsui - Harbor City Just be aware that you might be paying equal or more than what you would pay in the US. If you're looking for knock offs, make sure you ask for "A" quality fakes. They actually rank how good their counterfeit wares are.

It would be awesome if there was a guy who was size 36r but has a 34 waist.
It seems like shoes to women are like boobs to guys. Generally, there's a minimal acceptable range that no one really pays too much attention to. But if they're nice, then obviously they get extra attention. If they're messed up, peace.

Most people here don't pay retail for their clothes and that's hardly a fault, nor does that make them posers Let me be clear: buying discounted clothing is SMART, don't get me wrong. However, if you have to save money for an item of street wear clothing that is ON SALE, it...
Quote: Originally Posted by Prince of Paisley I do it for the economy. Sure I don't need more, but someone needs to keep those designers and artisans employed, or we'll lose them forever. My motives for buying new clobber are purely altruistic. It might sound like a joke to some but I actually feel the exact same way. All these other companies doing shortcuts are getting all the cash and it's hard to reward the folks that put the time and...
