Thanks for the replies, guys. Fishball, do you know where I can get 'Bar Keepers Friend' in Hong Kong? I will be down next week.
I unfortunately got some rust staining on the sleeve of my favourite striped linen shirt. I have soaked it in detergent and warm water for 48 hours, but the stain hasn't lifted.

Just had barbecued oysters on the half shell with chilli and garlic from a Xinjiang cafe in Guangzhou. 30 eurocents each. And fucking amazing!

In my original post I did say I was after a pair of brogues, but on checking out the quality of the punching, I was not so sure, so in the end picked the monk. I spied a set of Dainite soles and I thought my luck was in, as the rainy season is apparently about to start here, but,...
Heading to Zee's on saturday after picking up my, hopefully, finished suit from Chan's. I am having the 'cloth shoe' fitting first, then I get to pick and play with the 'French calf' leathers. Looking forward to it. I saw a pair of Dainite soles on a readily accessible shelf, and am thinking possibly of a pair of brogues for my first pair. On the other hand, a pair of wholecuts with discrete brogueing on the cap have also piqued my interest. Any helpful suggestions? Zee's...
