Bump!
What are shoe prices like in Hong Kong? In Japan, a pair of Alden cordovan blutchers is like 1300 USD (recently its especially high, considering the exchange rate). In the States, the same pair of shoes is about $600. I'll buy my first pair of Aldens eventually, and if the price is reasonable in HK I'll buy a pair when I'm there next month. Thanks for any input!
Hey just bumpin' an old thread on this topic, so I don't have to start my own. What are shoe prices like in Hong Kong?

I am interested in buying some loafers, and I occasionally read about "lined" or "unlined" loafers. What is the difference and how does it matter? Is this just a matter of comfort? Tradition? Thanks.
Would it be so bad to wear a white linen pocket square with just the edge the same color as the tie?
+1 to this. You can buy something fun or creative or trendy if your want to and sometimes that's a good choice, but the guiding, general principle is well stated above.Also FWIW, I think a lot of the "nicest" shoes posted on the Shoe Porn thread are way too pointy... It could be fashion, it could be because most men get fatter as they get older and look better in a thinner shoe, or I could be off-base, I don't know.
Is this Dan's member name? If so, GREAT post with Nick Wooster today. Good luck with the new line.
When I roll up my sleeves, I button the collar just like I would do normally. I would find it strange (and artificial?) if someone unbuttoned their collar for a day when they rolled up their sleeves.
It has been steadily improving. I like it a lot better than now than several days ago.
