A different sort of violation perhaps: Today, I saw a man in a very baggy four-button suit with only the bottom button buttoned. That's right. And it's not that strange a sight in Beijing, but what distinguished this fellow was the large "LV" messenger bag strapped over his back. Perhaps his exceedingly chunky, plastic, black shoes go without saying. Despite all of this he was in a party of men that I could tell were relatively distinguished businessmen, probably discussing which foreign insurance companies would be allowed to operate here or something. The four button bottom-buttoned-only look is surprisingly popular. I can't pretend to see why.
