But that said, given how 80% of his clients are expats (who presumably don't frequent that forum since they don't speak or write Mandarin), there might be more people willing to buy from a Shanghai/Beijing branch.
The Alfred Dunhill House in Shanghai for instance, is very tastefully done and was decently crowded when I went last year. Granted, Dunhill is a much more famous brand than RJ or Liverano, but I think it's less bling-bling and more sophisticated than Gucci or LV (in its monogrammed form anyway).
