post #46801 of 53794

Places to look at in Hong Kong:

 

Uniqlo - of course.

 

Boggi - in TST, some seriously nice Italian style suits in some very interesting fabrics. If a Boggi suit fit you well, it would be worth considering going with them rather than PJ as they are fantastic quality and would likely work out a bit cheaper.

 

Take 5 - Best option for denim in HK - stocking Momotaro, Samurai, Iron Heart and the Flat Head. Good to just look around as its an interesting pokey store.

 

Armoury - good for a look but as others have said its very pricey.

 

Tassels - good for a look and potentially might have some good stuff on sale, stocks C&J, Edward Green, Alden.

 

H Houses Shop - this is a very weird small shop that I stumbled upon by accident. It appears to be selling shoes from Herring Shoes in the UK, so it carries some of their range. A few Alfred Sargents, Barkers, Cheaneys and Trickers but all in small sizes (less than 9UK).

Boggi is nice and worth a visit.  Marcelo is delightful to deal with. But no way I will pay Boggi full price. HK$8000 for a sports jacket (VBC fabric, fused construction), HK$6000 on sale, compared with Euro590 full price from website, and Euro350 during sales.

How much would a PJ shoetree-bag, measured by Patrick, for my topy'd shoe tree cost?

Problem would still be there if your shoes were breathtaking.

Brisbaneites, the Libertine 50% sale starts tomorrow. Get in early and smell nicer than everyone else. Take the GF and make a real hero of yourself.

Was in their O'Connell St store a few weeks ago and they were selling Church's for $500? The Hong Kongs from memory. Loake Aldwychs for $400 IIRC.

Went online earlier today to see if I could find any Sartorial on the cheap no joy. Then thought TF Extreme, forget it too pricey for 50ml based on these two what would you recommend as a reasonably priced alternative?

Yeah for some reason unfortunately the HK pricing is much more than the European pricing.

 

Not sure what you saw that was fused? All the coats I looked at were either fully canvassed, half canvassed or fully deconstructed?

I've lost my wallet once this year and my phone twice. Got it back the first time but not the second time. Things tend to fall out of my shallow pockets. Apart from growing up and not getting lit, I was thinking of a wallet/key chain.  Thoughts on these wallet chains? Will obviously not be to everyone's tastes. I don't think I would have it hanging out so obtrusively, and dont know why it is not connected to anything in the picture. I would probably have it just straight from belt loop to pocket.

Everything I saw were fused. I even bought one of the SCs in Fratelli fabric- just checked, fused. Only exception was the suits made by Caruso.

Yeah I saw that. Not really a fan, suits that work wear aesthetic though. Or if you were legitimately going camping/hiking etc. and using it for a knife or similar.

There might actually be a bit of an issue with the loafers fit. I'll just wait to see if it can be resolved without any major changes needing to be made.

I'll be posting a full review in a little while. The workmanship is exceptional and they're surprisingly light.

Your Mrs needs a talking to Arch3r!
