    Do Aussies get all razzle dazzle when they see an Asian who can speak English with an Aussie accent?! Well, that's pretty much what is going on in S.Korea. I am just embarrassed.

    Well, I suppose that it's a hybrid/adaptation.

    The sleeves could always be rolled up a bit to shorten them. You're right when you say that traditional noragi sleeves are shorter, and they are also traditionally cut without cuffs on the sleeves.

    If someone's going to wear an "aizome" (indigo-dyed) noragi, then perhaps they should go the whole hog and wear a pair of jika-tabi with their pants tucked in to them for the ultimate streetwear outfit! [​IMG]

    Well, no, but that's because we have so many 2nd and 3rd (or more) generation Asian-Australians who were born here. Ocker Asians are not exactly unusual around here, the novelty factor isn't there. I think we get all razzle dazzle about novelties as much as the next country, though.

    No - we have a lot of ABCs, ABVs and others who can speak just as badly as the rest of us. Its no novelty. My daughter lives in Taiwan, is secretary of the local Toastmasters, (Not Tao Masters!), to improve her Mandarin public speaking skills. She often gets invited by other Toastmasters clubs to assist/judge their english public speaking. Often pandemonium with laughter and slapping table breaks out when she speaks mandarin like a local. Naturally she can bring them back in line swiftly in Mandarin. Apparently many haven't seen a big nose up close chairing a meeting in mandarin.

    Ditto - I entirely agree that a celebratory purchase is in order!

    oooh ahh - hope it went ok. Very bad luck.

    Thanks, gentlemen. Yes, pure stroke of bad luck. Very lucky to have had surgery asap at St Vincents. I am now a firm believer that their nursing staff are miles ahead of other public and private hospitals I have been to. The surgeons are good as well. ; p

    If I pass wind tonight, I will be very very happy.

    Cheers. Not mine unfortunately. It belongs to the gentleman who commissioned those Luxire safari jackets. Cruz Azal? I have only one watch - IWC mark XVI.

    Not a bad choice at all, if you were to only have one watch.

    That jacket is very cool. You'd have to rock a bit of a 70s vibe though...

    On this - these shackets (or whatever you cool kids are calling them these days) - the AC store in HK had one on a mannequin.

    Is the link. File is large though. I need to compress pictures and post reviews.

    AC shirts arrive tomorrow. Can't wait!

    LOL!

    Nearly had a heart attack. There are some incriminating photos in that album!

    Thats from the ground floor of the Peninsula, in Hong Kong, where Ascot Chang have a showroom. Lovely stuff. Real ballers stay here. Ones with actual butlers.

    Try that instead.
