    I get my white T's from Giodarno/U2. They're pretty good value, particularly on sale.

    There are a few 'HK' brands that are nothing to write home about eg Cour Carre, Playlord. Sizes in HK can be a bit difficult - I'm fairly average UK-wise: size 9 shoes, 41R suits but this is considered pretty big in HK.

    I haven't been to Wan Chai in ages, but aren't there girls/women/boys from all over there?

    Filipinos have it rough. HK is one of the better places, though. Some who get sent to rural households in Taiwan, for example, are grossly overworked and sexually abused. ANd unlike HK, which has droves of foreign workers in which one might find help or simply community, there they are largely alone.

    apparently one of the highest numbers of filipinos migrating for work is in italy. i hope some of them will learn to make neapolitan suits and they come home and set up shop! [​IMG]

    carre cour and playlord (what a name!) are more like cheaper and smaller versions of express or br.

    and hanging out in lkf at night during world cup season, with dark beer in hand was tops, too! [​IMG]

    Whenever I look at Hong Kong and Taiwanese magazines, they always feature large ads for Filipino maid services, complete with a rather dour woman in a maid's uniform.

    from wiki:

    "An Overseas Filipino is a person of Philippine origin who lives and works outside the Philippines. The poor performance of the Philippine economy over recent decades, combined with a widespread knowledge of English, a legacy of the Philippines' position as a former United States colony, have made Filipinos one of the most internationally mobile nationalities. Often works overseas will support extended families back in the Philippines. As a result, many countries around the world have a substantial Filipino community.

    Population and Diaspora

    There are more than 8.7 million overseas Filipinos worldwide, about 10% of the total population of the Philippines. However, the number may be higher due to a large rate of illegal Filipino migrants who overstayed or carry a lapsed visa. The population could be projected to be at 11 million.

    Each year, the Philippines sends out more than a million of its nationals to work abroad. They are typically employed as doctors, accountants, housekeepers, nurses, engineers and domestic helpers.

    The Filipino diaspora is the third largest in terms of population. The Chinese is the largest, with about 35 million followed by the Indian diaspora at 22 million."

    My acquaintance who gets his shirt tailored at taipan went to SZ for a few shirts and said that the quality there is horrible....so Let me know how they turn out!
