    Missus & I heading to Thailand toward the tail end of the year (November) for a wedding. This thread has been a treasure trove of travel related advice; and in that spirit, I'm very interested to hear if anyone has recommendations for Phuket. Been stalking the GST levying news for a while...

    Glad people are discovering and showing some love for Jerry, Mas & the boys. The two piece in Dugdale linen they did for you @sebastian mcfox was excellent.

    Other forumites have mentioned Limeburners in a positive light. While I can't speak to the distillery's premium prices, I will say that the sherry cask aged stuff is very very tasty. For a slightly more reasonably priced drop - specially if you're looking for a do-all whisky - I highly recommend...

    Suitsupply has a new campaign for their more premium Jort RTW collection - "Revenge of the Yuppies". Not entirely sure that I feel it's in good taste - even if admittedly ironic. Also - I asked this over at the Eidos thread but met with no comment - can anyone speak to the quality of Eidos...

    When I moved to HK last year in April I had originally intended to take umpteenth schlock-y photos at Goldfinch Restaurant; the venue achieved international prominence after featuring in "In The Mood for Love". Sadly closed now: something about various shareholder disputes and unsustainable...

    I have English wool/mohair - it's a pretty "wilful" fabric (if you catch my drift). Certainly not as wrinkle-resistant as fresco but whenever I wear it it tends to wear quite hardy whilst allowing for decent ventilation. I must emphasise that my interest in linen is more aesthetic than...

    Eidos Napoli

    Just pulled the trigger on this "casual" Eidos shirting joint over at Marcus Malmborg. Anyone have any info on what models these are?

    Self-serious classic menswear types always decree "linen?! never in the office!"; but in all seriousness, what are the chances of anyone in an Australian office noticing if you're wearing a navy linen suit? Your colleagues - I'd wager - are doubly likely not to give a toss if you're also...

    The Hong Kong Tailors Thread

    Just on the subject of Dream Bespoke, I'm doing my initial consultation with Ricky tomorrow. I've been variously told that he is flexible enough to do the southern Italian style but I'm looking forward to something with strong shoulders, nipped waist and a lengthy skirt. Will report back more...

    The Armoury - Official Affiliate Thread

    Out of curiosity, before the e-comm was relaunched the prices in HKD used to be visible. Is there a reason y'all aren't doing that anymore?

    The Hong Kong Tailors Thread

    Some strange combination of HK & SZ. It's my understanding that the initial cutting was done in HK, then with most of the finishing across the border. @Easily Amused, in the interest of full disclosure: I had my initial fitting in March and didn't pick up until early August. That delay was...

    The Hong Kong Tailors Thread

    @benjamin831, just to give you my erstwhile 10 cents. I've been an occasional Prologue customer for about 9 months now (i.e. 1 suit, 1 pair of trou). From personal experience, I can confirm that Jerry is rather wed to a house style - classic Neapolitan. As for pricing, I paid just under 10K...

    Eidos Napoli

    @Easily Amused, would you say that the Ladro is pairable with tailored clothing? It seems like it's more of a spread collar design, unfused at that.

    Eidos Napoli

    Wondering if anyone can comment on the difference between the "Lupo" and "Ladro" polo cuts? Local retailer in HK is only selling the latter atm.

    Mr. MOMA's analysis is absurdly reductive. For a start, if he looked outside the tech industry his hypothesis about dress-down millionaires certainly wouldn't hold up. The whole thing has a certain unwholesome navel gazing quality about it - fashion is a leading industry in the fight for...

    Thanks @bamboo! That is very good to hear. Do you know if Andy outsources any stage of the making to workers in Shenzhen/Guangzhou? Or is this a 100% "made in HK" operation? Good call on the one piece, I actually had a similar problem with my first one piece collar shirt from an Australian...

    +1 It is unfortunate but many of the wealthy Chinese who are studying/immigrating to Australia (that I know of) are more interested in "clothing as status" or tribal iconography. I'd hate to generalise obviously, but I'd be confident that in most such sample groups the LVMH type-y brands have...

    As far as CM is concerned, I'd highly recommend: (1) Vanda Fine Clothing (which moved to a bigger premises recently); and (2) Dylan & Son (I'm very partial to their house style despite having had no hands-on experience with it). Turning to F&B, everyone should at least try 28 HongKong Street...
