    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    An easy enough to understand mistake I would have thought kolecho. How about offering something helpful instead being such a smart arse.
    Thanks Gazman, I'll ask Peter for the secret stuff that you wear.

    I am not as smart as you, but perhaps you should have asked for help. Many SFers pass through HK and get a lot of helpful advice, and some nice company to boot for drinks. I think you are the smartarse here trying to go about things on your own and hitting a wall.

    - I thought it was an Emporio Armani he was wearing?

    Oh please. Do you know how silly and pompous that sounds? How dare i wander about in HK without prior approval of the SF members. And I hardly call popping into a wrong tailors hitting a wall. I live in Honkers by the way and had a day off and thought I'd try and follow up some of the advice offered here.
    Thankfully, most people in SF understand that, regardless of age, we need to ask questions occasionally and they offer helpful advice.

    Erm...

    Hadn't been shopping in TST for years and years so it was a lot of fun tracking down the tailors and also the Uniqlo store.

    Not a wasted trip then [​IMG]

    Oh and if anyone needs to know where Tassels is located it is downstairs from my waxing salon next to Louboutin behind M&S in Central.

    The reason I checked out Uniqlo was because until recently I had never heard of this brand but kept coming across it in GQ. The British GQ Style guy keeps referring to Uniqlo jeans as his favourites.
    He also mentions their white TShirts. So I checked out the store. Not a lot on offer for a gent of my age, shape and taste, but I did buy a pair of their very dark jeans and at about $50 Aussie dollars what the heck?

    hi,

    i am curious about the different prices. can you let us know in detail what you paid for each item at chan? i am planning a trip to hk by the year-end and am considering to change from amhc over to chan, as their service attitude really pi##es me off. i have good experiences at william yu, just some issues with the canvassing which i will have to check with them in december.

    also, really big compliments on the corduroy suit, looks awesome. i never even thought about it, while i do have corduroy pants from william yu. i might order the jacket for it just to follow the trend you have set.

    btw, does anyone know if amhc is/was part of the red gang?
