    Definately keep the tag inside the shirt. Leaving it out will totally diminish any style credibility whatsoever.

    Oh yea he's real - check out his "So High Fashion Blog" complete with the offending Armani Tshirt and such gems as:
    "Thaksin former billionaire prime minister of Thailand now living in exile spotted rocking Louis Vuitton Belt and Burberry shirt. I dont like how he runs his country but i respect him for his interest in branded stuffs!"​
    and
    "...too bad our Burberry dont have them in Malaysia! dont ask me to find them overseas! because i am not a traveller.. for 2 good reasons I want to spend my money in Malaysia to help our economy and lastly I am afraid to travel oversea because sked virus."
    AND the best of all:
    "Even the Nazis uniform make those krauts look so sharp and charismatic. So yea Hugo Boss are not only famous for their marketing and premium fused suits, but they are the company who made those awesome uniforms for the Nazis."

    when i see someone bragging about using some brand i feel i need to tell him something:
    1: You are way too insecure, go see a shrink, maybe you re depressed.
    2: You don't need to show the brand for people to tell. A lot of people easily recognise world's best brandes Patek Phillippe, JLC, Hermes products, etc... Showing the label is caring way too much about what unknownlegeable people thinks ... People who care will notice without you showing the brand ...
    3: You're a f*****ing idiot! Stop doing that crap and maybe you will get laid someday (or at least by someone who actually cares about you and not a goldigger who will take all you $$$ and then leave)

    Y'know, for the price of two of those shirts you could get yourself a really nice camera...to take pictures that don't suck...
    Yes he could buy a nice Leica for what he would spend on just two of these t-shirts, instead of using that cheap PoS iPhone knock-off he's evidently got.

    The wealthy Westerners you are trying to imitate are way, way beyond this stage in dressing to show off their money. It's time to catch up.
    I'm not sure catching up with wealthy Westerners, imitating them accurately and doing things that would actually make a positive impression on them would be anything but a colossal waste of time and money for someone who might never actually meet a wealthy Westerner in person.

    Oh I don't think he needs help, He enjoys what he likes. He's your typical probably nouveau riche Chinese alpha male. They're quite common in places like Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Hong Kong, Macau, Taipei, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, etc. I think Hermes Man is somewhat unusual though because he blogs about it in quite good English and in great depth.

    Brand whoring is absolutely endemic in this part of the world. Even the students at the local schools will often draw famous western designer luxury logos on their tracksuit school uniforms with laundry marker.


    Huh, I never found many guys in SG to be so brand and image obsessed. Most of the ones I've met are just the shorts and t-shirt type, though of course there are those who care about how they look. From my experience the women are 100x worse, total brand whores. Better be prepared to drop down some serious cash on some branded purses if you ever want to date a singaporean girl!

    Does anyone know how hermes man affords this? Rich parents I'm assuming, but does he earn any of his own money, and if so, what does he do?

    I'd love to be able to afford a $400 t-shirt, shit!

    Chinese tool not Alpha Males.

    I wonder why no Malaysians have chimed in about their compatriot and how his braindead nonsense is embarrasing them.

    Hermes man does not seem to be a troll. Would a troll take real photos of himself and post on his own blog full of his real photos and his friends photos and his brilliant insights?

    so do you think it would look weird if I purposely leave the label hanging outside like this


    But how do you deal with the issue of the label getting tucked back into the shirt as you wear it throughout the day?

    Have you considered stapling the label to the back of your neck? Sure, it's painful, but such is the sacrifice you have to make for fashion.

    No offense, in UK I saw more spoiled Russian and British than my fellow Chinese University students. The most likely spoiled Asian, according to my observation, are Thai, but at least they are not so loud to their possession. Maybe I am just in the wrong part of UK
