I will be travelling to Hong Kong in November, staying for four days and then heading to Japan.

Jut thinking if I should do most of my clothes shopping in Hong Kong or should I wait till Japan?

I will most probably go RTW route. As it is a more affordable option for me.

For the clothes you can find in both places, HK is cheaper (unless they originally comes from Japan).

H.K. has awesome shopping malls that are perfect for RTW shopping and the prices are much lower than Japan.

If you are looking for some special item, the chances of finding it in Japan are greater.

I actually saw some Anna Matuozzo shirts at an outlet mall in Japan several days ago! (Didn`t buy though, since I didn`t like the style)
