Designer-Inspired cuff-links right across the border,
Ties from factories across the border (how is the quality and make anyway)
In-store Jantzen,
A-man,


hmm..seems all we need are shoes.
What am I missing which I can waste more of my hard-earned savings on?

Hey luk-cha,
Did you ever get around to comparison-shopping for China-based Jantzen alternatives? Just curious.

(Apologies if I'm thread-jacking here.)

i have put the order in and i got it back but they made it about 6' too short as i order some casual shirts too which i wear un-tucked but the quality was as good if not better coz the things i asked for (apart from lenth) they did i am just waiting for some other sample from them and the price will be about the same as Jantzen - so once i get every thing back i will do a full write up and i am in the process of getting a website up and running so we all should benifit from chinese dumpping of cheap dress shirts
(just dont tell bush!)

and of course lets not forget that ever-present chain store- giordano. seems like every street corner in hk has one. not really a store for the sartorially inclined but they have items that hits the mark- linen shirts, khaki trousers, cheap socks.

Lol, everytime my mom comes back from a trip to Hong Kong, bags of Bossini and Giordano flood my apartment. I remember my cousin who is from Hong Kong said Bossini was cheap and low quality stuff looked down upon. Any truth to that?

bossini and giodano u2 are the hk equivent to GAP and about the same quality and not as fashion forward as say zara h&m and topman et al!

bossini, giordano and u2 are inexpensive low quality stuff. and there are some more even below them like baleno and hang ten (yeah, that old california brand with the footprint logo is still alive in hongkong)
