    I was in Seoul a couple of weeks ago. Lots of black suits, many of them shiny.

    yup. Then again, the "rules" were written by white dudes. Korean dudes wear black a bit better than we do.

    Honestly I think black suits look fine on most Asian people due to their complexion and hair color.

    The problem comes with their choices of accessories... would be better if Korean people did it like Japanese business men did instead of opting for sparkly ties and weird shirts.

    I'm not against black suits, but shiny ones are a bit odd.

    You don't like pink nylon ties with rhinestones and attached chromed plastic (and more rhinestones) tie bar?

    Hey a guy in Hong Kong thinks that shiny suits are a bit odd. There is hope yet, we just have to spread that message to the mainland. [​IMG]

    I don't understand why korean people want to look that pale. Looks like a corpse to me. Koreans look better with a little color to em anyway in my opinion.
    It happens in China as well, especially young men and women. Trying to look as pale as possible and keeping out of the sun completely. I think they see pale skin as a beauty thing. I know when they see my pasty lilly white skin they think it's beautiful. :O

    Seen a sheep in Korea? I'm not sure, but I'd bet there's some protections on the local textile market (which is largely synthetic).

    I'm quite sure 'polyester makes the world go round' everywhere. Probably only some denizens of SF and over at "Ask Andy About Clothes" which tend to avoid it, if possible.

    Don't they eat lamb or mutton in Korea?

    In a middle eastern restaurant in Itaewon if they can get it at a reasonable rate. Otherwise it's unheard of.

    Korean style is all black and grey with repetitive haircuts.

    You're just seeing young guys. Older guys might have one 3 different kinds of tweed.

    In any case, I don't wanna sound like I'm hating too hard. The average Korean is dressed better than the average American in my opinion.

    Yes. I am in Seoul quite often and the style of the young people is better than in most other countries. Korean girls are the most beautiful, also.

    I make lamb curry for myself fairly often. Cheap too! But it definitely isn't produced domestically.

    Samsung makes ok fabric. Their best stuff isn't horrible, but it's fairly boring.

    They are indeed beautiful. However, I would like to add an asterisk to your comment: 90% of the beautiful Korean girls have gone through plastic surgeries at least once.

    Both of these are so true. Never understood the hype over Japanese girls, the average Korean woman is so much prettier, it's ridiculous.

    I know you can get Lamb in non Middle Eastern places in other places around Seoul.

    Where are these people you are meeting?

    There is old-fashioned Korea and then there is New Korea. Korean style for the "New" generation will blow most people away. Plus, like the Japanese with their own Street Wear Style, Korean Style suits Koreans only.

    Girls are probably the most sensationally dressed on this planet.
