Going to HK in June. What about finding brands like:

Supreme

Undercover

W(Taps

+ vintage Polo (80's) & Lyle & Scott. Also camogear & varsityjackets.

Also heard that Mongkok is good for sneaker business.. any info on that?

i was wondering what places you can buy jeans at in hk?

it doesn't have to be expensive brands like evisu, it can just be anything....any brand.

i'm especially looking for faded jeans, or just any stylish jeans that young ppl in hk would wear.

it's also important that i can actually try the jeans on. i wouldn't want to buy jeans without trying them on.

it should also be reasonably priced, like around $150-200 hkd i would say.

i was thinking of Apple Shop in hk, where they sell jeans.

but i'm not familiar with what types of jeans they sell, or if their styles suit hk young ppls' taste.

You would not go far with 150-200 honkie jeans. Apple Shop carries the brand called Texwood, they are like 300-350hkd, made from US denim.

Go to Lai Chi Kok area in Kowloon, look around, there is a lot of cheap jeans there in small shops all over the place.

aside from apple shop, you could try and hit up giordano. they have moderately priced clothes. they have an arrangement of jeans in different cuts and fades. also bossini and baleno too. you can find those stores everywhere.

Giordano Bossini Baleno - yes, good option for classic basis looking jeans, but they look just what they worth. For cheap jeans "with a twist" I suggest to go to Lai Chi Kok and walk in circles around MTR station

i thought jeans in giordano/bossini/baleno are really plain looking?

or are their jean styles better now?

how about department stores? jusco, uno, etc.

maybe it's better to buy jeans in the US instead?

nah they got better washes now. nothin i'd wear tho. just check yourself when you're in HK, it's not like you can't avoid a giordano/bossini/baleno. they're everywhere. dunno bout those dept stores you're talkin bout but most dept stores are pricey. i'd try uniqlo. also the markets like the ladies market and temple street, they got tons of cheap jeans there in a variety of washes. i think on temple street there's one pretty big denim store that's in the 2nd block from where the night market starts.

if you're just lookin for regular jeans, it's cheaper to buy in HK.. but stuff that's imported from europe and america is a bit more pricey.
