Lane Crawford IFC have got some good stuffs. Go check it out. Monitaly, Stevenson Overalls, RRL, Anachronorm (rocks! really nice detailing), Gitman Vintage, White Mountaineering, Post Overalls etc. One stop place for the outdoor/Americana/workwear vibe.

How's the sale on the Gitman and RRL?

Any places that have decent stocks of Supreme that isn't rape? I've heard of Supreme Palace.

Is Lane Crawford priced like the states or is it with ridiculous markup?

All in all, is shopping in HK worth it compared with NYC? I'll be back in NYC in the fall so if HK is really marked up I'll just save my money for a few months. Thanks

there's a shop here called Supreme Palace? Where is it, never heard of it and I want to go take a look. I hardly see people wear Supreme here, maybe a guy in his mid-late 20s a few days ago with glasses who looked like he worked a normal office job and was on a day off; then again I don't get out much.

i've seen supreme mostly in resale shops like supreme palace.. some is 2nd hand but in good condition. there are spots all over HK for it. but i can't recall if i've ever seen anything like an authorized distributor in HK. but i could be wrong.

for retailers, i find the prices at places like lane crawford pretty much the same as in the us. but take into consideration that there is no sales tax in HK. also lane crawford carries a wide variety of brands (visvim, white mountaineering, etc) that you probably can't find as easily in the US. it really depends what you're looking for.

I was recently at both stores, and with the current AUD exchange rates I found HK much cheaper. The shanghai prices were about maybe $50-75 AUD higher for your average pair of jeans after exchange...?

I buy a fair bit of stuff directly from Japan and from the US, and the HK Take5 prices were comparable what I'd pay for Japanese proxy or US online stores.

1. yes take 5 is easy to find. their website also has a map of where to find it. it's about a 10 minute walk from the closest MTR station in TST

2. all of HK is a shopping mecca. you have to be more specific on what you're looking for so people can guide you. but typical shopping areas are causeway bay, TST, and Central

3. People might be talking about sneaker street which is in Mongkok. it runs parallel to sai yeung choi south and the ladies market. they sell all manner of footwear there although the stores get repetitive

you might be talking about Lei Yue Mun I assume- that's one of many famous places for seafood in HK

http://www.discoverhongkong.com/eng/attractions/kln-leiyuemun-seafood-bazaar.html

Enough selection there that you either have them prepare a set or you can pick and choose from the dealers there and select a restaurant to prepare your food. literally pick your own goods from tanks and tanks of seafood.
