also place for trendy eye glasses? (geller?)

i liked the mikli store, worth to visit.

it's in central near F.I.L. it's like the next street down. it's on the first floor, on the left side.

dont buy from dita legends in hk. crazy markup. this is probably also true for mikli, haha. nice to look though.

cutler and gross store in the elements mall, 2nd floor, on the Kowloon MTR station. a bit out of the way so i didnt get to go. you should go though.

^ I don't think they have a website jcotteri. when I was there early this year they had japanese brands like lounge lizard, lad musician and pledge, from memory the markup was pretty steep though.

I was wondering if anyone knew where i could pick up some 2nd hand/vintage/retro Casio watches like 1980's data banks or g-shocks? i was thinking i may be able to find some around Mong Kok or Yau ma Tei area. But if theres anyone here who may know any better i'd be thankful. cheers.

markup not as bad as A though. If you manage to go during sales they reduce up to 50%. at 70% off i picked up the horse leather beanie last year that ended up being half the price of it at A.

brands i remember at medium rare:

viridi anne

pledge

lad

siva

shit theres 2 more that just slipped my mind. general japanese stuff but they pretty much cover the full range of hats per season.

mong kok toymart below has this undeground floor which is all resellers stuff (visvim, etc, etc) worth a good look. I regret not buying anything there.

so just want to know.

I am hittin up HK for the first time in mid-late november. planning on doing a shit load of shopping there (mostly clothing), but a friend told me that I would be better off buying my shit online or back at home (vancouver).

With the exchange rate and because it is in Hong Kong, would I be getting a better deal buying it in HK? are there certain brands that I should look out for in terms of being a rip off to buy in HK?

any kind of info. regarding this would help.

Thanks!

you should wait until sale season. then everything is 50-70% off. worth the wait if you want to shop... target between XMAS and Chinese New Year.

alright, have been searching for a nice pair of sandals the last month to no avail. finally give up, settle on compromising and picking up a nice pair of white(?) sneakers. Something light.

Can't fucking find anything I like (with a reasonable price tag). I really don't want to have to resort to Cons - can somebody point me in the direction of a good place to look?

Wouldn't mind picking up something simple like to MMM suede toe trainers but shit is just a little too steep without sale..

There're two pairs of Drkshdw black cords (30, 32) in the Lane Crawford warehouse in Hong Kong, originally $250 USD, now discounted to $55.

thought you might be interested.. might be gone by now.. that was from a few days ago..

any luck with the viridi pants?
