have a friend dropping into HK for 30 odd hours. i've lived here for near three months and have no idea what to show her. i'm guessing peak, LKF/soho, lightshow from kowloon, mong kok, etc. are a safe bet. might scope repulse bay / stanely etc. as well.. fuck i'm a lost cause. i hate being a tourist. input welcomed.

where to kop bootleg dvds? shes keen on picking some up and outside of shenzhen i have no fucking clue where to acquire..

cheers.

30 hours, going for the touristy scenic route?

I'd do the walk of stars daytime, pop over to the peak, perhaps walk around central (weekday lunch time rush) for something exciting.

have to watch the laser show from the laser show ferries, and eat that sponge cake and drink that coke.

maybe peak at night.

take her to that one temple at repulse bay.

wheres a safe (read:clean) place to get body peircings by the way?

when I was in HK for the first time, the most interesting things were probably just walking around the smaller streets in Central as well as Causeway, since its like a whole different world in a way. if visibility is good I guess the peak might be worth a quick visit, as well as taking a ferry ride, maybe at night.

all of HK is accessible as long as you're by the MTR. the city is so small, so the public transportation works phenomenally well.

there's plenty of good tat and piercing shops in TST. i remember seein a good one near take 5 on granville road.

^^^

Joyce, Lane Crawford etc. have started sales now. The stuff is still marked up pretty high, and selection isn't the greatest. I think the buy for Y's store in Lee Gardens (CWB) is better than what the Central Joyce flagship is carrying for Yohji main line. Although there's a cool black blazer at the latter with the open-zipper panels all over and double buttonholes (not the plaid version), retail is $11,100 HKD.

arrived in HK a day ago and hit up Central. today. At Lane Crawford (IFC) brands with sales at around 40%-50% off included brands such as rg, rag & bone, s2a, attachment, cdg homme, and the main cdg line off the top of my head. Also, I think it's harvey nicholas (sp?) has a selection of last seasons CoN on sale at 50% off inc the cross bones logo tee.

Joyce had a few pieces of Jil Sander on sale and notably an absence of Dior denim, I thought they use to stock it? I haven't been to HK in a while so I'm not sure...

heading to cwb tomorrow :D

harvey nicholas is has like 3-4 levels of womens and at the very top is the mens floor with brands on sale at the moment that stood out for me such as moncler, Y2K and the rest I forget...

picked up some basic Zara stuff (duffle, t's) that I couldn't find at the store in Elements (where I'm staying). I'm looking for some new pairs of work shoes but sadly all the EU 43's appear to be gone :(

Don't really expect much from CWB as it's just another lane crawford (times square; probably with a smaller selection than IFC) and Sogo.

harvey nichols blows

cwb is cool if youre just goin there for karaoke, buying phones or whatever. not so much for clothes (there's Medium Rare which stocks some JP niche brands, but prices are pretty high). oh yeah Page One on 9th floor of Times Square is a decent bookstore.

Joyce doesn't carry Dior Denim (or Dior, period) now because there's a Dior Homme flagship in Landmark near the central Joyce, and in TST the Dior Homme boutique is like a few doors down (more like up, walk in the direction of the star ferry) from Joyce, on the corner of Peking Road.

      Hi everyone, new old user here. I took a long break, from around 2010, from this scene and haven't been in the loop until a few months ago when I heard from a friend about a number of emerging Chinese brands. Having looked over their respective Taobao shops one of them stuck out and I bought my first pair of jeans in about five years (not counting APCs I've bought for work).
      That brand was Overcomer and I like them mostly for their toned down aesthetic (more Warehouse than Samurai) and also because they made a model we don't usually see, namely 1975 501s. These come in two versions, a regular Chinese denim and a Cone denim. Cone has always been lackluster for me so I went with the former, the Overcomer 051ss, and a pair of APC New Standards and a pair of Flathead 3001s. 
      The 051ss come one-wash and in these photos, I've already washed them three times; first a cold machine wash after which they didn't properly dry and took on a bit of a smell. Second cold wash didnt quite do it, so I soaked them in boiling water and that did the trick. For this reason, they're much more blue in these images than when new.
      In short, the denim is different than most other that I've seen, because it is very hairy, not that rigid, very tightly woven and because there is no weft showing through they look almost black when new, until you compare them to an actual black fabric, that is. This is very similar to the 551zxx that I've had before, in every respect. The fit is also somewhat similar, though the 551s are a 1960s (1963?) model. I'd say these fit pretty much like a 66 cut. Note, however, that they come very short.




      Here's a comparison to my Flatheads:




      APC, Overcomer, Flathead. 
      As a conclusion, the Overcomers are a level above the APCs in terms of denim and construction, and on a similar level to the Japanese brands that are popular among us here. They have a very small lineup right now and this is their only pair of jeans, but hopefully they'll be producing more.
      Some of their lookbook shots:

    • By Northwest
      People like to make all kinds of exceptions, but nearly all of the arguments for clothing being made offshore rather than domestically come down to an outdated and often unspoken idea that "not being able to buy new clothes means that you are poor, and being poor is bad." As I know many members of this board can attest, buying used clothes often means buying better clothes, and that's a part of high fashion that I admire. While there are exceptions like the Helmut Lang "art exhibition" of shredded clothing or Chanel burning clothes that do not sell, many high fashion manufacturers clothes get bought, sold, resold and resold many times over. As they are shared between admirers over multiple years they are still pieces that can be sought after. Knowing that the clothing you wear is desired by another person creates a chain of responsibility, and the better care you take of your clothes the greater your reward when it is passed on to another person.
       
      That cycle of buy, sell, resell and resell is what I'd much rather see for the clothing industry as a whole. Buying disposable clothing at the expense of a full life for another human being is not a "luxury" that anyone deserves, it’s fucking stupid. 
       
      To me, this doesn't seem like a tremendously difficult idea. People have been doing this for years, especially in big families, and to have a societal shift to this way of thinking would hopefully disrupt the exploitation of "third world" countries by multi-national corporations. This exploitation, of course, is of this country's citizens and not its governing elite. Also, a fun game to play: name a "third world" country that got there by the whole country being lazy and no one wanting their country to be better.

      edit: please note that the info here is from several years ago and might not be accurate.
      thought I'd share a few things..
      shop
      department stores in paris are quite boring, I was done with lafayette and printemps in 15 minutes. printemps had martin margiela, dries van noten, dior and others. lafayette had those plus comme des garcons... but a rather bland selection of everything. le bon marche was my favorite department store, but the menswear sections sucks compared to womens.
      colette is overrated, its basically a display cabinet for tourists, I don't know of anyone every buying anything there, unless it was a souvenier or a magazine.
      maria luisa is a nice small store, they have 3 locations with one being mens. they have ann demeulemeester, veronique branquinho, undercoverism, margiela, alexander mcqueen, some rick owens etc. somewhat limited selection of clothing and shoes but worth checking out I think if you like the style. edit: mens store is closed
      l'eclaireur was very interesting, they have several stores in paris. the one on rue herold is the original one. hard to find at first, its behind a unmarked door on the small street. once you get buzzed in you'll see a dark halway and amazing looking studio style space. they carry carol christian poell, carpe diem, undercoverism, faliero sarti, paul harnden, guidi etc. The location on rue Malher also has a great selection that mostly resembles the one on rue Herold. Ann demeulemeester, Rick Owens, Lanvin, Paul Harnden, Givenchy etc... the store on champs elysees is shit and at least a few years ago the staff was beyond annoying, haven't stepped there since then. selection is more mainstream. the rest sell womens only.
      rick owens store - always new stuff as well as sales, but only a small part of each collection. worth visiting.
      Shimji - CLOSED
      Void - new small independent store in Marais, haven't been but supposedly nice.
      oh and palais de tokyo was a pretty cool place. the bookstore there was great. we also grabbed some food at the restaurant which was surprisingly good. definately worth going to, its a great place to spend the evening since its open so late (midnight, I think).
      eat
      eat at Le 404 (moroccan, they speak english so reserve a table) and drink in the ajoined bar, Andy Wahloo. cool atmosphere, the courtyard is nice and cozy.
      Pinxo is a nice small asian/fusion restaurant, eat at the counter to see your food being prepared.
      Le Petit Marche - in Marais, nice cozy place.
      Clou - small, minimal and trendy spot in Marais, not cheap but good food.
      stay
      Artus is a nice hotel in saint-germain, but renting an apartment is usually more convenient and cheaper.
      Apartments - check out vrbo, feelparis etc, there are plenty of agencies for rentals, short or long.

      Looking to find really cool diggs in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico to spend new years..... does anyone have any super recommendations?
    • By herpsky
      Supreme harajuku: the stuff from new season looks crappy; i cant justify paying nearly 60 bucks for a tee. the interior looks pretty dope.
      neighborhood: a lot better than i expected. though they didnt have any of the crazy denim, they did have some level 2 savage denim. i tried on a pair and they looked great. 30000 yen. staff was really nice cause i didnt look like a reseller.
      FIL: no music; hot chicks working there; everything is super expensive so the shoes seem like they are reasonably priced; the SA dude carries the shoes to the entrance as i walk out and vows.
      cplus headwear: located in the basement of some old ass building. the shops in the bldg are like restaurants and cafes. very small store but the staff was really nice.
      headporter: just a complete mad house. so many people crammed into the store.
      what my friend and i learned = the size of a bag isnt proportional to its size
      a small fanny pack may cost 15000 yen but a messenger bag is 35000 yen
      lad musician: cool but it aint my steez
      atmos: the northface collabos look great but atmos x porter items are just insanely expensive. e.g. a small pouch = 10000 yen
      more to come
