"I found the famous Australian autoduellist Andrew Buttery again after many years! Your game DethKarz was great! I found a copy stateside a few years ago. Please e-mail me so we can stay in contact.
"The one pair work shoes that have lasted the longest for me are a pair of Doc Martens. However, they have the rubber sole rather than a more traditional and dressy leather sole, so they might not be suitable for all workplaces…
"Apologiews on the delay for the update - my travels have not been so Internet friendly recently...
Second fitting took place on Friday (a couple of days after the first fitting). The suits were complete and looked great.
William Cheng first... the…"
"I found out a few more reasons why when I had a couple of suits made recently...
1. As there is not centre seam then a centre vent is not possible. I would imagine that you probably could create one but the tailors I was dealing with in Hong Kong…"
"BTW: I did some comparision shopping yesterday as well.
You can get suits/shirts done cheaper that I have e.g. HKD 1399 (approx USD 180) for wool suit, two matching shirts and ties. Since I've had one or two dodgy tailor experiences in the…"
"First fitting today. LA Elite was first. After a bit of a wait for the tailor to arrive which was filled with a chat with George about Bombay (now Mumbai) and how he has been in Hong Kong for 44 years history in Hong Kong. Then a discussion about…"
"OK today was the first step. Found both tailors without too much trouble. OF the two William Cheng was much more professional. Well organised shop, tidy; while LA Elite reminded me of an Indian tailors shop - bolts of fabric everywhere, stuff piled…"
"I have had two tailors recommended - William Cheng and LA Elite, both in Tsim Sha Tsui.
Suit wise, I have a budget and I'll see how many I can get ;)
#1 Light grey wool, subtle pinstripe, three button, side vents, one piece back, four sleeve…"
"Hmmm... Internet suits. Don't think so.
Firstly, I want to see and feel the cloth that I'm going to be wearing in person. Viewing something on a monitor is not the same as running it through your hands and lying different options side by…"
"OK, I asked the friend who put me onto tailored suits. He heard about one-piece backs from another friend, who read it in a book that it was common in the 60's to have this cut. Both are involved in the music scene from that era and so that…"
I have a number of suits all, most made to measure. As I work in a bank most are single breasted, pin strips in dark colours (navy, chrcoal and black). In the past I have had tailored suits and I loved them, though the tailor I used to…"
"Confused why the backpack isn't professional enough, esp for a business casual environment.
I can understand if you prefer one over the other, but unless you are in a suit every day and going to court, I wouldn't bother with such a…"
After an evening of searching, it looks like this topic hasn't been covered in a few years and most of the links from those threads are dead. So, I'd appreciate some input on this topic.I've been rocking the black laptop backpack for the past several years and figured that it was time to upgrade to something a little more professional.The criteria that I have are:1. Within the range of $200 or less2. Preferably brown leather (real leather, not the cheap PU stuff)3. Will hold a roughly 15"…See More
"From a British perspective, it's important for me to watch the debate for a while and see various points of view before weighing in. It's certainly easy to see America as the most violent country in the world, domestically and…"
"I go to the gym and use every machine that requires me to pull weight towards myself. Plus 30-45 minutes of running. Next day I use every machine that requires me to push the weight away from me. Plus 30-45 minutes of cardio/running. I rest…"
"Think of everything you could do for each major muscle group. Back, Shoulders, Chest, Triceps, Biceps, legs, etc. I just keep cycling through different ones of them each time I go, keeping a journal(on my phone) of the weights I use.…"
