I am looking for a trilby hat and these are what i have found. They are all from CA4LA, a japanese brand which is famous for their headwear. Unfortunately, they are not available here. I guess i would have to wait till i go to japan. Which one do you think is nice?

The picture below is a size 40 of the SS07 leather biker jacket. I found the picture from an auction. I don't mean to offend anyone but i think the jacket look rather cute and funny. It looks like the kids version of the jacket. It seems to be out of shape in comparison to a bigger size.
This is the comparison between a size 40 and 46

As for the SS07 jacket, it is just perfect. The fit is awesome but the sleeves are kind of loose and long but overall, i love it. Finally, i've found the perfect leather jacket for me...
Extreme World ChronographThese are the 2 watches that i am currently interested in...Jaeger-LeCoultre, a watchmaker with long history.
(My birthday is exactly one month later. Anyone wants to buy this for me? Haha...I am just kidding. I WILL WORK HARD for them.)

This is one of the other leather jacket that was featured on the Dior Homme AW06-07 campaign. Its is brandnew and i haven't even have a chance to wear but i've just sold it. I like the design but its not slim-fitting enough for me although i wear a size 46 for blazers. I guess i would have to size down when buying a leather jacket. Anyway, hope the new owner will like this more than me.

What's the concept of the new show? What can we expect?
It started with a commission from a Spanish contemporary art museum called MUSAC, together with indie-rock festival Benicàssim, which I documented extensively this year.
And the title, Perfect Stranger?
The recognition of a total stranger in a crowd—like a déjà vu, a movie close-up or the description of a character in a novel. I've spent my life documenting perfect strangers. It is also about the construction of an icon, the making of faith and the illusion of community—therefore, the illusion of the live performance and its promises.
Is curating a solo show more challenging than a group show, such as Sweet Bird of Youth?
I am not really into group shows, I have to say. I only did them because they were kindly proposed. They are only interesting to me when it is a full commission of new works, which is difficult to achieve, and there is the same level of commitment and consistency among the artists. Solo shows are more straight-forward. I can keep working on them until the last minute without any kind of personal issue.

The classic one button satin peak lapel jacket.
It first appeared in 2004...but subsequently it became a classic piece and was available in almost every Hedi's collection.
I saw it at the new Dior Homme boutique in Hong Kong when i was there in August. The price was HKD18,400. I regretted not buying it but it was out of my budget anyway.

And finally, this is the camera that i bought...a Canon G9. The design is not attractive but there are a few reason why i chose this over the Panasonic and Leica. Most importantly, the ISO speed dial and the mode dial is on the external part of the camera. I can conveniently change the settings unlike the other 2 which i have to press several buttons to access it on the system. Furthermore, its has a control dial which works like a Ipod wheel. For the other better features are the 12megapixel sensor, 6X optical zoom, optional flash and the 3" LCD. The only thing that is not really good about it is the inaccurate viewfinder.
