Back from Hong Kong

I just got back from Hong Kong. Drove Porsche 911 Turbo. Had nice food. Went for family gathering. Celebrated my birthday. Went to ShenZhen, stayed at Grand Hyatt. Attended my good friend wedding. Went to my best friend birthday party.

Although i didn't buy anything but it was a pleasant trip. Sale is still on at almost every store but nothing interest me. I received my new leather jacket and Balenciaga jeans in HK and the fit of both is perfect. Really happy about it! Here are some pictures of what i wore in HK.


More pictures on my facebook...

First stop, i went to a few shops to try on the few AP ROO that i like. As expected, a ROO is too big for me. It is not the diameter that is big, it is the straps/bracelets. If i were to get a ROO, i have to buy a shorter strap and change the clip buckle to a pin buckle...

I saw the SS10 Balenciaga sneakers at Joyce and it was retailing for HKD5,1000 (expensive!). Both the grey and blue versions were available. Overall, the sneaker looks nice and i prefer the grey one. Anyway, the croc leather looks real but i am not sure.

Next, i also went to the one and only Christian Louboutin store at On Lan Street. A black Louis Spikes was on display but it was the women version (exactly the same except smaller in sizes). The price for the men version is HKD7,900 and i was really tempted to order it as it was cheaper than Singapore. This pair of sneaker looks very well-made but in the end, i convinced myself not to buy it. Anyway, the women version is HKD6,900.

There is a store named Swank and i was recommended to visit it as it stocks Balmain. When i arrived at the store for women, there were basically only 2 items left and both items are actually from the current season. One of them is a pair of leather pants which is the leather version of the motorcycle jeans. The sales assistant insisted that i should try it so i went ahead. The pants looks really nice on me but it was too big for me even though it is a size 40. So now i know i have to get a 38 if i were to buy a pair of Balmain jeans. And for the information, the price is HKD37,000. Crazy!

I guess i will save on this season and splurge on Versace in Winter...

Now, my mind is all about the Louboutin Louis Spikes and Balmain jeans!

I know i will get a Black Louis Spikes but should i get the Black or Blue Balmain?

amazing outfits!
i love the shiny boots, the leather jacket and the jacket with the check-details. fantastic! ;)

...and please choose the black jeans. it looks straighter with all these details when it’s coloured in black and much more subtle. the blue one looks a bit cheap.

best,
rob ;)

Hey mate, so the size 46 and the original sleeze lenght fits you OK on the leather jacket from Studhomme? Or does it run bigger than your DH size 46. Still wondering which size I should get as I heard the jacket stretches....

Monsieur AG said...

those are actually studs on the jacket... :)

Monsieur AG said...

46 fits me fine but i had the sleeves shortened 2cm. As whether if the leather will stretch, i don't know but it is very soft and i think it might actually stretch a bit...

Happy Birthday man!

You should look into the Royal Oak 15300. I bought one recently and like it almost more than my Offshore.

Sporty yet elegant and definitely looks better on a smaller wrist.

Monsieur AG said...

thanks man!

i've considered the Royal Oak but i preferred oversized watch so....i don't know man...

I just got back from HK recently. I've also visited the Swank. They do have Balmain Homme as well. I saw some a t-shirt and a pair of jeans in grey, are they still there?

Then, there were no ladies Balmain pieces left. All sold out.

Monsieur AG said...

yeah i think they are still there...

Hey AG, the DH 07ss biker jacket fits great on you man! I really would appreciate If you can tell me your height and weight so that gives me a better idea of what size I should be getting for this leather jacket :)

Monsieur AG said...

thanks! i am 175cm and 65kg. Hope it helps...by the way, i had the sleeves altered...the original sleeves are too long and baggy...

hi, those jackets looks great on you!

i am just curious for the 07 SS biker.
in "actual product/runway version/the one you wearing" photos,
the quilting pattern on right shoulder are more dense. (5 diamond checks in the bottom roll)

but in following fashion shot, it has only 4 checks in the bottom roll.

another thing is the jacket bottom near to waist...
i never saw anyone belted it.
and all photos shows that it is inclined.
is it inclined and pointed to ground or became horizontal after fastened?

thanks man!
