Church's Fosbury loafers

Who would missed Mrporter's bi-annual sale? Definitely not me at least. This is of one the items which i purchased and it is a pair of loafers from Church's in khaki colour. Placed my order on monday and it arrived on thursday.

Original price was £290 and i got it for 50% off. I saw this exact same pair going for HKD2700 after a 40% discount in Hong Kong. Even at this discounted price in Hong Kong, it could only match the retail price in UK. Imagine how much i had saved. Now we know how high the markups are in Asia.

The workmanship of the loafers is excellent and the shape is just perfect! I am already thinking of getting another pair in navy.

Balmain Homme AW12 Military Coat

This is the coat that was worn by Milan Vukmirovic during the fashion week. At first glance, it resemble the Dior Homme napoleon jacket with the embroidered cuffs and epaulets. For me, i would prefer this Balmain coat to the elaborated Napoleon jacket due to its subtle design. The retail price is €4840 in France, expensive as usual.

Outlier Three Way Shorts

When the whole world is raving about Orlebar Brown tailored designer swinshorts, i decided to give Outlier version a try.

Why do i pick Outlier over Orlebar Brown?

Most importantly for me, Outlier uses the normal button and hole while Brown uses snap buttons. This helps to hold the shorts up while doing rigorous activity. Snap buttons will simply snap open. Furthermore, Outlier has the drawstrings on for better security.

Also, Outlier has belt loops and you can wear a belt with it if you are not at the beach. For this, you can pass it off as normal pair of shorts and not swimshorts.

Fabric-wise, it is water, dirt and stain resistant. It dries fast like what a swimshorts should be and it is made in Switzerland.

But of course, Orlebar Brown has it good points too. They have fancier looking fabrics and the zippers are nicer.

There are several colours, grey, green and blue...
