But any way, you can pick up CLOT obviously from Juice in Causeway Bay, as for Subcrew, there is a store in President Shopping Center in the basement level, so you can check there...

As for Neighborhood and Supreme, best bet is just to run around re-seller shops and stuff, otherwise check out places HOODS in central...

Not so much a shopping related question, but still relevant...

The crotch of my Levi's co.jp's blew out and I'm looking for a place to do a very high quality and key word: STEALTHY repair. Specifically, I'm not keen on really erratic sewing, barbarous and hihgly VISIBLE repairs done on a pair which is heavy in my denim rotation.

My girlfriend's mom told me to check out those little "dong"s in Central at the Pedder Street exit.Can anyone vouch for their quality in repairs?

Thanks to the regulars; Pimp, Eugene or anyone who can provide any assistance.

Yeh, i came over last year & i dont remember the prices being as high as they are now. Shame, because there was one or two nice pieces amongst the rest of the garbage when i called in last week.

To say it's overpriced is an understatement. Im a big fan of NBHD, but i think you could do alot more with your money when in HK.

On a different note, i went into a (black) 'chocoolate' store today for the first time. After passing it numerous times before & seeing it as 'not my thing' i was pretty suprised whilst looking around! Some really nice bits like thier varsity jackets, an M-65 jacket, a down vest (shame about the hood), cardigan & a few shirts too.

yeah chocolate is a HK brand, so is 2% etc. lots of hk made brand produces quality goods, eg. plain shit at a very very decent price.

if you really want NBHD etc, its better to get it second-hand in hk. so look for small consignment stores to dig out some goodies.

yeah NBHD and pretty much any Japanese brand is overpriced in Hong Kong. I can see that kinda pricing from an American/European perspective, but considering HK's proximity to Jp i think it's ridiculous. Not to mention prices have been steadily rising season by season...a pair of NBHD denim is now what, $4,900? That's what the 'water' reseller shops used to charge...lol, i remember when Joyce started carrying N(N) and Undercover people were jumping for joy that they no longer had to pay reseller's rape prices, and then the legit shops took pricing cues right from them. Smart.

To answer your question, its not so much the fact that there is a big market for Fake Streetwear products, its more that there are a lot of people who buy fake products that don't even realize its fake to begin with leading to so many places stocking fakes... especially since they realized they can make more money off idiots buying fakes, then people buying legit goods...

go to that store in Causeway Bay...ahh shit i don't know its english name. Its at the bottom corner of the street right around the corner from PORTS, and has a 7-11 and Circle K convenience stores right across it. They have the best selection and brands. It is where I got my Oliver Goldsmiths.

I.T. failed in its overexpansion of the flagship store which was designed to house all the top designer brands and thus promote an image of luxury and status attached to the whole corporation, diffusing down to its local homemade brands. The problem is, in opening up more and more of these boutique 'emporiums' that keep getting bigger in scale and scope not only diluted its intended impact, it also created bigger losses for what was already a loss-leading department of the company.

I think "Big IT" in itself is positioned fine. True they have many in-house labels but the fact these in-house labels are kept as separate as possible is the best possible outcome for IT. If somebody comes to HK for the first time, I doubt they'll associate Choocolate, Fingercroxx, Double Park etc with the high-fashion labels seen in "Big IT". However for people that realize and understand the relationship it may have an impact. But above all else, their stores are well-curated I feel, and the labels within the same genre (extreme example) but you aren't seeing XLarge next to like MMM.

that wasn't really the point i was tryin to get at...i don't think there's anything wrong with XLarge, Chocoolate, etc. being associated with the IT name/brand, after all those are more accessible to the regular customer on the street.

It's the fact that the capital letters IT flagship has expanded aggressively, when that stock, which is the most expensive from all of the company's standpoints, isn't moving well to begin with. Was at IT shanghai last month and they were already doin some pretty massive promotional discounts...i think it's fine to position this flagship to give off the company's image as one associated with refinement in a few key strategic locations. But at this point, any further expansion should be on the ground level brands like 5 cm, izzue, etc. rather than building more massive high fashion IT shops.

Thanks for the explanation, having not been to the Shanghai IT location I can't really comment on that and I haven't been to a local IT in recent weeks either. But regardless are you refering to IT's mainland expansion or just expansion in general? I also question how recession proof the affluent who IT is marketed towards are reacting towards shopping.
