#JJStyle: Moustache Looks Back At 5th Anniversary

Thanks to their blog, we now know that this month the gents at Hong Kong’s best casual tailoring shoppe, Moustache, are celebrating their 5th year anniversary… as in… they MADE IT TO FIVE YEARS!!! As Alex Daye (aka j.a.daye) stated in his blog post, where these inaugural lookbook images above are posted…they began their menswear journey during the financial tsunami at the end of the last decade. That said, it’s really funny how financial tsumanis tend to be a turning point for many people. I know it was for me (quitting my last job, and starting a new post … plus starting this blog), it just makes all of us that much more creative doesn’t it?

Everything you need to know about Moustache you can read on Alex’s blog (or mine since I tend to always feature them). Most importantly, Alex recounts over several blog posts how and what the inspirations were for their business and how it has evolved since then. It’s a great read.

I just wanted to re-blog/re-post these dapper images from their first lookbook, printed on seemingly luxurious matte paper. Alex models in the photos, which are taken by his business partner, Ellis Kreuger, who is also the head tailor at Moustache. The lookbook is a mixture of photographs of Alex in various Moustache-wear from their first collection, in different much loved sites all over Hong Kong… from Shek-O to Sheung Wan. The photos are juxtaposed with handwritten text by Alex, who used to be (and by the looks of the blog, still is) a writer.

Enjoy the style… and the City’s urban nostalgia!

#JJStyle: MR PORTER Joins The Club

Club Monaco has never had amazing online presence Internationally, but… guess what MR PORTER has. And now the two have finally teamed up and are on their way to giving guys all around the world access to Club Monaco’s selection of delicious modern pieces for men. The label is a touch higher priced than a few other like-labels on the “affordable luxury” category, however the quality, fit, and materials used are impeccable. These are everyday classics that I personally feel are made to last.

MR PORTER is now the exclusive online global retailer for Club Monaco. And while we have Club Monaco in Hong Kong, it’s not available in many Asian cities, and with this new team up, everyone can have a bit of urban sophistication associated with the brand if they so desire.

FYI. All Express Shipping is free for MR PORTER customers in Hong Kong.

#JJStyle: Don’t Bling, Be Normal. A Lesson in ‘Normcore’ From Gap Hong Kong / China

The Chinese fashion set who are used to so much bling, will have to think twice, especially when GAP in Hong Kong and China will start pushing out their version of ‘Normcore’ via their “Be Normal” campaign this fall 2014. That said, when Danish fashion designer who launched COS, Rebekka Bay, set out to fix all of GAP’s problems worldwide starting two years ago, i’m sure she never imagined that her whole re-focus on key simple pieces from the label’s “Americana” archives, would be simplified to the masses as an homage to normality. However timely it is… well, GAP’s newest campaign has made the “desire to fit in” or “the fear of standing out” (Urban Dictionary’s definition of the word ‘normcore’) a little something that everyone can / should strive towards. For those in the Mainland Chinese market so used to BLINGGG i’m sure there will be some effort involved.

Apparently “GAP’s Fall Campaign celebrates individuality by challenging the convention of dressing normal.” Amongst those who accepted the challenge, actress Angelica Huston, actress Elisabeth Moss, actor Michael K. Williams, actress Jena Malone, and actress Zosia Mamet.

via GAP China:

The campaign is rooted in the same core values the brand has unapologetically stood for over the past 45 years – individualism and the liberation that comes from confidently being your most authentic self. Dress Normal boldly instructs individuals to shape their own authentic, personal style – and intentionally challenges every one of us to dress for ourselves.

#theWanderlist: A Guide To Sartorial Style in Hong Kong

image

Well the cat’s out of the bag. My boss and an co-worker just walked up to me yesterday at the studio telling me that they just saw my video (above) in the Hong Kong Airport’s video screens and wondered why that was. Yes, there are people out there that don’t read this blog, or could care less what I do after hours… and most those people work with me. Which is great. So when they do let me know that they’ve seen me on Airport screens, it’s a bit funny to me.

About that video… this past summer I collaborated with the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) and producers at Singapore’s LiTV, to create some content for Hong Kong’s new global AD Campaign in Asia as well as to mark the arrival of the city’s new concierge app, MY HONG KONG GUIDE

The campaign, themed around the caption, My Time for Renewal, takes three guys; Celebrity Chef Alvin Leung, Model / Host Jason Godfrey, and Me, and introduces audiences to our favorite spots all over Hong Kong. Alvin tells carnivores where to get their fill of beef, Jason tells tourists how best to explore the city while getting the right amount of sun, and I teach guys where (in my opinion) is the best place to source a uniquely bespoke look. If you’d like to follow my Sartorial guide through this city… you can watch the video, use the itinerary on the app, and read the post below for more information about each of my Hong Kong menswear destinations I truly support and recommend.

————

+ ELEMENTS OF A SUIT // Sham Shui Po District

image

You can begin your sartorial adventure by sourcing your own fabrics, lining material, and buttons at the (in)famous Sham Shui Po district in Hong Kong. This little district is one of the poorest and most dense locations of public housing estates. However, it is also a destination for Electronic geeks looking for rare imports (prices are not that cheap), and Fashion designers looking to source materials and other items for their creations. I definitely know fellow blogger, Geneva, DIY blogger A Pair and A Spare comes here almost every week, and so does Paola, designer of her label, Tangram. Most recently, artist Michael Leung had formulated a Night Market Project initiative at Sham Shui Po, which you can read about here.

So much on offer here, it can be overwhelming.

image

However, for those who are brave enough to venture…

image

Will find plenty of very cool items to choose from.

image

So many shops line the streets for your sourcing needs.

image

With tons of fabric options for all your different suits.

image

For the sake of sourcing for the suit, there are a few areas on the street and some shops that do sell fabric for the outer shell and a suit’s lining. However, your tailor will also have a selection on offer. I suggest readers to come only to Sham Shui Po if only they have something particular that you are in search of, are trying to save a few bucks on material, or are looking for fabric for suit accessories like additional dress pants or dress shirts.

Remember, suiting fabric comes in various types beyond the Multi-Blend, Wool, or Polyester suits you are used to. Depending on the time of year or the event, you may opt for cotton, flannel, herringbone, linen, poplin, seersucker, or tweed.

+ BEST OF THE SPECS // Woo Ping Optical Co. in North Point

image

After Sham Shui Po, we ventured over to the iconic Mom & Pop owned, Woo Ping Optical, in North Point. This place has been around since 1974… and at arrival, I immediately noticed that nothing about that place has changed since the Seventies! Most notably, a really vibrant lady dressed in forever ‘81 (as in 1981), is always there to offer great customer service to all who visit.

At Woo Ping, they sell plenty of used and new Ray Bans from different eras (Generic, Japanese, and US Only models), and a bunch of retro Japanese glasses that still are very much back in vogue today.

The nice lady, Ms. Chan,… one half of Woo Ping Optical.

image

As it stands, frozen in time. Thank goodness.

image

Retro is now back in. You got the memo?

image

Which Japanese frames did I get? Guess.

image

The other half of Woo Ping Optical who refuses to get his photo taken.

image

I bought a pair of Japanese handcrafted green tortoise shell specs and prescription lenses to fit in. The perfect pair cost me around 400 hkd… TOTAL. Take that Lens Crafters!

According to our friends at Moustache Tailors (who feature Woo Ping on their own Hong Kong Guides), Woo Ping has plenty of fans including lady Shum Din Ha, tycoon Li KaShing, and singer Eason Chen.

+ SUIT WITH THE RIGHT CUT // Moustache in SOHO

image

Speaking of Moustache Tailors, we went to see them after the glasses place to check out how my summer jacket was going. Ellis Kreuger from the UK and his partner, Alex Daye from the US, are both the co-owners of Moustache. We actually had a lengthy interview with them a few years ago, which was photographed by Carmen Chan of How I Met Your Style. Back then they were were just venturing into Bespoke Denim on top of their Suiting services. Today they’re still going strong, and have actually given themselves Sundays off and an additional tailor/seamstress added on to the team in order to meet up with demand.

Some behind the scenes of the updated Moustache shop.

image

Really excited to ‘design’ this summer wool jacket with Ellis and Alex.

image

The difference between a suit from Moustache and a suit from a tailor in TST, is that Ellis and Alex are real masters of the perfect “cut” with an eye focused on current fashion trends and styling. Meaning, you will most likely get a suit that is maybe a bit more playful and fashion forward with a cut that is right for your body type (ie. slimming), vs. a suit based off of a generic paper template which is easily adjustable for different measurements. The difference is a look that is 2014 versus 1984.

Moustache will also give the customer options for all types of outer shell and lining combinations, stitching types, collar and lapel shapes, pockets, vents, pleats, cuffs… really it’s like being part of a fashion designer’s process. While this may initially seem overwhelming, it’s really not, because Ellis explains the whole process so easily and he’s got a form he writes on to make it seem like everyone is putting together specs for a new race car or something. Plus, there are also some guys out there that don’t want the selection of 5 materials that everyone is forced to gorge on when getting a generic tailored suit or jacket. My summer suit is actually made of a lightweight maroon thin wool material, and lined with a lime green and black polka-dot lining. I originally ordered golden buttons, but ended up with red wool covered buttons. The whole look is comfortable, casual, and modern. These guys are so easy to work with and the suit is ready in about 4 weeks with two visits total before the pick up.

+ IF THE SHOE FITS // Shoe Artistry in Mongkok

image

Before we ventured back to Hong Kong side from Kowloon, we stopped over in a non-descript Mongkok building to visit Shoe Artistry located on the 2nd Level. Shoe Artistry is Hong Kong’s premier studio for handmade measure-to-make shoes and it’s founder, Central Saint Martins graduate Kit Lee, is a very passionate artisan.

Kit started Shoe Artistry as a way to help a friend find a way to make her own bespoke shoe to celebrate finishing her final degree. In the process they were able to discover the iconic MING KEE shoe makers in Jordan, and his collaboration with MING KEE allows Kit to find a new generation of consumers looking to create a bespoke shoe.

Very low-key shopfront, but Shoe Artistry is the best in Handmade shoes.

image

Colors and styles on offer make everything “on trend”.

image

Loving this shoe wall.

image

All the shoe forms for each client on the long shelf.

image

The difference between a hand made shoe and high priced Italian brand, is that at the end of the day, mass-produced shoes are designed to fit a variety of feet sizes and are most likely partly built by machines, whereas shoes at Shoe Artistry are 100% handmade, and are based off a hand drawing of your own unique foot. Shoes at Shoe Artistry are not cheap and run from about 250 to 500 USD depending on the complexity of the style. However, a bespoke shoe really does finish a bespoke suit quite nicely, AND the artisanal shoe’s design are custom made for each individual gentleman.

+ OLD FASHIONED BAR // Tai Lung Fung in Wanchai

image

Not really menswear or sartorial related, but since we’re on the right wavelength… a well suited man certainly will find himself right at home here at Tai Lung Fung, a watering hole tucked away behind the historic Stone Nullah Blue House. The chill space is actually more of a local then a destination bar, however its nostalgic decor and refreshing version of a Whiskey Old Fashioned makes this place a perfect night that is uniquely one-of-a-kind in Hong Kong. 

image

That’s definitely where we ended, and I’m glad that we did. I can still taste that whiskey drink. Go before dinner or after (not during.)

#JJStyle: Erbert Chong Discovers A Black Metropolis, AW 2014

Ever since I went to check out Erbert Chong’s debut  starting with a SS14 collection this time last year, i’ve been a fan of his understated yet sharp work. “Fierce” is something I would describe Erbert’s overall directive since launch. As I reported before, Erbert is a graduate of no less than three international fashion programmes… Parsons, FIT, and then ESMOD in Paris. 

One year later, his AW14 collection (ie. second line), is about to go on sale. Dubbed Black Metropolis, the latest lookbook campaign, photographed by Rosemary Conway, does its best to give the looks… derived from turn of the century “Old-World glamour and dark occultism”, a proper stage. The looks are feminine, but with a very masculine and architectural raw edge. Of course, Erbert looks to Fritz Lang’s 1927 Futura-Art Deco film, Metropolis, an inspiration source, as are objects and other architectures like the Chrysler Building.

Still quintessentially a Hong Kong designer, Erbert infuses classic silhouettes of the traditional qipao into the mix to help give a sense of height and strength to the his clients who are always all too eager to wear his collection.

Other things to note, the fabrics used in this particular line are specially sourced from Beijing’s oldest historic fabric shop, Rui Fu Xiang, renowned for their history of making handcrafted Chinese silks for traditional cheongsam and qipao dresses.

#JJStyle: J.Crew’s Crosby Cuts Slim Suits For The Big Guy

Newly opened J.Crew has had a specialized suiting store for its successful “Ludlow” line of suits for some time now. The Level 3 Suiting Shop in the On Lan Street location has everything one needs from a casual suit to a black tie affair, plus a more personalized custom service if needed… that is if you look good in Ludlow. And fortunately for my friend, DJ Angus Wong, while it looks great on a long and lean guy like him, it looks awfully awkard on a big and stocky guy like me. And now that i’m working that much harder in the gym, the Ludlow suit won’t get closer to the ‘right’ fit.

This month, J.Crew finally makes a slim cut suit for the Big Guys like us, with hopefully a new iconic line… “The Crosby”. Now available in only 17 shops around the world (including Hong Kong) plus online, the initial line will come in 4 styles for the coming fall plus two Online-Only styles in a herringbone and wool flannel. Other things to note, the Crosby is especially designed for an Athletic fit (think Don Draper), which means extra rooms in key areas like arms, chest, legs, and a slightly wider lapel. Other details in the Crosby borrow from the Ludlow. The fabric in the suit come from some of the more respected mills around the world, with key details finished by hand.

For the first campaign, J.Crew suited up the New York Knights rugby team to show how great a Crosby suit looks on a bulkier body. The jackets are around 4,000 HKD while the pants are around 2,200 HKD.

#JJStyle: Hong Kong’s Fierce Finest in Style-Off

This Sunday and for the next five Sundays after, the new PMQ (Police Married Quarters) in Hong Kong’s chic SOHO District, will be hosting the brand new Design Market @ PMQ, an initiative created to provide a platform for the city’s emerging independent designers to showcase and sell their products on a regular basis.

To support the initiative, Hong Kong’s fiercest and most stylish movers and shakers have banded together to create a “Style-Off” ad campaign, not only by celebrating the featured designer’s own creations, but also by taking part in an editorial shoot with PMQ’s architecture as a backdrop.

From top to bottom, the participating influencers include, amazing fashion blogger, CarrieBloomwood aka. Carrie Kwok, writer Christophe Wong, the Refinery’s creative director, Elizabeth Lau, Vogue China’s contributing fashion editor (my girl) Grace Lam, stylist Jasmine Smith, and Art Director Kenneth Wong.

According to Design Market, the campaign was formulated to raise awareness of young and emerging designers and to give advice to the general public on how to “Change Your Fashion Perspective” by experimenting with new styles and designs (aka. HK there’s more to fashion than Giordano and Comme Des Garcons!) 

Different Designers’ key pieces are mixed and match to create unique bespoke looks for each of the influencers in the shoot.

Future dates for Design Market @ PMQ, are Sunday August 24, October, 5, October 12, November 2, and November 9, 2014.

#JJStyle: Three Words. MISCHA. Camo. Collection.

As a long time fan, friend, and supporter of MISCHA’s founder/designer, Michelle Lai, i’m very pleased to announce the arrival of an amazing new capsule line she’s created that’s adventurous, innovative, yet still very “on-brand”, dubbed The Camo Collection. 

The Camo Collection retains MISCHA’s signature hexagonal graphic prints, but splatters it all with a new fluid camouflage motif defined by a traditional muted green, but with vibrant pops of color to mix it up. With the new Camo Collection, MISCHA not only breaks out of the brand’s two-tone japanese-inspired motif of the full-on hexagon shape wallpapering the bags, but she may also have to get used to a new kind of clientele… men.

While there have been talks about a 100% menswear collection from MISCHA for a long time (and there still might be in the foreseeable future), this Camo Collection does a great job catering to both women and men who are already big fans of the MISCHA product and aesthetic. That said I expect the line to gain a few MORE fans as well. Much More. The look and the print is something I have not seen in the market, which I think only works here because of the hexagon pattern giving the whole print a really cool base to play off of.

To further celebrate the arrival of the capsule line, MISCHA collaborates with both Lane Crawford and Kapok to supply the shops with limited edition pieces designed exclusively for each store. A limited edition Messenger Backpack (not shown on this post) will be available at all Lane Crawford stores from August 2014 and a special Kapok version of the “Jet Set Tote” featuring Kapok-exclusive colourways and details will also be available at the same time.

I know what I want…  definitely “the Voyager Duffel”, its the best way to escape in style.

#JJStyle: 200 Steps With Canali - Behind The Scenes

JJ Acuna interview for 200 Steps, Canali.com from Canali on Vimeo.

Before I procrastinate even further this month, since i’m (as of today) quite backlogged on so much work in general… I wanted to put everything on hold and take a moment to give a big warm THANK YOU and show my gratitude to the Italian suiting brand, Canali, for reaching out to us all the way here in Asia for a secret project that we’ve been working on together since March 2014 this year... a profile collaboration for their global web portal, Canali.com.

The project, part of Canali’s 200 Steps series of videos and interviews published on L’Edizione, the brand’s editorial platform, aims to interview “male professionals” like myself from all around the world in a monthly series of videos and oral interviews examining each gentleman’s processes and craft. Each of the talent interviewed is dressed by Canali in tailored wear for that season, and is focused less on the 80-year old brand and more on the interviewees, their work, and inspiration.

Each 200 Steps story is created within a day’s shooting, and culminates in a 2-3 minute interview film, a 30-second “Word Association” film, and a full Q+A article explaining the full context behind each gentleman’s work. I was told that brand director, and a third generation Canali, Ms. Elisabetta Canali, picks the interviewees herself for the global website. I, for one, was surprised to have met her myself at the interview shoot here in Hong Kong. She’s quite cool in person, and was very “hands-on”… really overseeing the whole entire process.

image

For my story, Canali’s team wanted to focus on a designer-blogger’s thinking in relation to curation and the formulation of a story or perspective for the digital space. In order to express what I do and how this translates with tactility on film, their production team imagined a large square white canvas to hang centrally within the space… and throughout the two minute video, that canvas get’s filled with images i’ve taken over the years that have been placed on my various social media outlets thus far.

At first I was unsure, since i’ve only known my work to exist in a certain format online, and certainly not on a “white canvas”, however once i’ve spoken with their London team on the phone, and after they themselves have sent me mood board pegs of example “treatments”, portrait shots, and other reference concepts, I quickly got around to enjoying playing around with how they wanted to frame this whole thing to fit both me, my story, and their format.

Anyway, the rest is history as they say!

—————————

Some Behind-The-Scenes Photographs from our shoot….

The “White Canvas” at the start of the evening….

image

Gradually filling up slowly…

image

The canvas wasn’t allowed to sway back and forth, so the crew really took great pains to secure it on the set.

image

Each time a photograph was placed on the canvas, it was captured on film… sometimes two or three times.

image

The Director, Jon Clements, was really detail oriented as to the composition of the photographs on the canvas…

image

The production team at London’s Spring Creative, plus the brand team at Canali, picked out the all the photographs from all my social media accounts to be placed on this White Canvas. To be honest, when I started the website and the whole “Wanderlister” thing a few years ago… placing all these images online, there was no way I would have anticipated any of this to come to fruition from the content, that up to this point… i’ve only kept on the Digital Space.

Their team picked out the photographs to cover the five topics on my website; Architecture, Art, Design, Food, and Life/Style.

image

Taking a step back, seeing it all up there (I put up each of the photographs myself)… it was really something to see. 

image

To step back and have all these things jump out from the computer, and be composed in the physical space like this was really cool, weird, strange, and in a way… a general cosmic affirmation of the whole thing that I do. Very interesting how it takes a collaboration with a big global brand, to really force one to assess and define their work. I definitely did some soul searching by doing this interview with Canali. Most of what I said was off-the-cuff, which surprised even myself. It’s like “A-ha”, so that’s what being an Architect by day, and a blogger by night in Asia is all about. It’s even news to me.

image

So for that, I thank Elisabetta Canali, the whole Canali House in Milan, and the guys Spring Creative in London for such a great opportunity. I really learned about myself though all of this as well.
