In defense of Asian style, particularly here in Manila, there are actually several "trendsetters" and "fashionistas" around but do remember that 1) The climate is different. What might be trendy and "acceptable" around the world may be completely dumb to wear in this part of the world and 2) Not all the "good brands" are available, at least where I'm from. We don't have the complete or updated versions of stores (like our Topshop or Dorothy Perkins) and we don't have several others (like Forever 21). Also, 3) Some Asian countries are 3rd world countries. With no electricity or food, I doubt if anyone cares about fashion. That's why for the most part, the "jeans and t-shirt" combo reigns supreme for the masses. Yeah?

The weather plays a big vital part in my honest opinion. Here in Singapore, humidity and mr sun owns big time. I did tried layering and boy i almost had a bath on the streets. How i really wish the temp would drop to below 20degress. lol.

There's a few in Rise Commercial Centre in TST. Also in the Ginza Plaza in Causeway Bay....other than that, there really aren't that many at all.....

Lots of second hand jeans places though. There's a place in Tin Hau that sells lots of vintage (mainly mens though) but I can't remember what it's called or what street it is...I just know how to walk there....
