About lace

British brand Marwood launched its debut collection a year ago and has found an audience for its vintage designs and traditional silhouettes. We're not sure how functional the mesh pocket square (left; HK$780) would be but we're definitely up for the cloud bow-tie (below; HK$1,400), made from traditional English lace. Marwood is available at Kapok, 5 St Francis Yard, Wan Chai, tel: 2549 9254.

Right foot forward

Without judging wearers of the easy, slip-on, uncomplicated, laceless shoe, embodied by JM Weston's leather moccasin (right; HK$5,445), there's something to be said for the striking elegance of the lace-up leather shoe (below; HK$7,625). JM Weston is in The Galleria, Central, tel: 2234 7288.

Carry your cargo

As an iconic menswear designer and now filmmaker, writer, art collector, stylist and more, Tom Ford sure has a lot of tricks up his sleeve. So, what's next? Before we get wind of his next endeavour, how about grabbing a bag (below; HK$12,000) of his divine design? Tom Ford is in IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2234 7802.

Plum pickings

Sometimes, you just need to return to the simple pleasures of a timeless classic. To do so, head to the Ralph Lauren store and peruse its Purple Label. We fawned over the classic suit (HK$46,600), with purple tie (HK$1,500) matched with a dress shirt (HK$3,550) and polished shoes (all right; HK$12,500). And we were floored by the cinematic elegance of the topcoat HK$62,800) and waistcoat (both below right; HK$8,900). Ralph Lauren is in The Landmark, Central, tel: 2869 0388.
