Dandy & Dapper

I am looking for a short, slim-fit black leather jacket and have seen many but I'm yet to find something that isn't either prohibitively expensive (I know, this is Hong Kong ...) or fake leather. Any suggestions for a good-quality yet reasonably priced option? Many thanks. I am looking for a biker-jacket style.

While the dress may be the current go-to piece when it comes to getting ready in a snap, something new is slowly stealing its thunder - the jumpsuit. As many of us can't be bothered to mix and match our outfits every morning if it means cutting into our precious sleep time, opting for a jumpsuit is the perfect way to look chic in an instant.

If you think it's only over-the-hill rockabillies in Las Vegas who make a career of impersonating Elvis Presley, think again. To celebrate the 29th anniversary next month of the king of rock'n'roll's death, the local chapter of the Elvis Presley Fan Club will be flying in two Asian performers with their polyester jumpsuits and stick-on sideburns.
