Nathan Road

Root rot epidemic covered up, experts say

The government has been accused of covering up the spread of an incurable disease that is killing Hong Kong's heritage trees and of failing to contain the infection, putting many more trees - and potentially human life - at risk.

Stop excuses and get on with arts hub

Michael Lynch, CEO of the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority, informs us that the 'basement is a complicated issue. It goes all under the site' ('Arts hub seeks more cash for basement', July 26).

Expansionist Anglicans channel HK spirit

When developers tear down heritage sites, they are out to make a buck. But when churches do the same, behold, they are doing God's work. So shut up.

Dandy & Dapper

I rarely wear a tie and tend to dress casually, but I hate cheap quality. My favourite T-shirt brand, for example, is Sunspel, which I haven't encountered yet in Hong Kong. Any ideas?

On style, she rules

In the past few months, I have noticed several people (men and women) walking around Hong Kong wearing Toms shoes. From time to time, I look for shops that sell Toms, but I never find any. Ordering on its website doesn't work, as it doesn't accept our lack of a long address or our eight-digit phone numbers. Help?
