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.

Diary of a renovator: unplugged

Ever wonder why construction workers often seem on the verge of killing each other? In the past week I have been ready to race downstairs, hose in hand, to separate the half-naked men labouring to turn my dingy ground floor into a bright open-plan room linked to my office upstairs.

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.

Gold buttons

Bold and brassy, as spotted on Givenchy's jackets (right). Just don't wear them with shoulder pads.

Great for the boys, and cosy too.

You don't want to look like cartoon character Rainbow Brite.
