High tees

If you thought the Americans had the monopoly on luxe tees, think again. Launched in 2005, French brand American Vintage has become a cult favourite with fashion insiders. Now the brand has opened its first Asia store, in Hong Kong. The 700 sq ft boutique stocks the brand's complete line of luxe basics for men and women, including tees, trousers, jackets, blouses, underwear and accessories.

I am looking for the perfect pair of cigarette trousers that are super-fitted, cropped and tight at the ankle. Am thinking I may have to get it tailored unless you can suggest brands that have some?

Do any designers do high tops? I realise they can look dorky, so I want something more fashionable.
