Which jeans have the thick white thread design on the back pockets? White Lines, Kennedy Town The Dictator rules: You're kidding, right? The denim market is so vast these days you could be talking about any brand in any given season. But we'll bet you're thinking of True Religion's white thread Big T, with white stitching throughout the jeans and on its signature U-shaped embroidery on the back pocket. Or perhaps you mean the more prominent Super T style. Take a look at the straight-leg, low-rise Joey Super T jeans with back flap pockets (above; HK$3,380, True Religion, IFC Mall, Central, tel: 3101 0734). Another brand that does jeans with white thread details on the back is Rock Revival, which uses a reverse fleur-de-lis symbol (HK$2,088 and up; True Blue, IFC Mall, tel: 2111 8201). Now, brush up on back-pocket logos with the Jean Pocket Project at jeans.pbworks.com. I found a brand I love in Paris called Maje, which does perfect tops and dresses. Do you know where I can buy it in Hong Kong? Maje it Work, Central The Dictator: Why, yes, I do. Naturally. The good news is your favourite label is sold exclusively at Rue Madame, the French boutique that made its name by spotting the latest, hottest fashion brands. And that includes Maje, designed by Judith Milgrom. The bad news is it doesn't have a massive selection. Nevertheless, it has a range of Maje's unusual-yet-wearable tops, jumpers, skirts and dresses (about HK$1,700 to HK$3,500), with understated embellishments and military references, plus cool leather dresses, jackets and coats (HK$4,500 to HK$9,800). The palette is mostly neutral blacks, greys and camels, which mix easily into most wardrobes. Rue Madame has two boutiques: IFC Mall (tel: 2234 7880) and Lee Gardens Two, Causeway Bay (tel: 2972 2021). Other nonchalantly stylish French brands on its racks include Sandro, Toupy and Gat Rimon. I saw an amazing pair of party heels with ribbon ties at the ankles and would just love a pair for the holidays. Do you know where I can get some without accosting strangers? Wrapped Up, Tsim Sha Tsui The Dictator: Golly, gee whiz. You don't really call them 'party heels', do you? Don't tell me, you always carry a matching 'purse' or 'pocket book'. Well, I'll help with the shoes but you can forget about the matchy-matchy thing. You might not think of Diane Von Furstenberg for anything but wrap dresses but DVF's accessories collection includes Eva open-toe heels with 'foulard' ties that wrap around the ankles in black, taupe or multicoloured print (HK$2,400; Elements, 1 Austin Road West, Kowloon, tel: 2196 8477). Stuart Weitzman cleverly designs his with a fixed satin bow that you don't have to worry about coming undone and a partially elasticated ankle strap for comfort (HK$4,300; Gateway Arcade, Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 2118 2317). Alternatively, you could go for the bargain version. Nine West has a similar black satin, multistrap style called Jesenia (HK$895; IFC Mall, tel: 2234 7336). While you're shopping, visit Valentino, Lanvin and Steve Madden. And, ladies, if you wear stockings with open-toe shoes in winter, please remember the reinforced toe is meant to be kept under wraps.
