Hello,
I'm thinking about visiting HK for a bit of clothes/shoes shopping. Can anyone tell me some good name-brand outlets, such as Levis, Keen Shoes, Reebok, Dockers, and other places for quality t-shirts/polos, jeans, khakis, shoes? Here on the mainland, the quality of clothes is extremely cheaply made and overpriced (Damn VAT!). I've been reading about Causeway plazas or some place like that.


Cheers,
Aaron

Tsim Sha Tsui, Mong Kok, Causeway Bay and Central are the main shopping areas. You can't really go wrong with any of the big shopping malls if you are looking for branded stuff.

HK was, in my opinion, always overpriced for shopping. We would always do a shedload on our yearly holidays back to the UK.

Really depends on what you are shopping for. For example, I've always found that shoes from main brands (Nike, Adidas etc) were cheaper than in the UK. Just head to Mong Kok and shop around.

Apple stuff is also significantly cheaper in HK than in the UK. Camera lenses (esp Canon) also.

I second on electronic devices of any kind. I highly recommend Fortress, a chain, where between my wife and I we bought two computers and two phones, if I remember right, over the course of five years. Don't buy in China; no telling what sort of spyware comes pre-loaded.
