This is so spacey, and probably looks more complicated than it was, if I can believe your review. Also, it looks like the right kind of thing for Hong Kong, a little formal around the collar but spaceage modern for running through Admiralty Tower or up and down the Hotel Victoria's escalators!

This is a really cute vest. I must have missed this one in BWOF so I'll have to go back and take a look. I agree, it has a space-age look to it. You did a great job. Thanks for the review.

What an unusual vest. At first I though it was leather. It does look very complicated. Great job.

That is really nice. I thought it was leather at first. The collar gives it that appearance and it is the kind of thing that you would see in leather. Super.
