Hong Kong (Day 3)
I’m totally spent after three days of shopping. You just can’t send your wife to do it for you when things are custom tailored.
Today I dipped my toes (so to speak) into buying custom made shoes. I bought them at 10:00, was measured every which way at 10:30, and back at 2:00 for a fitting. They will be home when I return.
Although the styles are similar, I selected a black, gray, burgundy and brown pair. The skins are baby crocodile, lizard, eel, and stingray. The shopkeeper assured me everything was politically acceptable. I guess they all came from nice, non-abusive homes.
