Trip Preparation: G&G Tailors

On first appearance, G&G looks like any other Chinese laundry, a simple storefront with two changing rooms. Believe it or not, G&G is one of the best alteration tailors in New York City.

Run by Angela, G&G alters things to perfection and I trust them with all of my clothing. A few weeks ago, I decided to have removable buttons on my Isaia jacket. After a long wait, I finally got my jacket and am pleased with the results.

Here are a few other pieces that she has worked on for me. Every single one of them are immaculate.

Again, I trust Angela with all of my clothing. If you ever need to get something done, do not hesitate using G&G.

Trip Preparation – Part 2: All Packed

I am all set for my two week trip to Europe. Last night, I nailed down my train tickets and finished packing. I travel with some hand-me-down luggage from my parents (I guess I am really super-duper Chinese).  It has been about 6 months since I last traveled and I hear Europe during fashion week is a pretty fun time.

Trip Preparation – Part I

I am not sure on what to pack for my trip to Europe in January.  For a 15 day trip I will have to use two check in bags and a carryon.  I always tend to travel light, but I don’t think I can do that this time.  The suitcases I have are not particularly big and they happen to weigh a ton.  Here are some of the items I plan on jamming into my suitcases:

  • 5 jackets
  • 3 suits
  • 2 coats
  • 4 pants
  • 1 down blazer
  • 1 parka
  • 7 pairs of shoes
  • 10 shirts
  • 4 belts
  • 3 hats
  • 3 pairs of gloves
  • 3 scarves
  • 5 pairs of socks
  • 10 pairs of underwear (yes, I will re-wear my undiez)

How am I going to do this…
