Custom Tailored Clothing in Hoi An, Vietnam | June 22-24, 2016

Mark would claim that we all (should) know that places like Express, the Express Outlet, or Express.com are a one-stop shop for lithe men who love bold fashion.  However, if you’re in SE Asia, where ironically, Express clothing is manufactured but not actually sold, where would you go for an “Express replacement”?

Early risers!  Shockingly easy street crossings! Interviews! Let’s keep things honest: we’re not typically early risers.  But all that changes when you’re a Philadelphian in Hanoi, living 11 hours in the future and breakfast time is when you would normally be finishing up dinner and debating whether to watch Downton Abbey or House Hunters International that evening.… Read More Hanoi | Day 2 | June 5, 2016
