The clothes in Korea are a little different to back home. Sometimes the English on the t-shirts makes no sense and when you find a pretty dress you go to look at the back and just see random frills on it. The clothes are normally unfitted and unflattering to westerners. The Korean’s can pull off anything. No matter what, they always look good! I had a t-shirt tailored to make it more fitted, which cost me ₩8,000. Paul had two shirts tailored which cost ₩50,000, which was a bit much, but the tailor done a very good job.

Why did they have to ruin this green top with the frills?
I have been to Gangnam station market for some clothes, accessories and to look for some shoes.  There are accessory shops everywhere, which sell jewellery, hair accessories, tights and even socks. They are cheap and not bad quality either. The only downside about some clothing is that it is one size fits all, or small, medium or large. However sometimes the clothes are elasticated, which is mainly the skirts and shorts. 


The shoes are measured in mm and it is apparently  hard, however to find shoes that are above a Uk size 7 in stores. You can get shoes made for you in Itaewon, however this will probably cost quite a bit. I also got told that the Korean shoes are not great quality and to not buy them if they are over ₩10,000 as they break within a matter of months. On the plus side, Converse are cheap out here (it’s even better when they are on sale £11.00).
