The prize package for best 80s outfit at our Happy Hour this Friday sure is heating up. In addition to a bottle of Solid XS Vodka donated by our host Freelance Bar & Grill, the lucky winner will also get two items kindly donated by the self-described “sexiest menswear store in Shanghai” — MANifesto. (We will force the winner to take a couple Shanghaiist T-shirts off our hands, as well.)
The MANifesto prizes are an Italy tanktop from Private Structure’s “Football Fever” collection and “Summer Heat,” the latest print design from Australian label DT Underwear. The latter sells for RMB 170 at MANifesto, which, by the way, is currently looking for models.
