Also one of the most affordable places to live in the UK. I'm paying £560/month to live in a nice, quiet, reasonably spacious flat right next to the river near the city centre. This would be £2500 in London.
I see from your Facebook that you enjoy flannel shirts. Is this a popular style in Taiwan? I'm asking genuinely. You're not importing flannel shirts, surely. I assume that they sell these shirts locally.
I noted a definite increase in flannel shirts in Glasgow as compared to London. I chalked it up to the cooler weather in Glasgow as well as the more working class roots of the city.
Personally, I enjoy flannel shirts. For much of the 90s, I wore nothing but flannel. But the last time I wore a flannel shirt was about 1998. When the grunge movement ran its course, I didn't want to look hopelessly out of fashion.
So today, I still associate flannel with 90s grunge so I don't wear the shirts. Of course, grunge simply co-opted flannel from their father's generation of working class Seattle lumberjacks.
Nevertheless, what I decided to do to ween myself off of flannel is to just wear solid-colour button down shirts. It's a minor change but it works for me. Buying shirts is just as easy now as when I was buying flannel. And the shirts are the same. Style-wise, anyway. I suppose that flannel feels different but I don't care about that. A cotton shirt is just as comfortable as flannel.
