Mainlander resupply mission to Hong Kong.

I'm living on the mainland now and will be going to Hong Kong to get my work visa in the next week. I'm hoping to find some notably absent supplies. Where can I buy

1) Decent spray-on deoderant.

2) A decently priced pair of Western brand [or well cut] jeans ($40-50, not $70-100) and perhaps some khaki's. Boxers would be cool too. Real ones, not the Chinese style.

3) Good, if obscure, books like Vonnegut and Spence's Chinese history books. Is there something akin to a Barnes and Noble attatched to one of the many Starbuck's?

4) Camera accessories like 55mm filters, wide-angle lenses, etc.

5) A beard trimmer.

Festival Walk at the Kowloon Tong MTR/KCR junction. It's a mall. They have a very good and expensive book store, PageOne. It's the biggest bookstore that I know of in HK. The mall will probably have some clothes that suit you as well.

Camera accessories: Try Mong Kok. Or just go to Shenzhen when you're back on the mainland and go to Hua Qiang Bei. Lotsa camera shops there with very good prices on low-to medium high end stuff.
