My kids have a class trip to a natural-history museum today so I felt this apropos if a little egregious:
Interesting perspective, as always. What is the transformative change that Gucci and TF are trying to catalyze?
Yes, i'm feeling down about it and I'm a big Hinkie proponent. The glimmer before of Embiid, Saric and Simmons, has now become, "Oh Saric is coming on strong the second half of the season, and we'll have to see with Embiid and Simmons."That sounds like a lot to ask for five years of historical tanking.I was on a flight yesterday heading out of Atlanta into Philadelphia, and ran into Randy Ayers. It reminded me of the heyday with Larry Brown (Ayers was the assistant)...very...
A page or two ago, the topic of Hedi starting his own brand came up again. It seems as though this would make sense, since his name carries equity and he has an aesthetic that sells, at least for menswear. That brings up a few questions, how big is the hurdle for someone already established in the industry, albeit through other houses, to garner the manufacturing, distribution, and marketing support needed to sell a brand? Also, does he go with Hedi, Slimane, or Hedi...
That can't be good. Isn't that what the GM is supposed to insulate the owner from; weird obsessions/flights of fancy?I wonder how Cousins feels about all this. Obviously there was an acrimonious relationship up there, but the faux assurances made earlier that day and the lost $$$ has to sting.On the other hand, I suspect Cousins may be more excited to play in NOLA plus to me they seem to have a great young core of Davis, Cousins, and Holiday.
To say that is strong photography is an understatement. I can see why Hedi wants to focus on the lens.
I picked up the Dior jacket. It's about a grand (reasonable for them!!). The fit is very slim, as you can probably tell. It's about as tight as my SLP denim jacket, but maybe a half inch or inch longer in the body. The sleeves are very RO in length. The distressing is pretty cool up close, but is not at all loud so very wearable.
The boutiques have been saying the new pieces are selling; I'm unsure if that's the party line, but they're usually straight up. E.g., one SA told me a few year back when Hedi took over that he was freaking out because he had to lose all this weight, haha. And later they were freaking quite openly when Hedi left, in terms of sales potential.
I've had a couple Dior shirts shortened, since they run a little long and I don't need them right away. I think I had the blood luster t-shirt tapered about an inch the first season, because I wasn't into the whole wide body thing. I get it done when I'm purchasing, so there's no charge, and it's not as though I need a t-shirt that day. Probably not wroth the hassle to send out and then have shipped back, etc.I wouldn't mess with the sleeves, since they're usually cut...
Would chime in on needhelp's point; I haven't found the blue denim jacket as versatile as I"d like, since I mostly wear blue and grey jeans. I basically only wear it with black jeans.
