I suppose it takes a bit of that to post pics of yourself in front of a mirror on the Internet For what it's worth, their Tokyo store is sensationally named "M'Arijuan"
Stumbled upon the Studio D'Artisan store in Osaka last weekend while doing some New Years traveling and am a firm believer in their menswear brand ORGUEIL now. Everything made in Japan, top quality 1930s style Americana gear and fits really slim - a 38 on my wiry frame was perfect. Honestly fills a similar niche to FW14 Junya but unsurprisingly costs much less. Couldn't resist and bought their 'Old Surge Jacket', fits like a dream and is pure quality, as you'd expect from...
Been deliberating over this for weeks myself. My wife like Sorel Chayennes but they are too utilitarian for rainy days in the city, my preference being for the classic Hunter wellies. At any rate I am not allowing myself to suffer another Japanese rainy season without proper footwear.
The navy shell boots are pretty. My new commando stows came in last week, I love em.
It looks fantastic.
This latest episode was such a disappointment. I liked the opening scenes that showed some parts we never saw in the books, Sansa's part was really well done as well. It's clear that, thank god, parts of AFFC and ADWD are being set up for some streamlining. But the fight at he end was just poorly done. The Mountain didn't look threatening at all, no where near the level of infamy he had. He was slow as molasses. The death was well gory and befits the way this series likes...
The Warlocks that Dany had to escape from also clearly had some supernatural powers, though they were amplified by the option she drank.
Having looked at the options my choice would be split back and yoke, both.
What do you think of the weight and thickness of the calfskin used on the Margiela 5 zip moto? It's pretty thick, but it's not as stiff as Vanson's comp weight.I might go with the z150 leather. The veg tanned horsehide sounds great but throwing an extra 400 out for it is too much for me these days. I think Thurston refer to z150 as "light comp"
You must have an 07 model then. The 07s were really heavy - the heaviest of any of the collabs, and it was the only year that used CdG-supplied leather. It had camo lining like the 08s, but the 08s were a bit lighter and had a little bit of a sparkle to them.
