Shall I throw you over my shoulder and drop you on your fucking head?  I feel that that sleeve and lapels of your Devoa jacket would be perfect for grabbing. Also, the problem with @dieworkwear is that he saves up his sense of humor for the ToJ thread.
Hey, tiny fist face, stop derailing the actual fashion oriented conversation.  
I was thinking House of Arms, but that makes no sense either.
Is it bad that I have no idea what HOA stands for?  I never use acronyms for a reason - can't ever remember what they are supposed to mean.
I imagine that a lot of it has to do with the language barrier.  That, and up until recently, the strong Yen and a strong domestic market made catering to overseas buyers unprofitable.  The UK and the EU have much closer consumer cultures to the US than does Japan.
That's true, but you are here like the rest of us. so mostly, you are paying for someone to shop and ship to you, which is what most of us are doing anyway.  If I was in Japan, I could point and hand over money, just like every other gringo.
Likewise.  I'm hoping (against hope) that Jasper and I don't decide to wear very similar things on the same day, or else we'll just look like a couple of wankers.
I want this so badly.   Also, the sneakers this season are pretty intense.
On a bit of a tangent, I think that the Japanese had a much better PR guy than the Chinese.  My first exposure to this was in martial arts, not fashion.  Doesn't "Tai Otoshi" sound so much more elevated than "Throw him over shoulder and drop him on his fucking head."   I think that in specific cases, in expert hands, analysis of fashion can be interesting.  However, my original point was that artists are typically not the best people to speak to these points.  Critics have...
The human experience subjected to analysis using a philosophical model, yes.  My issue with these models, powerful though they are, is that they make trolls of us all.  We don't live in a tidy world, and we are typically not tidy people.  Even the most brilliant philosophers have problems describing specific parts of the human condition adequately, much less explain the whole human experience well.
