because $250 is still a lot of money for a pair of purple chinos. edit: i should also say, i'm in love with the cut and fabric. i'm not sure how i would make the color work or if its too fashioney/flamboyant.
tried these trousers on a while back at lanvin and fell in love but couldn't justify the $500 price tag. found them for nearly half off though.. not sure if i should or shouldnt. even though they're purple, its really really dark and the material is so soft and comfortable.
awesome article. its unfortunate but this happens in music and art as well. i've seen well known musicians being turned away from their own parties. all this fashion party guest list stuff is an illusion though. an imaginary hell for all these people that hate each other to grin and pat each other on the back. btw, how did you 3 fit into a 1 bedroom apt? lol
