Another of my haul from the "grail" tiny shop I found in Japan... same place I found N22 parfum, Mitsouko (vintage), Dior Dior (the long lost Roudnitska), Tiffany, etc. The only one I kick myself for not buying was a vintage bottle of Patou 1000 parfum that came in the gigantic superluxe box. I had so much juice at the time I was like, "eh, why do I need it?" and am now wishing I'd just have snagged it.It's really lovely stuff. Longevity is amazing... the crisp notes a...
I agree! I was thinking of the EdT so am glad you clarified. Yes, I love the Parfum and PdT for my own nose, but it's definitely not for the faint of heart... nor a great fit for a warm/dry spring/summer day.Wanted a classic chypre today, so pulled out my (pre-reform) Tiffany For Men. A really lovely scent that many of us love; it's sort of what Chanel PM used to be (and both made by the same nose around the same time).
Let me see what I can find! Yeah, I wish I'd had more space than a tiny apartment and could have kept/collected some of the stuff I had. Old school Helmut, Prada (and especially the original MIUMIU men's stuff, which was AWESOME), Jil, LOTS of the Japanese designers (especially CdG), and the old Dior Homme from the first collections through FOLLOW ME. I just recently sent to my friend my last pair of the original 1999/2000 Prada Techno pants.But, with changing jobs to...
^That sounds great! I think having that kind of service with customization at a good price is a definite need in the market. Wish you success with the endeavor!
^That one looks pretty nice (reminds me a little of berluti's famous brief). Based on many discussions here over the years, I anticipate a few questions that would be helpful using the above bag as an example: (1) What's the turnaround time and pricing, including shipping/custom duties to the USA? Obviously it will change depending on location/order/etc, but can you give us an idea what a "typical" buyer might expect to pay in total? (2) Would there be any chance to see...
Interesting, thanks! I wasn't familiar with Troubadour and so enjoyed reading that. Will have to take a look more closely at their goods. The keepall/weekender you posted at the end of your article is especially nice.The styling of the top-handle rucksack reminds me a lot of the 1990's minimal brands that really got me into fashion; for a 5 year period pretty much everything I wore was Helmut, jil, or the "real" Calvin Klein. The straps, clean lines, and buckles make...
^It's not BAD, but I'd definitely wait. I've not seen this particular bag in person, but overall I almost NEVER find the foldover/two-function bags as versatile as they claim. When a brand tries to do both, I end up using one more than the other, and then find the other unused function getting in my way. Instead of having two bags for the price of one, I end up having one that I don't really like as much as I thought. My general sentiment is... if you want a tote, buy a...
"Jeebus" and "no homo" in the same post? Zomg. Dogfish Head 90min IPA for a good standard. Not bad, not terribly fancy. Easily obtainable and a great one for a late afternoon. Enjoy it and enough with the pretentious brews. If you have to bribe a city official, meet a truck at the state line, or mortgage your house for a bottle of something... trust me, gurlz, it ain't worth it.
Interesting questions... I think having a removable lining is unnecessary... but in canvas/cotton is good to keep the weight down. The snaps and such will get in your way; trust me. Just have the textile lining sewn in (and perhaps opt OUT of any zipper pockets or other things).I'll reflect on it more and edit/update this post again later.But, overall, a leather outside with textile inside will be more than enough for your needs. The HAC design is classic and will serve...
Not crazy about the embossed croc; but embossed leathers are REALLY touchy and can sometimes be "iffy." IMHO, I think it's better just to offer standard leathers in assorted colors rather than waste the extra effort embossing an exotic hide that won't wear/show like the real thing. The Gadwall tote styling looks very good. I think especially in the nubuck/suede you offer it would look nice. Could you possibly show a pic of that? Btw, I'm placing an order for a pair of...
