lol at the dude who thinks the OL collection is bad...i'd say this is easily the best one yet, though I think SS16 is just is good, possibly better? hard to say.
weird. I guess maybe it makes sense if you don't live in a major city, but for me i think most of the fun in looking at clothes these days is looking at second hand and vintage and looking at unexpected labels.
those cole haan boots seem good in theory but that leather looks like caca and the proportions are off. would be interested to see in person, maybe I'll swing by the soho store.
eh sorry, not really directed at you, i'm just railling against the anti-graphic/logo/branding sentiment.already posted in music thread but guys: go listen to this new protomartyr album.
still not sure where you guys are finding all this seriousness and pretension in this brand. the brand is mostly presenting pretty simple garments but I think there are a lot of fun ideas at play. i dunno try tapping through a show; a lot of the looks are 2 pieces, simple tops and pants with weird proportions or weird details. that doesn't seem like pretension to me. that seems like a pretty direct presentation of clear ideas. do you guys think the collar embroidery...

what's called a convertible collar, is like a camp style shirt where you can wear it with the top button open and the placket has turnback that creates a lapel or you can wear the top button closed and it cuts straight across. usually where the top button is or the button placket is slightly offset so that when the top is closed (often with a loop at the highest button set back) you get a clean square look versus open the placket turns back and creates a little lapel...
