You would probably elicit more favourable replies (or more interest anyway) with these items in the streetwear forum. Having said that, I am generally an admirer of all things Alex Wang but not sure about those shoes (are they even from a collection since he took over?).
Perhaps that I stopped thinking in extremes. A few years back, my options were more limited (not least financially speaking), and I have always been a difficult fit, so I preferred getting inexpensive suits from tailors in Asia who would give me a good fit - albeit made from cheap-ish fabrics - over getting a truly awful fit (possibly butchered even further by bad alterations) in an equally inexpensive department-store suit made from marginally better fabric. Nowadays, my...
I used to think like this; I don't any moreit's *at the very least* fit=fabricbut probably evenfabric>fit
I see what you mean but I think I'm going to keep it precisely because I don't think I can do better at this price point. Certainly not in terms of fabric, and in terms of fit, only if I commissioned sth bespoke.The least expensive no-name tailors I have access to locally take around 1,100 EUR for an SC and that's working with adequate - not outstanding - Scabal fabrics. In fact, I gave one of them a go once for a pair of trousers (at 250 EUR) and while the result is...
yeah that's the thing w/ being tall and slim - it's a size M which is the best compromise I can get in anything RTW. smaller and it's really way too short, larger and it's way too large everywhere. it was marked down from 1,859 to 740 EUR, so I guess at that price point I can live w/ the compromise. It's not Thom Brown-ish short anyway. What with most guys my age running around in fashion-forward cuts way shorter than this...
Alexander Wang wool-mix sweater don't know what season it's from infact it's YOOX and I hope it's genuine! on the fence about the fit anyway his sizes can be frustrating sometimes
women's R13:
Merino wool breathes quite well actually. It's been replacing synthetic fibres in a lot of sports/outdoor stuff. I've been trying to get away from (pure) cotton jumpers/cardigans but that's just me. It's the fabric everybody and I mean literally *everybody* wears all the time and often items made from cotton don't seem to age very graciously.
I received various items today including this Brioni SC am open to opinions (the trousers are straight out of the box, so not pressed yet, and the shoes will probably go back so they still have their tag dangling from them)
resurrecting an old threadgot this by e-mail a few weeks backnot sure how it differs from the RTW they announced back then, but the prices for this offer are now down to 415 GBP per suit
