What I take away from that interview is that women tend to be ok with individual items from just about any of those styles, provided they are toned down by an otherwise more neutral/less conspicuous outfit, so you don't look like wearing "fashion with a capital F". Isn't that their general reaction to just about any of those looks? "Yeah it's fine if you take a piece or two from this, just not head-to-toe please."My own assumption about the underlying reason for that is...
No doubt, totally with you on that. Unfortunately for some purposes it just isn't practical not to able to wash your trousers yourself.
To be fair, that's a Japanese price. It probably costs half that in Europe.(Still a lot for a linen coat, I know...)
shit you're right my biggest worry with these kinds of things though is that in the general heat and rush I buy a lot of crap, only to find in the evening I've spent 1k in cash and have a pile of old polo shirts to show for it especially as I don't live in Antwerp, so there's a severe risk of buying crap just to not have made the trip for nothing I guess if you're super-self-disciplined... Margiela sample sale is closer to home for me, maybe I do that one, hoping it...
The leather itself certainly, the lining, maybe not...@estranged, I agree with others who have recommended waiting. However, I know from my own experience that it can be extremely difficult, bordering on impossible, to develop one's own taste/understanding/expectations without actual consumption, and without intermediate steps - even though in a year or two you may well end up wanting a Rick Owens jacket for $2000, I doubt that a thousand posts on here will convince you to...
Quick question from a European: Do the US and Canada have a customs union (through NAFTA or whatever)? In other words, if I ship sth from Canada to the US, will it get checked/opened by US customs?
Yoox made a mistake ^there. It's SS15 CdG Homme Plus, just found a runway shot of what you kopped: http://www.vogue.com/fashion-shows/spring-2015-menswear/comme-des-garcons/slideshow/collection#6 The pattern/idea ran through the whole collection, like in this T-shirt also on Yoox: http://www.yoox.com/us/37781770JO/item#dept=men&sts=sr_men80&cod10=37781770JO&sizeId= I vaguely remember seeing a fit pic of sb wearing a piece from the collection on gr^iled; I believe it...
"Lemaire"? Surely this is CDG? Yoox has the "coat" to go with it, if you can call it that:http://www.yoox.com/us/41597203SK/item#dept=men&sts=sr_men80&cod10=41597203SK&sizeId=...only $1.7k. Quite reasonable, considering the tremendous quantity of fabric that went into it...
I would like to like Paul Smith - in fact I do like some of his designs not to mention that his knits are often Made in Belgium which I highly approve of - but in general I wonder if his is the label you should turn to if you're a stickler for quality. I like some of his shoes design-wise for example but have been held back by a friend of mine who has a very low opinion of Paul Smith footwear quality.
You're probably not looking any more now, but there is a pair of white Achilles Retros in 47 on Yoox at the moment:http://www.yoox.com/us/44995037TS/item#dept=men&sts=sr_men80&cod10=44995037TS&sizeId=19
