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
Perhaps the fact that all three of those are now obsolete speaks to how well that kind of double duties works - for the designers as well as the houses.
*sigh* I know. I also know - from own experience - that (as @tgaith77 put it in the wardrobe-building thread) "garbage exists at all price points". With the exception maaaaybe of Dior and Brioni, every designer label I have ever bought/sampled/worn has included crap quality items. I have a pair of Lanvin sweatpants that retailed for >400 euros; it literally took less than two weeks' wear before they looked worse than the mall crap I wore as a teenager. Nevertheless, I...
Was just going to say no but apparently there is Chanel menswear: www.thefashionisto.com/chanel-presents-pre-fall-2015-mens-collection/ http://www.marquisoffashion.com/chanel-spring-2014-menswear/ https://www.therealreal.com/products/men/mens-outerwear/coats/chanel-linen-cashmere-coat What's more, most of this looks as if it was actually designed by KL (in contrast to all the menswear with his own name on it).
LOLI do find it amusing (and also a little disconcerting) when Hedi admirers in the SLP thread say things like "Nah, it's perfectly fine that SLP is prohibitively expensive but questionable quality, anybody who spends $$$ on designer fashion knows it's not meant to last long"...
Correct. Pyrex, Virgil Abloh's first venture into fashion, was repurposed Ralph Lauren rugby shirts that he famously bought for 40 USD and re-sold for >500. Off-White items on the other hand are all his own production.He's getting a lot of flak - for all kinds of reasons - but I for one quite like a lot of it. Don't have anything yet, but can see myself getting into it.
