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.
Honestly, this is slightly neurotic if you ask me. It's the kind of "flaw" that any shoe or garment will get as soon as you have worn it outside even once. And I'm saying this as someone who obsessively babies his stuff...
Rail have a couple Haider Ackermann pure-silks on sale, in a nice houndstooth pattern: http://www.railso.com/en/scarves/6030-haider-ackermann-bordeaux-beige-pied-de-poule-silk-foulard.html http://www.railso.com/en/scarves/6029-haider-ackermann-black-white-pied-de-poule-silk-foulard.html
^Interesting as well. Not sure that one's really reversible though (pockets, label tag in the neck, ...).
The .gif image was in a newsletter I received from the official Web store. It's this jacket: www.alexanderwang.com/us/shop/men/jackets-and-outerwear-jackets-and-outerwear-reversible-leather-jacket_cod41622705is.html "100% Goat Suede + 100% Sheep Leather"
Same here. Probably most people do on brand-new suede shoes. More interesting question is, how often do you renew the spray protection? I tend to forget about it until the same season begins again, i.e. once a year, which is probably way too irregular...
I like the ones that Christopher Raeburn does, like this one on Yoox right now:http://www.yoox.com/au/41624779WA/item#dept=men&sts=sr_men80&cod10=41624779WA&sizeId=4I have one quite similar to ^this one and was very satisfied wearing it during a trip to China this past winter.
Really? What makes you think that? Just curious.
Yes, Elmo toilet-dancing = hours of entertainment. I have to admit I stole it myself when somebody posted it in a song discussion in the Radio Paradise forums.Back on topic, the objections are all true. I have a suede T-shirt (also Wang) and wear it almost never: When do you wear a T-shirt that only makes sense wearing if it's not concealed by a knit/sweater? In high summer, exactly. And what do you (or I anyway) do in summer? I sweat profusely, and who wants to take a...
I'm a sucker for reversible pieces, even though experience with reversible outerwear/knits has taught me that after a couple of weeks of experimenting with both sides, I usually settle into wearing only one of them. Sometimes because one side just works better for me in everyday usage, sometimes purely out of laziness (because turning the garment inside out is too unwieldy/complicated). Most importantly, a reversible jacket is effectively an unlined jacket, and I have...
