I don't imagine that applies to outlets as the whole idea is that they off-load out-of-season remains at discounted price. My point was, I don't think that outlet prices, in Leccio anyway, drop even further during sales periods. Why should they? For an item that comes from a collection from years ago, there is no "end of season" any more.
Tissot hate is unwarranted especially if you want sth mechanical/automatic and under 1k. I think the first thing you need to figure out does your fiance prefer a mechanical/automatic watch as that will weed out a ton of options at that price point.
I'm not an expert but I get the impression from my own leather jackets that calf is less porous than lamb and hence less susceptible to rain stains. Would be interested myself though in hearing from somebody who knows more about this
Resurrecting my own thread to update on this garment. I kept wanting to have the waist slimmed a bit but was always reluctant to risk a high-end piece by entrusting it to some no-name alterations tailor. A few months ago when I had a trip to Rome coming up suddenly I had the idea of taking it to the Brioni flagship store in Via dei condotti to ask if they would accept to do it, even though I didn't buy it there (and not even from any Brioni store but a third-party...
"The Mall" in Leccio Regello (not too far from Florence by car) is one of the only, or maybe the only worthwhile brick-and-mortar outlet I have ever visited in Europe. Unlike most other so-called "designer brand outlets", this one actually has high-end designer labels. Admittedly prices mostly do not rival Yoox's. As I remember it, generally you get between 30-50 per cent off the original retail price, but to make up for it, you do get a really wide selection of...
I wonder why he felt the need to release that in versions with and without the grosgrain adornment on the storm flap:https://www.mrporter.com/en-be/mens/dries_van_noten/radley-grosgrain-trimmed-wool-blend-trench-coat/724733?ppv=2#Also, no offence to Romanians but... "Made in Romania". :-(
So I got a personal 20-per-cent off code from Yoox on the occasion of my birthday, and the subject line of the email reads: "Many Happy Returns (my name), we've got a surprise for you!"
Have made a couple of purchases without any problems. They don't seem keen on returns but then what retailer is.
I gotta say for a designer who has all but fallen out of favour stylistically around here, Raf's career choices sure get a lot of slack ITT.I didn't say he created the environment but he sure as hell has been contributing to it. I think it's a bit much to say "he has no other choice" - perhaps it would be more correct to say, if he wants to make $20m a year he has no other choice. I used to think that money wasn't the main draw for him, now I'm not so sure. Anyway, if you...
Sure, but my point was how does all that square with his appointment at Calvin Klein? You can't have your cake and eat it. There is a little inconsistency between yearning for a past when fashion, including his own work, was restricted to a small circle of super-committed freaks, and accepting what's probably one of the world's highest paid jobs in mass-market fashion. Arguably Calvin Klein is a mass-market brand if ever there was one. If he wanted to cater to a niche...
