That's a winter coat though, isn't it. The Raf and Margiela I posted are spring, and to be had on sale right now. (Not that I needed another ss coat any more than another fw one of course.)Btw I think Geller is almost an America-only operation. His Web site has not a single EU stockist. If it weren't for SF, I'm not sure I'd ever have come across the name otherwise.It's exactly the length that appeals to me. Although I admit I'm not sure how wearable/practical a coat that...
I'm probably not going to buy either, but curious what others think of these: I tried the black version of the fishtail on in store, and it looked great IRL, but I sure wasn't going to part with 1.8k(!) for what's essentially still a fairly plain cotton parka. Now the black one has sold out everywhere and I'm not sure what a snow-white coat will look like when it's been worn one season (or even five or ten seasons...).
+1. The wrinkly areas on your Butteros, @ike_hiking_boots, look exactly like the leather of my CP Achilles after a few weeks of wear.I am a little shocked though at all the bad experience people here have had with Buttero. I guess it's not so bad then the pair I was watching on Yoox sold out a few days ago. So far I only have a pair of woven-leather slip-ons, but haven't worn them a lot so too early to say.Does Buttero still make Dior Homme these days? I have a pair of DH...
I also have the denim (fw14) version. It's a nice coat. Didn't know there was a ss version.The denim one can be had in a size small on yoox atm:http://www.yoox.com/us/41631466HR/item#dept=men&sts=sr_men80&cod10=41631466HR&sizeId=4and in a size large on rayonfrais, but I can't link to it, you need to sign up to get access to their outlet.
washed wool - water-repellent - woven in Italy
I feel for you @jsd642, that sucks. So all that talk about "we help you out when PayPal doesn't" was just empty advertising. Probably they needed to have some ostensible new benefits to present when they introduced seller's fees. So basically the burden of proof is always on the seller, and selling history and feedback account for nothing...
I love elongated shirts but I think that a) elongated shirts come in versions a lot more elongated than that one (depends on body height I guess) and b) the triple collar looks kinda silly to me.
Interesting thread, don't think I've seen it before. Over the last 2-3 years I have sampled many styles as documented by my posts in the purchases thread.. When I started getting into the last one - Raf, Dries, and some Japanese/vaguely avant-garde-ish leanings - I was 100 per cent certain that I had settled on what I would wear for the foreseeable future, and anyway for many years to come. Lately however I have noticed that my interest not only in those Belgian/Japanese...
