rick chicken just saw the u-n-i-ty convo. i don't know about 5-7 years ago, but in the last two years i've noticed it more and more. i actually like the brand. it is pretty basic, but i think they do a nice job of picking fabrics and doing subtle details, like raw finishes, exposed seams and that sort of thing. it's the cheapest brand at IF but it doesn't feel out of place, and i think along with barena and ten-c it's one of the best offerings on the co-op floor at...
figures...haha. remembered lusting over that one right after the show.
Oh man, you're doing those harmonized tariff codes. At one point I actually had certain codes memorized. "Ok, Mens' or boys' shirts >> Of cotton >> Other...that's 6205.20.3000." Such a pain in the ass.
Definitely true. Little things like the minimum order quantity set by the place that makes a brand's labels can cause this, especially with small brands that use expensive labels. The label maker the brand uses might have a MOQ that the brand feels just isn't worth the expense. They might need 100 labels but would have to order 300, for example. So if they have a new garment that's 70 cotton / 30 linen, but they already have a bunch of labels lying around from a previous...

Soloist Spring 15: http://www.thirdlooks.com/2014/10/thesoloist-ss15-lookbook/ the actual pieces are always way better than the lookbooks suggest, so while i'm not blown away by this i still think it could be great....
kinda related to this whole quality conversation, and also it's just pretty funny: http://www.complex.com/sneakers/2014/10/sneakerheads-dont-know-what-quality-meansthis bit echoes the point synth made:i think that's pretty accurate. in my experience when most people talk about quality they don't know what the hell they're talking about, except to say the person has a general impression that the thing is well-made, uses reasonably good materials, and that the person likes...

hey @novaliss, hope things are good! will definitely keep an eye out for this. and if I think of any questions I'll shoot them over.
hmmm...how do I contact a store in Japan with no listed email address to see if they still have an item posted on their blog? they have a phone number. guess I could try calling, but how prevalent is English in Tokyo?
