Hmmm... Just to clarify, I've not dealt with AL as a customer nor have I ever communicated with anyone at the store personally. But when people around work talk about AL they always refer to a "him". Maybe it's a husband and wife team?All I know is that the store is operated like no other and the people running it seem to know their customers well and know what they want.
I've dealt with AL. From what I understand he sells everything long before he gets it in the store. He runs his business unlike anyone else, he's a real individual.
I'm a little concerned what you're doing with a box full of my shirts.
Sorry but if Luxire is really making leathers in India, the inconsistent nature of TOJ will look like nothing in comparison to Indian factory leathers. I worked for a place where we worked with a few leather factories in India for a couple years before we stopped trying. They can make great samples and quote great prices. But the production quality looked and felt NOTHING like the sample every time. And the delays became unbelievable. Good luck!
The horizontal pockets take it out of the douchy-rock/moviestar-I-live-in-LA look and into a more historically-researched-garment place. It's sill a black leather jacket but is subtly more sophisticated. I like it.
Go to Hostem. Probably one of the best stores in the world right now. They're in the middle of redoing the store but I'm not sure if they've started yet. If it's out of the way, maybe call first just to make sure.
I will be in Paris as well... From Thursday night to who knows when... I'll be incredibly busy the whole time working a show/showroom but if anyone hears of anything good going I could do a meet/greet.
Do you have anyone in Paris during men's week?
Not to be a dick but those brands listed don't look good on chunky folks. Look at para with his CCP suit. He's barely overweight, maybe not even technically overweight but he's not stick thin and it looks not great on him. I've seen larger guys wearing RO and even though a lot of it is loose and "baggy" it still looks pretty bad. BBS or Julius are only built for super skinny. Maybe try some of the Dior jeans?
The worst is the subway tunnel in summer. Have they installed a/c in the platforms yet? I remember some cars on certain lines not having a/c yet (not all of them were changed over from the old cars) and those cars were hell-on-earth in summer. It was such a pleasure when they all finally changed to a/c.
