Where are we in the styleforum / iGent MC hype cycle?

post #1 of 660
Thread Starter 
Some of you may be familiar with New York Magazine's hype cycle. Here's the SF version, and you fill in the boxes:



Some of my own impressions:

--------- Pre-Buzz: Structured shoulders
--------------------- Buzz: Non-silk ties
--------------------------------- Rave Reviews: Loud sport coats
--------------------------------------------- Saturation Point: Knit ties
--------------------------------------------------------- Overhyped: Longwings
--------------------------------------------------------------------- Backlash: RL Black Label
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Backlash to the Backlash: mafoofan


What's your hype curve?

ugh i bought my rlbl when it was at rave reviews, so sad that its at backlash now. kinda want to sell it but know no one will buy it cuz its black. i think black is going to make a comeback soon though, and hopefully when it does itll comeback along with rlbl.

Black RLBL is the new Tom Ford.

I don't do hype- and I laugh at those that do.

Saturation Point: Double breasted Actually, that should probably be "Overhyped," but there's still some time left. Spring 2010 menswear lines have still been showing DB in abundance.

Pre buzz: Standard four fold ties Saturation point: patch pockets Backlash: Big tie knots, contrast collars, pick stitching Not sure if we're in the "backlash to the backlash" stage yet for some of those
