As for logos, that's what bothers me most about fashion today.
Hey, I didn't say I liked
the logos, just that they're part of what currently makes for a high-profile house. Personally, I'm with you on this one, although I admit I like the Fake London "dollar" logo. I'm also with you on Loro Piana, but I think that firm has earned its rep for "quality Ã¼ber alles
," as you say, whereas Ferragamos wares, while very fine indeed, aren't quite John Lobb (which I would say is a good shoe equivalent of Piana's cashmere). As for Yamamoto and Slimane...they fit me fine. (But then, I'm 5'9" and under 160 lb.) Incidentally, I voted for Slimane, although that's because I'm currently so enamored of my new tux. For consistency, range, and a stylish blend of maturity and inventiveness, I'd have to give the nod to Armani (though nix on A|X and Emporio; I'm thinkin' Black Label and Classico). Giorgio simply cuts better than almost anyone else in the RTW world. Other designers make clothes that look more exciting on models and mannequins"”and I love those things myself"”but GA's clothes look amazing on real people. If I want to look sharp with minimal effort, I can just grab an Armani off the rack and I'm done. Of whom else would you say that?
