post #100231 of 109053

I been wearing a pair of Aros Chinos from Norse Project, they are a looser fit with taper. My size 33 have a leg opening of 7 inches. They are heavy and well built. Caught them on sale at End for around 80 USD. Not bad.

Barena has a high rise pant called Braghier Bullo that is high rise, roomy thigh and big taper (Size 48 / 38 has 13 thigh, 7 leg opening I think)

They should come in heavier wools / tweeds but outside of ordering a bunch from yoox not sure how you would get them

Aros definitely aren't loose/relaxed in the thigh. Unless they have completely changed the cut since last FW they are pretty damn slim.

Thanks, I'll take a look. All of the looser Barena's I've come accross seem to have cuffed ankles.

I have a DAKS blazer and a cashmire overcoat (marvellous charity shop find) that I have had more than 10 years. Neither show much wear.

Lookbooks are now called dissertations and trunk shows are called office hours?

"Recovering fashion designer John Galliano has said his comeback will be “bigger and better” than before — and sources tell Page Six it will be with Maison Martin Margiela.

"Galliano has secretly been in talks to start a haute couture line for Margiela, which was acquired by the Diesel brand in 2002 and has been without a creative director since 2009, after its founder, Belgian designer Martin Margiela, left the business. But Galliano’s rep says he’s in talks with a number of brands, and there’s nothing official with Margiela."

Galliano battled severe bouts of anti-semitism, but with a supportive sponsor, and 12-step program, is well on his way to a full recovery.

... I thought Blazy was the head designer at Margiela (officially or not)
post #100239 of 109053
head designer and creative director are two separate titles, even if the roles can overlap. blazy is the head designer, but I don't think anyone technically holds the position of creative director at the moment.

edit: Margiela has also made a point of not highlighting any one individual designer, saying instead they're a collective. Not having a creative director was in keeping with that. if they hired Galliano as creative director it would be a big departure from that since 1. they would now have a visible acting head, and 2. it would be a very visible acting head in Galliano—basically a total 180 from their previous MO.

Yeah, that's why all the fuss about Blazy was dumb. The Galliano thing sounds like bs but who knows these days, maybe there's $$$ to be made in an official haute couture line. I mean, they already have MMM Artisanal which is pretty much hc for all intents and purposes.

Your hypothesis was correct after all!

Truly F/W '14 is the season of fast-fashion brands bringing baller sweatpants to the masses.

- Gap x GQ's En Noir (sadly, not leather) and John Elliot + Co
- Uniqlo x Plokhov (Unicloak?)
- H&M x Alexander Wang

Yeah the sweatpants thing is so annoying. We get the idea already; yes it's a nice little juxtaposition and yeah it's cool to have some luxury at the least expected times, but why haven't they taken the natural extension and just made proper wide leg trousers? They look better and you can do so much more with them without feeling the need to express that repeated theme of anti-fashion that people surely must see as tired by now?
