That's what I meant. I believe she also styles for Li? or was that only for FW14 Dreamer

They seem like a great deal, but did anyone who ordered in the last 3 months ever receive theirs? I read about a manufacturing fubar that delayed shipping interminably, which sounded all too familiar. But maybe I have some outdated info.

There is/was a couple of pairs up on G R A I L E D in the the size 8-10 range iirc so people have been receiving them.
I'm planning on ordering some of the beige suede welted ones pretty soon.

no idea what kind of margins haider ackermann is getting but i imagine the really beautiful geometric fabrics that cost a fortune this season probably also cost a fortune to buy. custom-made in relatively small quantities (guessing this was the case) = $$$. some of the other stuff like knits aren't too expensive at all. not as well-priced as Dries but attainable on sale at least. (edit: this of course doesn't apply to the more basic coats and stuff like $1k washed cotton sweatshirts which are nice and all but c'mon). one thing you can say though is that you can't get anything like those pieces from anyone else. yang li's pricing confuses me a bit. he's a really good designer obviously but i don't know that the clothes warrant the price tag.

michele montagne is really interesting. i'd heard her name associated with people like ann, haider, rick, and helmut lang but didn't realize how involved she was. worth a read: http://www.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052970203358704577237353242784594

I ordered and received the black cemented sidezips within a week.

Have you visited their site recently? I visited a few months ago, and IIRC, was able to order back then. Visited again recently and I think the store part of the site has been taken down? I don't think they're taking orders at the moment.

RE: Story et fall

I was just in contact with the owner yesterday and he tells me they are discontinuing the cemented models and are taking orders for the next batch of welted models. They are quick to respond through email.

Nephew, I suggest some Aldens.

 

No, for real.  Or more in line with your style, some Buttero sidezips, which are not C. Diems, but they are solid and look good.

I second this, Buttero makes solid boots. No man walks alone has a nice reverse leather.

@LA Guy, I think it's only fair that you updated sinnedk's accordingly foo.gif

Also,

@Mr. Moo, ninja please.
