Isn't Miami all south americans nowadays? Having seen their Malls my guess would be 99% of them only know brands with huge logos and an assortment of polo shirts.


Copper is very popular in interior design and for wheels at the moment, so it might be the new thing in fashion as well.

There's also the noodles post and if you're in BK, definitely go check out Paulie Gee's (one of my favorite pizza places). Their Hell Boy, Cherry Jones, and Hellified Pork Pie White are all so good.

Oh and here's my posts from Random Food Thoughts, maybe you'll see something you like: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

Thanks so much! Very much appreciated smile.gif

Are we supposed to report video ads that auto-play, and if so where? There's this stupid Heineken ad that comes up on the right sidebar.

I say to that

Somewhat on the subject of NYC can anyone recommend some stores to visit? I'm going to NYC this spring and while I've searched a bit myself I have a bit trouble narrowing it down as I won't have time for everything. I'll probably be shopping a lot of basics at Uniqlo but aside from that I've been looking at Gentry, Odin, Steven Alan, Kith, Memes and Opening Ceremony - perhaps Outlier if I can time it with their open studio. Any recommendations where I find the best deals/most interesting things? Generally looking for stuff not as avaible in Europe (or at least a bit cheaper), but specifically it'd probably be black boots, pair of sneakers and a nice 3-season jacket that I'm looking at.

 

Also, third time visiting so suggestions for anything fun/interesting to see are welcome, as I think I've done most of the generic touristy stuff. :)

Sounds like most people and places in general 

 

On another note, the other day on FB, I found an old friend I used to play mmorpgs with, from Australia. Apparently he knows about Styleforum.

someone just asked about nyc about a month ago, search for those recs

 

also, has anyone been to the re-opened Atelier? do they still stock CCP?

post #105145 of 109053

Really don't think OC is worth visiting. But there are a lot of stores in that area from BiG to IF. Also is Atelier not gonna have a webshop again?

How do brands have such inconsistent sizing? Even within the same season and same style? I could understand it if you have different pieces made by different manufacturers but when you are your OWN manufacturer how does it happen?

this was the last brand list on their site before they took it down. no CCP or BBS anymore. haven't been over there yet and probably won't unless I find myself in that neighborhood for some reason.

It's hard to say unless you can tell me what brands you are talking about, but some brands vary in sizing because they are doing extensive post-construction treatments, and it is difficult to gauge the amount of shrinkage, and especially to gauge the amount of shrinkage between sizes.  Usually, for the sample size, a garment dyed piece will come come more or less to spec.  But for much smaller or larger sizes, you can be off a fair bit.  For example, washed leathers are a huge PITA to attempt to size.   In MA+, for example, I come out to a 52 in some of the bikers, but for the one single one that I really want, it looks like there were more extensive treatments, and I come out to a 54, which is crazy for a 5'11", 180 lb dude.  Wool also shrinks, cottons shrink, and everything shrinks differently in different directions.  And there is only so much time and monye for research.  It's not financially feasible for a smaller company to test shrinkage on a full size run.

 

I one tried on a size M leather jacket from KZO that fit like a 34 or 36, tops.  At that time, I was maybe 160 lbs, and I felt like I was going to hulk it.  That was because it was a sample, and the shrinkage was a full 1.5-1 sizes.

It coukld be that they are not allowed to say, especially since they are also carrying a lot of "mainstream" brands.  Personally, I am glad that they are stocking a more eclectic set of brands.  I'm personally looking forward to seeing what they do with Golden Goose, which is really "Italain interpretation of Americana".  Sorta like number (n)ine if number (n)ine was an Italian brand, and the inspiration was random Hollywood and Brooklyn style hipsters.
