I find that somewhat doubtful.

Not many trust fund kids were as rich as her to start off with, and no, most of them couldn't. That's not the point is it?

Let's take a second here to think about what businesses she's run:

- reality TV show. Made money out of the fact she's rich and famous.
- perfumes. Made money out of the fact she's rich and famous.

Now obviously a lot of it comes down to being smart enough to hire the right people, but this is business. It's pretty easy to make money if it doesn't matter if you fail - just move onto the next project. Just don't blow all your money on cocaine or whatever else those morons do.

Is there anything she's done that's actually impressive? Why is simply making money impressive?

Has she done anything that takes actual hard work, intelligence and dedication?

A celebrity selling perfume is not impressive. Every female celebrity I can think of has a perfume line and each and every one of them is extremely profitable. It's a lucrative business. The markups are extreme and all you need is a name and the ability to hire some faux chemist.

Is there any way to get those CA4LA hats to Canada? Farfetch has a selection but I specifically want that linen one and seemingly no one sells it to NA and CA4LA doesn't ship international. I own a different style one already and it fits great. I just ordered this one from Farfetch for too much but, if it works, all is well.

Some folks out there actually do need hats.

Not straw, but this linen one was also nice:

Also this Reinhard Plank one is awesome:

Both are pretty casual, don't feel so "farmer"

thanks, I like the first one the most.

what about these?

(click on the little blue and green shoe on the right side of the screen)

 

If shoefitr decided to use their database for a phone app - it would be the most useful thing

 

So a quick update, these guys were just acquired by Amazon

I wish I could "rent" one of these Junya jackets for a month, look cool to me now, but I know I'd get sick of them pretty quickly and $1500 is too much to blow on a whim

Pfft 1.5k. The heavily patched-work shorter jackets and blazers were clocking in at 2.5 - 3k at MAC.

I like the first one you posted. If you end up not getting it let me know the link. Very farmer-y which I like.

I have an EG hat on the way. I will let you know if it doesn't work out.


edit: nevermind, I found it. Perfect, need a daily one I can trash to hell. The Brixton hat I bought last year is now a weird brownish red color and completely fucked from all the farm work

So you too felt a flash of cognitive dissonance as you discovered Urban Outfitters carries a stash of very serviceable and very cheap hats?

There has to be a darkside to this. Like maybe the straw was soaked in arsenic or something.

You have to think of Urban Outfitters like Zara.  It's trendy clothes that are available better, but for much more, somewhere else.  I'm generally not a fan, but honestly, if I want something fast, and tracking down the original means weeks or months of work, and it's not a piece I want that much, I'll go there.  

 

I remember that they had a copy of the Lanvin cadet hat I have, and now they have versions of the Ts(S) engineer caps, not that an engineer cap is anything new.

You know, it's really weird, and I hate to admit it, but I hesitated before purchasing. I wear a lot of cheap stuff, too, especially Uniqlo, and I know that I wouldn't really have even thought twice if it was Uniqlo. It doesn't make much sense, I guess I justify it by thinking that there's not too much Uniqlo wearers around me.

I remember a while back, I was wearing this nice J. Crew shirt, a pattern I really liked. I was browsing records and in walks a guy wearing the same exact shirt with some nantucket red shorts, he looked at me and said "Well this is awkward." I didn't really care about it, but it's nice to have stuff that not too many other people have, you know? I am all for accessibility of clothing, but I am also very interested in not looking like everyone else.

When it comes to bold patterns that I like or pieces that stand out, I kind of prefer exclusivity. Maybe that makes me a donger, and I don't really walk around thinking I'm better dressed than everyone else, but it's nice to be the only one walking around in a dragonfly patterned shirt or a giant cosmic wonder coat? It's a feeling that's hard to explain, I guess.

Rent-a-swag!

I'm with you. the patchwork stuff is cool, but it's kinda so overthetop that it would be one of those "oh, wearing the patchwork jacket again I see" kinda things. I actually bought the more toned down officer jacekt which is color blocked but not boro-patched out.

My closet is so small and I'm so boring this is a major consideration when I make a purchase. If I can't wear something a couple times a week it gives me serious hesitation

Which jacket did you pick up? I was in CdG a couple minutes ago (which I hate to do - why is it the only store in Japan with such cold sales staff??) and this one looked very nice, as did the white ones where the patchwork doesn't stand out as much. Very strong season for Junya, construction and quality is just absolutely amazing - makes Margiela and Jil at the same price point look like H&M

Edit: just googled and saw that there is indeed one called the Officer Jacket - looks great! Never saw it here, a lot of it sold out fast

this is the one I got. I understand about closet space. I've got limited space, so I try to only hold on to the stuff I will wear a lot.
