Too bad. I very much like their magazine. The Madison Ave private school dad and son articles are the best.

Nah BB1 is ODing like usual. You have to remember at the base it is trying to sell you expensive clothes or at least the belief that you deserve the lifestyle that expensive clothes frolic in. They usually consist of interviewing a few successful people in business (advertising, PR) or art (architecture, music). Next they go over a classic brand and what goes into creating a specific product of theirs, a few photoshoots for an on trend piece like "The slim chino". Mixed in with what BB1 said regarding travel and dining, which they also list somewhere on their site similar to the Big Blackbook's "respected establishment section" near the back. At the end of it all you have a how-to section and the interesting privilege of reading an article regarding a father raising his son through Private Elementary school and why he supported his love for his sons school performance of "Sounds of Music". At the end of the day I read it. Every week to be exact. It proves a nice balance between my favorite men's print magazines, Fantastic Man and 10 MEN.

Which is also true, All Saints is a shite mall brand.

Haters gonna hate. I like my DBSS rip-off hi-tops.

Also, I really hope someone got this, because I wanna see fit pics (from the Pleasure Principle sale on Gilt today):

^ That shirt is pinned to shit in the front. All the short scoop necks have a straight/A-line cut. But yes it is really dope.
post #38936 of 99213
I assume that by "dope" you mean "hilarious". I guess it would be slightly less bizarre if it was layered over another shirt. I was hoping they'd have tanks (sans laser-cut skulls in the back), but no such luck.

There are many online. I have been waiting to get my hands on one since the last Pleasure Principle offering. Glad I got one today. Not exactly versatile; but everyone needs a few weird impulse pieces. I would get far more uses out of the item if it were in "outerwear" form; but "Que sera, sera." Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Outerwear Can be used to flash a nicely muscled back/shoulder...or bones. DIY (the purple one is neat and will fit in just fine.)

Mr. J. Crew will enjoy this stuff. It is bland and inoffensive, the people being interviewed dress like him, and everyone appears to enjoy the finer things in life.

last time i went to the four seasons i ordered a burger. tasted better and was more filling than the blah blah blah french dish my friend got.

That doesn't really apply here...it's not like it's "Mr. Porter for J. Crew", is it? If you went to the Four Seasons and they had a Big Mac on the menu, and when you ordered it they went to McDonald's and brought you back a Big Mac, I think that would be closer to what Mr. Porter's doing. You ordered a burger at the Four Seasons, and the kitchen staff at the Four Seasons made your burger, and it was undoubtedly a very different and much better burger than what you'd get at McDonald's.
