Kinda surprised Leder doesn't get more love here, would half expect there to be a dedicated thread. Cuts might not be for everyone, but the fabrics and colors are consistently on point season after season.

fwiw, the guy behind FYMW is really an Italianate fashion guy, so his funniest posts and expertise are in that area. I'm not sure if he has much background he has in designer.

* Obviously this doesn't give a picture of my wardrobe in general since I had plenty of clothes to begin with; this is just, rather arbitrarily, my recent acquisitions of the last seven months or so.
I guess that's neither surprising nor provocative, but I did discover a couple of interesting things, since I knew all the amounts I paid and had a pretty good idea about most of the retail prices. Overall I've paid roughly 45% of estimated Canadian MSRP on my clothes purchases so far in 2012; a number of things were at full retail, but my best deals were 96% off a cashmere & silk hoodie, 92% off a BNWT YSL sportcoat, and 90% off a jacket fully lined in fur (those three were all eBay scores, for the record), which helped bring the average down a bunch.
All that said, on further reflection my most satisfying purchases were items I had to splurge a bit more on. I'm uncertain whether the first part is a function of the second part or it just so happened that the things I wanted most were not handed to me on a platter of affordability. But in the end, I've bought a bunch of stuff I really love this year and only regret a few purchases which were thankfully smaller ones in the grand scheme of things.

Always a good idea to splurge on outerwear and footwear. They always seem like the first things to sell out in my size so I don't like to sleep on them. I think I've bought maybe a total of 5-6 pieces of clothing this year. Mostly because I really don't need more clothes and combined with my general lack of interest in fashunz during the warmer months.

Never checked the brand before. Was quite impressed by some items. Some very nice looking hidden placket shirts in wool and a cardigan.
Looked like it was cut on the boxy side though. Anyone can confirm that?

It is indeed nice, I'll check it out soon. Not as boxy and cropped as before, sizes are bigger for us dudes now shah knows not of what he speaks.

Umm no you need to get out of that box. I will be copping a few pieces and successfully integrating them.

meant *was* still boxy I've no clue about this season quit hating jet foo.gif Although some of the looks on website are still nice and roomy.

Agreed that Leder is quite versatile though, I can think of plenty of different aesthetics to mix them with. Some of the fabrics are looking fanastic like always drool.gif am tempted to get cardigans but probably will just stick to trousers if I get a chance

Was just reading the Leder interview in "The New Order." This fall's collection theme is the emigration from Galicia. He found a bunch of old train tickets and what not and sewed them into the jackets, like how people sewed money into clothes for safekeeping.

Yeah, I thought the same thing about a year ago and then realize that gum sole achilles are gone. Which is too bad, they looked great and they should make them a regular part of their offerings.
