Well he did, shortly. You can still find a couple of pieces. But yeah I wouldn't mind a comeback.

How has your style evolved over time?

I guess it was a natural progression. When I used to skate alot I used to wear skate gear and shoes. I’ve been into sneakers and just adding on and refining my wardrobe. I don’t really like to be noticed too much because of my clothes. I like to be low key. I’d describe my style as “casual friday” with a twist. I wear New Balances all the time and be looking like a dad, you feel me?

What are you inspired by?

I guess I’m inspired by normality. I don’t really care about fashion but normal people inspire me. Day to day life and seeing people rocking regular clothes. I’d be inspired by to flip it and do my own thing with it. For example trench coats are being associated with business guys and formal attire but I’m gonna wear it my own way and throw people off. I really like clothes that are athletic inspired because of the sneakers and practicality but really I’m just doing what’s comfortable.

It's more the colors - If I lived next to a vibrant market with beautiful silks everywhere and tradesmen yodeling on every corner I'd be more inclined to bargain for fabrics and drape them all over myself. As it is, though, I'm not going to buy a Jcrew cardigan, cut the sleeves off, and hand it around my neck.

But, I could say that about any designer:

"If only I lived in 19th century Paris!"
"If only I was a member of the landed British Gentry!"
"If only I lived among the Mongolian reindeer herders, living my life as a nomad on the open plain!"
"If only I ran a 24h fitness on Dagoba!"
"If only I lived on a space station!"

Mmmh I don't really remember the runway show but the men's collection had some really nice kimono inspired tailored blazers and jackets, silk cropped trousers etc that made for pretty streamlined silhouettes, I'm guessing you're talking about the women's stuff ? And yeah, 70% of the appeal is in the fabrics / colors so DYIing it kinda misses the point.

I didn't even know he had done menswear, so I'm referring mainly to the  women's stuff. The appeal for Haider is definitely in the fabrics, though his most recent (and very excellent) collection has demonstrated his aptitude for a few tailored pieces. I've always been drawn to his darker stuff so the colours aren't as important to me, I guess. Nothing stopping you from buying womenswear pieces and deconstructing them for the fabrics though ;)

This was already posted in the Epaulet thread but I'm reposting it here because J Crew appears to be currently in the lead and I don't think any of us want that to happen. Please get out the vote, guys!

Attention sz S / 9US People

I will be putting up a large sale thread sometime this week, and attempting to liquidate a lot of the big pieces I don't wear as muh as I used to. If you're interested at all in the bigger ticket stuff (W+H all black varsity, electric blue Junya CdG jacket, viberg chukkas for a couple hundred less than retail) PM me (nudes) for preferrential treatment.

I will be accepting trades.
