Just handled that minimalist denim at Machus, pretty nice. Denim is good too, like the slash lines
i dont like this 'designer* workwear' trend that kva and siki im are headed too. i do like the drop crotch denim tho
*designer as in high fashion
a small report from hm&mmm which released today (and though they didn't have everything, not even close, there was still some nice stuff):
black boots: these look just as good as in the pictures, fit tts, and leather is as good if not better than shoes for the same price (retail I mean)
white-painted boots: fit tts as well(duh) and honestly look way cooler in person than on pictures, really quite cool
white-painted jeans: these are just dope, will definitely get a pair if there are any left after christmas
camel-coat with inverted lapels: the fit on this thing is great, and construction seems nice enough
sneakers: comfy, tts, don't look as tacky as in pictures but still nowhere near the rest of the collection
fair-isle sweater: fit on this was kinda...I dunno...it didn't really look bad but it didn't fit like I had excepted it too (if you're interested in this I think you should definitely try it out first)
So yeah, this was a small round-up on the things I tried on, will go to stockholm on saturday so they may have a bigger selection there (especially hoping for the white leather-jacket), more impressions will follow in that case
Damn just went through the COS online store for the first time this season and man there are some nice pieces. Do you guys know when the pieces hit like 50%? Because I'd like to proxy about then.
Especially fond of the MMM leather glove rip offs and the quilted wool shirt. Lots of nice knits too, oh and dem gradients!
why do you say this about literally every collection you get into each month? do you have a physical aversion to paying retail? i understand you're trying to save money, but it's fucking cos, it's fast fashion which is already cheap.
We'll buy a lot of clothes when we don't really need em
Things we buy to cover up what's inside
Cause they make us hate ourself and love they wealth
That's why shortys hollering "where the ballas' at?"
Drug dealer buy Jordans, crackhead buy crack
And a white man get paid off of all of that...
Well yes I do actually, in fact the only things I've really paid full retail for in the past many months have been basics like tees or Uniqlo goods. Tell me, do you buy everything retail then? Please enlighten me on buying a full, well rounded wardrobe at full retail as a student, I'm very curious to hear how you do it.
While COS certainly isn't expensive as designer goods, considering the conversion rate the prices fall around most mid range brands that are popular here. And considering it is a rather large brand with a number of stores, I half expected there to be decent sales in the coming months and it made little sense to me to buy things now which could be had in a month's time for 30% less. Also, I'm not sure COS would quite fall under the category of "fast fashion" like H&M, All Saints etc, as it implies a cheapness in construction and material and a lack of ingenuity in design. COS imo has quite high quality stuff, and some of their designs are pretty damn cool and somewhat novel (I handled a lot of their pieces during my stint in the EU).
