What was the name of that black/grey blazer with a zipper on the lapels?
Found a plebe-copy, but figured I should atleast do some research and see if I can find the real deal in my size before deciding to maybe get the copy
Check again, they were doing something with their inventory this afternoon -- half my dreambox items looked sold out and couldn't be purchased from the item page though they still showed in stock (as if someone had just bought them all) but now they are back in stock and adding them to my cart works fine.
Which is kind of too bad, because when I thought they were gone forever I went and found an equal amount of crap I want to buy on eBay and elsewhere.
I think my one NY resolution will be to support only small clothing brands that, preferably, directly produce the garments themselves or by using local fair labor and rich heritage (sorry, for lack of a better term) materials:
Inverallan (although I am not sure if I actually need more knits from either)
Handknitting Association of Iceland
Brooklyn Tailors (For shirts, if I can get the fit right. Thanks, teger.)
Mister Freedom (although I already own a ton by them)
ROY Denim (If prices don't keep rising)
ARN Mercantile (if they are still producing)
Aero, Himel Bros., TOJ (if I ever actually buy a leather jacket)
Hmm, who else? Edited by zissou - 12/28/12 at 7:46pm
zissou you should buy some jeans from a local place that opened here - shockoe denim. it's literally one dude, his dad who used to work as a tailor, and a work room full of some fashion graduates sewing denim. i'm wearing a pair of their slim jeans right now, and I think the fit is fantastic. their selvedge starts around $200, MTM (alterations to the existing pattern) is $250ish and full on bespoke (custom pattern) is $600.
I need to start a thread, but the storefront is the factory.. really neat. will take some pictures the next time I'm there.
