This is horrible news. Hope all turns out well.

Sadly, the original is not my photograph, but taken by a man named Eliot Shepard

 

Apparently conceptual florists have all sorts of hobbies

lol. Okay, so, now that you've gotten the laughs out, someone give me something with some wit. Actually, you know what? I'll maybe take some pictures at the Jun Hashimoto booth next week. That guy has serious credibility, and he is a really nice dude (Downtown in SF now carries some of his stuff, though not the really good stuff), and his attitude towards "artisanal clothes" probably confound the shit out of people who are are all serious and dark and probably read Goethe to get their dark on. Or maybe I'll leave the picture as is, so that you guys can bitch and complain about me.

It's actually a chisel toe. They are usually slightly elongated, giving a more "elegant" profile than a round toe. They were/are really popular with European makers. Roundtoes have really only become fashionable with the increasing interest in American brands like Alden. They (round toes) were, for a long time, considered rustic, clunky, etc... with these terms not having positive connotations.

Probably because people love posting their new stuff.

Yeah, seriously, get anything goth ninja out of your system. While some of it is okay, and the leather treatments are really quite interesting, I've gotten pretty sick of that whole scene. It's just so boring. When your ability to be interesting is limited by the amount of navel-gazing you can do, you are probably going to be a seriously dull person. Of course, let's not put Yamamoto, Issey Miyake, Ann Demeulemeester, with those. I think that Ann actually explicitly disavows any association.

But I'm already halfway through the reddit guide!

I still maintain it's likely that the out of character SW&D landing image was chosen due to commercial interests. To quote Hudder's founder....

From a business perspective, our partners have a professional sales team working with small/medium businesses for site sponsorships in addition to growing representation to large international brands. Major advertisers and agencies are getting more and more comfortable with social media and user generated content, so we’re ensuring that we’re part of that conversation. Our team’s expertise in this area recently landed me a seat on an 8-person Digital Strategy Board for Unilever, the 2nd largest advertiser in the world.

In order to get large companies to advertise on a forum, you have to provide them with the demographics and image they're looking for. What is this commercially desirable image? To help us answer that question, take a look at the front page images on these mainstream SW&D retailer's web sites....

http://www.jcrew.com/mens-clothing.jsp
http://www.clubmonaco.com/home/index.jsp
http://www.mrporter.com/

Why do all these marketers purposefully display the same "dandy" suited style that does not match that of their average customer? Without being able to explain precisely why, it is safe to assume it is done out of commercial interests. Even if Fok had no explicit commercial thought behind the image, he may have chosen it unconsciously because it makes the site look similar to other commercially successful SW&D businesses. We call this "relevance", that is trying to look cool and current by being exactly like everyone else.

Thus as inaccurate as the current image is, it is not totally out of place. Just try to imagine Unilever selling their products on a site displaying the SZ banner. biggrin.gif

Do this. I like Jun Hashimoto but I'm not sure if BB1 will approve.

I wouldn't complain as he's currently one of my favorites. Although I really like the idea of seeing the banner change every month such that over time a wide array of SW&D styles are represented.
