It costed me $33 to send a 1 lb piece of clothing to London registered first class, and it has taken a week for it to get from Atlanta to New York. Who recommended this shit?

Best new thread, sipang. I was trying hard to find the photo of the guy who is standing with one foot way up on top of the wall, as if he is trying to take flight. Or, establish his territory by pissing on it.

Yeah, I see what you're saying. It's kind of a mix to me. The jackets and stuff definitely work in SW&D. Maybe it's just a matter of presentation, or perhaps my misunderstanding of CM since I admittedly never look at that side of the site.

Most of the SWD brands at Pitti aren't really the kind that renew themselves completely every season and where you await with bated breath new items but reliable staples with a quality output that is very similar season-in season-out. I mean I own two SNS sweaters and like what they do but it's not like Im wondering wtf will happen with the clothing and how crazy the show will be like with Berhard Willhelm. If you add the totally boring blog-fodder style of the participants it is bound to create less online reaction while still being a major and quite interesting fashion event for those on the ground.

I love it when something is labeled XL and has a 33" waist. ffffuuuu.gif

So I guess that that begs the question of what, if any, SWD coverage we should do? Forget anything remotely goth, or ninja. That shit seriously gives me a rash. You guys can talk about skinny ninjas, but I don't have to go to the shows, and report back to you about them. Also, there has to be enough density for the expense to be worthwhile. I'm not sending a guy to Paris to cover a single show that will be plastered all over the place anyway. That's one of the reasons I like tradeshows. Everyone covers Dior and Jil and whatever Hedi is trying to do, so there's no sense bothering to chime in on those.

lol Fok we're enjoying the Pitti coverage we just haven't been as forthcoming with our feedback as the respond-to-everything CM-ers have.

No, it doesn't.

Smaller artisan brands/one man bands.

Fok, what's ninja to you exactly ?

As Hendrix pointed out, it think the lack of reaction has probably less to do with the content than with the difference in dynamics between MC and SW&D. Speaking only for myself, I enjoy reading about some of the Pitti stuff in moderate doses but that's not really my kind of shit so it's hard for me to talk or get excited about it. That doesn't mean I don't appreciate it though.

Regarding coverage suggestions, I'd really like to read about / discover labels that aren't associated in some form or another to classic menswear or heritage stuff, by which I mean that I wouldn't mind seeing coverage of more fashion-oriented (blahh) events or labels. True, big names coverage would be redundant at best but what about smaller operations maybe closer to Schneider (or Yang Li or Leder or Peir Wu or ...) in size, to take a well-known example, than to Dior or Jil ? Could be showrooms or smaller shows during PFW, stuff like Siki Im, Ervell etc during NYFW etc etc.

Obviously, I've no idea of this whole thing works so those are just super abstract suggestions.



I'll do a Dries Van Noten interview for styleforum

the interview with Siki Im was great
