post #73096 of 98960

Is there an "official Dries thread"? Not that we really need one, but I'd read it if there were.

post #73097 of 98960
Been thinking about making one for a while. Just need to grab enough content first to flesh it out a bit.


^^ Yeah, I had forgotten about that Siki interview. More stuff like that.

I also think there's an issue of editorial content just not being surfaced well on this site, maybe dedicate less insane space on the side to a list of every user that's online and a bunch of "reviews" and instead highlight good original content?

For me, the really interesting part of fashion is the intersection between art and commerce. So, I'm most interested in labels that bring some innovation, but have a mind towards trend and saleability. The idea of the modern artist, for me, is purely mastubatory and uninteresting. I'm interested in how a creative works within constraints. I could be persuaded to cover the Stephan Schneiders of the world, but not the CCPs.

We're working on this. We are also creatives working within constraints.

I don't think anyone here would disagree with this. I like the pure art side but I can talk about it in threads that nobody reads, it doesn't have to be on the frontpage.



Coverage of more tech brands would be interesting too.

don't give a shit about commerce. struggling to see how stephan schneider is any more constrained than ccp tbh.

I never really felt entitled to interviews or a conscientious effort from the hosts to modulate forum content, I guess I always felt that that was up to the members themselves.

But I do agree it is nice when there is some type of directive. I think it helps create more of a community rather that people just feeling like lone rangers.

I agree, another one is below - it is hilarious, what does this even mean? Clearly they get the joke at BB by now.

BLACKBIRD
BLOOD CURSE SCARF
NOTES:

Couple directions you can take blood curse, one biblical, another regarding consumption of blood to gain supernatural power. We'll leave it at that.

Posted this in MC but would like some opinions from you guyz.

Little help needed. I'm starting to transition my clothes from skinny boy SW&D stuff to fuller cuts, mostly because I'm making an honest run at being a good powerlifter and don't want to look like a stuffed sausage in my clothing. I've found out that Levis reproductions are awesome jeans for that, now trying to find a good chino. This is a pair of Bills Khakis Chamois size 34 M2, snagged off ebay for around $30. These are v. comfortable but I am sort of conscious of how baggy they feel around the knee and how they drape, but i think this is a right step in the direction cause I can show you some pics of me in skinny uniqlo stuff that is no beuno.

My question is should I get the leg opening tapered a little bit?

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.

I can't speak for everyone but I liked the coverage, especially the mention of some good accessory makers that may not be on everyone's radar. On the other hand I see it more as a sort of styleforum blog post where I don't have to reply something and just look at a few things and maybe save some pictures. I think I gave a like or two but didn't see myself going "hey, nice fucking bag, way to go!!".

Not to sidetrack anything but how can you say CCP works without constraints? I'm not sure how well known the operational side of CCP is and it's not like there's good info on the web but he's def not on the commerce side but he has to take production into account (even the in-house part) and how he'll recoup the enormous cost of his huge staff and bizarre construction methods.

Oh and:

as spring/summer is getting closer and spring stock is starting to arrive, i'm thinking about ways of dealing with the heat - that is, shorts and cropped pants. not everyone lives in texas but most places in the northern hemisphere will still get really hot for at least a bit. anyone seen shorts that have interested them yet? making a thread dedicated to it is kind of tempting but i fear there's just not enough offerings available to sustain one.

can you go on about this ? i assumed the haphazard releases and loyal customer/retailer base (or what seems to be, maybe is just a trend ?) and massive wait times + costs of pre-orders leading to exclusivity help with ensuring there will be recoups even if everything is bizarre

I'd love a thread like that. Every summer my wardrobe shrinks to almost nothing wearable, I definitely want to kop some more cropped pants or shorts this time around.
