White Mountaineering really confuses me. Some of the stuff seems amazing, and then you see really pricey poly MIC knits. People also seem to have bad reviews of the shirting.

i am normally not a fan of siki im (dont really like the assymetric cuts, tight silhouette), but

holy fucking shit siki im hit it out of the ball park for fw13

monochrome galore, but that fit is amazing.



vest? jacket? whatever it is, it's pretty awesome

are those pants dropcrotch? reminds me a bit of geller and maybe even ann d

capes are retarded but this one's cool



layers on layers on layers

yeah me too. i dont understand the high prices and bad quality fabrics, but the concepts are great

facetasm and sasquatch fabrix remind me of white mountaineering a lot, but with more experimental stuff

The shirts I have owned and handled have been pretty nice, but they aren't cut for everyone. Short but boxy, tight arms. Kinda weird. You guys sure you aren't hearing about the Wardrobe line? It's most definitely overpriced though, and really the only things that interest me these days are outerwear and some pants.
post #74376 of 109053
what's the wardrobe line? basics?
post #74377 of 109053
Kind of, it's just a lot less technical but includes knits, pants, jackets, etc. It's not bad per se, but some of it is just really boring and you're left with "This costs this much?" I mean, you still get that feeling with a lot of mainline WM, but at least a lot of it is pretty interesting.

I think it is a bit cheaper but still overpriced.

i think part of it has to do with transportation costs and import taxes and currency exchange. i'm sure it's not that bad in japan

What do you guys think of the whole denim/leather jackets ala rick owens drkshdw?

post #74380 of 109053
Yeah, probably. But maybe it's just me, $300 for a blue oxford is pretty insulting.

It is kind of strange though that both WM and nonnative (both still relatively pricey in Japan, at least the high end of mid tier for a lot of stuff) produce knits in China. The knit robe I bought from nonnative is MIC and retailed for about $650 over there, around $900-$1000 here. Personally I don't know too much about production and pricing in those countries, but if the majority of your stuff is MiJ, why are knits MiC?
post #74381 of 109053
we've had this conversation countless times, but MiC is not necessarily worse than MiJ. there's just this name appeal. one of the examples i remember given was that some of the best cashmere in the world is produced in tibet/himalayan China and it's much more cost effective and better quality control to produce the sweaters at the same location as well instead of shipping the fabric to a separate location in japan and then shipping it back to the distributors.

also really there's no reason why one country is higher quality than another. japan used to be considered what china is considered today, churning out mass low quality products, but now that image has moved to other countries. korean car manufacturing as another example is steadily improving its brand image, whereas ten years ago you couldnt pay people to take a hyundai or kia

i am a fan of leather and denim jackets, but imo the denim has to be pretty washed and worn. i sometimes wish i could tear the sleeves off of my ervell denim jacket and have toj attach leather sleeves.
post #74382 of 109053
I know, I never said MiC was inferior. I was just wondering since I really didn't know why they would do that.

Drew, are you listening? This leather sleeve attachment service needs to happen.

I'm sending over all my blazers, maybe a sweater or two, and some tees
post #74384 of 109053
No, send them to colabear instead.
