They did men's pieces but they established the first separate men's line in 2002 if I remember correctly. Some of the old men's looks (pre official) look really good.


Re-post from earlier:
0: collection artisanale for women & men (the couture pieces shown during the haute couture presentations, the men's line are "0 10")
" ": Défilé (runway) collection for women (entirely white label, the original collection, it used to be synonymous with line 1 but hasn't been so since 2008)
1: the collection for women (more intellectual and process oriented line)
3: Fragrance (came out 2012 (?), developped by L'Oréal)
4: a wardrobe for women (more dressy and "timeless" stuff)
mm6: garments for ♀ (used to be just 6, these are the basic garments collection is also called "basic garments for women")
8: eyewear collection
10: the collection for men (equivalent of line 1, started in SS09)
11: a collection of accessories for women & men
12: fine jewellery collection (the equivalent of say Dior Joaillerie, so pricier stuff made in partnership with Damiani group)
13: objects & publications
14: A wardrobe for men (equivalent of line 4, started SS05)
15: mail order (an april 1999 partnership with Les 3 Suisses where garments were sold through their catalogue in France and Benelux)
22: a collection of shoes for women and men (started in AW05-06, previously were in line 1 and 10)
Sartorial: capsule collection part of line 14, basically pricey menswear suits done the traditional way, blingbling gold lining with the words Martin Margiela
Replica: collections 4 and 14 often include "replica" items, you'll see the word on the tag and they're reproduction of vintage objects and the origin is mentionned in a short text
Aids t-shirt: a series of tees to provide money to french charity AIDES fighting, you guessed it "aids", there is a text you can read when the tee is folded but not when you're wearing it.

On the labels you have the numbers from 0 to 23 with the appropriate collection circled but not all of them are in use.

I like this replica 80s suit jacket. simultaneously mundane and cool.

Probably not wanting to spend over $500, other options might be Andrew Mac, Buttero (if they've got anything?), Jun (depending on Price), but given I live in a hot climate, I don't really know where to start.


White's snowcats


There's nothing worse, than having cold feet in the winter time, also get a knitted hat if you don't have one already.

What you want are warm socks and a thicker sole. As long as the soles are not leather, but are crepe or rubber of some sort, and they are thck enough, you will be good to go.

For the winter, I wear sneakers and boots, interchangeably, but something with a thicker sole (say, Trickers with a crepe or Vibram sole) will work fine. Get some warm socks from a company like Chup (for topical coolness), or Smartwool (for actually functional socks), and you will be good to go.

Of course, your miliage may vary. I grew up in Canada, and cold is a welcome friend. It's the heat and sun I can't stand.

OK so I've been digging around Craigslist for a while looking for a nice, authentic but affordable persian rug for my room, and I've narrowed it down to these two from the same seller. Both are hand knit in Iran, estimated to be between 30-70 years old, in good condition, both 5'x7'. First one he's asking $250, second $350. Which?

If the extra money doesn't bother you too much, the second one.

post #80287 of 109053
Definitely second one.

ive been through 15+ toronto winters, trust me you don't need boots. unless you're going way up north. weather is basically identical to east coast US

Second one is a very classic design and pretty common. I like the first one simply because it is more unique.

Is this true for anyone else?

This Damir Doma shirt keeps showing up in my email
http://www.thecorner.com/item.asp?nax=38&cod10=38274484VB&id_code=4064454_2993_3_VB_3000&TP=15090

Every time it says one more available and each time I click it says 'sold out'. Am I just too slow or they just teasing me? ffffuuuu.gif

Agreed on the second rug. Always a classic.
