Haven't Vanson and Aero always offered custom jackets?

Gdl starting his own shop with some help from Parker/Bows/dieworkwear. Interesting to see if any SW&D type stuff will make it.

Most people around where i am dont even know about dockers alphas they still wearing d1s.... That being said wait for the wh olive to go on sale. I have had my olive pair five years or so now do not regret it.

Those officer chinos are $185 on the site right? The RRL portion of the main site is so painful to navigate.

Do you ever get tired of seeing it on your face? I kinda want a pair of olive frames. Would likely get the same / similar shape to what I have now, though.

I've been thinking of getting clear frames

Yeah basic ones should be $185 but that one isn't that dark green. There's a pair that's not online yet but it's in stores, just call and ask for the 9.4oz herringbone ones. I think price was $220 for the pair will be on sale for pink pony

maybe some day, would be nice if regular peeps could walk into a nordstrom and find something they actually need and would wear instead of all the current garbage they sell

 

John Elliott straight-hem U-neck tees.  They're perfect, I'd own a ton if they weren't 60 bucks, and I think both of you are roughly the same proportions as me (get a L).  Both the 50/50 cotton/modal and the straight cotton feel really nice and are thick enough to take a beating.

 

They appear to be out of stock though.

"Celebrating its centenary this year, Schott NYC has inked a lease for a retail store at 236 Elizabeth Street in New York, blocks from the Lower East Side building where the company was originally founded. The 1,800-square-foot store is slated to open in October and will carry a full range of outerwear, including the brand’s legendary Perfecto motorcycle jacket, as well as a more recently launched sportswear line. Still owned and operated by the third and fourth generations of the Schott family, the company has not operated a store in New York since the Forties, apart from a pop-up shop on Mercer Street last fall. International licensees operate four Schott NYC stores in Japan and two in France."

also, from that Vogue piece on Hedi

"Slimane does not like many of the fabrics available to designers today—he thinks they're cheap and generic and don't sit right—so he often commissions his own, harking back to the specialty weaves of the sixties and seventies. He believes strongly in the "patina" of wear. (For this reason, he never allows a new men's shoe on the runway.) Many people were aghast, a few months ago, when it was reported that a nineties-inspired baby-doll dress from Slimane's fall women's line retailed for $68,000. Few realized that the price was a function of the hundreds of hours of tailoring involved. "What people didn't see in the grunge was that literally 40 percent of the pieces were handmade in the old atelier," Slimane says, done to the highest haute-couture standards."

I can understand wanting to make really high-quality pieces, but the dress still seems nowhere near worth that price tag. If you have Ferrari recreate a Honda Civic with the finest engineering and manufacturing available, they can produce one incredibly expensive take on the Civic. So if you want the best take on the Civic ever maybe it's worth it to you, but wouldn't you rather spend the money on Ferrari's best take on a Ferrari? Seems like a waste of effort for a baby doll dress.

I now own enough lounge and sportswear inspired clothing that I really need to start exercising regularly.

Yes, there are some things that cross-over tailored and casual, as well as things that more firmly into the SW&D world. As you guys have probably noticed, I don't believe in those high walls between tailored clothing and more casual offerings.

@ NAMOR - I started our affiliate thread on the MC side (had to pick one). I don't know if it's kosher to post links (I'm new to this affiliate thing...wink.gif )

Both the Thurston Bros and No Man Walks Alone stores are and should be cool. The big difference between Thurston and ToJ is that ToJ is sorta a fashion startup, and is really about fashion (lambskin, varsities, etc...) and Thurston Bros is a legit motorcycle gear shop. The lightest leather available from Aero, from fashion jackets, are as heavy as a the heaviest that Drew would have carried. If you are in RRL, or want a leather that you can really break in and live hard in, Aero is a better choice than ToJ. The fits are also dialed in, just because Aero has been around so long. However, the designs are pretty much what they are. It's good, in a way, because most MTO where there are too many options end up looking mediocre to terrible, unless the maker really works with you, and you are lucky. I mean, designers go throught tons of samples of original pieces to get things right. I expect that that's one of the many reasons Drew decided to not do just any options. To expect to get things right the first time is nearly impossible. I am going to get a blue cafe racer from them.

Aero and Vanson have always done MTO. The real difference is that Thurston Bros. has a MTO allotment with Aero, which means that you get your jacket in 5-7 weeks, as opposed to 4 months. For me, that's critical. I am going to get a blue cafe racer from them.

NMWA should be cool. I chatted with Greg about his stock, and I think that it will surprise you. It's not CM in the way, say, The Armoury is (i.e. great for that demographic, but not with that much that I need or want to buy for myself.) There is a lot of that as well, of course.
