adidas quality is actually pretty good as far as clothes go. remember that giant athletic/activewear companies have infinitely vaster resources and access to technology, factories and construction capabilities than the upper-mid tier and smaller luxury designers that generally dominate discussion here. dirk schoenberg is also a very important designers. lastly I really like SLVR, but last time I played with stuff in person they hadnt seem to figure out how to size things. Some things I was a medium, some a small and some a large. Good design impulses though and stuff felt pretty damn good for the price point.

I dunno what the quality is like on Benenato's work but yeah I was just browsing through some of her pieces on HL the other day and there's a lot to like imo.

Ask toasty he has a cardigan of hers, she does a lot of knitwear though some really nice ones too you should check out the spring 13 ones.

The fucking ToJ thread is fucking weird you guys. Cole and Distorbiant, y'all on some weird shit and I don't want to know why the hell there is such a tremendous personal investment in that thread, on your part. Duct taping a leather jacket? The fuck? I feel like Willy must tune into that thread each day shaking his head, "wtf is going on."

In other news, I'm feeling confrontational so I want to challenge toasty to a loungewear fit. No interfering in this dick-wagging session Jet. You can get in on the next one.

I'm guessing an interview with, say, Daiki would be hard to set up, but one with Abdul Abasi (the Nepenthes store manager dude) would be cool for perspective on EG and stuff.  His own Abasi Rosborough label looks interesting too.  I'm sure someone on here (Shoreman?) must have met him before.

On the corner of 4th and Pike. Inventory is still a good 3hr drive though.

It was pretty packed when I was there this afternoon, but if you're talking about their Veilance pieces, they have just a small walled off area with a few jackets, tops, and accessories. They had a few sizes of the parsec jacket there, but unfortunately no xs to try on.

I bet Zam would be down.

i asked peir, she seems enthused about it! she wanted to read the geller interview tween did a while back smile.gif
post #83758 of 101092
Suggestion: You do a casual video interview with Peir over coffee, blow SF's collective mind.
post #83759 of 101092
fly back to london for a coffee and meeting with peir? =baller!

if teger isnt going to conduct the interview id nominate robinsongreen! i know for a fact that it would be epic

And make sure to rub it our faces by asking only questions such as:

"Was the DMV crowded yesterday?"

"Remember the last time we had coffee and they ran out of cream?"

"Could you explain your process and influences behind making my custom jacket?"

"Which of my tattoos do you like best?"
