Most Thom Browne stuff including tailoring is made in the Comme Des Garcons factory in Japan now and has been for the past few years. I don't think I've seen any made in USA tailoring items in quite a while. Shirts are Garland shirt factory I believe (the shirts seem to show up with the Brooks Brothers outlet resellers). Some knits made in Ireland / Scotland and shoes are made by Sanders now (used to be Tricker's). Sunglasses are by Dita.

Shirts are good quality, suiting is in line with say Southwick so really not priced too well unless cut works perfect for you and you want tri color grosgrain everywhere and working buttonholes.

The cheap bastard in me has stopped me from buying a new one. I am still using the hagardly shit I have. It operates like a third world laptop

How many gigs do you have on your new laptop?
post #84905 of 100949
its got a T and 24gb of ssd.
definitely more that i need in that area but i needed the graphics card, ram and processor for the cad programs. i guess with the files ill need the terabyte of storage too.
but i dont have it yet so i cant comment with authority!!

tried on a bbs scarstitch leather in hostem today, feel like it suits long lanky guys much better than me though.
also rick has opened up a darkshdw 'pop up' store in east london (redchurch st) til october 13, worth a visit if anyone's in the area. the staff are super-friendly and wear the clothes so well. even in london its rare to see this stuff worn head to toe in the wild.

When did Zara's t-shirt collection become a cross between urban outfitters, cheap knockoff ralph lauren, and givenchy?  good god

post #84909 of 100949
Since always?
post #84910 of 100949
Nah, the faux leather panel stuff and star-printed tees weren't there last time I swung by Zara's site. I guess their Big Box O' Trendy Mush arrived a month or two late

I posted some forever 21 Givenchy knockoff shirts a while back (shark jaws/stars etc)
post #84912 of 100949
truth? I kinda liked the givenchy black/red neck stars tee
