I've been anticipating the fades for several months now. And so far, nothing. Blue threads for days. Not a crest of white among them. Hopefully you'll fare better. biggrin.gif

@notwithit, I'm glad to hear you got to go to that! I couldn't make it, but friends went, and said it was excellent. After they broke up, there was a Jicks show in Dallas where Malkmus, Nastonovich, and half of Bright Eyes played together in the T-shirt vending area and I wish that took place when I had a video phone because I'd like to think it was almost as cool....

Recently, I put on my one pair of indigo jeans for the first time in forever and was surprised to see how un-dramatic they looked compared to my usual black pairs. As irreplaceable as a good fade is, I like me some drama.

new to the black denim train this winter myself, but can appreciate what you're saying. life is all about conflict after all

that, and realized I prefer 'luxe' stuff to slubby stuff

otherwise though, I really like the creative humor of his work and the level of intelligent thought that goes into his pieces, and I can tell you it is not fake at all...............he really is always an element of surprise.
you should check out his website and web store, there is a lot there to see and it should give a better perspective of his work

i was not hating on the man, a fellow tribesman even. just saying i thought it was gross lol.

i will have a look at his site and learn more about this sruki fellow.

his presentations are usually one of the high notes of men's fashion week in Paris

 

there is quite a polarizing view about his work but the one thing it always does is its guaranteed to bring out an extreme view in almost all those who come in contact with it.

 

And yes he is Jewish,  but more so a world traveler as he has lived in Australia, Israel, Iceland and several other places. He is also a nice family man too married with a family

I have a good friend and ex-training partner/Jiujitsu instructor who is an artist of some talent, and whose performance art is gruesome and riveting.  Of the two of us, pretty much anyone who knows us would say that he is the "nice guy", and it showed through even in the way we approached our MMA matches.  He was extremely technical, and not particularly aggressive.  But somehow he pulls of out himself this really dark stuff that is difficult to watch, to say the least.

I got my Yoox Roulette Christopher Raeburn bomber today.  It's a really nice piece.  Some interesting details that are not extraneous to the classical bomber design, but actually reference the function of aviator jackets.  One puzzling thing though - he uses as YKK 4 zip.  I would have expected at least an 8, and even a 10, considering that the jacket is made from heavy (I would guess 21 ounce) wool from a traditional English mill.  I've seen this in his other pieces as well, and while it makes sense in his lightweight nylon pieces, on such a heavy piece, it seems rather incongruent.

 

I'll probably keep it, and have the zipper switched out for something beefier.  Or, I'll just wait until it breaks, which it will if used, and then change it.
