I struggle finding decent short-sleeve henleys, but the Scheisser one I have is pretty nice. Merz B Schwanen is probably nicer and a little more interesting, but definitely higher dollar and the fits are kind of all over the place. I like Homespun, but I've only found one that fits me really well. I believe we're both in similar tall & lanky territory, so finding a henley that's both trim enough to layer over and long enough can be kind of a hassle.
Went to Dover Street Market NYC today. There was a huge line but it was just for the nike supeme collabo or something.
I wasn't that impressed with the place, really--it's very runway-y, which is fascinating but not that relatable. I did see a dress that costs 14 grand tho. Brands I did know had really weird buys, like the SNS selection was all stuff I'd never seen before, the junya was all vests and cropped pants, and only one leather in the Rick Owens section. Maybe the idea was to show an alternative to the normal buys out there. Plz keep In mind that this paragraph is coming from a totally underinformed place.
The space is cool--a lot of bare white, strange arrangements of the goods, unlabeled art pieces. The highlight to me was the visvim, but hey, I like that brand. I didn't see any designers I didn't know about already that I was like "oh cool" about.
I had a lot more fun seeing the margiela, dries, etc at IF Boutique later in the day.
One thing about NYC: I saw more than five pairs of what I'm pretty sure were Rick sneakers out in the wild. Didn't expect that.
Also, does every menswear place in this city sell the same set of CDG fragrances and like one token non CDG pick? I have more choice in North Carolina. Of, course, almost all my choices in NC suck, but still, NYC, no variety.
