I tried it, but for some reason even in my imagination I was in the corner browsing styleforum on my phone.

"How would you go about "creating" a fabric in-house without a factory, knit it with two forks and a lot of attitude? Certain brands work with factories to create custom fabrics (Schneider, Lanvin etc) and others are primarily weavers who also produce collections (Loro Piana), however this whole "SZ brands are artisan made" has caused people to really misunderstand how a collection is actually produced. For one SZ brands are not made by artisans, they just give off the scent of it. SZ brands are produced like Gucci, sometimes with nicer fabric and better construction, sometimes not."

"Gucci has some embroidered or quite complex pieces too you know. Factories are not "run of the mill" and many of them can produce impressive products. SZ brands are certainly not made in "ateliers", I mean are there even ateliers in Italy aside from a few trad bespoke shoes and garment makers? Thom Browne has pretty much more handwork than any SZ brand you know and its still made in a factory like every fucking suit by a RTW brand. An atelier is just a smaller factory anyway, sometimes with the capacity for more hands-on intervention (or the lack of machinery to do it any other way smile.gif ).

If you want handmade AtelierNYC sells these crazy scarves by that NYC girl, they're pretty cool, for all the rest there's made in Italy in a factory.

CCP does not "outsource a certain amount of production" it outsources all production, there might be some exceptions like the latex dipping."

Part of the discussion was sub-discussion on these $1500 gloveless gloves from CCP:

To be fair CCP has so many employees, including technicians, that suiting is made in part or sometimes nearly in whole by people directly working under Carol, sort of weird and not commercially viable exception. Latex dipping though is entirely done by Carol himself cause he thinks others don't have the right touch, he hates the sight of those shoes.

note: I'm posting this from a safari lodge, I'm like the guy looking at sf on his phone at the imaginary Labelking/Barims/Synthese/Fuuma party.

He hates the look of dipped shoes? Or does he hate the look of the ones not done by his own hand?

Does moleskin stretch and wear with use similar to denim or what?


edit:
Ugh

Non-wool fabric for trousers like cotton are really not flattering on me. The only time that I can remember is back when I wore Nudies, but that is different because the denim molds to your leg shape with each wear no to mention the beautiful fades... Nowadays I cannot buy cotton bottoms without odd creases, unclean lines due to the fabric being more rigid. This sucks. I guess to be more specific, fabric that will loosen up with wear or has an inherent characteristic of being light and flowy e.g. linen, silk, viscose(?), jersey cotton etc.

Christophe Lemaire makes some beautiful clothes btw. Fabric feels wonderful, thick, and construction is really well done. I think the silhouette of his trousers would fit a lot of guys here. Gradual taper but not aggressive. As seen in his lookbook for each season, the tailored bottom with thick knit or long, billowy coat is fantastic! Something majestic and romantic about the look... I am sad, I cannot wear your non-wool pants Mr. Lemaire frown.gif

Luxire maybe the only viable option to get specific colors and have it done in a wool fabric.

I'm addicted to his jackets. Def need to give some trousers a try
post #91735 of 102478

I have no Lemaire, do his trousers work for guys with short legs and thick thighs?

post #91736 of 102478
Maybe... try it out and see. If you are under 5'9 then maybe not a good idea.

I say that only because I have learned to appreciate the style / cut the designer intended his or her garments to be like and it will either fit my body type or will not. Obviously minor things like taking in the waist or hem is fine, but when it comes to the seat need adjustment or you get a knee bulge etc. I just don't mess with it. Hell, even if it is too long and depending on the designer some here would suggest just rolling up the hems! If you I cannot fit into a certain aesthetic because the cut of clothing is too slim, big, short, long etc. I just walk away from it and admire from afar...

Certainly you can say how great the fabric is and I was trying to convince myself to keep something for that very reason, but it is a bit foolish.

How does Nuur stuff fit? Tts or slim
post #91738 of 102478
Slim

You'll need a 42 or 44 because I doubt you're same size as me, 38/40

Some old CCP photos:

I know what they say, but if any native speaker would like to provide the translation, by all means please do!

I think my English isn't very good, but I give it a try. ^^


Space and time While it's genesis, in the studio the scenic designs for the Milan La Scala were painted. Today, the big loft, only seperated by shelves, has to fulfill countless functions, it is a showroom, workspace and warehouse all in one. In the foreground: The inner life of a Carol-Christian-Poell sport coat.

Narrow silhouette There aren't any photographs of Carol Christian Poell. Who doesn't meet him in person has to be content with the outlines of his figure. The model (here on the hook) is made from the same green paper as the patterns.

He hates the look of them because he has spent hours dipping them cause he does not trust anyone else.
