US stockists would be hideously expensive anyway, no?

Didn't know PH quality has gone southwards over the years, even though the price has been on the rise very much every season..any similar makes from other labels?

Thank yourself for avoiding the tail end of an internet hype machine. For reference, here's the SZ search cloud:

the price of everything has gone up, and everything isn't as well made as it once was. i don't know about this anecdotal evidence of shoddy quality , but it's always executed rather poorly with little consideration for problems like variation in fit, etc. unless you believe in a conspiracy that his limited numbers is intentionally a marketing scheme, he's just not that interested in being plastered all over the place. it's this inherent limited accessibility that drives a lot of the madness. search term on a derivative clothing forum isn't really an indicator of hype aside from when you limit your perspective to that community. anyway price is always relatively cheaper overseas too

simone/a1923 has basically copied a lot of ph in his recent designs and has stated as much. he bought bunch of it, made his own stuff, then sold it.

not that harnden is even a designer, he sticks to pretty deprecated, shapeless cuts and sources fabrics from the few operational looms that exist. you pay for outdated technologies that produce fabrics cut into even more antiquated styles. worn head to toe it's no more playing dress-up as victorian pauper than, say, a lolita costume or a noragi and hakamas hashtag so authentic

How do I size Geobaskets (this season. I don't know if they vary)? I wear 43 in MMM side zips, 43.5-44 in GATs, UK 9 in Lanvin, and 10D on Brannock sizing. Mr Porter says it fits large to size, so should I get a 42, or stick with a 43?

A ton of his stuff used to.go to final sale at Assembly New York a ways back, before it was a big internet deal. It wasn't awesome then, either.

Everything at hotoveli goes to final sale still now....
And yeah, that's the point. It's always been authentically shoddy construction so the complaint that it's not up to any contemporary standard is a bizarre one.

Yep. Still in the same area. Depending where you're at these days, I would check out Clawson Shoe Repair. Nice guys. I haven't had any sole jobs done there, but I'm sure they can tackle that pretty easily.

I'm convinced that BT clothes are made for short people. Their L shirt fits like GBV M, but shorter in the body and sleeves.
