Wow, very interesting. She explains it very clearly with a little touch of humour, I like her (and her leather jacket smile.gif ).
Tom Ford said he's not really bothered by knock-offs, as the panel of customers is not the same. People who usually shop at Gucci, don't go to Zara. I get that, but that's his point a view as a seller. But what about the customer? I mean,a lot of people into designer's fashion enjoy the 'exclusivity' of their items (price-wise, brand-wise, design-wise), how would the owner of the 5000 $ Saint Laurent leather jacket react when seeing the exact same 150 $ Zara design in faux leather everywhere else? Well he might think "mine is better, in real leather, etc" but doesn't it somehow make him lose his sense of exclusivity, and justifying paying that much? Personally, I'd be a little mad lol. I saw that reaction among "fashionista" everytime H&M launches a collaboration with a designer. The HMMMM case was interesting because they didn't just design new clothes for H&M, but made replicas of various MMM signature item. How did the average owner of the SS2009 original beige suit reacted to the H&M version, for instance?

Maybe MMM's reasoning is if it's gonna get knocked off regardless they'd rather be in on it themselves than not.

I've heard this before but have yet to meet a tailor who says he can do it. Maybe I'm going to the wrong places.

Fast fashion ruins almost everything I enjoy about clothing.


No more women with their jeans tucked into their forever21 cowboy boots while wearing olive parkas, please god.

I lol'ed.!
I feel the same. Ever since fast fashion has popularized the worst : 100% polyester outfits. I don't mind a 100% polyester item on a fit, but l really really hate girls I see everyday with the same polyester dress/skirt/top and faux leather jacket, especially during hot seasons. That shit just STINKS (on top of looking cheap). Polyester makes you sweat, it keeps odors, and stick to your skin. And that particular smell of sweat+synthetic material makes me sick.

You should find a better tailor. Mine does this as well.

Mailed a pair of Geobaskets Priority with tracking on Monday but USPS's website hasn't updated since it left my city. I filed a claim yesterday and they said they'll follow up with me next week. confused.gif  

Looks like my friend received the packaged. Whew.

Sounds like I should be intensely invested in this man's problems.

this is my weird rule:

 

Cuffs are the Times Roman of menswear (classic, traditional, staid). Plain hems are Helvetica (modern, clean, neutral). Just depends on the expression you're going for.

I only speak for myself, and don't have that particular suit, but I actually like the democratization of fashion. I just got another pair of Margiela GATs, and I probably wouldn't get knockoffs, for any number of reasons, (I actually like them more than the Dior version, tbh), but am not at al bothered by their existence either. If someone wants the look, but can't or won't pay a few hundred, that is fine with me.

What I do object to is the watering down of designs into a timid, toothless, version.
