I know that, but like I said people who buy them are people who care about design, but still want/need performance, I would love for brands like haglofs to make a line focused on city wear and not skiing/trekking etc.
Haglöfs upcoming 19Fourteen collection is really good. Mentioned it on it a while back on the Tech thread
Europe, so I won't be trekking through the wilderness or anything
Think I'll bring the CPs
Don't do it. You'll end up buying running shoes out of desperation. You have to walk everywhere and it takes it's toll on our SUV-suburban-driving feet
I wear my roshes, haven't even worn my margielas unless I'm walking around the corner.
In this little bubble of internet space, I totally forget there's people out there who spend a ton of money on clothes and have awful taste.. Like I personally think Balmain and SLP are a waste of money for regressive fashion unless you're like in The Strokes or something (and then you have other problems..) but at least the individual pieces look good. I see dudes daily in head to toe D&G and Dsquared with a Gucci belt and Goyard tote who musta blown 50 bills to look like the late 90s. That blend of euro trash and $200 D&G logo tee is the one aspect of fashion that I can objectively say is bad. Then again, I used to own a pair of True Religion jeans so I should probably keep mouth shut
In good news, saw a dude in the current season green linen Devoa suit with the cropped pants and a good amount of Chrome Hearts silver, looked very good.
Dr. Dre, aka Andre Young, who will join Apple following the finalization of its acquisition of Beats Electronics, has been profiled by The Wall Street Journal in a piece that gives a look at his work philosophy, his character, and the role he will play at Apple. The music mogul is said to have a "perfectionist impulse," a penchant for being short with words, and a disregard for artificial deadlines, which could cause friction at Apple. "I'm not feeling that," he'll say when he doesn't like an idea presented to him. The Wall Street Journal compares his attitude to that of Steve Jobs.
Nah, it's canvas with leather trim. I believe they're hand painted though
Just more expensive, more exclusive, and founded before Vuitton
This doesn't mean much, these companies aren't as venerable as their names, they reinvented thmselves several times, changed hands, etc. To me they're just a bunch of modern, business-minded companies that bought old artisan businesses to use the name and it's recognition but didn't keep anything else (Gucci is the same), they might as well sell industrial equipment.
