If you are a lawyer, are you more likely to know the big firms, or a little firm with a couple of employees?  Same in fashion.

 

But fashion is extremely "popular", pretty much most people know about Dolce&Gabbana, Armani, Prada, etc, so one would assume a person in the field, studying it, would have more knowledge than regular folks. But when it comes to law, only people in it would know about big, small or any type of firms. Someone who`s studying to be a clothing designer should be a little more informed.

Designers aren't firms. They're individuals.

 

A law student will probably know Cochran, O'Mara, Shapiro, Geragos, etc. 

 


It doesn't feel presumptuous to expect fashion design students to know Kawakubo.

I was on a date with a fashion student a few weeks ago

Things were going well until we started talking about designers, and I mentioned Fuel Star and all the brilliant work they've done.

She had never heard of it. I simply stood up, turned around, and walked away. No words, just walked.

I mean, geez. The state of fashion education these days

I bought a pair of the Earls military chinos a while back from that TX hardware store. The label says 100% cotton but they feel a lot like a poly blend.

They're studying fashion, not fashion history.

I'm pretty sure most fashion design courses would have fashion history classes in the curriculum.

 

Let's just say some fashion design students know a lot about designers and some don't.

Definitely applies in art, art history and fine arts are perfectly separable and separate disciplines.

At that price should I just go Uniqlo/COS or get something from Gilt/MH/Yoox? Some of the CKC / Simon Spurr suits they frequently have look pretty decent from the photos.

I agree w/ above; suit supply.

or just h&m, and save yourself hundreds of dollars

I got a pair of earls fatigues and they are huge, looking for something with a more regular fit.

I thought about going this route but I don't want to wear the same suit two days in a row (if I ever need to wear suits two days in a row).

They do free returns, I think, if you're not near one of their stores.

I'll look into this. Always thought their suits were $700+ but there's some for $499, free shipping/returns is a nice touch.

Knowing critically important influential people in your field =! being involved with the historical study of your field.
