post #98491 of 109053
I want a coat with some volume to it.. nothing flat, nothing slim.

Is this too costumey? Can I get away with wearing this really casually?? You guys know I like boring stuff, worried a dramatic bell-shaped civil war coat is too much and I should go back to looking at Stephan Schneider and Peir Wu

This exact coat:


Fabric (wool/ramie blend, black/navy with brown stripes)

yeah definitely. Is the first that bergfabel? The last one is arts and science right? Do you get a good deal on those brands in Japan?

Oh and i'd just buy a harnden coat but i've never tried coats by these other 2 designers so i dont know how they fit/look on not on stiff models so im a bit biased.

All Bergfabel. The last one is the same coat in a women's size from the A&S website - they stock a bit of Bergfabel and curate it as part of their collection. Bergfabel is picking up and from what I've heard, the designer is a very pleasant dude who has a wonderful relationship with his stockists over here. Pricing on everything is terrible this season, though, thanks to the weak yen. Bergfabel jackets went up from around $1200 to $1600 while PH jackets are hovering around $2600, almost $1000 more than they were two years ago.

I'm actually debating between the aforementioned coat and a Harnden Mac in wool tweed as a bit more boring choice. Bergfabel cuts are a slight bit cleaner than PH and some of the fabrics (especially the one I linked above) are a bit more appealing to me. PH is also only carried in Tokyo by large chains like Barneys and Comme des Garcons whereas I can pickup Bergfabel from an independent store in my neighborhood that I'd rather support (http://www.carrefour-jiyugaoka.com/).

Hmm, i'd love to see bergfabel in person. It's a shame all of it has gone up so much recently, especially PH for me - I love supporting my local shop but just cant justify the prices anymore.

I've been wearing thin coats all the time recently but need something like what you're thinking too and I have no problem wearing them casually. I'm jelalous you can try them on! And thanks for the link to the local shop, its great to see what smaller places are doing around the world icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Oh and not related but i'd love to talk about Phillip Patterson - he's a NZ designer who's based in London and worked for maurizio altieri and CCP for a bit after graduating from CSM in 2010 but is now doing his own label. I first saw it last season and loved the fabrics but tried on a suit with cropped trousers from this season and it's absolutely amazing. It is this really nice green colour with small black check in the fabric. Unfortunately it's too dark at Eastern Market to take a good picture but I'll see if I can Saturday. He also does womenswear but it'd all gone by the time I got to go.

Anyway, it's impossible to find anything else out about him, so was wondering if anyone else knew anything?

I also wish to know more. His website is just an email address and a blank page! I'd love to see a collection or something.

 

+ will be in town soon to try on.

Matt - the new stuff is amazing. I'm probably buying the suit if I'm honest, just got to wait a little bit. Hoping it's still there when I can. Plus, there's a new thicker jacket that so reminds me of old Carpe Diem/Linea stuff - I think you'll really like it.

MMM GATs, laced or unlaced?

Nice - I really need some cropped pants or shorts though, but I'll be looking the stuff up when I get into town.

 

I also have been enviously watching Archive uploads on IG, and I'll be popping in on a weekday to ACTUALLY catch them.

I've been curious about PR Patterson for a little while but don't know much about it either. Hostem carries it and has some pics. Can't find any place in NYC where I could have a look though (and haven't been interested enough to email). They do have some nice hats and outerwear.
post #98500 of 109053
thanks for that pickpack, I didnt know hostem had it. The way it is styled on their site is very different to how it looked on me when I've tried it in person. I didn't see any in NYC at IF or whatever but if you do get a chance to see it in person I'd recommend it as the fabrics are lovely.

All I could find was this from his graduate show at Central Saint Martins. He was in the same class as Lee Roach.


Looks promising!

This guy's jacket and pants don't look too far off modern cuts.

Every time my wife goes out of town and leaves me home alone, I buy a bunch of clothes.

"This thing? Oh, it's from eBay. You wouldn't believe how low the prices are on there. Crazy, really."

Nearly verbatim shog[1].gif That, and "Oh, it's just something I found at 50%(!!) off"
