Because we all love top 10: Top 10 favourite brands right now - Page 17

post #241 of 298
Poo poo on everyone here who claims to wear sweet designers but posts no fit pics. Get on that
post #242 of 298
How about those of us who wear mediocre mid-level streetwear brands but post way too many fit pics? mwink[1].gif

^haha. well, at least we can aspire.

Here are my current Top 10.. with pictures!

Chistophe Leamaire (Click to show)
I really like the relaxed coolness of his stuff. Reminds me of some sort of modern beat poet. Minimal but not cold. The knits and outwear look really nice and substantial. Would like to get something from this fall season.

Chanel (Click to show)
My favorite fragrance house. I love most of their men's scents esp. Sycomore and Pour Monsieur. And who could resist No. 5?

Yohji Yamamoto (Click to show)
duh. I've come to reallly love Yohji and his whole hard/soft, East/West, disheveled/but suited-up vagabond thing. These two looks, one from spring 12 and one from the upcoming spring 13. Flowy, eastern lines speaking to my West Coast outlook.

Dries van Noten (Click to show)
Maybe my favorite designer. To me, he's got it all: cool fabrics, casual but crisp silhouettes, luxe details and... sandals! Some of his stuff is a little out there, but manages to stay within my MC-minded comfort zone. However, sometimes I feel like I should be a trustafarian/euro playboy to wear it. I have one suit and one pair of pants, but wouldn't mind a few more things.. past or present.

Levis (Click to show)
yeah, APCs or Dior 19cms are probably my favorite jeans, but it's hard to beat 511s for price:fit ratio. 1947s are pretty ok, too.

Caruso (Click to show)
Good quality Italian suit/blazer brand. A little on the conservative side, but not boring or dull. A good MC brand. If I had only one suit or had to wear a suit to a conservative job it would probably be a Caruso.

Uniqlo (Click to show)
I wear a stupid navy Uniqlo blazer more than anything else in my closet. Good value for basics.

Junya Watanabe (Click to show)
Junya manages to make boring prep/Americana look pretty cool. I don't have anything and maybe never will, but I like that it's there. Do a french sailor shirt, overalls and a lumberjack shirt go together? Sure!

Raf Simons shoes (Click to show)
I know, weird choice. But I really like my two pair of Raf shoes. I've got a derby and some hi-top sneakers. Would love to have this pair of boots and those Vandals. This is a tie with Vass, but I only have one pair of those and they're more of a pain in the ass to try/find/buy.

Ermenegildo Zegna (Click to show)
I think they've been doing a pretty good job lately of combining classic menswear with interesting fashion-y materials and color combos. I don't own anything, but I like what I see. The fabrics are pretty luxe. I wouldn't mind that tuxedo.

I think you could pull off junya, parker. scoop up some stuff during winter sale and play around with it.
post #245 of 298
Parker that first Lemaire coat is really nice. Where to kop?

^ I'm not sure. I think there are a couple online shops that might carry his stuff, but can't remember right now. I think he's also the creative director at Hermès which I almost listed as a Top 10. The men's collection has been pretty cool the last couple seasons, not as old-man as you'd think. but, probably -- excuse the Bay Area parlance -- hella expensive.
post #247 of 298
Yeah, I saw his stuff @ The Corner and some other places but not that particular coat. Pretty pricey, but not obscene.
post #248 of 298
Assembly stocked it last season. You can still pick up the SS stuff on sale.
post #249 of 298

found this thread and thought it should be continued.

 

not necessarily a top ten but what I tend to choose:

 

Ralph Lauren: Mostly for Polos (just the solid colored ones not the big horse ones). I also  live next to a factory store which influences my decision

Uniqlo: mostly for bottoms such as jeans and chinos.. and business stuff such as cheap dress shirts, winter coats, sport coats

Abercrombie Fitch: primarily for solid colored, small logo henleys (long and short sleeved).  I like henleys but I've found very few brands that use a three button lay out.  many have deep buttons which I don't like, or are too thin.

Adidas: Almost entirely for athletic apparel.  again I choose the due to location of a factory store. I like their cargo shorts.

Banana Republic: Mostly for inner shirts, cheap-mid range suits, button shirts, and other work related clothes.  I probably would not have considered them but I generally get a very generous discount (40-70%) as a relative works there.

More like a Top 5 cause I don't follow the rules of the French

Maison Martin Margiela
Lanvin
Dries Van Noten
RAF
Cutler & Gross

Welp seems I no longer wear Lanvin, Dries, and RAF. The top part is still true though

My top ten current obsessions, with links (some of these are about interest, some about what I am actually wearing...). A fair few are Japanese or have a strong presence in Japan, since I am spending the year here...
