i didn't even know replay was a real store until corniche. i just assumed it was some one off store at the bev center that sold crap for overinflated prices that people would buy because it was at the bev center.

i guess the latter can still be true.

Traffic? Yeah, OP probably works there.

I like their stuff a lot better after my thread ripper is done with branding removal. Good fit/decent price.

The Dries Van Noten "Correct Line" is now available but not in large quantities. I have seen one small rack stocked at their Sydney store. The line is definitely cleaner than normal G-Star stuff but most pieces do still generally carry a G-star logo somewhere. Think small pony as opposed to large pony PRL. The stuff is very slim fit. I am normally a European 48 in jacket size. The 48 sportscoat I tried on in store was very fitted especially in the shoulders/arms and I don't have huge guns by any means. The line does not seem to be priced noticably higher than normal G-Star stuff.

Personally, as long as it isn't drenched in tacky embrodiery and stiched lettering i'll consider a g-starr piece. I've seen some plan black/gray accessories, sweaters and jackets that I'l wear if the price were right.

I could have sworn there was a replay, either under pinkberry or next to it.

The sign is a really cheap light up one. Never give the store any time of day-it looks really crappola

there's a Replay store upstairs across from Banana Republic on the Macy's side. IIRC it's a british denim brand (?), been around a long time

Is it sad that you know the layout of the Bev Center so well? Survey says...: Yes.

Is that the real story about your Rick that fell off the back of a truck?

a friend of mine wears g-star all the time, and it always looks pretty good, especially the outerwear... and some of it doesnt really have a whole lot of obvious branding on it, so i think they are toning that down now. He has a jacket from the "correct line" and i think the only logo it has is on the hardware.

Survey says...: Yes.

I've been there four times. Pinkberry is serious biz

I was under the impression that their denim is actually quite good and their logo-free (or at most, subtle/minimal corporate embroidery) jackets are decent and at least worth considering.

I'm no apologist for serious douchewear, but G-star is one where I make an exception to. They are, after all, a business, so I'll excuse them for selling hordes of tacky garbage (the logo t-shirt, logo hoodie, etc) to fund their decent pieces. I apply the same line of thinking to designers such as J. Lindeberg.

Really can't stand the name though... G-STAR... it seems to fit the profile of some rather undesirable persons.
