I find them all to be pretty darn similar. They all sort of have their signnture items/design flairs. Personally I like Zam's stuff a lot more. More of it is made in my size and the materials are cooler. He has a really cool grey marl/spalted/whatever long sleeve glove hoodie. Very nice.

aside from maybe scar & over stitching or garment dyed which are just techniques, it's not really the same at all. it can compliment such things, but as Art says it helps to have handled these different collections. i mean there's nothing in any ccp collection i've seen that reminded me of zam stuff ..

I haven't handled either, so you may be right.  I just think Zamb's a little like Geller in that there is no real overarching aesthetic yet... nice individual pieces but they don't always mesh, and some of the stuff is pretty clearly derivative.

 

Like I said though that's not really a black mark against him, there's certain zamb stuff that I'd consider buying.

want to buy a jacket but never purchased from them

Brand is surplus raw vintage, theyre sold all over the place in the uk. Had to order from overseas, have a medium and large getting shipped over here to judge for size. If you are stateside and don't want to order overseas, and think you might be M or L let me know since I will sell one.

You do realise he's over 6 foot tall?
post #31299 of 45089
being 6 foot tall doesn't mean he can randomly say i'm retarded.

fwiw I used to think this, a lot of Zam's early stuff felt very "design school project" to me. Obviously I don't have the experience that artishard does, but it seems like he's gotten much better in that regard.

Yup I've bought pants and pieces from him for a couple of years and his stuff is consistently evolving. Echoing artishard's sentiment it's hard for me to think about buying any other goth ninja-ish pants than Zam's because of the price for what you get in terms of design/construction/treatments and fabric.

I also really like his Echnadh and Faulted Shoulder Pattern for long sleeves. Have a couple great jackets and a leather shirt from him as well. The leather shirt was steamed for 24 hrs so it's a metallic grey that's slightly shimmery, pretty neat.

I like my Zamb pants as well

The twisted inseam I am not fond of as it throws off my proportions.

Need more of his straight cut type trousers.

Post a fit pic when you get it, looks nice.

Ordered these today, hard to decide on a first pair of redwings - too many to choose from

post #31305 of 45089

decided to forgo the Visvim FBTs and UC scab suit and go for something much more sensible:

 

1000

 

 

Great shape to it, these pictures almost do it justice.
