Can use as a fishing net if you're ever out in the water?

"Lemaire"? Surely this is CDG? Yoox has the "coat" to go with it, if you can call it that:

http://www.yoox.com/us/41597203SK/item#dept=men&sts=sr_men80&cod10=41597203SK&sizeId=

...only $1.7k. Quite reasonable, considering the tremendous quantity of fabric that went into it...

Lemaire

 

 

I see benzene rings everywhere!

@il_colonnello That's a great find. Whatever I picked up cost no where near that much for one thing. Now I am more intrigued what I purchased.

I'll be a little bummed if it is really CdG. Hopefully I will be happily surprised.

I've shopped a lot, first Yoox-roulette occurrence.

Yoox made a mistake ^there. It's SS15 CdG Homme Plus, just found a runway shot of what you kopped:

The pattern/idea ran through the whole collection, like in this T-shirt also on Yoox:

http://www.yoox.com/us/37781770JO/item#dept=men&sts=sr_men80&cod10=37781770JO&sizeId=

I vaguely remember seeing a fit pic of sb wearing a piece from the collection on gr^iled; I believe it was a "knit" over a sweater. Looked great.

Anyway, no need to be bummed. I think Rei Kawakubo > Christophe Lemaire. Probably Lemaire himself would agree, if we could ask him. :-)

Thanks for the background, maybe I should experiment more.

I was so confused for a second picturing you confused wearing this with other Lemaire stuff. I like the piece though.

 

"I'll be a little bummed if it is really CdG." Why?

That was actually a piece Christophe designed for Rei. She called him up one morning and said, "hey man, I know this isn't usually your thing, but deep within you is a colonel's jacket made out of netting, waiting to spring into the world. Give it a try." And he said, "you know, Rei, you have a point." The record of the phone conversation is currently sitting in a vault at Elle Magazine.

Nice. How many W+H hit tops are you at now? The collection is real haha. You have them in the Reed Suede colorway too right, thought I saw a fit with them you posted in WAYWT? Any chance you can link me to that? I have the Reed colorway in mind and have been looking for a style shot.

Let's see, I've got black w/ white toecap, reed, blue suede w/ white toecap, and now black leather...so altogether, that probably makes too many, right? shog[1].gif

I could've sworn I had a WAYWT with them, too, but I couldn't find it during a cursory lookback through my photos. Anyway, here's one with what I'm actually wearing today, with two caveats:

1) This was my first time using my phone's self-timer thingy to take a photo.
2) I haven't gotten around to finding a place to take WAYWTs even though I moved into this house like 5 months ago, so I just set the phone on the ground (or cement, which is as close to ground as most Philly backyards get) propped up against the wall.

I'm guessing you're the anonymous source that leaked the panama papers as well?
