I would buy from the olsen twins before russell simons wife or ex-wife.

I don't think Roc-a-Wear sells much any more but Sean John does, so does LRG and Ecko, surprisingly. They did try to adapt with the time though and stopped producing 3XL tall tees. Ecko even has their Cut & Sewn line that conceptually wasn't a bad idea, it was executed badly.

Went through the local mall today as I was buying the lady a gift and noticed that you can find three or four direct lifts from proper designers in both Gap and BR . Even same season stuff. Annoying when you've spent money on the real deal.

Why? Do you like the Gap/BR stuff better? If not, enjoy your shit.

Hard to knock off someone WHO DOESNT SELL CLOTHES EVER EXCEPT FOR A RETARDED SOCCER JERSEY.

Last chinos I bought were from J. Crew and the only reason I bought them was because they were on sale, I think for $40. Really comfortable and a nice fabric and the cut is nice. I went to the gap before hand and the same $40 chino's didn't feel as good or look as good, but it could all be in my head. I honestly don't know jack about clothes, nor do I care about name, just has to fit right right and be comfortable, J.Crew seems to do that stuff well, all though over priced sometimes. I just buy there sale stuff, so I don't know.

No way would I ever spend $200-$500. My price range is $40-$80 for a well made pair.

It boggles the mind that you seem completely uninterested in clothing or style, and feel compelled to tell everyone. It's not an uncommon attitude, but you've been a member since 2006, and apparently, like the place well enough to make a post every so often, so apparently, you are here for *some* reason.

He's here for the J.Crew thread

I can't really knock dudes like H&M for knocking off better designers, but I do knock them for perpetuating fast fashion. It's been said already here that the devolution of manufacture and manufacturing costs have probably done more harm than good, so when they want to be 'inspired' or let's face it, rip off better designs, is it all that surprising?

I honestly do not believe that they pay $24 a yard for fabric.

Who could have a problem with that?

Maybe that's why he killed himself.

He couldn't stand to live in a world without a clearly identifiable underclass of fashion lepers?

I've been kinda baffled seeing posts by people saying stuff like that too.
