It's more like an instant messaging conversation.

Relating to the instant messanging, and other designers I once had an online conversation in which I, and the other person discussed how the famous fashion designer's personalities would be based on factors such as interviews, physiognomy, etc. We both said that Tom Ford was the most rude, and probably mean. Jil Sander, and oscar de la Renta seemed nice, and Karl Lagerfeld was rather ambiguous. Yves Saint Laurent as well seemed to be a friendly person albeit somewhat senile. There were over 50 people conversed upon.

Interesting. I often consider what the personality of the designer might be based on the clothes that they design. It doesn't surprise me to hear that Tom Ford is very rude, and that Jil Sander is more amiable. I don't know enough about YSL. Based on his elitist clothing and the look of his models, I would imagine that Hedi Slimane would be quite snooty.

I can tell you exactly what they are like. Ford is a fool. Hilfiger is a fool. Slimane, a fool. Lagerfeld is a bizarre abomination. Margiela simply parrots my every innovation. Armani, Lauren - populist imbeciles. Varvatos, de la Renta - insects, not even worthy of my attention. That is all.

I have several expensive suits. But one of my favorites and best-fitting believe it or not is one of yours that I bought in Marshalls for $139. It's a basic 2 -button charcoal number -- classic business wear, and it fits better than most suits that cost 3 times that.

Strange.......no matter how old the joke gets, there's always someone who thinks it's funny enough to repeat.

Wow, its the GQ forum, pt. II. Where's Steve and J when we need them? With respect to inviting actually designers to the forum, I would like to throw out some trade names that might be interesting to include... 1) Oswald Boateng or Richard James Yes, Boateng has the reputation of being a poor schill of a tailor, but his styling is quite interesting. I think RJs stuff is just ridicously nice. 2) James Amesbury One of the few non-fossilized owners of fine shoemaking. 3) Whoever heads the clothing division at Wal Mart or Target. How do YOU decide what the masses will be wearing?

I think we should invite these people: Olga Berluti Massimo Bizzochi(sp) The head of Saks, Neimans, Barneys. Louis Boston Buyers from Maxfield, Colette, Corso Como, Takayashimi Various Saville Row tailors Various designers such as Karl Lagerfeld, Giles Deacon, et al

Ok, it was hilarious for a while but it's over now. No more posts from the designers, and no more on this thread.

If you want to start a thread about inviting real designers, make a new one. This one is venturing near 'too far' territory.
