being I overindulged last S/S I'm limiting myself to about 4 or 5 pieces this go-round..
definite kops are the red/salmon hoodie (not that I need another f'ing hoodie...but it's red!) and also one of the heathered blue polos with madras collars. My white with red gingham collar from last year was a major win and I'm glad they decided to continue that. I know opinions will be split on the madras/contrast collars, but I'm a fan.
I'm very drawn to this shirt, but to me it seems a piece better suited for Russel Brand or some Hollywood type, the like. I also don't like how long the shorts appear to be. Those are rolled over as one complete cuff and still sit mid knee - where I would like them to sit naturally, without a cuff. But short model I suppose..
The sweats appear to be very similar to year's passed. The charcoal looks to closely resemble the f/w'10 Reigning Champ sweats, except slightly different stitching and a little more salt than pepper when compared to the RC's recycled fleece. Glad the sweat shorts are back too. Those have been my go to sleeping shorts. Also nice for the gym in the winter, considering the weight.
A lot of vests in the look book. Not my thing. One of them looks cool though. Agreed @ "LOL at three top layers with shorts and flip flops."....especially considering the base layer appears to be the fall/winter chabanel henley.
Look forward to seeing the rest of the collection.
Was at Holt Renfrew on Bloor St. today and they just received a small shipment from the S/S '11 season this morning. They received the Mackintosh (tan), the Nep Dungaree shirt (black and indigo) and the large loop terry hoodie (grey). Was hoping they would have the Terry Sweat Pants but they didn't. Have a buddy who works at Holts (last day today) and could get me 50% off but couldn't pull the trigger on any of them. I remember somebody asking about the large loop terry hoodie. The fabric was kinda like a knit sweater material.
Holy F. The black sweats just went from fully stocked to only a size S in a matter of 10 minutes. I sincerely hope this was Roden's intent. Otherwise I feel for them (or the poor employee who just screwed the p00ch on their website..) And I'm gonna get me a new pair of CP's! edit;
