Stephan Schneider. You'll Always Find Me In The Kitchen At Parties. - Page 513

post #7681 of 8679
Speaking of complexions I've always found it strange (and mildly racist) that the first answer you hear when Asian bros ask what color they should wear is "yellow." I think yellow goes better on people with skin hues more toward the blue end than the olive end.

I almost never wear reds except for the red quilted Junya vest. As with @LA Guy I'm in soft blue tones... probably too often. I've got a nearly identical skin tone to the Schneider model so hopefully I don't disgrace the beauty of that burgundy thinner jacket with my decidedly not-model face. Oh did I mention I'm in for the burgundy thinner jacket? biggrin.gif

@Benesyed In general, unlike some pure reds, I find burgundy to be very flattering on most skin-tones (from the very pale like me to darker and / or Asian like my colleague). It is a color that is less common so you might not have as much personal experience with it, but from what I've seen (fit pics and such) I think it would suit you well. There are several variations of burgundy that Schneider used in this collection (not to mention the wine and patterned color-ways), but the majority are neutral or cool in tone so that helps as well and makes it easier to pair with the rest of one's outfit.

 

I happen to love burgundy / wine so I was already compiling a personal order list within minutes of walking into the showroom...

I think that you have a very pale, nearly alabaster complexion, no?  That works well with a range of colors.  

 

I am distinctively Asian, and yellows, including the oatmeal in the collection, makes me look undead, but not in a cool way.  Greens, particularly blue greens, but even moss greens (so, black toned green with some yeloow) look good.  Or maybe I'm just lying to self.

Anyway, color theory is mostly bullox, just because there are nearly infinite combinations or complexion and the entire pantone book.

post #7685 of 8679

Indeed, I am very pale (ghostly you can say haha). Even for me, the oatmeal and beige (in this collection and in general) are quite difficult to wear as they can make me look sickly. My colleague (who is distinctively Asian like yourself) has issues as well.

 

Been seeing more and more of the moss green (dark grey-green) around lately which I am happy about. Burgundy as well which I am even more happy about.

 

Going back to the collection, other than the aforementioned oatmeal colors I think the majority of shades and tones are on point this season and will work on most people. The burgundy / wine was brought up because it is less common so some might not have experience with it, or at least not as much as different shades of blue or green. My colleague and I tried on a number of pieces and they looked really good on both of us (now if only the samples were actually my size).

Hi everyone, lurker here. As everyone else has chimed in, 07 instantly won my heart.

 

I know measurements can't be provided, but I'm only concerned about length. I'm reliably a XS/S, but as a 5'2" hobbit, length has always been a hit-or-miss. How do you guys think the Fresco would fare in this regard? ~23-24" center back length is a sweet spot for me,

Don't you already have Algae in blue/black? Maybe get something different? Personally I would go with a warmer darker tone like the wine or purple weave over another blue coat or grey coat that he'll do again.

Probably go with the size 3. Fresco will definitely be the superior choice as opposed to the conservation or film if you're 5'2.

Just a reminder that it is the last full day for the Styleforum Stephan Schneider preorders.  We have several unique makeups (The thinner jacket and Oil coat in the navy with reverse side wool, in particular), so this will your last chance to pick these up, not just now, but pretty much forever.  

 

Without further ado, here they are again:

 

The Styleforum preorders for Stephan Schneider AW16 are up!

http://www.styleforummarket.com/stephan-schneider-preorders-1/

Orders taken only until noon February 3, 2016.

 

This season, we've decided to give our members and followers a chance to get in on the action that we're reporting on from Paris Mens Fashion, which we got back from just earlier this week.

 

One of the nicest collections that we saw, bridging classic tailoring and designer wear, was that of Stephan Schneider.  This season, the inspiration were discarded oil paintings, painted over in blue and black.  The colors are correspondingly dark and quiet.  

 

The strength of every Stephan Schneider collection are the textiles, and we've chosen to focus on two of our favorites, a greyish blue wool cashmere fabric, and navy blue melange with a reverse in a blue and red pattern, the effect mirroring that of the inspiration.  We have two outerwear pieces for each of these fabrics.  Rounding them out is a beautiful navy basketweave coat that is sleek and sharp, and a pair of comfortable pants with a unique and subtle but striking pattern on the front panels.  Enjoy.

 

ALL PREORDERS CLOSE PROMPTLY AT NOON (12 PM) PST FEB 3, 2016.  No changes or orders will be taken after that.

 

You can see the entire selection on the Styleforummarket that we use to organize these preorders, here:

Remember to use the code SCHNEIDER20 for 20% off the preorder deposit.  The same 20% discount will given on the remainder before shipment to you.

 

Though pieces vary in sizing, the model is wearing a size IV for all pieces.  He is a small size 48 EU.

 

Here is the sizing conversion that many retailers use as a general guideline for Stephan Schneider pieces:

III 46 European

IV 48 European

V  50 European

VI 52 European

VII 54 European

In for the Thinner in Navy reverse melange wool!

That's really 100% wool eh? Looks amazing!
post #7691 of 8679
the fabrics from this collection are mind blowingly good. this collection is going down in the record books
post #7692 of 8679

I'm surprised no one is talking about the Resin jacket SP has for preorder:

 

 

 

Seriously considering selling my Score coat from last season in order to get the funds for the preorder. I don't know how good the odds are of any retailers picking it up as part of their general buy. Although the Conservation in the same fabric that NMWA has would be amazing too, just a pricier option.

^ reasonably priced too

That's my favorite especially since it's mid-weight.
