MARK MCNAIRY NEW AMSTERDAM SPRING 2012 - Page 3

post #31 of 61
A little ambivalent about the fuckoff labels.... while interesting they remind me of my neighborhood cholo... and the i love new york cardi makes me cringe.
also the shape of the monkstraps look a little strange from the side, but that's just me. Almost all the other shoes are incredible though.
Loving the shorts, colorblock longsleeve, and the vest, though they seemed to be inspired / ripped off of other brands.

imo, the only good design that MM has outputted are his 8-pocket cargo pants - in terms of the slender cut/fit, proportions of pockets to pants... all of its subtle twists that elevate the usual frumpy-ness of cargo pants to a more sophisticated version with an edge. i have almost all his [solid color] versions; really not that keen on his camouflage/madras/patterny ones... those to me are MM trying too hard to be clever but in the end failing miserably and becoming tacky and cheesy... but seriously, for those that have not tried the pants, i highly recommend them smile.gif

i really don't see the hype of his shoes... their not constructed that well, and too many of them are elementary tongue-in-cheek one liner gimmicks played on otherwise totally conventional shoes... would take visvim's twists on the wingtips over any MM's anytime.

isn't that the point of most of MM's designs though?

Floral brogues are really dumb.
You just know you'd never wear them more than 1-2 times.
post #37 of 61
Those are all in the womens line. The only ones which look nice are the longwings though.
post #38 of 61
Oh okay, that should have been obvious enough huh.
post #39 of 61

The floral shoes are also for men.

 

All of McNairy's items are made-to-order so retailers have free reign as to what they want on the shoe, thus, the "collaborations" are merely just stores asking specifics on shoes. For example, Extra Place ordered the McNairy Digi-Camo wingtip in very small quantities and was the only U.S. retailer to have it! The McNairy we see online is just the tip of his actual designs. Hopefully more stores can carry his progressive-ivy-league designs.

Some of that stuff is good, in small quantities.

'I disagree. In my opinion, McNairy/Sanders are comparable to 1880 line in quality and materials; perhaps even better.'

100% wrong. The 1880 line are far better in quality. I own Loake and McNairy shoes, and the Loakes have a far better fit, higher quality materials, soles (the soles on the McNairys burn so quickly!) and cut!
post #43 of 61
I could agree with you about fit, but talking of materials, the insole and lining of my Loakes are visible cheaper quality.
and If you are you talking of red rubber soles, every EVA soles worn out quickly...

this is a pair of Kempton that I returned for many defects, the main is clearly visible I think...

and the store told me that is perfect quality...

by the way points of view...

What, lack of laces? tongue.gif (The soles, maybe.) I own a pair of Loake Kemptons and a pair of McNairy bucks, and it's pretty obvious the Loakes are superior in quality; I don't know what planet you live on! I am not saying that McNairy's shoes are bad, per se, but to claim that they are better than Loake is dubious.
post #45 of 61
My friend, buy a pair of good glasses...and you will see that the nap/grain of those Kemptons is totally different between left and right shoe.

However...I wrote that are comparable, using terms like "in my opinion"
you wrote "100% wrong" and "I don't know what planet you live on"

I think that is useless to continue.
Thank you...
