That is going to require some further explanation in order for me to understand

I'm pretty sure that what he's saying is that following the split of Plokhov and Geller and their collaborative work, Geller has done a much better job with finding his own style and "aestethic" than Plokhov has (who just does reiterations of old Helmut Lang collections)

I'm a little surprised and happy Geller is still around now too with how much of his stuff makes it to sale and how many stores carry his line in North America which has changed over the past few years. Maybe (and hopefully) his stuff sells really well in Japan.

I really like his line and try to buy a couple pieces at retail every year but my wardrobe is getting filled and I don't have a need for some stuff anymore. I have 2 bomber jackets and a hooded one, a sleeveless hoodie, 4 or 5 sweaters/sweatshirts, 2 Richard pants, 2 jeans, 3 tanks, a few tees, and a bunch of his seconds line hoodies and tees. I also just got married and with the wedding cost and saving up for a house I can't really afford to buy anything now.

With that said I don't get the feeling that he is jacking up prices to pay back his financiers or anything like that. I have never felt he has done any of this to get rich, I truly believe he loves what he does.

I always felt that John Elliott was a more streetwear take on Geller and used him as inspiration for a lot of his designs and layering. I feel Geller could have done that with his seconds line but didn't. Also with that said I don't like the brand John Elliott, some of the people in there and some stuff about them rubs me the wrong way but that is a whole different story.

I was gonna get some Suicokes anyway, and a couple of the Geller Suicokes just hit sale. Did anybody grab a pair of those, and how are they? I'm thinking the neoprene heel cap could either be really awesome or really annoying.

Imo there are better standalone suicoke models or collabs with other brands but i too succumbed to copping a geller collab just because. Its not mind blowing or anything... The heel cap is not a nuisance in any measure.

This thread is too doom and gloomy.
I ordered the Luca pants, everything I have is black, navy or grey so these should be dope. I'm thinking of the cupro shirt for the next kop.

Thanks @kindofyoung, at first I had interpreted the comment as Geller was doing archival Helmut Lang. Though I'd still argue with Plokhov's career after Cloak with half a decade of his creative namesake label he can't just be reduced or dismissed as "making reiterations of helmut lang archives".

On a much less serious not has anyone taken a loot at Mevyn's product descriptions?

Old Robby Gell is a smart dude. You would have expected a rust-colored topcoat in an Autumn/Winter collection, right? Well, the G-man doesn’t subscribe to your expectations and decided to drop this pumpkin-spice gem for Spring/Summer ’16. It’s really the ultimate low-key flex, since you can now look like the single orange leaf in a forest of green.

The Boucle Combo Sweater is what I picture the cool alternative kids wearing in 90’s teen movies. I was not a cool alternative kid in high school—more like a cool adjacent kid at best, but that’s where Robert Geller, guardian of unrealized dreams, comes in. Stretch out the sleeves on this sweater and pair it with some bleached out denim and you too can look like the cool kid you never were—even if you’re thirty years old like me.

Can anyone explain why Inspector Gadget has extendable bionic arms, but not sleeves that stretch with them? Well, Robert Geller has one-upped the writers of everyone’s favorite French-Canadian cyborg detective cartoon with his Adjustable Sleeve Shirt, which features three-quarter-length sleeves that can be cinched up based on the wearer’s preference. If you’re a fan of both or either of the two G-men you better go-go-get yourself this shirt.

At first take, I wanted to imagine that The Vincent Hooded Bomber is named after Vincent Chase from HBO’s Entourage, but then I thought about how terribly he dresses and the reality that the show holds up horribly with age—not only is it unabashedly misogynistic, but it’s also poorly written. So, unlike the younger Chase brother The Vincent Hooded Bomber is agelessly stylish and built to last (just take a glance at all the clean finished seams); I guess, what I’m saying is if we’re talking HBO shows, Geller would have been better off naming it after The Wire.

This Robert Geller parka is something that my Californian self would have found comfort in because, let’s face it, it’s hardcore. With its length and cozy quilted interior, it’s slightly reminiscent of a sleeping bag but, being designed by Geller, is infinitely more stylish. But hey, if you ever get tired, you can always just pop the hood up, Velcro shut that collar, and peace out.

not related to Geller but in a similar vein, oi polloi does fantastic product descriptions as well

I was once going to make a comment about the product details and descriptions their copywriters do. It has a very Jon Moy from Four Pins feel to it and I found it to be pretty endearing especially as my boys and I talk to each other in that strange way that they captured in such few words.
