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.
