He said he would send me one for free, but in return he wanted a photo of the jacket that needed it (after I had told him I was searching for said jacket and finally got it, he was curious which of his pieces I was fiending for)

My mistake: I took this rare opportunity to send him a pic of all my Geller jackets as well and started to gush over how much I loved his work. I had activated fanboy mode. I think I creeped him out, because he stopped responding to me. Months later I followed up because I was heading to NYC (he had originally asked if I could pick it up from [presumably] his studio) but no dice.

WE COULD HAVE BEEN FRIENDS, ROBBIE. YOU AND I COULD HAVE BEEN TOGETHER

TLDR; go ahead and email, but act aloof and pretend you don't give a shit about him

I just don't understand the aversion to buying 52's that so many places have.

Has anyone inquired if Totokaelo and Forward are still carrying Geller this season?

Robert will never answer my emails personally and we will never drink coffee talking about fashion and soccer and life in New York and other stuff

Life sure is hard man.

Toto is. A bit of digging on their site has links for their buy, but no pics yet

If fwrd doesn't it will be weird considering revolve is carrying some things.

Does Geller check this thread from time to time? It's possible to keep up with most posts reading like 20 minutes, once a week. This thread is pretty slow, unlike waywts and sales alert and the like.

 

I mean, it's good for a company to have your consumers' feedback, but above that, as a fashion designer, as a person who creates things, it must feel revigorating to see for yourself how your enthusiastic your consumers are about what you created.

Threads like the SLP official thread, for example, always have people shitting on Hedi and his aesthetic, but here 100% of the people love Geller's work.

 

I never go full fanboy mode over stuff I like but seriously, he has been putting consistent seasons year after year, never losing his touch, and the man himself seems to be a pretty nice dude

I read in an interview last year he even plays soccer, he must be good at it

 

Robert if you're reading this please make a new version of that green bomber you're always wearing, we want to look cool too

I just hope that the brick & mortar store comes to fruition, or at least a webstore like Ervell. Seems like there would be more chance of full size runs and stuff.
