Really like this.
Zam's prices are not bad at all. Especially considering the quality.
I have some LUC pants that cost me more than double what I paid for similar pants from Zam. I ended up selling the LUC ones because I actually preferred his.
Also rick and zam are a completely different aesthetic. I would never be caught dead in 90% of the pieces put out by RO.
If the pieces dont fit, you return them to him...???
And saying ZB is "amateur work" is laughable.
Different strokes for different folks. I understand the points you are making fully.
I do live in LA though, and rarely get weird looks. Who gives a damn about the "tastes" of people where you live... Wear what you like.
I think its more of a "do it out of respect" policy. It's only for the sale. Not clothes bought at retail price. Though I don't understand why he does it.
I have a tailor currently doing this to a pair of painters canvas j pants I have from him. Im curious to see how it turns out. I'm expecting the worst. She told me she could "straighten" them for an extra fee. Lol.
