I'm curious: if the label reverts back to YSL-branding, as seemed to be implied in the interview posted a while back, would that not also in effect make all Saint Laurent Paris-tagged items 'unsellable', ie. recalled and retagged, or marked down? Similar to when Hedi first took over. Of course they could also operate with both brand names registered, though that would dilute their standing somewhat.
@SirGrotius I've been eyeing that jacket as well. I'm looking to pick up a versatile blazer this season, since I don't own much of their tailoring, aside from my Le Smoking.
It's quite versatile...if you're in a somewhat less conservative field (e.g., advertising, tech, start-up, etc.). I'm in the market-research field, so could wear it with some of my clients, not all. Obviously, perfect for going out, etc.
It's fully canvassed, very solid construction. I had to get the sleeves taken up a bit (from the shoulder), buttons opened on the cuffs, and about an inch off the length since I'm 5'6". Very good feel.
