Thom Browne trying too hard... - Page 11

He looks like some sweetly retarded scandinavian gent who will eventually kill the mayor's daughter and be killed by an angry mob. He just didn't know his own strength

Yes, you're doing fine, but if you were 6'2" and a size 40 you'd be AMAZING! LOL, I'm a bit of a body fascist I guess.

Bergdorf's Thom Browne push (summarized from DNR):

Starting in August Thom is going to occupy all 3 floors of Bergdorf Goodman. The couture shop will remain on 3. The 2nd floor will have a more classic and "sartorial line" of basic suits, shirts and ties. The first floor will have a shirt/tie shop with the shirts in the grey boxes (I can post pics of mine when I went to the Tribeca store) with a grosgain ribbon wrapped around it and the fabric swatch on the outside.

The suits are going to run $3400-4200 and shirts $325-$395. Ties will stay the same around $160 and be made from suit swatches.

Right now the sizing of TB stands at 0-3 (36, 38, 40, 42) and the "sartorial line" will also have 4s and 5s.

Couldn't they have thought of a more creative title than 'King of Fashion'? Paul Poiret was rather famous in his own day, but all these "rediscoveries" are tedious.

Even then, I think they could have conceived of something less insipid.

Besides, Poiret was known for his rather bombastic statements.

"King of Fashion" is a very bombastic, it is a term he coined for himself.

He also outfitted an extravagant barge to take on the River Seine in order to reverse his fortunes. The large boat had things by Dufy and the whole exercise essentially bankrupted him.

I think we may soon need to change the forum's name from styleforum to fashionista-forum. There is nothing stylish about the pictures posted in this thread

I was really just joking when I originally posted that comment BTW The outdoors photos really show off your outfits much better than the mirror photos. I know the convienience of the mirror photos, but these photos look great!
