There's a million thousand billion stuff out there. When you walk shows like Pitti or the Paris and NYC shows, you see aisles and aisles of stuff. It's mind-numbing how much stuff is out there and how much is forgettable (ask @willy cheesesteak or @coolron who did it with us this season...). What we do is find the most awesome stuff for you guys. Our taste doesn't necessarily connect with everyone's here - and that's perfectly normal - but when it does connect, we feel that you can trust us (beyond pictures) when we say something is badass.
This coat is badass
Actually, all of the pieces in that fabric were awesome - I picked out something else as my favorite, but in the same fabric - that's the beauty of it. Two people look at the same collection, recognize really good stuff, and personal tastes are the differentiating factor.
But, to reiterate Greg's point - there is an insane amount of stuff out there, and it seems to be only growing. When I went to my first tradeshow, over 16 years ago now, the shows seemed much smaller. I was also in my 20s, and had a lot more energy to walk the shows, but in tradeshows alone, a slew of them have risen up in the past decade or so, from Capsule to Liberty to any number of more niche shows, and the number of labels has exploded.
