Can attest that the technical details are not just token gestures. The nylon ripstop layer in the thermal fleece jacket is a very effective windbreak. And the two layers of fleece make it a very warm jacket as far as light jackets go. As a bonus, the slim sleeves make it ideal for layering underneath a heavier coat for colder days.
I also picked up the black trousers, and they are absolutely stunning. Obviously fit is highly personal, but I've never had a pair of trousers fit me so perfectly. The only reason I had to take them to the tailor's was to finish the hems (speaking of which, the unfinished hem is a provision that I really appreciate). And the fabric is by far the most luxurious wool I've ever laid hands on. For those that care about such things, they're lined down to about the knee (the pockets - front and back - are lined as well).
One thing I'd like to point out, that may not be obvious to those unfamiliar with Peir's work and/or just looking at pictures, is the masterful tailoring. The thermal jacket, for example, has a paneled construction that gives it a very interesting structured silhouette (in stark contrast to the loose, lifeless structure typical of most fleece jackets) that I think is an ingenious twist on performance outerwear. "A futuristic, minimalistic perversion of performance outerwear" is how I described it in a conversation with Joseph.
The deconstructed jacket from this past spring/summer was also similarly well-tailored - roped shoulders and a tailored fit in the back for structure, yet an open (but not sloppy) front.
While I'm gushing, I'll also mention details. Peir does not
fuck around on details. Laser cut edges, shoulder construction, fully finished waistbands, hand-finished appliqués (which unfortunately I don't have any direct experience with yet), lined pockets, pocket placement (the pockets on the thermal jacket are so perfectly integrated into the seam of the jacket that you wouldn't even know they were there if not for the zipper pulls [which are quite cleverly nondescript themselves]), nothing is overlooked.
Anyways, hopefully I've shared some valuable information. I'd love to see more people experience Peir's clothes, she's a very interesting and very talented designer. And at the risk of sounding like I'm shilling for someone, we're very lucky that it's Suspension Point that sells Peir's work - Joseph is very knowledgeable and provides extremely good customer service.
