Are there any good brands that bridge that gap? Is there any specific reason these fashion-oriented brands don't go the extra mile and stitch their goddamn armpits up?

There is no reason for them to so.  The clothes are sold to fashion boutiques for a fashion customer.  

 

Also, performance clothing is a very specialized field, and a lot of designers just don't have that type of background.

my guess is they'll have an end of season sale at the end of the season

you guys are doing it wrong, don't want anything and if it goes on sale then say oh look that thing i like is on sale then copcopcop

OMG everyone is always buying common projects. Do people buy a pair or two every year?
post #29692 of 35347
I buy multiples occasionally (the white or black all leather ones) because prices seem to go up every season now and if it's at a sale price, then it shouldn't be that hard to unload for the same price in b&s

COMMON projects

post #29694 of 35347
I have a pair of black and white Achilles I never wear lol also a pair of mid tans

They look great but they're not that comfortable.
post #29695 of 35347
They seem well made but, honestly, they're kind of boring. I mean they're kind of like Italian leather Keds. That silly golden serial number has got to be getting old by now...
post #29696 of 35347
I dislike a lot of their models because of the stupid numbers. I find it barely passable on the sneakers. Haven't found a better alternative though.

How else would we let people know that we wear expensive minimalist shoes?

post #29698 of 35347
I bet you live for plebes actually recognizing and complementing your unremarkable yet expensive shoes. But I guess I can't be too critical. I love my MMM gats...

IIRC Suspension Point's markdowns don't coincide with any particular event.

The people who picked up Rick that one time certainly made money from B&S/e-bay. foo.gif

I think they move tons of product because they have good support, there fairly well known, picture angles of items are fantastic, descriptions are good, and size charts are fucking great! also there site is super easy to navigate, and find what your looking for.

Also you could remove the serial number of Common Projects with acetone. Never done it but read plenty of people did. I once had an addiction to Common Projects owned 12 pairs at once before all nice models that I actually wore and wanted. But it was a little much and now Im down to one pair, and moved on too MMM Gats. I need help! :smarmy:
