I love garment bags. I have a bunch of bbs ones (in different sizes and weight resistance) that I´ve been using instead of backpacks.

whats the deal with porter buys; why are they becoming weaker? i cant even be bothered at 70% anymore, which is effectively a 55-60% discount given their inflated retail prices. I need atleast 80% off to buy a $90 jcrew shirt

I've been disappointed with MrPorter in 2013. I don't know if it's a random thing or what, but the buys do not seem as cool, the sizes are very infrequently XS now, and there seem to be almost too many brands. I don't need 400 makers of backpacks.

mr.porter made a great first impression upon me, and I only hoped they would improve but their offerings certainly dropped off. its a shame because I was so ready to continue buying some premium shit at steep discounts

Mr. Porter works fine for basics on discount esp. in non fashun forum sizes (US 40 and up). Nobody's getting crazy shearlings for cheap anymore, but I picked up some staple ties. You can always return too, which is a plus when trying new stuff out for (relatively) cheap.

someone should grab that b+ cord camo blazer, pictures suck and do not do it justice, its hard to describe or show in pics but everytime somebody has gotten up close to it (on me) they compliment the subtle camo under the cord 'cuz it just looks olive/khaki otherwise, I kopped at retail and no regrets, small fits 44/46 btw

that beam+ camo blazer...... too bad it's not Medium

Porter is just buying what they know will sell. They've done risky buys and it didn't work for them. They're a great company and are obviously smart in wanting to sell stuff at retail, which most things do. I can't tell you how many things I bought at retail that never made it past sale. Fashion has been getting pretty boring lately in general. It's like the film industry. Designers are catering to what the public likes or will buy. Rick Owens recently said he's bored of fashion and isn't going to reinvent the wheel anymore so he will stick to basic tweaks in his designs. When I went to Saint Laurent HQ everyone was talking about how Hedi wants to do less statement fashion and more everyday cali styles. Luxury versions of basic everyday wear because thats what people are wearing. If you go to fashion shows nowadays, everyone is wearing some sort of simple minimalist outfit with a pair of sneakers/nikes. Not quite sure what the deal is but I don't mind it.

mr porter was ok at best in the beginning but their problem is 99% of their brands are garbage now

love what synth said about slp in the other thread lol8[1].gif

Mr Porter sucks because I can't buy nice clothes from them for dirt cheap anymore. They should focus more on #hotdeals and less on running a successful business.
