They have an interesting assortment of brands with labels that are less mainstream than most, similar mostly to how Carson Street rebranded themselves: Lemaire, Dries, Umit Benan, Herno, and the reason I went there, Hed Mayner, whose stuff is very Encens magazine and looks like Lemaire did 5 years ago. Think Lemaire but super oversized with stiffer fabrics. In fact they merchandise it next to the Lemaires...

Hed Mayner is dope, hopefully more people pick his (her?) stuff up.

Would be interesting to see where Mayner goes with his collections. For me Mayner's stuff is maybe a little too derivative of Lemaire's work from around 2009-2012, but still beautiful. I went looking for it because I still love Lemaire's original bigger proportions, but Lemaire has been slimming down his clothing lately, knocking back the volume/proportions and shortening the rises on his pants, so I wondered if Mayner could fill in that space for me where I still want old Lemaire.

I think Hed Mayner's editorial photos look really nice, but the actual clothing was very hit and miss, at least from the items Loit bought. Maybe I'm too short for his clothing, but the oversized elements were too oversized and yet not oversized enough, so much so that everything just looked badly fitted on me. Also I wasn't that convinced by the fabrications. He made a very stiff Mac fabric into an oversized Macintosh, but also did them for the pants I wanted to try on but I didn't even bother because the fabric was too heavy to wear, IMHO.

But well see how he develops in future collections.

If you Google Hed Mayner, you can find some of the really beautiful editorials he had shot. http://thenewworldordernyc.com also carries him in the US, but while I love their photos, I think it's very hard to see what the clothing looks like. Loit's site shows the items shot on a really good model (I can't believe they got Robert Sipos) but in hindsight, I should have realized that Sipos is 6'2" and those items he was wearing are the smallest size that Loit stocks. OccultaVexillum, you might get away with it more.

Sorry if this is a bit of a Lemaire derailment...

That's good to know. I've never handled any of his stuff but I've liked what I've seen. Neighbor carries some good pieces and there's another Nth American shop I can't think of, I always thought the new world order only carried vintage pieces/2nd hand pieces?

Yeah, I saw Neighbour's buy too, and wondered about the tees, although I could get those from other brands.

That's what I thought too about New World Order, but maybe they're blurring the lines a bit by selling Mayner's recent collection. I believe the pieces are from 2015 and non of the current stuff. Maybe that's vintage enough for them, haha

UnionLA is also carrying Hed Mayner, they missed SS16 and only got some last leftover pieces but id imagine they will more for next season. Never used UnionLA myself but they always seem to have interesting buys.

That Hed Mayner stuff looks great.

NYT mentioned Lemaire recently in their article about "A Bigger Splash"

Every now and then, a movie succeeds as much because of its style — the clothes, the cars, the hair — as its story. When a guy’s coolness leaps out from the screen, there is usually a sexy actor whose sense of style matches how dangerous his character is: Steve McQueen in his black turtleneck, holsters on display, in “Bullitt”; Ryan Gosling in a retro bomber jacket with a scorpion on the back in “Drive.”

Add to the list Ralph Fiennes for his role in the Italian thriller “A Bigger Splash.”

Mr. Fiennes plays Harry Hawkes, a shady music producer who goes on vacation with his rock star former girlfriend (Tilda Swinton) and her new boyfriend (Matthias Schoenaerts), packing his bag full of high-priced designer clothes and bringing along with him heaps of trouble.

To help set the mood of the film — which owes a possible debt to “La Piscine,” the 1969 Jacques Deray study of murder and mayhem starring Alain Delon and Jane Birkin — there were 1940s-inspired linen shirts made for Mr. Fiennes at Charvet, the famed Paris clothing shop; billowing trousers from M. Bardelli, the classic Milanese tailor; and one distinctive white, green and gray short-sleeve shirt from Christophe Lemaire that the actor wears while dancing around the house to the Rolling Stones hit “Emotional Rescue.”

Naturally, Mr. Fiennes leaves the shirt open — the better to show off his well-maintained 53-year-old torso and to convey a mischievous sexuality.

According to Luca Guadagnino, the director of “A Bigger Splash,” the overarching concept was for the clothes to be a “second skin” for Mr. Fiennes, helping him become someone playful and loose, but also “sophisticated and urban.”

And Mr. Guadagnino was clearly pleased that Mr. Lemaire sent the sample of the shirt to his costume designer, Giulia Piersanti, having become a fan of the designer sometime around 2010.

Back then, Mr. Lemaire was designing for Hermès and Mr. Guadagnino had just finished “I Am Love,” his couture-clad collaboration with Ms. Swinton that has become a favorite among the fashion set. (Many of Ms. Swinton’s costumes in “I Am Love” and “A Bigger Splash” were designed by Raf Simons, the former creative director of Jil Sander and Dior.)

I thought it was interesting how Hed Mayner was mentioned. Are there any other brands people would recommend if they love Lemaire? 

I really dig the fabrics they use, the silhouette and colour palettes.

Maybe Eidos Napoli

Camoshita

post #808 of 1139
Issey Miyake, umit benan, Lucio Vanotti, sunnei. There's another guy I'm forgetting, his label closed for a while and started again recently, from the UAB I think.
post #809 of 1139
Camoshita is a good one

Umit is cool but fits never worked for me...sizing seemed 2x tagged size but it may also be dependent on the season.

Lucio Vanotti is too simple from what I have seen and the fabrics do not appear great.
post #810 of 1139
Lucio fabrics are really good, from everything I've handled (a decent amount), but sizing sucks because the corner is stupid. They list a size 5 pants as 38 waist, but it's actually a 34 and the same size 5 is called a XXL but it's an L. Because of that you basically can't buy anything unless you're tiny since there's no other stockists outside of eu.
