Has that been discussed before?

logistics would quickly get into the way of this. like renting a space large enough. say there's a buy in to get a space. how many people here are really likely to do that when the probability of something selling successfully at the proposed flea market is lower than it is to sell online? maybe over on the CM side, but they generate enough business on the B&S here... so what's the point?

They exist with sneakers so why not pants etc.

Maybe I'm overestimating the number of sales that would happen. I'm just imagining how many more items I would buy if I could try them on. But like I said, I'm just fantasizing not really interested in racking my brain over the logistics. I figured it was impractical for a bunch of reasons.

I dunno, this appeals to me a lot from a social standpoint vs. a profit-based one. I'd do this with no expectation of coming out in the black, just to meet cool people and see cool shit in person.

@LA Guy, rent out a Uniqlo for said event. The mailer can say "Meet me outside Uniqlo".

What is the general view of Tim Coppens? I have looked at his line the past few seasons and never really cared for anything in his collections. What am I missing?

When I make my first $10MM, I will definitely do that.

Or decorate Alcatraz to look like a Uniqlo, even better

Disappointed to find out this sweatshirt I wanted was mic so didn't end up buying. Maybe he shifted to bring the price level down.

I don't hate these.

 

I'm really torn on Greats. On one hand I'm inclined to like their general value proposition (even though some of these shoes are still pretty pricy). On the other I think they're kinda corny and all of their models seem pretty baldly derivative. On the third hand what sneaker model these days isn't derivative.

Just got back from a trip to Seattle to visit my friend, got a chance to stop in Totokaelo. Such a cool space, would definitely recommend visiting if you're in the area. I talked for a bit with one of the people that worked there and geeked out about Geller & Cloak (he was Ricked out from head to toe). Would have stayed way longer but wife & friend were bored pretty quickly by it

Does anyone happen to know what the fit is like on By Walid shirts? The measurements seem really small in shoulders and chest with an 'A shape'.
