Not a cyclist, but I handled some Pedaled jackets a few years ago and was impressed. Lots of cycling details without making the jacket look like it's necessarily just for cycling.

Mission Workshop and Levis also have these sorts of things

Thanks for the recommendations. I had a look at the Pedaled jackets and it looks like what I am after

I picked this TM Lewin merino jumper up yesterday. I have way too many blue and brown jumpers. I needed some other colour in my wardrobe, but is this too pink?

 

(quick picture, so I didn't iron the shirt)

It's likely that they were wearing a Korean brand called 'Pleatsme', which is more readily available and significantly cheaper than Issey http://www.pleatsme.co.kr/.

loads of young women around east london wearing issey-style straight leg trous. i assume zara or someone has managed to make a reasonable knockoff

Is Issey having a moment right now? Feel like the hip young women of the internetz all collectively moved on Pleats Please a while back. Maybe seen more men's around too online / in stores (was looking at Homme Plisse in Liberty's the other week which is a pretty new line iirc)

Same in Stockholm.

Its almost like the standard somewhat-alternative style for women right now is voluminous trousers, long unstructured flowy coat, simple tee/shirt all in white/black/grey worn with some more playful sneakers. I think it would be considered very experimental just 3 years ago.

Even Philadelphia is now saturated with Stan Smiths.

Tiresome, but I suppose it's better than everyone wearing sneakers that are objectively ugly.

TFW you realize next-level SWD is just being basic in womenswear.

Startups like Warby Parker, Bonobos and Casper have proven that it’s possible to build a modern brand predominately using digital tools. As a result, a flood of early-stage tech VCs have barged into the market like Walmart shoppers on Black Friday.

Andy Dunn of Bonobos recently christened this class of company as Digitally Native Vertical Brands, or “DNVBs.” His basic definition of a DNVB is “a brand born on and primarily experienced via the internet that features a vertically-oriented business model which combines the margin of the retailer and brand.” It’s a great definition of the “Warby for X” phenomena.

I've never understood how this is different from catalog retailing, which is over a hundred years old at this point. LL Bean, Sears Roebuck, Montgomery Ward, Banana Republic, Eddie Bauer J. Crew, etc.

A lot of that activity has now moved online, but the "vertically integrated" marketing-speak isn't that different from a lot of those aforementioned retailers. They also "combined the profit margins of retailers and brands."

I suppose most of them had brick and mortars, but so does Warby Parker at this point. "Vertically integrated," "direct to consumer" models don't seem terribly new. They've just been digitized, which transforms scalability and tracking, but not the inherent business model.

Random non-fashion complaint: I hate it when people use words such as "science" and "physics" to describe things that aren't at all scientific (e.g. "respect the laws of retail physics").

I read things like this and I think to myself, "It's 1999 all over again".

We need a good recession to sort out the real businesses from the posers.
