Is anybody doing a hidden placket band collar in a basic white or even light blue poplin or something? It seems like somebody out there would but I can't find anything.

Yeah, that alpaca, though I personally think that the shawl collar thing is more interesting.  

 

I find that with SWD, the constraints are much more severe than in CM/casual menswear, in terms of getting projects off the ground,


The alpaca jacket would be the most popular re-issue option, imo - after NMWA did the Merino, the alpaca seems to be what's nabbed the quickest through resale venues.

Think MrP had a CoS shirt like that recently. Check it out

I think that it's cool.   We've actually been talking to Schneider since 2013.  I was sidelined from talks with them due to medical issues, and I didn't have the occasion to meet them in Paris since then, but I'm hoping that we start talking to them again later this month.

As some of you may know, a contingent of the Styleforum team to going to be in Paris (January 19-26) this winter.  @Synthese and I, as well as Jen (my wife and the person who keeps my ideas semi-sane) and our photographer, Eric, will be doing store features and reviews, going to all the tradeshows our little brains will allow without explosion, as well as private show room visits.  We'll also have a guy who can actually take real photographs (wow), as well as a fluent French speaker (Jasper) as well as a guy who spent his childhood speaking French for much of the day (moi) but who is really rusty, and whose passable French will probably improve as the week progresses.  

 

I'd love to hear from you guys.  is there a store you'd be really interested in seeing the insides of, any particular brand you'd like us to visit, any specific project you'd like turn into a GMTO, any rerelease you'd jump on like a fat kid on chips, because you missed that excellent piece and are now beating yourself over with reverse buyer's remorse?

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.


sounds great. Id love to contribute with more recs, but it's been 12 yrs since i lived in Paris... and having spent all my working life abroad, i ve never shopped for jawnz there. So i m very interested to see what you'll come up with

I'd like to learn more about Unity. I have several items that are well made, visually interesting yet very wearable, but i cant seem to find much info about that label online. Also, I second the L'Eclaireur rec, it's very much like the Paris equivalent to Tokyo's Lift, but 3 or 4 times bigger.

Re: Carry-on luggage.

I'm planning to get one of these guys (~$160 on Amazon). I never use all the pockets and organization stuff in my suitcase anyway.

@LA Guy If you're visiting a showroom with Holger, I'd be excited to see Individual Sentiments, ma+ or m_moriabc maybe

The AM craze is as annoying as the Chuck, Timberland lemmings.

Man, if people look good and feel comfortable who cares.

How is it possible that I got to try on Paraboot shoes at a store and still get the sizing wrong?

I kinda like the AM95 "craze", but I'd hardly call it a craze since it's not that dominant as Chucks was from what I see. Chucks were everywhere while AM's seem more restricted to certain parts of Copenhagen. And AM95's are more interesting than Chucks in my objective opinion.

I think he meant 1s, have yet to see a single pair of 95s or TNs in Uppsala but there is a ridiculous amount of 1s (also a ridiculous number of girls all wearing the same: white am1s, black tight jeans, black leather jacket and black/white tee)
