What happened to Tenue Denimes webshop, they had a lot of nice stuff.

Loved the quilted lining, too bad it sold out. Hancockva also has a preview shot of the collab they did with @Tirailleur1 on ig.

Just returned from my semi-annual shopping trip - this time it was Florence (for leather) and Milan (for everything else). With the dollar killing the Euro and pretty much everything at 40% off, I got a bit carried away.

 

Leather shopping isn't something I do often. I don't give a shit about labels (Only thing that makes Gucci jackets worth $3k is five letters that I don't find particularly interesting), and yet I don't like to compromise on quality. So, I go to where the factories and tanneries are and find a competent amateur designer or old family business. Unfortunately, most of the best ones don't sell anything online, so you really need to go in person.

 

Some of what you'll see on the racks:

 

 

 

 

 

The blouson and cafe racer style jackets seemed to be the most popular, as they were the most numerous, followed by classic Brando bombers and styles cut to look like two and three-button jackets. I maybe saw 5% Perfecto style moto jackets. But then, that is a very American style of leather jacket.

 

 

The style on the street in Milan is among my favorites of places I've been. The Italians have a way of combining classic-but-updated silhouettes with modern lines and novel fabrics that is all their own. But I'm still a bit too timid about street photography, so maybe next time.

 

If I had to mention one "must have" winter item for the men in Milan, based on what I saw, it would be this style of coat:

 

 

The black and gray herringbone chesterfield-ish long coat with some kind of hairy wool blend that reminded me of some chunky-but-firm Japanese fabrics. The hand feel on these is amazing. Some of the ones I saw got pretty outer worldly. The best example I found on a rack (not shown) was from Lanvin.

Sounds cool already. Tell T to get a move on producing clothes. Pics already look really good.

Re: Bowie, not sure how many people know just how much of an influence he was on Hedi, but Bowie came up repeatedly in this interview: https://www.yahoo.com/style/exclusive-hedi-slimane-on-saint-laurents-126446645943.html

There is that idea of androgyny, which is associated to my silhouette and design since the late ‘90s, and I presume a reflection of how I was, and how I looked growing up, the lack of gender definition. I could recognize it and feel a connection at the time with “The Thin White Duke“ character of Bowie. This is pretty much the origin of everything I did in design after that, a boy or a girl with the same silhouette.

Finally, you can have a hat that says both "I love Mickey Mouse" and "I'm an anglerfish"

My city has renamed the street I work on from "Bowie St" to "David Bowie St" which is cool as long as my package gets delivered.Will be ironic if this comes between me and fashion.

Six episodes out so far and each one of them has been pretty fantastic

It has also recently been renewed for a second season :slayer:

I want to buy some A Kind of Guise shirts or whatever but I hate the name so I won't. Yet another year passes by where I wonder why this affects me so much. Is this unreasonable
