Watch out reductionism!

Hey @conceptual 4est were you able to sell that Coppens rug jacket? Curious how easy it is to sell something special like that.

It's high, but if you buy it in Japan, it's still like 1/3 to 1/2 the price of MA+. It's also all really nice with excellent details, amazing fabrics, and great construction. He's got a couple great designs he iterates on season to season that are really well thought-out. It's a really fun mix of sporty and artisanal, all of it pretty easy to wear. That said, I still don't own a lot of pieces. I don't like some of the details (tyvek lining, metal buttons) and some of the fits (long arms, tight shoulders, low-rise on pants). I always look forward to seeing it in person.

Some of the tyvek made the clothes feel a little weird / super crisp, and the fit can be boxy or just roomy in some places. Pants are probably more consistent, cuts are similar to M.A+ (maybe I say this just because he used to work there) but there's more formal cuts in crisp materials (ramie, nylon) and jersey/sweatpants comfy stuff. It feels kind of like Schieder, where you have to experience it in person to really know what's up. 

But also @nicelynice
 and @magicalporks
 are going to do some reconnaissance ~~soon~~. 
I have a jacket and it's by far the best thing I've bought in a long while - the only issue is he makes the sleeves so long. The partial tyvek lining doesn't bother me at all, I like the metal buttons and I really like the cut and back paneling detail. I'll post a picture soon.

Oh and I hate the cut of the trousers (too slim and low rise) and way prefer the jackets as tighter shoulders fit me well.

Lift and Carrefour stock Taichi and those are the only two stores I care to visit lately, so it works out for me. Both stores also get quite a lot of original pieces, samples, and one-offs. Boutique W also stocks Taichi

Nah, I pulled all listings, as I'd rather have the jacket at this point. That said, I'm of course always open to offers

I'm glad you kept it. It's, like, the signature c4est piece!

TFW a customer service rep says an item won't be stocked for a week, but then is stocked and sells out within the next couple hours.
post #7692 of 17073
Tfw a designer you love has fucked up sizing and you can't wear it.
Size 5 = XL according to the designer but the shop selling it says it's a XXL/38 waist and another shop says 5=L/36 but it fits me like a medium/32 at best 🤔

I think I'll just stick with Lemaire and Yohji and Issey 1 size fits all pants.

Somewhere there's probably an interview where the designer says the wonky sizing was intentional so clients would have to try on the clothes and judge the sizing for themselves. It's like motherfucker almost all your business is online. Guh

Fwiw I'm talking about Lucio so I partially blame you for turning me onto him...
post #7695 of 17073
Lool, his sizing is the worst. 3 is "officially" a small but fits me more like an extra small. I've started thinking of his sizing system as the same as Schneider's. But I've never tried the pants

edit: that said, I can't wait until The Corner stocks ss16! That asymmetrical trench in the stripey fabric...
