My cobbler (who is used by a lot of people on the forum) mentioned that he's no longer able to use the polishes that he typically carries/uses. He also no longer does dye jobs. And the flammable business permit price doubled. He thinks next up are the glues...

The very large scale prints are mainly from the past three decades.

We were planning on seeing the Hilma af Klint exhibition at The Serpentine as well, but ran out of time - has anyone been? On the plus side we did find a London pub that served decent beer, had good lunches, wasn't jam packed and wasn't exorbitantly priced - it's a bit like finding a unicorn.

Hilma af Klint is/was fantastic, I saw the (same I guess) exhibit a couple of years ago in Stockholm. Very strong experience.

This is funny on so many levels. "My $1000 Jesus t-shirt caught fire!!"

Agreed - the fabric is something else in person. I've never handled a nylon that had such a matte, dry hand. Really feels like a thick, brushed cotton. Glad you guys are carrying the brand, it's nice stuff!!

Just realized they have a store in Roppongi Hills, I'll drop by after work..

Also interested in the Fly Knit jacket

Oh cool I've used him before, have you ever added protective soles with him?

I bring all of my shoes/boots there for topy or heel needs. I don't have super crazy instructions and just let him do his thing.

Schoolgirl in front of me on the train has some really cool hand-stitched sashiko repairs on the back of her school blazer - they usually wear their uniforms for three years everyday and repair as necessary as they're quite expensive. Was gonna snap a stealth pic for y'all until I realized that's creepy as hell

Enjoy this pic instead, a sure sign that spring has sprung: stupid vetements raincoats

I"ve wanted one of those minotaur lounge suits for a little bit, last one I remember looking at was jersey, knit one looks way better, the change in pattern at the elbow is nice

neither do i, just add vibram soles/heels and heel taps. I was curious if you liked the work. I've seen some really really bad protective sole jobs on nice boots where the protective sole is slightly peeling off and it just looks awful. My current guy is great but started charging a lot, i think it was $80/90 last time i had protective soles added.
