Random fashion thoughts - Part II (A New Hope) - Page 647

post #9691 of 13804

be warned that sleeves on Blackmeans jackets are comically short. Like there is "short", "too short", "wearing your little sisters jacket", then Blackmeans

 

And I'm comfortable with slightly short sleeves, but I just wanted to say be sure to try them on first or check measurements if you can

 

Still, dope jackets and I would have long since had one if it wasn't for that

What's the story with the guy ironing the sleeves of his jacket?  Does it help distress the leather?

I assume so. Here's Mitt Romney on his new line of artisanal pre-distressed dinner jackets.

This jacket looks amazing:

Yeah, his custom denim getup in the vid is also cool (pair with linen shorts and Saint Laurent flipflops to go to a fancy Miami poolside party).

Pretty cool video.

I ordered the leather / nylon jacket from Mr. Porter last fall at 80% off. Jacket was super nice but even at largest size I couldn't get my arms into the sleeves. Usually I can barely fit into some japanese brands but felt Blackmeans made them exceptionally small.

Holy cow, Pintrill is opening a brick & mortar in Brooklyn.

How does a business like that generate enough sales to justify a brick & mortar?

overleveraged?

Pin cost $0.5
Retail price $12-15
Profit $11.5-14.5

I don't have to that a lot of times to make money.

you just added a shit ton of overhead just by having a physical retail space. no matter how large your margins are and how much profit you're making, it's kind of a questionable decision. operating an internet business is not the same as running a b&m and there's no point adding the risk imo.

People nowadays think they can build fashion houses and multi level brands on logo t-shirts. We all seen it before and we have all seen what happens next. Please turn the page for chapter 11.

I think 50 cent is high, it's probably more like 5 cents.

Feels like they've been producing that piece for years, the sasquatch collab was great too

 

blacked out

post #9704 of 13804
The blacked out looks ok. Reminds me of some undercover stuff I've seen. But I wouldn't be caught dead wearing that other stuff.

I don't think they have their own thread, but ordered from oi polloi for the first time and wow is their international shipping fast.
