I saw that one on Y!, looks so cool. Still sometimes regret not picking up that embroidered bomber.

I think it's fine to say Vetement's clothes are ugly, but to hang the argument on symmetry seems silly. I think you'd be hard pressed to find someone nowadays with strictly classical tastes in art, fashion, music, etc. If the guy pressed a little harder, he could probably find a place where that guy likes stuff that isn't classical.

The argument about hype and novelty were OK, but you could peg that on anything in fashion at the height of its popularity. There's no reason to hate Vetements in particular for it. Unless you just want to say you hate overhyped things in general.

I know I keep coming back to this, but this again just seems like two people with two different sets of values talking past each other. One guy has a very pragmatic sensibility when it comes to clothes. He just wants to look good at the office, on dates, on vacation, etc. The other guy is a little more interested in concepts and ideas. If ideas don't interest you, then a lot of this stuff is going to look stupid.

Not necessarily saying I like Vetements one way or the other, but to even have a discussion, two people have to agree on those terms. How do they see clothes and what do they value (practical use, concepts, artisanal merit, etc).

The fault line happened even before (during modern art) and didn't wait for contemporary art (what you call postmodern art). This is an old and tired debate. Everyone likes modern art now, even though the general public is suspicious of contemporary art, mainly seeing it as a fraud. Of course, as you point out, it doesn't expand to all aspects of someone's life but only to certain ones. I'm somewhat classical in my food taste. Hell I prefer macarons that don't mix weird bitter flavours or whatever.

I highly recommend the Squamish hoodie for a minimalist rain/wind shell. Packs into chest pocket the size of an orange. However, it lacks pocket/storage to keep it ultralight.

^^Squamish is nice but no pockets. The new Reigning Champ shells are nice. Zipped pockets, stash hood, and Polartec fabric. 

 

PM me if interested in the RC, I might have a plug

we've got both the squamish and the reigning champ bomber. the reigning champ piece is above and beyond aethstetically, but you pay more for the reigning champ piece. neither has taped seams (but most light rain jackets don't), the Squamish has a DWR coating which should be helpful, and the reigning champ piece mentions a "water resistant" nylon. I haven't had a chance to test it in the rain yet, but trying the thing on it feels great and looks cool as hell.

The Squamish hoodie is more of a "workhorse" jacket IMO. Cost effective, gets the job done, but its not particularly "stylish" - part of the reason we like it, really. Appeals to our guys who don't want to stand out too much.

Has anybody notices that member @lesamourai has some sort of graphic that appears over his post count, location, etc?

I wonder why that is.

They're not really about fashion brands, but ProLiteGear reviews performance clothes. Maybe they'll have something useful for you?

yeah, my gf also has a zara coat that has held up well, though the zipper snags on the coat's puffed-out material once a week when it's cold enough for her to be wearing it
