PR Patterson updates: anyone got anything? seen anything? Liberte in Japan stocks them, but sells out instantly

Yet to handle the stuff in person but I'm very intrigued.

edit: and Invoice in Fukuoka

Also, here's the designer's instagram (I think?) for all you real stalkers

Wow, thanks, @nicelynice. Beautiful looking stuff! The fabrics look amazing, and those boots are great, definitely a bit different.

@Nicelynice I almost pulled the trigger on a beautiful PRP blazer from Robin Richman in Chicago. T was the two button with the bright green oxidized clasps/tie bars. They don't have a lot (mainly blazer and matching drop crotch trousers) but it's a start and my SA, Steven, was extremely nice and helpful.

Ended up opting for the GBS blazer from Eth0s (which I'm thrilled with) but did score a beautiful Elena black shirt and even qualified for their 25% off sale they just had.

Worth writing them if anybody here is curious. They seem like a great store and I'm happy to support them.

^I will have to visit them again when I'm not lazy. I doubt they have small sizes though. I recall they have limited stock and bigger sizes, but they just started buying menswear so hopefully it gets better. Their womenswear buys are pretty impressive.

I know the film is old news at this point but I stumbled across this article about the costume design for Noah. There are some pretty fantastic textile studies in there. http://tyrannyofstyle.com/matt-reitsma-textile-artist-noah

 

for example cotton/acrylic boucle and silk habutae

Ha if I hadn't gotten a (different) Forme blazer literally yesterday I'd be interested :/ (They serve different needs---mine is all linen, different cut---but budgetary discipline, y'know)

Thought this thread is relevant from reddit What differentiates different 'gothy' clothing brands? https://www.reddit.com/r/malefashion/comments/3xcuj5/what_differentiates_different_gothy_clothing/?

It was a good discussion with some interesting thoughts about the brands/aesthetic. I really didnt know Altiery was screwed by Guidi like that, not sure if thats an internet rumor or what but seems plausible to me.

That thread doesn't have anything about Guidi as far as I can see. Do you mean the moment when they started their own footwear line inspired by those who sourced from their tannery business undercutting them?

There is its in the comments if you go down. Member coolron corrects some of the stuff too. And yes i am referring to when they started their own footwear.

He probably removed it from his post since there isn't a single guidi mention on that page.

Anyway he is 100% influenced by Geoffrey's post long ago on SZ when he said the same.

dude my bad the comment is in this thread questions about: Guidi, A1923, Greg Lauren, CCP, and their aesthetics. https://www.reddit.com/r/malefashion/comments/20d9hq/questions_about_guidi_a1923_greg_lauren_ccp_and/?

the other thread i just thought was interesting as well.

Ah, I see, it's just you've posted only one link in the first place. 

It seems I was correct, but this guy definitely overexaggerates things (and Geoffrey was quite harsh himself). I wasn't interested in this market back then (and I was too young anyway) so my opinion doesn't matter much but it hasn't lead to Carpe's downfall for sure since there were no Carpe's downfall. It was just shut down and definitely not because of the lack of demand from customers.

The issue of Guidi making similar designs is indeed real (however their lasts are original for sure and we've seen MUCH worse examples of almost-blatant copying, mostly by a1923), and the issue of selling their salesman to the same boutiques which were selling Carpe is real indeed. It's shrewd but it's, well, business. This is why Guidi were called businessmen, not artisans. 

Let me find the original post: http://stylezeitgeist.com/forums/showpost.php?p=30408&postcount=30 

And if I can name any person who stands for its word about what happened back then it would be Geoffrey indeed.
