post #1441 of 2146

The PR Patterson collection at DSM is very, VERY austere. All pieces (some jackets and coats) are from the same black canvas fabric and are as minimal as can be (but you can see an unusual pattern construction - collar/shoulder/sleeves most notably). The fabric is stiff and doesn't drape much. Raw, uncompromising and expensive - mostly around the 200,000JPY mark for coats and jackets, and 80,000 JPY sweaters. I tried to take a few pics but it was pointless anyway, given the nature of the clothing. All in all it was very different from what i expected, but this collection (if i recall correctly, it was made for DSM) might not be representative of his work ?

Mormon-wear for the internets.

Speaking of belts, here is my favorite.

Simple buckle, full of m.a+ features yet not tacky as his silver-cross belt.

I have that belt, in white/Ivory.  It's really nice.  My only reservation about ALL MA+ belts is that belts are supposed to be functional, and silver is way too soft of a metal to be really practical for any functional belt.  After years of light wear, the buckle broke at the juncture between the bar and the frame.  This has never happened on a brass or a steel buckle, for me, and I have over 60 belts.

Is it possible to access the collection online? I've navigated the online NY E-shop but the brand isn't listed.

I would agree with you about silver, but I've had this Geoffrey Young belt for a few years now that is rock solid, and I wear it almost every day. A definite outlier. 

 

 

 

And 60 belts?! Damn! I don't have that many...anythings...

Robin Richman in Chicago has a few pieces. There is a great black blazer and pants combo that I've thought of getting but I think the shape may just not be for me.

It's similar to this one.

Not sure why they can list the women's stuff but not the men's. Anyway, great customer service and they have good sales, too. They carry Elena, just in case anyone was looking. Not a lot of stuff but I got a great deal on a simple black shirt back in the spring.

At no point did I ever think you were saying anything negative regarding the product. and even if you were, if it was something truthful I wouldn't mind.
I am not an egomaniac needing constant positive affirmation. if something is terrible, or off, i want to hear it, so long as the motives for doing so is with the intent to see the product improved.
I like what i make, but I am not the one wearing the product ( i pretty much wear variations of the same things everyday)

I'm getting flashbacks to an exchange where you seemed to take the opposite position!

Lot of years, more points of reference, more has happened, etc...  

 

The belt initially seems very solid, but after that happened, and also, a silver MA+bit broke on a bracelet, I am now less inclined to MA+ accessories and jewelry, as aesthetically pleasing as they are.  I just don't want to pay $600 or $800 for a belt that is going to break on me at some point.

For this FW16, there are three variations of the Soft J that will be avaiable

1. Overlocked soft j  JEANS in a 12 oz denim OD in grey and black.
2.  Overlocked soft j JEANS in Moleskin Cotton grey and black

3. Overlocked Soft J PANTS, that is a Combination of three different vintage linens that is very interesting.

I cannot say that that fabric/ combo will never be again, but the pattern was updated with some slight changes so even in using that fabric again that you have in the pic, the details will be somewhat different,

Just received this from Fascinate. Amazing bag, with just as amazing customer service. Definitely on the lookout for a Cornelian Taurus backpack now.
