1. What brands or products would you love to see Massdrop collaborate with? I'd love to get some thoughts on things that you'd love to see on the site - popular products that everyone loves, things that are hard to get or a bit too pricey, or made-to-order runs of something you've dreamt up.

 

2. Or, another way to think about it: what are some products that you think are good, but just need a little tweak to be perfect? Often, when we have enough interest in a product, it allows us to make changes to cater to what the community wants. Or perhaps it's a product that used to be available in past seasons but is no longer around? Massdrop has leveraged its communities to help bring things back into existence, so just thought I'd start that conversation as well. 

 

3. I threw some Superga 2750s up on the site this afternoon. I don't know if the folks in MC are into these, but they've been my go-to sneaker for a while. Just a heads up. 

 

Just generally, I think that Massdrop is doing a good job and producing some awesome items at reasonable prices. I've been a part of 5 drops. 

 

1) 

 

Kent Wang -- You already have coordinated a few drops with this style forum favorite: umbrellas and watches I think. It would be awesome to see a drop for KW's white sneakers or a variety of pocket squares. Perhaps some trousers? It looks like Massdrop has yet to venture into shirts or pants much.

 

Meermin -- These Spanish shoes are something a lot of people want to try, but it's a bit of a convoluted buying process, especially with the high shipping costs. I would love to see some of Meermin's oxfords in a drop.

 

Carmina -- Similar to the above proposition. 

 

Shoe care -- I'm really happy with my Woodlore shoe trees, and I want more! I also wish I had taken part in the last saphir drop. More of these would be much appreciated.

 

Res Ipsa USA -- This drop would have been successful, I think, if there were more and/or different options. I personally would love a pair of the brown melange tweed loafers. Or the barleycorn loafers.

 

Ring Jacket -- This Japanese brand is pretty price and difficult to buy. But I think it would be a game-changer if you could coordinate a good discount on some classic sport coats.

 

Tissot -- I think there is a huge demand for a drop of the Le Locle. Or similar Hamilton watches. 

 

Panta trousers -- They're nice but pricey! Perhaps a drop would be helpful. Maybe Howard Yount trousers or knitwear as well. 

 

 

2) 

 

Split-toe shoes -- Both Meermin and Carmina have produced split toe oxfords and loafers I believe. It would be awesome to see a drop for items like this in normal colors like medium/dark brown. 

 

Herringbone ties -- Grey and/or brown herringbone ties from any quality maker would be popular I think.

 

Chelsea boots -- Epaulet did a nice GMTO for these. Something like that at a discount could be popular.

+1 for Kent Wang (I'd also add ties), Meermin, and Ring Jacket.

 

I'd also love to see the following:

 

-Vanda ties and pocket squares

-Drake's (maybe a special Massdrop run of ties?)

-Autodromo watches

-Henry Carter ties

-Suitsupply suits and sport coats

-Hamilton Khaki watches

-some nice menswear-ish books

-Epaulet (shirts or shoes)

-Yellow Hook Neckties

-Quoddy footwear

A decent casual beefroll penny loafer (Rancourt, Quoddy, OSB, etc.)

A decent white/cream buck. Would love a buck in Allen Edmonds price range, ~$250-350. This does not seem to exist right now. You have Bass at sub-$100 then Alden at $525.

Travel shaving kit (safety razor, travel brush, case), though I'd be happy with just a reasonably priced travel brush with a good synthetic knot like the Fine brushes.

Decent quality wool OTC socks. Prefer staples (pindots, herringbone, clocks, vert stripes, etc.) to #menswear "fun socks." Bresciani, Pantherella, etc.''

Gant Rugger or similar madras shirts.

A wool vest like Sid Mashburn's: not puffy as hell, horn buttons, decent construction, $300-$350.

Ring Jacket

Alden

Quoddy

Rancourt

Oak Street 

Meermin

Carmina

Filson

Barbour

 

I like the Madras shirts someone mentioned previously.  Some nice flannels with Woolrich would be cool too.

post #98 of 271
Would be all over carmina and ring jacket. I'd also love to see a quoddy or oak st loafer with a camp sole.
post #99 of 271
+1 for Panta shirts or trousers.
post #100 of 271
Would like to see you guys collaborate with the following:

Vass (again, allow widths)
Carmina (belts and shoes)
Enzo Bonafe
Equus Leather
More J FitzPatrick, other designs and increased price to include shoe trees
Bose for headphones
Some nice dress socks
Button down shirts? Not sure who from.

Will continue to add as I think.

Kamakura? (I would jump on a 4 for $200 deal on Kamakura shirts. Or, more realistically, 3 for $180.)

Yes!

post #103 of 271
I'm interested in dress socks too.
And Cappelli ties. I like Panta ties too but the cotton-silk does not appeal to me at all.
post #104 of 271
Vanda and ring jacket would be awesome. Love my Panta tie from the first drop but the second don't appeal to me that much unfortunately.
post #105 of 271
I like where this thread is going.
Kent wang squares and ties and shoes
Panta trousers
Meermin Vass Alden and carmina shoes
Vanda ties (we need stripes up in here)
RING JACKET
Pantherella
An attaché, shave kit or small travel bag or something
Filson
Hamilton watches

DRAKES especially their wool silk squares and non silk rolled ties.


If you want mho, your goal here is to either: ease logistics of complicated sales (a la meermin, ring jacket, custom orders or limited/ expired runs) IR -- and this is the BIG BIG BIG draw for me, bring pricing on new items down close to the secondary market (so long as the vendor -- whom of course we want to see succeed and make more stuff -- can thrive on that). Budget constraints price me out much above that, and possibly even if. But that's your best chance of the vendor expanding market share to the cheap bastards like me out there who I assume are your target demographic.
