I would love to have a pair of Momotaros...maybe even Iron Heart. I do admit that some models they've come out with are far out, but I think Brandon is just having fun
trying out new things or just b/c he can.
Those stainless steel jeans are pretty cool but totally impractical. I bought them for $200 on gilt (ugh). They run very small to size compared to other N&F (unfortunately I couldn't return them--really fun trying to stretch metal with your hips!!) and HURT. As in the back of my knees get cut up and bleed every time I wear them. So I basically never wear them.
I am also getting tired of N&F. I have 5 pairs but my next pair of jeans is going to be some Rogue Territory's which I expect to wear a lot.
Still really like my grey weird guys though.
I have all kinds of NF clothing, jeans, shirts, jackets, ect. No problems at all with quality. You should read the interview Brandon just had with Hypebeast, it touches on what you are talking about. NF has the core stuff and then the innovative stuff, like the stainless steel jeans that cost 400 dollars. The point is other companies sell jeans for 250 when NF sells them for 130. Everything is still raw, no ugly crap on the pockets, and someone was paid a fair wage to make it.
Ya I was thinking the same thing when I read the post. So many people trying to size down way to much, I think you nailed the problem here, 4 plus shirts all ripped at the seams, hummm, a certain SNL skit came to mind when I read that!
Not too big of a fan on the shirts but the NF staple jeans are pretty good imo like deep indigo, left hand twill etc. I think people are misunderstanding that their jeans like the reverse fade are their main selling point, but those are just extra built upon the solid foundation that they already have.
