-Outerwear is absurd, fabric sourcing, cut, and detailing, all spot on. Geller outerwear is the second coming of Cloak.
It's hard to get excited about American designers lord knows I love BoO and Tim Hamilton, but I have to be honest about their being boring as hell. Geller is very fresh, reasonable, and the clothing (especially shirts and jackets) is very nicely cut. Maybe the best fitting shirts I've ever found.
Regarding the "geller is the new hot shit" comment, of course I'm pleased that he's becoming popular, and I hope that his collections will continue to be successful, but it was a nice feeling when I was the only person I knew who was into Geller.
