The occasional sidebar about democratization of luxury branding or fashion in general is a reasonably valid topic to discuss in most fashion threads.

Gang-whining about being off topic is actually far more annoying than off-topic banter, and off-topic itself.

One post requesting to get back on topic is hardly gang-whining.

Talking about luxury branding is a valid topic. So start a new thread to discuss it.

I think in its purest form, when someone buys a luxury item like a LV monogram canvas bag, the reason they buy it is because of the pleasure that they get owning a beautifully designed bag made of good materials that will last a long time and will get a lot of use.

The monogram canvas material itself is pure luxury because its lightweight, sturdy, and very durable. The same with the Prada nylon materials, when crafted into bags, they are super functional. The logos and branding is the least important, it's just a way of putting a stamp of approval that you are owning a great product. And that's the real reason why people buy them.

This is it. This is the most bullshit post on all of styleforum.

I think he's being sarcastic?

I hope so because I love colabear posts.

 

This Japanese site compares the two different lamb leathers that Rick put out last season.

http://www.deepinsideinc.com/blog_byintention/?p=15645


#1 is "rugged" (LR) lamb which features distressing.

#2 is "glass ice" (LGI) which features more of a sheen to it.

 

The glass ice model gets a lot of flak online. I think it looks good in those pictures though. 


What do you guys think?

 

I think @artishard116  has one of these more recent Intarsia leathers?

Haven't seen LR before, pictures make it look a bit thicker so I hope it's nice. Handled made in Moldova LGI. Was unimpressed b/c it seemed too thin, but maybe I just didn't like the price tag :embar:. Someone with more experience should chime in

Some of those LGI's have been dipping into the $1000 usd territory. Still not sure if its worth that though.

They are except for a couple pairs that are made in France. I used to be addicted to sunglasses and had quite a few pairs before I realized I only wear 1-2. I have two pairs of LV glasses, both of which I liked the style, they fit of and I haven't seen any where else. I have been focussing on other purchases, like more leather jackets (staying on topic) but my next pair of sunglasses will be Mykita. Been eyeing those for awhile, no pun intended.

I have a question for you guys:

What makes jacket leather 'good' quality?

Is it the thickness? The texture? The treatment? The hand feel? Is a leather good quality if it has that rubbery, meaty feel to it? Is it bad if it has that dry, smooth feel?

 

There are some designers that treat their lambskin so heavily that it ends up feeling almost like pleather in terms of hand feel, to the point to where it doesn't have that feeling of wet, fleshy silk when held loosely. At the same time there are entry-level brands like Schott who put out a naked cowhide leather that feels very substantial in that rubbery type of way that just feels like 'good quality' to hold.

 

I just feel like there are elements I'm not quite getting here in terms of gauging quality. 

post #10124 of 16656

I think someone said this before.

 

Styleforum logic:

Great quality = if you like it.

Bad quality = if you don't like it.
