(hermes @ Jan. 20 2005,09:01) i agree with LAguy and brianSD about jil sander's fit and quality jil sander does not have any bridge line, just the one jil sander line and all her suits are tailor made having just come from the prada industrie corporate outlet with jil sander products, the price isn't bad on yoox given the least expensive jil sander suit in the store was E475, which is about US$650; the ebay price on the other suit is therefore a steal
You are right hermes. I could have sworn that there are suits which are not "tailor made." Perhaps I am thinking of older pieces. I wonder if they sell JS / HL at the Prada outlet in Palm Desert.. I will have to give it a look.
To an ear in the frozen midwest, is really unfair and painful to hear about the existence of a Prada outlet. You lucky, lucky, lucky...

Why would a Prada outlet have Helmut Lang? Was there some kind of acquisition? Dan

A few years ago, during headier years, the Prada group purchased both Jil Sander and Helmut Lang. A large number of the major (mainly European) designers are in fact owned by own of 2 french conglomerates or the Prada group. In fact, with the acquisition of the Gucci group, I think that the PPR group owns pretty much everything LVMH doesn't.

LA Guy is correct PPR and LVMH pretty well hate each other and pretty well went into a competition to buy up everything they could to remain competing conglomerates there are few stand alones such as Chanel which is family owned and Hermes which is also family owned but does own a few other luxury labels as well, mostly watches etc but did recently buy 50% of gaultier even most of the watch companies are owned by a few conglomerates, such as richmont (sic) with really only a handful of independants left, such a patek and rolex as for the main prada industrie corporate outlet near arrezzo outside of florence, it's undergone a nice transformation since my last visit and in addition to all the prada and miu miu and prada sport including a lot of ski wear at the moment, a very impressive selection of lang denim (jeans and jackets) and lang dress shirts and casual wear (they had no lang suits) and sander suits, shirts, dress pants ..... plus shoes by prada, miu miu, sander, lang and church's and if anyone was wondering if anyone ever bought any of that bondage strap lang wear from a few seasons ago, the answer is few if any people as the outlet had a boatload of all the strapwear stuff ........ and for johnapril, there are about a dozen prada space outlets around the world, and i believe there are two in the usa, one in california and the second in new york

Yes, the outlet I am referring to is a "Space outlet" and is advertised as carrying both Prada and Miu Miu. Even outlet prices need to be on sale for me to really afford it though.
