    Would kill for the color changing jackets cheap

    Just got marked down at Forward today. They have a running 15 percent off code and free shipping, so not a bad deal.

    Did they have the tees from this S/S? If so, do you remember how much they were?

    The high pockets are the only drawback for me. Otherwise, it's a dandy conversation piece as Stazy pointed out.

    I was in NYC a couple of weeks ago and went past Atelier not knowing much about the joint other than that I'd heard it mentioned...

    I've got to say, I was taken aback but also found a deep new respect for and appreciation for 'fashion'. The stuff was beautiful, in a strange sort of way. It's like architecture for the body. I've got new respect for guys like Synethese and Snake and others who rock this stuff IRL. Of course I found it all too expensive, but the fabrics, cuts, sheer creativity really impressed me.

    and then I walked in looking like a jcrew catalogue and saw the people working there, which was something interesting as well. See, just out on the street, I'd probably roll my eyes and go 'only in NY', but within the context, the store, the guys all looked perfectly at home. It's like they were part of a whole different world and I was the outsider there.


    just an interesting experience.

    indeed atelier is a nice place to explore. i see you're in toronto, should hit up sydney's, a similar experience though he carries less directional pieces because nobody there would buy...but he's a nice guy and is getting into interesting projects too

    OTOH, I've been Lol'ng at this new post by Hermes Man

    so recently i just bought a giorgio armani t-shirt for around 400$usd (i actually paid full retail without discount for the first time on GA items..)

    anyway here is the t-shirt

    [​IMG]

    i feel insecure if there is no hint of what brand of tshirt i am wearing, many other brands they sometimes give discreet and subtle hint of the brand however for Giorgio Armani there is not a single hint telling others what brand it is.. so i felt compelled to leave the logo hanging outside in order to let others aware of my t-shirts brand..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    so do you think it would look weird if I purposely leave the label hanging outside like this

    yah, mainly fw...looking at my "plan" from the current julius collection. Might buy a coat and some knits. Apparently a new color "gold" for the denim, lol however, I have been "changin" mainly going back to black, but actually going way more drapey for once. if my antonioli order gets solved I will have even more drapey shit too [​IMG] summers been hard to be interesting, but for the non-excruciating hot days I go with a drape cardigan and a tank.

    Carrying a flask seems a little fratty, the sort of thing you do when you're underage or old enough not to give a shit, but if I were going to own one I'd prob spring for this one, which looks like it would be tactilely pleasing.

    I thought about this one too to store my rum.

    Hermes man is awesome.

    Thanks for the link, the 6 oz. looks interesting. I'm not that old but wouldn't mind being able to have some whiskey, or something, with me when convenient.
