    Those marants are almost the only item of clothing that Missthese has looked at and declared "I want those."

    I got the gf to try them on at Barney's and she liked them until she found out how much they cost. Then she said "I'd rather just get some Louboutin heels instead." (0).

    I had the weirdest dream last night where I hung out with c4est and got to try on some of his recent purchases (like the fringe shirt) and then we went and macked on some chicks.

    Probably a sign I spend too much time here

    Update: the fabric, fit, and construction is the best I've seen. Definitely like Devoa taken fo the next level. All the colors had a unique and amazing fabric

    $2000 price point on jackets and $500 for jeans and shirts - quite rough

    Capitol Hill is the place to be. Von Trapps' is very popular on the weekend, but expect long, long, long lines. Another great area is Belltown, lots of different theme bars for whatever you're in to (sushi, whiskey, drunken literature, etc). If you want to grab a bite there's about 5 sandwich shops on Capitol Hill. We're also really into the pho, so Vietnamese restaurants are everywhere as well.

    The touristy things to do are pretty obvious, Pike Place Market, Space Needle, James Tower in downtown. People also really like to visit "The Troll" which is a sculpture underneath an overpass in Fremont. There's actually a street named after him (Troll Ave.).

    That's crazy. I didn't think Devoa could be taken to another level. The tech details were pretty impressive from the SZ magazine article and fabrics did seem pretty impressive from the small pics... but Devoa's designer is a former olympic athlete so I assumed it'd be stronger in the anatomic/athletic movement aspect (Re: The Devoa video with the guy doing yoga in it).

    Strong endorsement though.

    Devoa taken to the next level? I don't believe it. I can't believe it.

    Is that a bit of hyberbole on the first sentence? THE best fabric, fit and construction?

    It's all hyperbole based on 10 minutes of handling the jackets but they are pretty nice

    Want to touch them, but the only stockist is Tokyo.

    Also, I am now considering opening a noodle bar called HyperBowl. Or at least cooking up some noodles.

    Just read what I typed, meant "some of the best," not "THE best." Not as anatomically cut as Devoa pieces, but definitely a pattern that takes movement into consideration. I really like the idea of Devoa, but their garments are hard to work into my wardrobe - a lot of them are just "too" Devoa, e.g. super slim sleeves, too much stacking on the pants, the washi fabrics that look better than they feel or wear, etc. The jacket was in three incredible fabrics, had a fitted but not slim silhouette, and will work with a lot of different looks. I'm not paying $2000 for a jacket, but at half of that I'd have to think hard.

    Does Raf still release the velcro hi's in something similar to these?
    If so, about how much are they going for?

    [​IMG]

    Never really bothered with them but these look fantastic to me. Probably just the simple colorway and suede.

    Suggestions for a nice sturdy umbrella in the 100-150$ range? Both clasic full-length and collapsible ones could work, just so tired of my brightblue 5$ one (not to mention it looks ridiculous with everything I wear :laugh: )
