    Talking about whether or not things should change given hypothetical unknowns in an unknown hypothetical situation seems strange ...

    Unknown unknowns are the most dangerous of the unknowns.

    How do you know given the number of unknowns and unknown unknowns that may or may not change your opinion?

    That's a known unknown.

    Unknowns exist, but that's part of risk management type analysis, which is again under knowledge. Do due diligence, take action.

    Anyway, it's all vague and hypothetical without an application.

    There is so much good stuff in that spell post I don't even know where to start. Really tempted to call that number.

    Ha beaten to it. Was just going to post how many of those spells seem ideally tailored to Miran's needs

    Pretty sure that's actually a mission statement from an obscure but up-and-coming designer

    Can't believe I'm typing this, but does anyone know where I can find a decent sleeveless hoodie?

    I've handled both and didn't feel ma+ biker jacket or any ccp jacket would fall apart on me. But i have seen a few pieces that look like they hang by threads from ma+, particularly that lining he uses on the jackets.


    Lets continue the AMA, whats your favorite cereal? :p ... but seriously

    Between cd/ma+/ccp/layer-0/etc/other artesianal designers whom did you like in terms of construction? It seems like you liked ma+ in terms of style...

    Favorite cereal is my wife's granola, which I eat with Greek yoghurt and honey. It rocks pretty hard, and is good post workout.

    None of the "artisanal" designers have ever really impressed with construction, but yeah, MA+ sometimes seems the most perfunctory. In many of the garments and leather pieces, the things are held together by a loop stitch, and not even one that is particularly well tied off. A lot of the construction, like that of MA+ and Boris, is extremely interesting, but it's not as though any of the stuff is well made the way a tailored garment from even the lowest end tailoring outfits is well made.

    You ever watch how poorly some of the designers do tailored menswear on Project Runway? It's incredibly precise and difficult. I've never seen that type of virtuosity from the artisanal designers, and it's really an unfair comparison. It's like asking which rock band plays their instruments as well as top flight classical musician, and the answer is "few to none". But Bob Dylan is not less of a musician because he sings like someone just punched him in the throat and because his ability to play any of his instruments is rudimentary.

    What about for labels like Cloak and Helmut Lang? Were they still more artisanal than technical?
