    No, its printed onto the insole. It merely looks fuzzy!

    Wouldn't a fuzzy insole be uncomfortable though?

    Can use as a fishing net if you're ever out in the water?

    @il_colonnello That's a great find. Whatever I picked up cost no where near that much for one thing. Now I am more intrigued what I purchased.

    I'll be a little bummed if it is really CdG. Hopefully I will be happily surprised.

    I've shopped a lot, first Yoox-roulette occurrence.

    Yoox made a mistake ^there. It's SS15 CdG Homme Plus, just found a runway shot of what you kopped:

    http://www.vogue.com/fashion-shows/spring-2015-menswear/comme-des-garcons/slideshow/collection#6

    The pattern/idea ran through the whole collection, like in this T-shirt also on Yoox:

    http://www.yoox.com/us/37781770JO/item#dept=men&sts=sr_men80&cod10=37781770JO&sizeId=

    I vaguely remember seeing a fit pic of sb wearing a piece from the collection on gr^iled; I believe it was a "knit" over a sweater. Looked great.

    Anyway, no need to be bummed. I think Rei Kawakubo > Christophe Lemaire. Probably Lemaire himself would agree, if we could ask him. :)

    I was so confused for a second picturing you confused wearing this with other Lemaire stuff. I like the piece though.

    "I'll be a little bummed if it is really CdG." Why?

    That was actually a piece Christophe designed for Rei. She called him up one morning and said, "hey man, I know this isn't usually your thing, but deep within you is a colonel's jacket made out of netting, waiting to spring into the world. Give it a try." And he said, "you know, Rei, you have a point." The record of the phone conversation is currently sitting in a vault at Elle Magazine.

    Nice. How many W+H hit tops are you at now? The collection is real haha. You have them in the Reed Suede colorway too right, thought I saw a fit with them you posted in WAYWT? Any chance you can link me to that? I have the Reed colorway in mind and have been looking for a style shot.
