    No, it gives important indications but isn't all encompassing. For example made in Belgium usually trumps made in Romania or Portugal and Raf Simons moved a lot of his production there which is why I appreciate how most (all??) Stephan Schneider is still made in Belgium.

    I saw some made in Japan Stephan Schneider pieces on yahoo auctions actually.

    That is partly true, but I have a sage patternmaker/factory coordinator who works at a non-profit textiles research institute... I took an old made in Belgium Raf coat to him and asked him what he though of the construction, materials, overall quality, and here is what he said: 'this costs $20-$50 to make, materials and labor'

    Decided to stick with iconic fit > denim features.

    APC New Standard
    APC New Cure

    Bball highs in white or silver??


    NCs? Have you tried them on man? I don't know if they're going to work for you. You aren't one of those rakes I see in the Valley, and really they're the only people they look good on. NS will definitely go well though.

    Definitely go white on the CPs. Iconic, not flashy.

    Stephan Schneider T-shaped sweater:


    Very nice, Fuuma!

    Yo mang Would not wear them now, but measurements are the same pre stretch towards some jawnz I had when I was not fat, so will be alright. White it is. Waiting for the sale, I'll be picking up a few pair.

    Albam workwear jacket, bought during sale. Shipping was fast to get to Canada, however I just received it yesterday as my package spent 5 business days in customs.

    The duffle is a 1970s french replica piece in leather.

    The hand knit is a navy high collar with chunky pattern of my robe.
