    Are they available anywhere but mindtrive?


    Everybody says "gilet" and "blouson" etc for no reason now because designers have conditioned them with classy French words. I'm thinking mostly of the online environment, so it will still be a fresh lark when I finally hear an Amurrican say "jillit" to refer to his vest.

    18/BEE. That is definitely the style. The wine colorway from mindtrive is awesome. I recall the SP version being a dark grey/purple melange but its been a while. If it turns out close to mindtrive's version I will be extremely happy.

    I just went back to check the pics and the 18 BEE looks to be that wine melange version from mindtrive. Now I really can't wait for Schneider to fulfill that shipment.

    The Tallow trousers are looking good too. They appear to be the same style as this past spring's stone trousers which I own and have enjoyed.

    It is so odd that a full lookbook for SS14 has dropped yet only a few images from the upcoming FW13 season have appeared and I get the feeling that is all we are going to get. Hopefully not as it looks like there are some cool pieces in the collection.

    I still don't think its a match for Frozen Waves though. Wish there was less gimmicky pieces like candles and such too on the garments. Would much rather he have just used colors and imagery from candles as opposed to putting on an actual candle image for instance.

    I kinda wonder if something didn't go pear-shaped with the photo shoot and they just said fuck it.

    And while I agree with you re: some of the gimmickry (some of it I think actually looks kinda interesting), tonio, I think every collection is going to be a disappointment if people keep using Frozen Waves as a reference point. Don't get me wrong, it was an amazing collection and it haunts me that I missed out on most of it, but if you go back through Schneider's collections over the years it's fairly obvious that Frozen Waves was somewhat of an aberration in its modest color palettes and relative lack of design embellishments. If he ever does another similarly understated collection I'll be ecstatic, but I don't have any illusions of it being something that I should expect.

    e: And while Schneider's propensity to keep exploring new ideas does lead to some hit or miss results, it also keeps it interesting for me. The Paraffin jacket is one of my favorite pieces he's ever done, and I don't think it would exist if he stuck to a much narrower scope. Like, I really like Ervell, but I also feel like after a few seasons with him you're essentially reduced to asking yourself if a slight tweak to this jacket or that shirt is worth adding to what you already have. How many different pocket sweaters does a bro need, ya know?

    In the end, I sold a bunch of pieces from Frozen Waves because they did not get as much wear as I thought they might. It doesn't invalidate the collection in any way, but people shouldn't be so quick to dismiss the other seasons.

    Isn't that the same cardigan everyone's been slagging off for the last couple weeks?
