    Correct, but wasn't Hedi Slimane CD at Dior Homme through S/S 2007?

    For those that would like to decode it:

    When dealing and trading Dior Homme, the reference code is often used to place the item within the season it was produced. Here we decipher a typical/standard code: 5EH1015678 E47 B6A8 (SS'05 blue glitter jeans).

    '5' refers to the year, that is, 2005.

    'EH' refers to the season, that is, Eté (Summer). HH refers to 'Hiver' (Winter).

    '101' refers to the item group, in this case, trousers (Pantalon). Other examples: 102 refers to blazers (Veste), 105 to shirts (Chemise) and so forth.

    The next 4 numbers '5678' should refer to the specific item, with jeans it will reveal the type of cut as the entire 16 digit reference code will only differ by the first 2 digits in this set of 4 numbers for the differing cut. As noted earlier, the # for this item is 5EH1015678 E47 B6A8, referring to the 21 cm cut. The # for the 19 cm variant is 5EH1011678 E47 B6A8.

    'E47',is the fabric code.

    The last 4, 'B6A8', is the colour code. In this particular case, 'B' refers to Bleu (blue), as in indigo blue, the main colour of the jean. 'A' refers to Argent (silver), the colour of the glitter. Another example would be B6N0 - the colour code for the SS'03 released classic blue distressed clawmark jeans painted over in matte black paint. The B6 again refers to the base colour bleu whilst the N0 refers to the black paint ('N' for Noir - black).

    Like this one you mean?

    We used to tell our salespeople a story when calculating bonuses ...

    One year a long time ago, everyone in the company was expecting to hit their numbers and get a significant bonus. But in 4th quarter there was a storm, us old timers remember, that flooded the Mississippi and everything around it. It closed the plant, shut down transportation, wrecked havoc, and they missed their numbers. When the time came, the salespeople expected the bonus anyways, since it was out of their control. And they asked the CEO about the bonus. He said, I don't care about the weather, there's always something not under our control. We have to deliver anyways; there aren't any excuses.

    The next year? Even with El Nino, Tornados, some hurricane or another, etc ... they made their numbers anyways. No excuses.

    Hmm so if one were using some kind of "keywords" to describe this suit, they could toss Hedi Slimane in there yeah? [​IMG]

    Were you able to fix the arm? Seemed pretty far gone to me and was afraid to bend the metal.

    Random assortment of things that I found this weekend!

    Anyone found Kith before or did I finally get a coveted #ThreadFirst?

    Here's my latest denim additions... I haven't tried either on yet, but both should fit.

    Ibex x Noble (just picked up today, but holy crap these are nice! First time finding anything by Noble. Retail price for this collab was $300...

    And then these. I found these on ebay listed as "Men’s New Gustin Jeans, Raw, Selvedge, Dk Blue, Classic Straight, Tag sz 35, Exc"...

    I sent a message to the seller asking for the model number and telling him where to find it... #226

    Gustin #226 Japan 18 (retailed for $155). These things are damn near bulletproof, and definitely new and unworn.

    Putting your arm around her for the pic, innocently as it was meant, may not have helped things.
