    Anybody know when this is dropping? They already released the Steven Alan collab collection a few weeks ago.

    So it seems like no one is willing to pay retail. Never had any experience with this brand. Can someone comment on the value of their pieces?

    Price has steadily gone up every year and theyve had a new head designer recently. Imo, last good year was FW 2010.

    Some of their stuff is nice every year, but because it seems like they do more production now, you'll almost always find it on sale later.

    Seems boring as hell to me. When I browse sites that carry 100 brands, W&H used to be the first brand I'd look for. Now I just skip over them.

    It's definitely sad to see the direction the brand has taken. The fact that they charge almost $100 for an Ebbets snapback (like seriously, they couldn't spring for the leather strapback model?) speaks volumes about their pricing.

    FW13 has some interesting pieces but I can do a lot better with my money.

    It's getting way overpriced.

    Even on sale sometimes I don't bother.


    The old designer went to the Hudson Bay Company.

    I think there are some things they do really well - the hi-top sneakers, raw denim, large-loop hoodies, and chinos - and the higher production volumes and wider distribution make stuff easier to find on sale. Retail prices are getting pretty ridiculous with no noticeable increase in quality, though, and I'd probably hold out for markdowns in the 50% range before pulling the trigger on most things.

    I'm not entirely sure who the Hudson Bay Company is, but it sounds like it's either a bunch of colonial fur trappers or a brand you'd find at JC Penney.

    ha, you're not far off. HBC is the oldest corporation in North America, now mostly known for their mediocre Canadian department stores. had no idea they snagged Brian Mendoza.

    ^ Seriously

    At least HBC's The Bay is trying to reinvent themselves, their downtown showroom/buys are ok.

    As long as the Bay continues to have crazy sales on Ralph Lauren, they're OK in my books.

    Yeah I absolutely love all this (very much my kind of fits) with the exception of the footwear. It's too heavy looking.

    I especially like the puffer jacket and dark heather grey cargos.

    I thought after Mendoza left, there was another guy and someone recently took over? (I could be completely wrong about that)
