    +1 on fucking Robert Geller oh my god yes I dunno how that could happen though.
    More acne jeans

    I'd love to see some footwear that fit into the normal DB price range as well. YMC, Gram, Filippa K, or something of that nature we could snag with the discount.

    +1 on Nom de Guerre denim, they have some great stuff. I'd be down for Geller and Julian Red as well.

    +1 I agree. +1 on margiela, although it would be kinda random. Boo seems good... I'd love to use the db discount on boo.

    Yeah, MMM isn't really a fit for the store, IMO. Wouldn't mind the discount though.

    I wouldn't mind seeing some stuff from Flippa K (shoes included).

    I would love to see Margiela and his ilk. Bring the store up to the next level.

    (Though I'd never be able to afford it)

    Unis would be great....not sure how it'd do for Mauro since that brand goes under the radar, sadly.

    I'd love to see Fred Perry but I just want another option for a discount so my reasons are purely selfish.

    +1 on bringing engineered garments to DC (moreso than the co-ops do).

    If I were Mauro, I'd be concerned about Margiela not selling. Not sure how well it does at Bloomingdales in DC. Maybe through the Web, as there aren't a lot of Web stockists for that kind of stuff.

    Footwear would be interesting. He might have to bring in Mark Nason to pay the bills! [​IMG]

    Margiela may not sell well, but stocking an avant-garde, slightly outre brand like that would add to the cache and prestige of the store.

    It's a loss leader of sorts. Margiela itself doesn't sell but it does add to the denim bar mystique, attracting people who will spend money on the other brands.

    to be honest for BoO you should only really stock the shirts and ties, it seems the rest of the pieces are out of alot of people's ranges

    agree. maybe some of the jackets....basically gear under $500 would move well, esp with the 20% SF discount and free shipping and no sales tax for those of us outside of DC

    Even so, it sounds like a waste of time. I think they should be thinking more Barney's Co-op and less Barney's NY.

    Lots of good selections here. I would second YMC and strongly second Paul Smith for jeans and perhaps shoes. I would also add Gilded Age to the list.
