    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    @bows1 ,


    its hard for me to recommend something like the minimalist slim pants, it is a pants for which we never produced a variant. the only other Non jeans pant that would be similar would be the Tri Continental Soft J pants......but we only have 52.
    Size 48 and 50 are gone

    @Zamb thanks for the info. I'll just have to wait for the next release I suppose!

    @Zamb Anything similar to the asymmetric fly cropped pants (brushed cotton?) in the upcoming season? The pair I bought is in heavy rotation but it's too thick for warmer seasons.

    Fair enough, just the thing I've heard most often. And having Kramer-ed my way into a pair of Z-1s, I can attest that there are other quite slim Zam pants.

    just got a coat from zam , specially tailored for me - it is like a piece of art !

    its a massive thing and weighs a ton , high neck with a resin coating and about knee length - its from a few seasons ago i think ?

    the thing for me is the tailoring - absolutely nails the shape of the body for us European guys which ive found a problem with japanese brands in the past

    also beautiful buttons !

    will post some fit pics soon but just want to say i think zam is very underrated in our circle of reference - would much rather buy from him than buy a PH , LUC or A1923 blazer for 2500 euros that doesn't fit well...

    my coat was way less than that :)

    Man at 6`3 and size 45 shoe I have the same problem. I'm a size 50-52 in most coats so maybe look for outerwear

    looks pretty awesome here too tbh.

    when you say it was custom / from a couple of seasons ago, does that mean Zam made a new one to spec from the old season's design?

    no , he had this in his workshop and altered it from a size 48 (tag) to fit a 52 chest size (44 inch )

    its slightly tight in the torso after christmas but come spring its gonna fit like a glove ....

    this all came about when i had a conversation with zam telling him i really needed a big winter coat - and asking him what he had ... was going to blow the budget and buy the size 54 ccp fencing jacket that was on stylezightgist (sic) which was lovely but not practical really ...

    zam convinced me otherwise and said he had he would make something i would like - i only saw one photo of of the coat and was hooked !

    Yeah, it's back the way Lang, Margiela, and Ann are still going concerns.

    I know Continues was always a collective, but the limited PR vaguely insinuates that 'the members of that time' are involved with this reboot. That's after name dropping Altieri in the opening lines.

    He's said, and it's been on this board and other places, that if he wanted to make quick cash he'd just start churning out leather shirts again. Instead he's chasing his own 'what next' by making expensive, conceptually overwrought shoes and Eastern/Western-influenced one-cut pants (full disclosure: I love that shit).

    Looks like somebody else is doing the cynical cash grab, and, this time, 1 plus 1 really just equals 2.

    I wonder who is behind this (besides the guy who seems responsible for the PR) as in actual artisans: most of those who were involved back then have their own brands.
    If that would be another speculation Simone-like, that would be an honest shame even more than it already is.
