    @bigjus thanks for the heads up. That sounds absolutely awful.

    yeah i know ... got a free pair of the black ones as a replacement for the grey ones - would be truly pissed otherwise !

    cant fault the seller ( pretty sure you can guess where i got them but i wont name him ) , he was really great about it , always a pleasure to deal with him .

    Good to hear you got a free replacement. Is the black pair better constructed than the grey one?

    Well, I don't know much about suiting so this is kind of my starting place. But the connection with the designer and the backstory of all the pieces (let alone his 20+ years in the biz) are enough to keep my buying.

    Hotoveli just put up their drop, BTW

    And they're already sold out of most of the small sizes... I guess there's demand for GBS stuff where the merchant has the ability to put it online.

    GBS has a very dedicated group of collectors as well due to the very limited releases of his work, i.e. 3 pairs of these particular pants etc.

    Oh yeah appreciated. I just mean i feel like in the past I could walk into Hotoveli a couple months after a shipment and they still have a bunch of stuff around. That said, this release they seemed to have made a much bigger deal of. Maybe it's becoming more popular.

    He's definitely gaining more traction, but also the online showing is a huge boost to that, without it, it's likely they'd still be there in store for a bit longer, but you probably already know his work never sits for that long :)

    All the hoods in the pictures make me feel like I'm looking at hangings.

    Yes, definitely a gothic romance to his work, I love it personally.
