    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.

    I think H&M is just disorganized. I went to Century City Mall on Sat morn and they were $300. Went to Hollywood one that night and they were $150.

    This needs to be said more often. The non-H&M version is neat as hell but it's also one of the ugliest things I've ever seen in my fucking life.

    people that think the H&M versions are ugly would complain about the OG ones too if they were sitting in the H&M store.
    Margiela's pieces weren't all "traditionally beautiful." that wasn't the intention. they were amazing because of their complexity and ingenuity. most of the effort/research that went into creating the OG pieces was simply transferred over to the repros. the H&M pieces are pretty accurate. sure the materials may not be as good but you aren't going to be able to tell that from a crappy iphone pic.

    just kidding. they are $149. I went to the Downtown Crossing store in Boston and a sales associate who knew what was up confirmed the price.

    at the cash register it was $309 or something, but I had that SA come and change the price manually for me.

    nice!

    I look forward to a deluge of complaints in a few weeks about them falling apart. (5).

    Actually impressed with the collection. Checked everything out today. The shoes are shit but the rest is above average significantly, I hated that camel coat Kanye wore until I saw it and tried it on and it was an instant cop.

    Just stopped by the Austin location and grabbed the black sidezips in a 43. The chick at the register only knocked off the first 50% though. I'll probably go back and try to get the other 50% off, if not I'll just return them.

    There were like 3 other ones left, like 40-41s and like a 45 I think. If I return these, there'll be a 43 also.

    Did you happen to see if there were any of those tan loafers left in a size 42 or 43?

    I just bought the dark navy 3 piece suit and I am pretty impressed. A suit designed by the House of MMM using 100% wool for under $300. The only thing I'm going to do is replaced the buttons for a heavier, natural one. For those that saw/got the suit, what were your thoughts on the quality?

    definitely worth the 300 for a 3 piece. I'm also very happy with the 100% wool weight, it's not an all season, as it's probably a bit thin for the harsh winter of some places, but a 3 season for sure, and you can definitely wear it all year around if you are on the west coast.
