1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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 the painted jeans look kinda neat, but no idea about the fit and def wouldn't pay full retail.

    So... being a US resident that isn't within 200 miles of one of the stores that are carrying the collection, I can buy nothing. Neat?

    $300 in us for the sidezips ... feel more substantial then anything made from H&M but def not mmm quality. 300 is really high for what it really is

    camel coat did not look good in person but then again the only one left was a XXL. that was the one piece that sold out quickly only cuz kanye wore it

    Why would someone pay $300 for imitation stuff. Just spend the extra and get the real deal, if you can't then you shouldn't be wearing MMM stuff anyways.

    Spot on! Such an accurate (hilarious) description.

    There wasn´t mens collection at my nearest H&M but womens line materials surprised me positively. Leathers (especially some suede thing) really felt like leather. I have to try some pieces of the mens line as well.

    I have the full collection available near me. Almost every item in stock. Let me know if you want something and I will proxy for a fee.


    Because every one of the items in the H&M collection is a reproduction of an OG margiela piece that is essentially impossible to find now-a-days. And if you do find the OG piece, it will cost you way more than what it originally retailed for.

    I'm really disappointed in Maison Martin Margiela, there is just going to be a giant flood of this stuff...

    There already is on e-bay. Tough to find mainline stuff without wading through the H&M crap.

    someone asked for a comparison shot. i'm no expert but the H&M version seems decent to me, at £150 i might keep them as a rainy day beater.

    Indeed, those boots are only thing that didn't look bad to me. Not sure how long they will last and their leather soles might not be decent? If you like how they look and need affordable side zips, I don't see why not buy those. What is the biggest difference between h&m and real ones? Or do you see differences at all?

    Could you use some black shoe polish to darken them down a bit or am I being retarded?

    From what I saw, I don't think that's possible given the finish. Was kind of coated/painted on looking.

    Has anyone tried on the black side zip boots? Would like to know, if they run true to size?
