As everyone knows, Yoox is a great resource for all sorts of brands. The site sometimes carries truly rare stuff (Kiminori Morishita was represented there, for example), and you can get a very mature, elegant look (Castangia suit paired with Jil Sander Lace-ups, Barba shirt, Kiton tie), a very street look (W(Taps)+Against My Killer) to anything in between. Stock-in-trade brands like Margiela, Costume National, and Jil Sander are very well represented. Better represented than at any B&M store I've been in, in fact. I've never been in a store (maybe there is one in Japan, who knows) with hundreds of items of Costume National and Martin Margiela and Jil Sander in the States or in Europe. However, I was looking for jeans, and there was essentially nothing there of any real interest. There was once a small collection of Kohzo, but no more. We are left with tons of Diesel, The only things remotely of interest are a few pairs of Acne (and I don't even really like the brand,) a very small selection of the odder Helmut Lang and Jil Sander designs, a pair or two of Golden Goose jeans, a couple pairs of Jean Shop jeans at above U.S. retail, and a sinlge pair of Drkshdw jeans. In contrast, there are plenty of Euro-fabulous jeans from companies like JFour and Frankie Morello. While Yoox descriptions are typically useless in any case ("button closing" doesn't tell us anything we can't tell by looking at the picture, and you can't be less vague than "cloth",) the descriptiosn of jeans are especially so. "Denim Cotton" when the general category is "Denim" strikes me as particularly useless. I would be nice to see Yoox, and the high end retailers it sources from, in general, show more respect for denim. Although with jeans sales dropping, the time has maybe already passed. We have already discussed ad naseum how it is laughable that Borrelli charges $400 for some rather mediocre jeans with subpar cutting, ill-chosen stitching, and dull, lifeless denim. Guys in Louis Boston sell SPURR jeans at $50 above the typical markup, and they know nothing about them. $375 is a lot to be asking a customer to pay for something you can't answer basic questions about. I recently learned that the editor in charge of denim at a leading industry periodical doesn't have any real background in denim at all, which explains the poor coverage, and excuses magazines like Details when it prints that ringspinning is a method of weaving denim (see latest issue with "denim facts"). [/end rant] Please comment. You guys notice this? Buyers and retailers? Do you think that a denim oriented showroom does a better job with product education on denim than do other showrooms?
