AF1 restocked in some sizes... I keep missing my size. Sold out as soon as I get the notifications. Dumb.

Lol so much hate for the Mariposa Capsule. I've been meaning to cop the black LS at Mr Porter. I think the blues and greens of the butterflies is really cool and ghostly. Also, big fan of ALD. I dig the polo/prep/collegiate vibes. But I never buy any ALD. Big difference in what brands are fun to follow vs what i want to wear.Screen Shot 2019-08-22 at 3.18.58 PM.pngScreen Shot 2019-08-22 at 3.22.09 PM.png

Outside of hoodies and sweats, an ALD vs JE debate is useless since the style is pretty different. I do think ALD did a really nice job on styling the pieces in their lookbook, and creating a vibe that if you choose to follow their guidelines has a certain look. JE used to excel at layering and mixing pieces that made you wanna cop 3-4 things from an entire fit. That said, I'm an ALD fan and love JE as well. No need to pick one over the other.

this is great post. the thing i like about ALD is how it's so uniform that it creates an aesthetic that you dont see in streetwear now... but yeah i was trying to compare the brands, I just havent really liked anything JE dropped recently so i dont wear shorts that everyone here copped

No need to hate on Aime just because they have a few questionable pieces. Let’s not act like JE doesn’t have some weird stuff either. Both are cool brands where you can combine them for interesting fits.

While My closet heavily favors JE, I really like ALD as well. While Aimé can get pretty loud with their branding, they always have solid pieces each season that are unbranded or subtly branded.

... and let me put this out there to see if anyone else agrees: Aimé does a cropped pant very well. I feel like JE could improve in this area.

both brands suck, but JE has decent denim since SLP d-02s are overpriced second hand. JE hasn't had a good collection since runnin through vietnam.

What brands don't suck in your opinion? Curious to hear and learn about other brands out there.
