    I've purchased a couple AllSaints pieces and I think they make decent stuff. Not on par with S.W.O.R.D. or higher quality stuff obviously, but for $400-500 I feel they are fairly priced.

    Does SWORD make quality jackets? I rarely see them mentioned here but some of their leathers look decent from pics but always been sketchy on quality.

    What a cock

    Some guy stepped on my margiela sneaks at this dirty hipster bar and I exploded at him


    you go to a "dirty hipster bar" and then are surprised someone steps on your shoes? you probably looked crazy when you yelled at him.

    a) why would you wear shoes you really care about to a dirty hipster bar
    b) unless your MMMs are white and suede, who cares
    c) MMM gat's are comfy sneakers, not something you wear on a red carpet. so again, who cares really
    d) its not a reasonable expectation to go to a bar and expect people to politely tip toe around.

    ToJ makes minimal, classic pieces. All Saints makes dramatic pieces inspired by industrial and hardcore a la Julius or Rick Owens. Not the same thing at all

    They're definitely from different schools of thought, but it's not like AllSaints is doing experimental structural shit, they're putting things on basic leather jackets and then distressing them to fit the feel better. If the patterning or the material quality is off, it doesn't matter how cool and hardcore your design is; for me at least, more esoteric pieces need to be better-made so that they don't look like costumes.

    They're going for different things, but they're still fitted blouson-length leather outerwear pieces. Some measures of value still apply.

    Normally you're just clueless but this is actually an incredibly douchey thing to say. Imagine you go visit your friend and he has lung cancer, and you say "Well, I wouldn't have smoked all those cigarettes." This is like that; we don't need you acting like you know what to do with Margiela sneakers.

    Fuck man you don't even take care of your shit, you bought those shit shoes and then didn't buy polish for them because you didn't want to spend the three dollars and 10 minute walk to duane reade to triple the life of your shoes.

    You don't own nice shit, you buy dumb "designer-ish" pieces instead of the real thing (like those ugly Puma mids -- which, by the way, I wouldn't have gotten paint on), you've managed to learn less about fashion than me despite living in NYC, and you top it off by being a dick.

    tl;dr Cool the Kid needs to STFU for like three months.

    Obviously there is more to what I had written, except I dont wanna post long xenox (sup?) diatribes.

    The guy was being a dick and did it on purpose, it wasn't an accident on his behalf. So if some douche just came up to you and stamped on your feet, with some douche bag grin on his face, what would you do?

    You guys (Sq, Cool the Kid) are dicks

    Whats the best Belstaff leather in your opinion? Panther? Brad? Looking for something in dark brown and is there anywhere I can get them for less than retail price?

    release your real-world anger on the internet. give in to the hate. become wrath. so the guy walked up to you and stepped on your shoes on purpose while laughing? [​IMG] this story actually sounds amusing. what did you do to piss the guy off?

    i really hope this isn't some lame-ass reference to menstruation.


    i've been on quite an anti-sexist rage lately. Be careful.

    @MagicTheGathering

    It wasn't what or how he wrote but assumptions in his point of view

    Also, chillax on defending the guy man, we get it, your bro's

    @SQ

    I don't know man, it coulda been the bird I was with. He just walked up to me and looked me in the eye while stepping on my shoes, it was surreal, laughing and shit.

    Douche bag apologized though

    The dive was one of those places were everyone knows each other, so they all know the girl I was with, probably some weird burnt hipster love connection.

    They are hipsters man, it's getting really bad overhere ATM, fuck.

    usually those who cry 'hipster' are themselves 'hipsters'. just saying.

    this is why i wear my emma hopes to sketch bars. if they get stepped on they just look better.
