    ^some whiz stuff has nice details, post up the rest of what you've got!


    Here is some stuff from WrenEgg, out of New York.

    Going to hopefully check out a few of their things in person tonight, will report back.

    ^^This is the star in my eyes, but here is some more straightforward stuff - reminds me of CdG SHIRT

    well I went to check out the WrenEgg stuff at this pop up sort of market tonight, and unfortunately they didn't have any of the men's clothing out yet. I talked to one of the designers for a bit though and he said they're still working on it and about halfway through - it will debut in August. He did make it sound like if I got in touch with him I could get my hands on some stuff a little early, but I don't want to get ahead of myself in this thread.

    All they had for sale were some bags made with what I think were custom fabrics, and some bracelets.

    The designer I talked to was wearing the same APC camo jacket I have, and he had this custom Barbour jacket on over it:

    I kind of like it.


    I also talked to the director of sales for Serum Vs. Venom (SVSV) and tried on some of their stuff - they mostly only had larger sizes but I may go back to get this one cardigan/jacket. she also mentioned they might be able to work out a custom fitting as well, for some of their cooler coats, which is the same thing the guy at the Henrik Vibskov boutique told me, so I don't think they're bluffing :slayer:

    Have you seen this blog?
    The guy mostly posts japanese stuff.
    Not only high end and obscure though. Some stuff is actually wearable. Great clothes anyway.

    My ideal backpack
    North Face Purple Label
    Harris tweed and what seems to be suede
    It's not high-end and obscure, but it's japanese and very hard to get.

    yeah I really like the ones you picked. That mac jacket in the last shot was really cool, and looked good in all of the other colors too. I like the way the collar fastens and the rest of it is open creating that upside down V shape showing the layers underneath
