    And, the S.N.S Herning preview - a new color,and new body and pattern (for the archives), the Ion cardigan. There are actually several colors, including a blue melange that I version that I will surely get. Soren is the size of a Norse God, so when he asked me to post only one pic, and leave the rest for March, I said, "Okay".

    Funny how a cardigan can blow away some heavy hitting outerwear.

    I'm home after a whirlwind week, so it's as good a time to post some pictures as any. Here are some looks from Monitaly, including a completely awesome blue bomber with a fur collar from Monitaly that Yuki called "very conservative", Yuketen boots and a dark green version of their "English" bag, and one of the big trends (one with I love) that was super strong for FW12, and continues even stronger into 2013, jersey jackets in pressed wool, boiled wool, etc... there is one from Ts(S) and from one of my favorite new (well, 6 seasons old) label Harris Wharf London:

    Jersey Jackets from

    Harris Wharf London:

    Some of the collar "meltons" are more obvious - they are meant to be worn up, more like a mandarin collar than anything else. Some of them are really interesting and subtle, like this one, which uses contrasts a houndstooth with a herringbone.

    Maybe I'm really good in bed, like the Sartorialist. Yeah, the S.N.S Herning collection was terrific. I think that you might like some of he Harris Wharf stuff for casual use as well. I find my jacket from them as comfortable as a cardigan, but more streamlined. You can throw it over a tee, and you are good to go. If you are going out at night in LA, add a scarf or something. It's a company run by a brother and sister whose family owns a mill, so all of the fabrics they use, including the boiled and press wool jerseys, often double sided, for winter, are proprietary. A lot of Japanese and European stockists, but so far, only Barney's carries them in the States. Price in the States is about $625 for the patterned wools, or 400 Euros or so, including VAT.

    Awesome pics, LA Guy.

    Do you know if you saw any Engineered Garments there? I believe they're also showing at Pitti.

    I did, and I said hi to Angelo and Daiki, briefly. They have a strict no pictures policy, however, so unfortunately, I can't post any pictures. Of course, you'll still probably see some bootleg pictures other places, probably during the American shows.

    I can't even begin to describe how much I love what Yuketen does -- my big complaint with Russell, Quoddy, Rancourt, OSB etc. is that they're basically making the same shoe/moc as one another. But Yuketen has really stretched out the USA Handsewn brand. Now I wish they were about 50% cheaper but that's the price for creativity, I guess. Ah well, someday...

    Yuki is also hilarious. For example, I asked him about the "teeth" on the boots, and he told me "like a shark", which was the most succinct description I've heard for a while. He really has fun with his designs while working really hard on them. It might be a west coast thing. He is based in CA, while a lot of the other brands are based in NYC. The lookbook is nothing ponderous either. Once I get it in my hands (it is hardcover, and not generally released - I'm not sure what the point of it is, actually) I'll scan some of the photos. The narrative has two of his guys ("We are a cheap company, we use all our employees as models" was what he said) going on a hunt over some vintage Louis Vuitton luggage, and then, after some chases and fisticuffs, having a drink together.


    Yeah - well, it's sold at Nitty Gritty Store, and at e35, and the German Bazar Royal (www.bazarroyal.com). It fits slightly bigger than Barena. I take a 48 in both, but I could easily size up to a 50 in Barena jackets for a more relaxed fit (btw, do not try to wash your Barena sweaters without a stretching rack. Mine has been skin tight for a while, and has just started to relax up a bit). A size 50 in Harris Wharf London is too big on my frame.

    Then I'd be a 50 thanks.
