I have one of I+W's graphic tees and I love it. I don't find the quality to be an issue at all; they're meant to have that "vintage tee" feel to them. Broken-in, soft, a bit thinner. If you're expecting a heavier duty tee on the level of 3Sixteen, Lady White Co., etc., then you'll be disappointed. If you want a soft, cozy tee, then these are great.

I just found the graphic tees to be even shorter than their color block tees. Color block tees I like a lot but the cut is different on the graphic ones

Heyyy I watched another movie.

L'Amour l'après midi aka Chloe in the Afternoon (Eric Rohmer, 1972). A moral tale about turtlenecks and temptation.


Protagonist loooves a good black tnecked 3-pcs suit (CM double yikes, the 70s etc). Directional.

Good leg volume (+ good heel height)

The end.



Two things I noticed. Freaking massive belts with suits (see above) and comically deep center vent on the jackets. Not sure if it's a period thing or a designer's idiosyncrasy (suits by Daniel Hechter for the curious).

Random trivia, there's an US remake directed by Chris Rock

One of my faves. You might already know but it was big inspiration for Lemaire AW19 (the suits, tnecks, pajamas, etc). There was a viscose shirt modeled after one in La Collectionneuse too.

I+W tee talk: I have an old blue tee from them. Very soft, very thin. I have two graphic tees from them (born to lose & hot sauce devil) and they’re pleasantly a little thicker. In terms of construction, it’s a tee, it’s fine. what am I supposed to expect? I do like how the necks on the tees age in their wash process. Oh and I also like their dead Mickey graphic

Henry Stewart used to make suits like that. Broad, padded shoulders, slim waist, long skirt, and a very high vent.

Some young guy once found a Henry Stewart suit in the attic of some Connecticut home. The suit was made for Paul Newman.

This photo doesn't show the vent, but it's likely as high as the one in that movie.

Newman of any era is obviously a style icon, but “Color of Money” era Newman (assuming that suit was for the film) is just truly superhuman levels of swag. Can’t easily find a picture of the DB camel overcoat he wears in that movie but it’s just otherworldly.

That's pretty cool, I had no idea actually. Costume design on Rohmer's film is always on point, very solid through the 90s too (same for Rivette, Gang of Four is 10/10 on fashion). And Lemaire referencing of 70s and 80s fashion is unparalleled imo, just the right balance.

Slim waist long skirt jackets are awesome (with structured but not too broad shoulders pls). I think that's the thing I like the most about 70s tailoring, or at least my patchy notion of it. I'd wear it, big vent and all.

Still, so strange looking...
