I’m looking to buy some mudcloth fabric, maybe a mudcloth throw. Does anyone have a good online resource? Something sourced from West Africa?
No idea but maybe @Tirailleur1 could advise? I know he has made some cool things at Post Imperial.. I think with different dying processes and fabric sourced in Africa.

Thoughts on Loewe's Paula's Ibiza capsule, especially the sunglasses?





Thick, chunky acetate made in Italy. Obnoxious as fuck. Makes JMM look like Oliver Peoples. The white pair looks like a sleazy version of the clout goggles Cobain used to wear.

The smiley face capsule was nostalgic of raves, this year a bohemian clothes for rich people vibe:

I've bought mudcloth from a local fabric store (African owned, though), and I've seen mudcloth sold online on eBay and Etsy as well as local craft fairs if you have any in your area.

Thanks I saw some resources on Etsy. Wasn’t sure of the sourcing, though

Woah, most of these are VERY local. I'm sure there some ONG financed cooperative but the mud dying and denim dying stuff is often literally done in some outside zone at a completely artisanal-local level from what I have seen.

With that said I have a sort of kurta from Jan-Jan Van Essche that includes some parts with west african local techniques so it can be sourced at a high quality designer level (with an arguably niche brand).

The TrackSmith stuff always looks fantastic but most of their items I've tried are absolutely horrible at wicking water/sweat away and can get weighed down pretty quickly if you are one to sweat a lot on your runs.

Their winter running tights however are absolutely stellar and worth the price.

I do sort of want to try their popovers, polos, and rugby shirts but I doubt I would actually ever use one of those for running.
