    No, dear god, we are not putting them in the ff category. At least I hope not. I love Urban Outfitter for simple stuff like a reverse weave or something ordinary like that. Or say Rick and Morty socks, in the event that I ever needed Rick and Morty socks. That kind of stuff.

    It's just that this sort of neural glitch takes place whenever I find out something I like from a cool elite boutique is also carried at places like Urban Outfitters. In my mind the cool elite boutique is up here (raises hand high) and Urban Outfitters is sort of down here (lowers hand quite a bit). Whatever that means. It attacks my sense of sophistication and taste and I get totally embarrassed with myself for a second. I'm probably just insecure.


    @tonio028 I really hope it fits you, it's sick that you bought the whole suit!

    i vote number 1, seems like it would go with everything you wear. who makes it pls?
    i've tried the margiela dww mentioned and yeah the material is not textured enough. the raf calvin ones are great but shoulder is quite structured, a bit like old margiela, dunno if that's the kind of look you want.

    That’s funny. I was going to bring them up the next time you asked for suggestions for the shop but I guess that would be redundant.

    I like Auralee but haven’t looked to closely since it’s hapanese I just assume it won’t fit me.

    Are there any good casentino coats this season that would work with a SWD wardrobe? If not casentino then some kind of boule or similar?

    @happyriverz I got no issues with patch pockets but the flap pocket usually look too bulky and weird on coats. Those one are big enough though.
    That’s a cool coat but not something id wear or buy. It’s cool though and I never look at Uma Wang, I legit get it confused with Ziggy Chen all the time

    I love the fabrics on her pieces, just incredible, but have only seen womenswear stuff in person. The menswear distribution is almost non-existent in the US.

    Food: Stock is surprisingly good (given it's white-dude riffs on SE Asian food) & affordable. Royal Izakaya is good and you'll end up spending more than you expected.

    Drink: Southwark is a nice bar for cocktails. I also like going to The International up in Fishtown/Kensington. Philly is a good town for beer drinking (lots of options). Not so great for wine.

    For jawnz or actual fun just go to New York.

    You should, she does some of the most incredible fabrics and a lot of the stuff seems very easy to wear...........Its very different from Ziggy Chen. Ziggy is probably more heavier and rugged even though both would fall in the "romantic artisanal" category
