    I was in Trickers a couple weeks ago. The guy at the store was telling me that their shell will blister. He indicated that Horween shell is much better that whatever company Trickers sources their shell from.

    He did tell me why they don't buy Horween but of course I forgot. Might have been import tariffs etc.

    What photography forums have you tried? I've never had one stick, there's just so little, I don't know, cross-pollination?

    Like they are too focused - photography is such a broad hobby (art history, blogs, taking photos, locations, personalities, equipment, processing, printing, tonnes of cool shit) yet the conversations are often so staid...

    Last comment on this but made it a point to go check out some Vetements stuff in person. Actual garments were great. Bomber proportions are skewed all around, and actually a lot in common with the Undercover one I pointed out, though I think the Vetements runway one in the pic was different than what i saw in store based on the sleeves (different season I guess). Some clever stuff, and sophisticated whether they like it or not. Then looked at the last show again and actually laughed. Think they may be doing themselves a disservice with that.

    Photo forums are way too gear-orientated for me. The technical side of photography is pretty boring, but it's all most enthusiasts focus on. I stopped looking for forums a while ago, but am open to suggestions too, if anyone has some.

    I would not put Obenauf's on the suede side. You'd probably need some kind of spray, but I Haven't tried any. Fiebings Water Protector Spray might do the trick, but I would test it on a scrap of leather first.



    I usually wait at least a few hours after applying it and buff off all of the excess with a soft cloth. It will feel a tad sticky to the touch, but that's only because it is wax. It won't get on your clothes, though.

    The garments are certainly clever. There's not doubt about that. His appointment by Balenciaga makes me wonder what they were looking for in a new creative director. Keeping in mind that in spite of all the hype, designers don't typically have bags of money, and that the luxury companies and their parent companies do, the luxury companies hold the power during interviews and negotiations, and a designer probably has to bring more than a small, albeit of the moment, label, to the table, to be appointed as creative director. I seriously doubt that the courting was particularly one-sided.

    Random lower Manhattan fashion observation thoughts (as someone who doesn't live in NYC):

    It feels like this whole town is wearing Stan Smiths or variants thereof
    If it's not those, it's CPs. I think I saw $8k worth of CPs on one day this week
    I saw probably one pair of GATs each day
    Danny Bowien looks pretty cool with a tucked-in shirt and jeans
    There's still biker jackets everywhere
    Tokio 7 is serious. I think I spent two hours just looking at stuff
    The rick stooges I tried on there is also serious
    Abasi Rosborough blazers are brilliant but $$$$
    That Camoshita waffle knit blazer (not where I saw it but you can get it at NMWA) from this season is gorgeous
    The Kapital ring coats at Blue in Green spoke to me, I had to buy one
    The Craig Green strappy things at Dover Street Market are preposterous and silly
    I loled at (with?) the Walter van Beirendonck rack at DSM
    the Geller Dominik is a cool coat
    The Soho Totokaelo is cool and all but the construction, with loud noises and the radio playing behind a translucent sheet in the men's area, added a good dimension on it

    PS hender scheme is gorgeous in person and shout out to Idol for putting up with my gawking friends who I convinced to come in there by describing the store as the "thousand dollar goth sweater store"

    This piece is probably my only "grail" as the kids call it. Did Margiela even release this in 2010? I think I've seen a short sleeve or long sleeve version but shit I'll even take the sleeveless if I could find it

    Yea after going to Paris I'd be okay never seeing another pair of Stan Smiths in my life... Except I was contributing to the problem because I also brought a pair as my only walking shoes.

    Vans slip ons ftw. At least that hasn't been copied to death by designers like the Chuck Taylor and Stan Smith shoes.
