    Speaking of weekenders has anybody bought/seen/handled the Common Projects bags? I have an old Ervell backpack but I want a basic, black leather duffle and CP ones look good on sale.

    Oi Polloi has a leather Barbour bag on sale, but you have to be in Europe to purchase it.

    Otherwise, i think Frank Clegg's stuff is nice.

    Margiela also makes a ton of different designs, some of which are on sale right now.

    eBay will have some nice vintage Hermes pieces, but you're looking at like $3k+

    Either mu Google-fu is terrible, or nobody carries Stephan Schneider in Hong Kong any more.

    I'm thinking it's the former.

    I.T stopped carrying it, and another small shop that carried the brand closed down, if I recall.

    Barbour bags aren't bad for the price, but the metal fixings are pretty grim and don't last long. Having said that I've yet to find anyone that uses dog-clips that stand up to reasonable use (suggestions welcome!).

    Stumbled upon the Studio D'Artisan store in Osaka last weekend while doing some New Years traveling and am a firm believer in their menswear brand ORGUEIL now. Everything made in Japan, top quality 1930s style Americana gear and fits really slim - a 38 on my wiry frame was perfect. Honestly fills a similar niche to FW14 Junya but unsurprisingly costs much less.

    Couldn't resist and bought their 'Old Surge Jacket', fits like a dream and is pure quality, as you'd expect from Studio D'Artisan.

    Proper lighting and color:

    The "random fashion thought" in here is that it's gratifying to find something that really resonates with you aesthetically without having been told by someone else that it's good. So much out there, especially in Japan, I have yet to discover.

    Orgueil means pride but is purely pejorative (i.e. arrogance).

    Thanks for the tip. I'll probably give them a shot, although I wish the necklines were a little lower. (I can't stand to wear anything that goes above the tips of my collarbones. Not sure why. I should probably seek therapy.)



    My GF has used Weebly, but only for ecommerce, which seems to be its intended purpose. Let me know if you have any questions and I can pass them along or get the two of you in touch directly.

    I suppose it takes a bit of that to post pics of yourself in front of a mirror on the Internet :laugh:

    For what it's worth, their Tokyo store is sensationally named "M'Arijuan" http://www.dartisan.co.jp/shop/tokyo/
