Gotta follow the hype.
I already have a cape, Banderas is so last year.
hell yes on capes
you have a pair of their denim, right? googled the brand and saw an old post of yours. Still feel the same about construction (you said it was pretty bad iirc)? I honestly like their panelling and details more than other brands but unsure if I'll make the purchase
Yep, construction and sizing sucks. I do like their panelling though. The top block is sized super weirdly, I've got a 30 inch waist, but I still have to wear a belt with their 28's, despite them being described as true-to-size.
Best thread on capes:
Suitcase with built in charger.
The article is interesting but I don't see a lot of the connections he draws, for example:
Quote: Really don't see anything innovative and how beauty and craftsmanship are different. I'm confused by his use of "class." Wearing sashiko dyed shirts might be classy as in stylish, but never as strong of a signifier of social class as even Brooks Brother which targets a much more specific culture of men and lifestyle, and their implied social status. All I've seen are that labels whose reputation and aesthetic blatantly evoke either the nouveau riche or old rich are generally frowned upon. Calling internet fashion a "class-centric" project apart from the egalitarian nature of the forum itself seems a bit ridiculous. There are still conservative factions of fashion forums like CM and SZ in its own way. The biggest thing, in my opinion, that's changed in the past ten or so years is the rise of fast fashion.
Quote: Maybe menswear has embraced different cultural influences post fashion forums, I wouldn't know, but that has nothing to do with race.
Tetsuo wore a red cape, so maybe sufu will be hitting up Zorro for some of that Akira steeze.
Hope all our Parisian bros are safe tonight.
