Thought you were just taking a piss till I clicked. Wow.
Yep, to get rid of the middleman, they'd have to get rid of themselves. There's zero difference actually between what the structure of their supply chain vs what J Crew does - or for that matter what we do. There isn't any less link in their chain.
What? A business is successful from running a puffed-up marketing narrative? That's pretty much every business ever. The Toyota Prius, with a carbon footprint that rivals an American pickup truck; expensive "limited edition" designer sneakers made by children working for a bowl of rice a day; Armani sewing the buttons on a Chinese shirt in rural Italy and calling it "made in Italy;" Taylor Stitch's utter crap "perfect tee"; Bonobos and their KDB; any watch brand launched in the last ten years, the McDonalds salad.......
Shout out for Patagonia, one of the truly ethical brands out there. With no sense of style. >sigh<
You want to be "ethical," go start a farm and learn some DIY skills.
I'm curious what specific garments, that are generally accepted as: "timeless", "classic", "stylish" pieces, that you guys don"t understand the appeal of, or just plain hate? On the underhand, what garment designs do you love? Your favorite?
I for instance, don't like button down collars, tassel loafers, and pants with pleats, I hate polo shirts, love wing tips, plain toe oxfords and my favorite are Type 3 truckers (it pisses me off when they modify the design by making the hand warmer pockets cover those slimming "v" seams on the front, ...fuck you gustin)
I like button collars on oxfords which are the obvious choice, tassel loafers and pleated pants.
Polos are never acceptable, however.
+1 room & board will fit the bill. good quality, low price. went to bo concept last week end and actually was pleasantly surprised by the prices. We visited a bunch of other stores before stopping there, and at least boconcept didnt strike me as overpriced after all...
converse chuck taylors and jack purcells, adidas stan smiths and superstars (and sambas), GATs, nike dunk lows, puma clyde, and onitsuka tigers are all hideous shoes that are offensive for me to look at (0)
MMM GATs and chuck look alikes like CP Achilles too?
I can't stand those blue shirts with the white collars. Or French cuffs worn without a jacket. Black motorcycle jackets paired with white sneakers. Not a classic, but I still carry my irrational loathing of Canada Goose coats.
Oddly though, the urban ninja man skirt thing is growing on me. At least I've seen some guys in NYC that managed to pull it off well.
Double breasted anything
Short sleeve buttoned shirts that your science teacher wears
Puffy down jackets
Timberland work boots
Air Jordan 4's, I've never owned a pair, but those Hender Schemes tho...
Air Force 1's
Side zip boots <-Does that count?
Denim style jackets
Liberty printed shirts
Hermes H belts are the tackiest accessory possible.
Man, I won't buy anything pricier than Old Navy/Gap for my kids. They outgrow everything so fast. I'm sad when they outgrow a Gap sweater before they've even worn it.
