    It's probably something to do with those buttons...

    http://www.kapital.jp/e-store/detail.php?id=K1409KN155&key=5161&category=65 Hand-knit in Japan, and, as usual, significantly cheaper. Edit: And I missed the most interesting/cost-adding part: It's actually knit deer leather, which you can kind of see in the close-up shots.

    I'm with you, that kind of "stylish kids" bullshit is prevalent now and this is where this comes from. I mean I sometimes had to wear suits when I was a kid but that was for special events, if you're 6 you want to wear a roman legionnaire outfit not some stupid cashmere sweater.

    At their price point I assume they might not even deal with multiple factories themselves but maybe with some main one that produces some pieces then dispatches others to various smaller outfits. In other words same as everyone else.

    I see a ton of Rollerboys, usually paired with SLP denim or cropped slacks and a manclutch

    How exactly is the Chanel basket a "runway piece?" Did the models walk while carrying the baskets? Maybe on their heads, like Egyptians?

    Chanel does outrageous themed sets every year, and one show featured a "supermarket" set.

    As a mainstay of their business, handbags are featured prominently.

    INA is just a consignor (and as a rule their product descriptions suck); I believe MSRP on the shopping baskets was at least $25K.

    Hate nothing more than the craft-beerd.

    IMHO, a brown corduroy suit with big peak lapels is not likely to change anybody's mind about DB.
    That is, unless the thing that put them off it in the first place was seeing skintight, crisp navy jackets paired with cropped skinny pants and monk straps by the GQ legion.

    I'm not a big fan of double-breasted in general but I've seen enough examples I like that it's not anathema to me.

    But that Eidos hits pretty well all the wrong (fusty) notes for me.

    I'll check out room & board, looked at boconcept today and it was a bit too modern for my taste. Spent $2k+ at restoration hardware for a basic wood queen bed frame and a night stand (frame was 50% off and nightstand was 25%, jesus haha). I got a few weeks though to think if I actually want it.

    I hate almost all sneaker styles, and especially any sneaker that's all-white in color. I love thin, fitted all-black turtle necks.
