    I feel both MHL and OL has way more thought behind them than AKoG, even if they're sort of "basic". I disagree that MHL doesn't have interesting cuts, and OLs profile lies elsewhere.

    Best comparison for AKoG imo is "expensive YMC".

    i bought a shirt and pants from AkOG a year or two back.. i don't think i've worn them more than twice for some reason.. just not something i gravitate towards. may be a bit too boring, like dww said. still costs a fair bit tho..

    Good question re: AKoG. Every once and a while I get really into the provenance of clothes, and want something classic and true to the source. I pick it up, admire it, but hardly ever wear it. I like the idea of timeless classics, but I lean more on the fashion-is-change side of the spectrum.

    I'm looking at helmut lang sponge fleece curved legged joggers. Are there cheaper alternatives (maybe different fabric)? Or should I just go for the lang's?

    What shops to check out in Berlin? Anything expected to be open on 1/1?

    Firmament for sure. Actually that's probably pretty perfect for you with your recent guerilla group steez. Carry acronym and sisp and the Nike acg stuff.

    Totally agree. What I like to wear ≠ what I like to look at.



    I've never been, but Darklands?

    Also, styfobros in direct response marketing (I'm sure there are some of you out there): Do you look at direct mail campaign performance based on drop date (the day the mail house sends the piece) or expected in-home date (the day recipients are supposed to get the piece in the mail)? My inclination is the former, since it's more concrete and easier to capture (seed lists give a rough idea, but it's always going to vary), but I'll concede that the latter is more relevant to recipient responses. Thoughts?
