    The hardest brand to buy sight unseen - Rick Owens and DRKSHDW. I have no idea how people do it. They are cut to fit... peculiarly. The jackets are narrow, with an assymmetric hem that is considerably longer in the front than the back, and the arms are narrow and super long. No wonder so much of it ends up in Sufu marketplace.


    Every pair of drkshdw jeans i've owned, tried on, or seen measurements in a sale thread are different. Same with the jackets. I had a denim jacket in medium that fit like a full medium. I've seen measurements for a similar jacket in medium but in a slightly different wash and slightly different design but the measurements fit like an xs. Ridiculous

    I've seen so many ninja and other labels in the classifieds on sufu and sz (with the few instances I've looked) that it's mind blowing. If they truely liked these pieces they wouldn't let them go which only means one thing and that is they're mostly due to forum hype. Everyone will get excited over something then realizing it was a lamentable pickup they will hype it up even more to try and unload it.

    There are waaayyyy too many rick owens basic plain short sleeved tees, long sleeve tees, and tank tops in sz/sufu buy and sell. With how saturated that market is, people shouldnt' be surprised when no one buys it for $225 or whatever they ask. Gotta drop that shit below $150 if you want a prayer of selling it.

    It's like diors on sufu. 2 years ago 19cms brand new and slightly used sold for $325-400. Last fall and now people couldn't give those away and i saw raw diors going for between $150-225. Gotta strike while the iron is hyped

    My friend, a pretty normal average guy (not into clothing at all), recently went on a trip to China and apparently really enjoyed Zara and Uniqlo, bought some decent stuff there.

    Caught a glimpse of the new Ervell over at SZ. They mostly hated it, not surprisingly, but I quite like it. Sort of standard Ervell fare; perhaps that is what I like it everytime..? I enjoy the colors used, and I'm pretty sure the fabrics will be up to par as usual. I could definitely see myself wearing a lot of the tops/jackets. Oh, and no air jackets, as far as I could tell.

    I'm going to buy a bunch of trilby's.

    The new steven alan hats are more expensive than I thought.

    Yeah, I like the floppy fall trilby, but $160??

    The Jcrew wool trilby is more structured and therefore a little more tragic, but it's still wool and under $50.

    I say go for the EG top hat, Mayim.

    I know this topic keeps coming up, but regarding one-question threads: there are a lot of veteran posters doing it now too...

    ^^ It's getting a hell of a lot better though. There's a ton of content in the forum's front page now because nearly 100% of the threads are multi-page.
