    lol you been lurking sz?

    i post there every few months if that. i like some of the individual pieces that show up but as a whole it's not an aesthetic i am into. mostly i like the footwear, but in this case the ccp pants esp in white would make for some interesting summer fits [​IMG]

    Those perforations might be really nice for the warmer months, though I'd be really self conscious wearing them.

    If I was young and full of money I'd kop so much CCP. His tailoring is really nice.

    Yeah but you kinda need both, lol.

    I'll probably pick up some derbies and tornado boots when I see them, and I'd like a taped short sleeve T and a long sleeve wire shirt too. All CCP wardrobe would be pretty amazing. His pants with the internal belt and all the handwork are just so tasty, the fencing leather is breathtaking and his jeans / casual pants are great.

    I wanna add some CCP but it will be over time. Some of the stuff he does is just breathtaking.

    Out of curiosity have you ever seen the pieces from that collection in real life?

    nope. maybe my opinion would change.

    Matchesfashion sent me a 50 pound gift card because they flaked on my MMM kop.

    That's rather kind, especially as other times I've had to chase up e-retailers just to get my money refunded when things haven't gone through.

    I feel pretty much the same way; I love a lot of the pieces, legitimately enjoy the aesthetic, but dislike a lot of the faux-highbrow discussion that goes on, and I find it all too homogeneous. I think I would mix a lot of it with my current wardrobe/similar things and be pretty happy. For example, CCP perf jeans (like I'll ever afford) I think could be worn in a lot of neat ways, and wouldn't necessarily require painting bloody tears on my face. Same thing with a lot of the leathers/basics/individual things. When people start posing with swords, I kind of have to roll my eyes.

    good luck. the real thing pops up on ebay once every 6 months or so. I lost out the last time around.

    I did find something that looked relatively like it recently for $25. The only problem was that it was from Baby Gap for toddlers. [​IMG]
