    "Suspect?" What the hell are you talking about? Once Theory bought them they were able to move just about everything in-house. Keep in mind, prior to '07 their main focus was denim. Since then, they've done collabs with Grenson, Loro Piana, Martin Greenfield, etc.
    exactly. theory helping them improve their finances is just suspicious since theory's model is producing garbage and hyping the name. of course, to some this might be good news

    I have no doubt that 90% of people on SF would kick this guys ass if he actually cut it.

    Strange thing is, this is one of the few guys I know who's into clothing and actually looks well-dressed most of the time.

    Because of finances it's suspicious? It's been three years and their stuff has only improved. I mean, have you actually seen rag & bone pieces in person?

    In other words, your conclusions are based on speculation based on no evidence.

    you didn't read my post above i was just at the sample sale and the wall at barneys is loaded with the stuff. nothing spectacular, like i said some people might like the direction they're taking and good for them getting collab deals. the stuff was never terrible quality but just boring to me.

    Dude just stop. Rag and Bone is great right now. I don't know what you saw at the sample sale but I would pick up a very large amount of the current FW collection.

    LOL. So you're basing your Theory "suspicions" on what STYLE you saw THIS season at a SAMPLE SALE? ffs...

    Don't give a fuck if the people who make my clothes are assholes, all I care about is having nice shit that looks good. R&B are doing it pretty well right now of course YMMV.

    All of the people who make TOJ clothes are the nicest people on earth. I force them to do one thoughtful thing for others each day.

    Remind me again what Theory's earnings have to do with Rag & Bone's quality?

    1+1= grapefruit?

    cutting margiela tags is silliness

    For jersey pieces, it makes sense to do so, and I have in several cases - the thread is stronger than the fabric, and can cause the fabric to tear if there is any stress at those points at all.

    Which is the only reason he probably even noticed the tag or gave enough of a damn to attempt to cut it. There are a lot of people who fall into this category - have a good sense of fit and can deal with colour but still do all their shopping at the mall. Yet these people have internalized the compliments and adopted the "stylish guy" title and hence feel a need to point out and remedy things like cut tags, both buttons done up on a 2b suit, etc.
