    hlorenzo has all its Ann D stock for 50% off right now, you might want to check them out.

    On another note, anyone knows how attachment pants/jeans fit? Not sure if I am a size 4 or size 5.

    Chinese fakes are supposed to be the best (fwiw; fts), but there are some impressive manufacturers of fakes in Korea, too. I remember taking the escalator in the Doota wholesale clothing mall in Dongdaemun up to the men's clothing section (third floor?), and the first store right by the escalator had fake Dick Ovens dunks set out right in front. It was like the end of Terminator 2 when Schwarzenegger rode the industrial winch-thingie from out of nowhere and shot T-1000 with the grenade-launcher:

    Of course, up close the leather looked grainy, and I didn't think twice about buying them. But from far away, the fake shit looked like pure sex.


    Man, I've been up close in the "back room" with all kinds of supposed best-quality Chinese fakes, and they always look cheap and feel like shit. From 20 feet away they're passable, but it's all just garbage.

    BB1 would be the guy to ask, he's got a handful of them.

    Most of the best fakes I saw from China (in Korea) were womens handbags, like Goyard 시장가방 and shit, and there seemed to be no difference. But with menswear and even women's designer clothing, I imagine there's less of a discerning market for top of the line fakes for Dick Dunks and Gareth Pugh lady space jackets.

    I'm stoked because of all the japanese streetwear I'll be buying in F/W. Elmendorf is definitely getting hit with the tax return.

    god, watching the middle-aged anorexic texan women swathed in fur try to make their way around Vail village without cracking a stiletto is like looking into the face of death.

    I got interested in New Balances again last summer after I saw my favorite shop on Rakuten was using them for almost all of the modeling pics.

    I liked the nike x undercover collab, but personally could only see myself wearing that kind of stuff when working out.
