    I think I finally "get" the front-zip damir boots from 09. Also, I would crush in a pair of acne pilot boots.

    took that shit to the next clown looking level.


    jil is more about producing the most incredibly engineered garments (ala german style) and minimalism than it is about fit imo. i think good fit is just a product of those two. there are many other brands with just as good a fit.



    Fit is hard for me to describe since it may have gotten easily mixed up with slim or "tailored". A collection can consist of full pants and boxed jackets and still constitute a good fit. Something that Jil isn't afraid to return to every once and awhile.

    If Tumblr is to be trusted, most young black men living in NYC dress like that now.

    black + physically fit = style on kids.

    i couldn't agree more. i think that style is simply a weak cry for attention. in no way is it actually comfortable. there are two dudes in DC trying to start a brand of 'dandy' accessories. its all just crap to me and i dont know a single girl that actually goes for guys that wear that sort of shit.

    I heard an interesting interview with Simon Doonan on NPR a little while back, and someone asked him about designers and the economy, particularly, whether he felt that collections were affected by the recessionary times. He said "No, but the buying gets more conservative, because buyers think that people are less likely to splurge on crazy things" and he went on to say that he didn't know whether or not this was the case or not. So, essentially, he was saying that buyers' perceptions, whether accurate or not, dictate, to a large degree, what is available - not the designer's, not the end customer's.

    This was the most incisive bit of fashion analysis I've heard in a while.

    I wish that more fashion commentators were as smart as Doonan.

    GN was trying too hard with some of his points, but there's absolutely no discussion about fashion other than whether or not I should kop something on here, which frankly makes it kinda boring sometimes.

    hehe, reading that made me understand why I feel such a tremendous attachment to the brand.
