    That picture is not of him.
    You are an idiot.
    I don't see how trolling could be any fun for you, being so bad at it.

    You're right, I should have bought the leather in black.

    no, you just don't understand the capabilities of fashion as art.

    AA tri-blend fabric is icky. It pills easily when rubbed against stuff and tends to look schlubby, similar to a gym shirt. I believe AA has even marketed some of their shirts utilizing this fabric as "gym shirt" as if that were a positive trait!

    MofM tees have very nice fabric. They change the fabric composition slightly every season, often including less common materials such as silk and wool into their blends. But despite this their fabric overall tends to look and feel like a high end, super smooth cotton.

    Lad Musician fabric feels similar to MofM, yet it is 100% cotton. Even after many washes it does not pill, shrink, or loose it's shape-- exactly the opposite of AA's 100% cotton fabric.

    wjk fabric is usually 100% cotton and is heavy and thick. And some of their $150 tees have insanely thick fabric. These are the highest quality thick tees I've ever handled.

    Silent fabric is ok. While it's nicer than AA, it is simply not in the same league as the nicer Japanese fabrics. Silent is the most overrated brand. The $100 Forward charges for Silent tees is overpriced-- they are more like $30 tees which is about what Gilt was charging.


    Not sure how I missed this the first time around. Many thanks for the additional info. I'll have to look out for Lad Musician. I definitely like my MoM tee, but I'm not sure what'll happen post-wash.

    Also...I kinda like the piling and the schlubbiness on AA tri-blends. [​IMG] On some t-shirts, it just feels "right" in a weird way. It helps that all of my AA tri-blends are concert t-shirts, I guess.

    lying furtively
    Stopped by Sydney's today in Toronto. We got to talking at it turns out they are getting into in-house production, first suits and then shoes. He's sourced some nice materials, showed me a few samples, the cuts were pretty minimalist. Shoes are still initial stages of talks, he has to find a nice tannery and leather source (local ones are elk, deer, other big game which isn't so great for footwear), so that won't materialize until later. But the suiting was pretty nice. He had to abandon some more directional pieaces, no more Rick stuff for example. But the ma+ selection was nice, along with some other japanese lines virdi attachment IS etc. Other side was the belgiun lineups. Jil infinity jacket and the one-piece wallet were tempting but I had to resist... Nomad will be getting the w+h sneakers and may be able to locate the Ace-exclusive bath robes (Roden sold out really fast but he's the main guy for w+h anyway so no wonder he got them in) which I'd love. I did get a w+h sweater with the ugly extra stitching but I really liked the color and softness, also glad I got what I did back in the day with the riri, new hardware seems kinda disappointing in comparison [​IMG]

    You're going to have to let us know how the final products turn out. I am very interested in this.

    Found an Undercover M65 looking jacket with some great detailing like a see through section on the end of the sleeve where your watch would be. It was at some consignment store up in SF but it was closing and my GF was rushing me to leave and ended up not getting it. Now I want it bad! [​IMG]
