    yeah snow the james blake ep is enough thunder as steve said. :slayer:

    i like that fishtail except it looks a little short than I'd like it. my toj has really grown on me. intiially it was a bit bigger than I had wanted (interestingly it fits me fine, is a bit loose in the body but not bad, and hilariously it also fits my 6'4 roommate PERFECTLY although it's just past my knee and about lower thigh for him, I should post a pic of both of us wearing it) it but I've been wearing some of my outewear a bit looser lately + I've put on a little muscle and it's really working well now. unsure if I would have preferred brown over navy as that would probably compliment my wardrobe a bit better, but the navy is still great and surprisingly versatile. a cracked pepper would've been epic or other tweed or heathered texture.

    No, I'm very biased. Yeah, the collection was... not particularly cohesive, to be charitable.

    I just happen to admire people with cojones and hate whiny bitches.

    Not so hard to understand, I think.

    It's admirable that Kanye wants to put out a quality line by himself, is trying to learn from other talented designers, and isn't just putting his name on some shit line to make money.

    I've read that he wanted to intern for Raf or Louis Vuitton and wanted to attend some prestigious school in Paris. Did he do any of that? How much experience does he have besides going to fashion shows for 5 years? Should he really be showing in Paris?

    It's clearly amateur work and just looks like he threw together things from other designers that he liked in the past. I feel like he's trying to put himself on the same playing field as other designers and making a big deal out of this but he's just not there.

    He works with such a small team that his crazy shit is just so damn crazy that one piece probably takes them 10 months. Never to see the light of day. Might as well make my own lion transformer parka.

    re: kanye's collection and shit


    I'd hate to see a man's collection by him, i can't imagine anything good coming out of him going down that path

    Alright guys, I have a problem here:

    I have interviews with Deloitte and Ernst & Young coming up next month for summer internships (BBA student). I've never really owned a proper suit before, and I'm hesitant to purchase one online, as I feel it's easier than other pieces of clothing to mess up suit sizing.

    I looked up my local mall, and here is a store directory of "Men's Fashion" shops that they have:

    Abercrombie & Fitch
    Aeropostale
    American Eagle Outfitters
    Banana Republic
    Buckle, The
    Eddie Bauer
    Express
    FOSSIL
    Gap
    H&M (no suits)
    Hollister Co.
    Hot Topic
    J.Crew
    Journeys
    Lids
    M Den
    PacSun

    Where am I supposed to get a presentable suit from? I really want to be properly dressed so that I can make a good first impression - I really want to secure a summer internship with one of these companies to remain competitive next year - but I don't think that there's a decent store anywhere locally that I can purchase a decent suit from. Any ideas?
